Number of Hairs Lost in a Day

How many hairs do you lose in a day?

50 to 100.

The Mayo Clinic states that most people normally lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair in a day. This reflects just 0.05-1% of the total 100,000 hairs found in a normal, healthy scalp. As people age the number of shed hair increases gradually while the regeneration of new hair slows down.
