For most of us, hair reflects our personality and plays a major role in boosting our self-confidence. It is normal for your confidence to increase when you feel your hair is beautiful and shiny. It helps you feel ready to face the challenges ahead of the day.
On the other hand, on days when your hair isn't looking so good, you might get frustrated and feel a little less confident. This, of course, includes how hair fall may make us feel.
Hair fall is a problem that many women face, and today there are numerous and various causes of hair fall - we will discuss them later! But first, here is a quick test to determine whether your hair fall is normal:
Hold a hair strand (20-40 hairs) with your thumb and forefinger, and drag it hard enough to pull your scalp, then count the number of hairs that fall. If you see more than 6 hairs, this is an indication* that your hair fall is beyond the normal range, and that you should see a doctor. You may also notice your hair falling a lot in bed, on your hairbrush or in the shower, all of which are signs of increased hair fall.
