Why Does Hair Fall Out?
No, you’re not going crazy. Hair does fall out naturally. In fact, it goes through a natural growth cycle throughout our lives. At any given time, the majority of hair fibers are actively growing, while a small number of hair follicles have shed their hairs to take a short break, causing hair fall.
As we age, the number of hair follicles that go dormant increases, which can lead to noticeably thinner-looking hair. Studies show that for women, this process begins around age 40.
Hair damage also can contribute to hair fall. Extensively damaged hair can begin to break apart. You might notice this hair fall when you style your hair and see more hair in your brush or more flyaways on the crown of your head.
But don’t stress out (it might make things worse!)—we’ve been researching a variety ways to treat the many causes of hair fall. We have strengthening formulas to dramatically reduce breakage, cosmetic treatments to thicken existing hair strands, and full collections dedicated to making hair look 10 years younger.
