Men’s hair loss is a very common issue (affecting around 50% of men over the age of 50), but regardless of how common it is, it can be rather distressing to see your hair thin or fall out. The first thing to work out is whether you are losing more hair that is deemed typical. You may have noticed a little more hair than usual on the pillow, on your clothes, in the plughole after washing. However, it is usual to use between 50-100 hairs per day and there is usually more hair shedding in the autumn, but it fluctuates through the year.
