Hair loss is a condition in which the hair falls at an abnormal rate eventually leading to partial or complete loss of hair.

The scalp has at an average 100,000 hairs. A healthy scalp sheds hair continously and new hair replaces them.However when the scalp is not able to produce new hair to replace the shed hair, baldness develops.

The medical term for hair loss is “alopecia“. The alternative names are Hair Fall, Baldness, Loss of hair.
