Studies show that it's normal for a woman to lose up to 100 hairs a day on her comb, brush or sink—this is just the result of the usual hair growth cycle. Some will lose far more strands than that. While reasons vary—from the hormonal changes of menopause to stress, from the results of intense styling treatments to side effects from medication—it's estimated that about 30 million women in the United States are all too familiar with this hair dilemma.
