It’s important to note hair loss is normal. The NHS advises people lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day, often without noticing.
It adds: “Hair loss isn’t usually anything to be worried about, but occasionally it can be a sign of a medical condition.
“Some types of hair loss are permanent, like male and female pattern baldness. This type of hair loss usually runs in the family.”
Other types of hair loss may be temporary and can be caused by an illness, stress, cancer treatment and weight loss.
