Many people question whether their hair loss is temporary or permanent. Natural hair loss is completely normal, as humans lose an average of 100 hairs a day. This number varies person to person and some people may experience more extreme hair loss. If you are noticing you are losing more hair than usual, you may be experiencing temporary hair loss. Temporary hair loss can be caused by a variety of different life events:
Hair loss is usually noticed two to three months after a trauma and can last up to two to three months.
Knowing the difference between temporary or permanent hair loss can be difficult to tell. If there is a history of baldness in your family, heredity may be the cause. And in that case, the hair will not grow back.
If you are experiencing hair loss, it is best to seek a professional for an evaluation.
