The average person has more than 100,000 hair follicles in the head alone, each capable of producing at least twenty hair stands in a lifetime. Hair growth is affected by the hormonal system, in particular the androgenic (male) hormones, which include testosterone and a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Normally a person loses about 100 hairs each day, which are replaced within days. As we age, our hormone levels fluctuate and begin to decline, which reduces the stimulus to the hair follicles and results in hair loss.
