Dr. Oz, with the help of Maya (seat 51 from New Mexico), discussed the top two reasons women lose hair and what we can do about hair loss. Dr. Oz showed four samples of hair, and asked which amount represents the normal amount that an average person loses per day. You should basically be losing 50-100 hairs a day. In addition to looking in your shower drain and checking your brush, the best way to figure out how much hair you are losing is to grab an amount of hair that would fill a straw (about 4 mm of hair) and pull it gently from the base or root. If you lose more than 6 hairs when you do this, then you are losing about 10% of your hair. Dr. Oz only lost 1 hair when he did this and Maya
lost two… both of them have great, full heads of hair!
