Hair & Hormones

When it comes to the health and quality or abundance of hair, hormones are in the driver’s seat. In the past decade, ground breaking new research has shown a defining link between thinning hair and fluctuations in estrogen and testosterone levels.


Normal vs. Abnormal Daily Hair Loss

Some hair loss or shedding of hair every day is normal for both men and women. We average 150,000 to 200,000 of hair on our scalps. Blondes generally have the most number of hairs followed by brunettes and then redheads.

At any given time, about 90 percent of your scalp hair is in the anagen stage (growing cycle) that lasts between 2 and 6 years. The remaining 10 percent of scalp hair is in the catagen stage stage (intermediate cycle) for 1 to 2 weeks before entering the telogen stage (resting cycle) which occurs over 5 to 6 weeks.
