Hair loss is a very common and most men and women will experience it at one stage throughout their life. Hair loss can happen for a number of different reasons, and in some cases, it’s completely normal and is nothing to worry about.

It is normal to lose hair every day, however, in some cases, hair loss can be more severe and you could need to consider hair restoration treatments. We’re telling you what signs you need to look out for if you think your hair might be excessively thinning.

Your hair comes away in clumps

As mentioned above, we’re all prone to losing hair and naturally you’ll notice this when you brush your hair or when you’re washing your hair. For some, you might notice you’re losing more than your normal level of daily hair, if you run your fingers through your hair and it comes away with clumps of hair, or you find clumps of hair when washing your hair, it could mean your hair is thinning.

Does your hair seem lighter?

For those with thicker hair, you’ll know that you can feel the weight of your hair when you’re styling it. One give away for thinning hair is how you might notice the weight of your hair changing, it might seem lighter than normal – this could be due to your hair thinning.

Styling problems
