According to the Academy of Dermatology, forty percent of women have visible hair loss by the time they are 40 years old. While some women lose their hair in clumps, others experience gradual thinning over an extended period of time. Understanding the early signs of hair loss can help you ease into the transition of a new lifestyle change.
Hair in the Shower
The average woman loses between 50 and 100 strands of hair per day, so it’s common to find a small clump of hair in the shower drain every now and then. However, if more hair is collecting in the shower than normal, it could be a sign of hair thinning or hair loss. Next time you bathe or comb your hair, take mental stock of the strands you collect.
Ponytails are easy, popular hairstyles for women with mid-length to long hair. It only takes a few seconds to put your hair in a ponytail, so you may not even notice the difference immediately. If your ponytail feels thinner than it did before, you may be losing your hair.
The Scalp is Visible
A visible scalp is often a sign of hair loss or thinning. Whether you part your hair to the side or in the middle, thinning hair will sometimes reveal itself at the part.
When hair falls out in clumps, it can leave bald patches at the hairline or along the part. Bald patches are often a sign of hair loss caused by emotional distress or alopecia areata.
