Hair loss can be a confusing beauty concern to navigate. It’s totally normal to lose up to 150 strands per day, but when you feel like you’re shedding more than that number, there could be a number of reasons behind why your mane is losing density. In any event of concern, the best option is to chat with a medical professional—sometimes this symptom is due to something as little as weather changes or fluctuating hormones, or too much heat styling, but it also could be the result of a more serious issue.
While we suggest calling up the doc, there are products on the market that directly address aging or thinning hair. From supplements to scalp treatments, here are a few to check out and add to your shopping cart now.
