If you are suffering from hair loss and are thinking about hair restoration options in San Jose, California, and environs, you are not alone. According to the American Hair Loss Association some 85% of men will have experienced significant thinning by the age of 50 and around a quarter of those affected will have begun to notice the first signs of hair loss before the age of 21.
It doesn’t just affect men, either. It is estimated that approximately 40% of sufferers are women, and by the age of 50 roughly half of all women will have some degree of hair thinning.
The average human head has between 100,000 and 150,000 hair follicles, and according to WebMD it is normal to shed about 100 hairs every day. These are replaced by the growth of new hairs, but as you get older your hair grows at a slower rate. This means that even if you are only losing the average amount of hairs each day it takes longer for the replacement hairs to grow which can add to the appearance of thin hair or bald spots.
