Why would my hair start thinning? Am I doing something wrong?
What Causes Hair Loss In Women?
- Most of your hairs are already dead!
Each hair is made up of interlocked cells that are actually dead. They grow from follicles in the scalp which push living hair cells up through the skin at around 12 millimetres a month. Follicles contain capillaries and are stimulated by blood flow and nerve activity.
- And then they fall out
Each hair grows for up to seven years and then falls out. A new hair usually begins to grow in its place. At any one time approximately 85% of hair is growing and 15% is dying.
- Permanent hair loss is all about follicles
Hair loss is the result of hair not regrowing after falling out. This happens when the follicle does not receive sufficient blood flow and nerve stimulation.
