The average person will lose more than 50 strands of hair per day. This is normal and there is no real need to worry about the numbers. However, if you are male and men in your family are bald or becoming bald through hair loss, then it is likely you have also inherited this genetic trait. If this is the case, the amount of hair strands you lose per day will be more than 125. If you have indeed inherited the genetic trait, if you do not do something about it, it is likely that your hair loss issue will progress up to a point that you will become bald yourself.
