This sounds simple and but I’m really quite curious. What would you consider rapid and abnormal hairloss for someone in their twenties? One month, two months, half a year, a year? I’ve noticed an extreme amount of thinning over a month period and then none for the past 5 months ( what I would consider normal hair loss, very similar to before the extreme thinning)? Help!
I’m not sure I follow your question. Are you suggesting that hair loss occurs for a month or two and then stops… and cycles that way? That’s not how it works. Normal hair loss reflects hair cycling, which can account for 100-150 hairs falling out per day. There are no general rules about what is considered extreme, but if you are concerned then take charge and either see a doctor or check out your own hair for miniaturization (see Mapping Your Own Scalp).
