Hair loss may be abnormal if you are losing more than 100 hairs a day. This may result in a general thinning of hair or in a patchy loss of hair over the scalp and other hair bearing areas such as the beard or eyebrows.
Treatment for hair loss depends on the type and severity. Your doctor will take a detailed history and perform a thorough examination. He or she may also conduct certain investigations such as blood tests, hair microscopy and even perform a scalp biopsy.
