Why hair loss occurs?
It is common for hair shedding of about 100 strands daily but it is not noticeable as new hairs are growing to replace them. Hence, you do not need to worry if little strands of hair fall off.
However, if you notice your hair getting thinner each day, it is a sign that new hair growth is not replacing your fallen strands of hair. Hair loss can occur even on healthy scalps, here’s how to prevent it.
What are the Causes of Hair Loss?
The most common causes of hair loss is due to genetic history and the aging process.
If you have a family history of hair loss, it may be possible that you will notice thinning of hair starting at the age of 30s and 40s.

Itchy scalp is also another cause of hair loss. As mentioned in the previous blog post, frequent scratching will damage your scalp and this will affect new hair growth. With the damaged scalp, new hair growth cannot replace those strands of hair fall which result in baldness.
