Head and body #hair #loss happens to everyone; in fact research suggests that losing up to 100 strands of hair per day is normal. The hair goes through phases of growth, called the anagen and telogen phases. During the anagen phase, hair is in a growth cycle and during the telogen phase, hair is in a resting phase. It is during this phase that hair loss is experienced. Losing this hair allows for new hair growth and is part of the normal cycle of a hair follicle.
