Q Is it normal to lose some precious hairs every day?

Yes, hair cycles happen constantly, which explains why we lose about 100 hairs every day.

Q What are the different parts of a hair?

The medulla: this is the centre of the hair composed of big cells without nucleus The cortex: this is the middle layer which represents more than 90% of the hair mass. It looks like a long wire rope. The cuticle: this is the outer most layer formed by scale-like cells, like the tail of a lizard.

Q Why do we lose our hair?

The cause is often hereditary. This is actually a hyper sensitivity from some hairs to male hormones, but this is not an excess of male hormones. Moreover, hair loss is the result of a programming whose timing is different according to the place the hair is located.
