Anatomy of Follicles - HAIR LOSS - Causes of Baldness

Before understanding HairFall, you must understand Follicle


A Follicular Unit ( Graft ) is a group of hairs. We have about 100,000 Follicular Units on our scalp.


There is Loss of about 40-50 Follicles every day. When we start losing more than that, it’s a symptom of Baldness.

Hair Cycle

Anatomy - Hair grows in groups of 1 to 4 hairs called follicles.

We are born with all the follicles we will ever have in the scalp ( approximately 100,000 ).

Follicles replenish themselves by going through three phases, the Anagen phase, Catagen phase and Telogen phase, known as the Hair Cycle .

Solutions for Hair Loss / Hair Thinning

Hair Loss

Most people normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day. This usually doesn't cause noticeable thinning of scalp hair because new follicle is growing in at the same time. Hairloss occurs when this cycle of growth and shedding is disrupted or when the follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue.

If follicles fall out at tremendous rate is called as Alopecia in Medical Terminology.

Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. Hereditary Hair Loss with age is the most common cause of baldness. Some people may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still others choose one of the treatments available to prevent further loss and to restore growth.
