    Natural Hair Loss?

    Hello, is it normal for a woman to start losing small amounts of hair when she hits middle age?

    Hi Michaelc45,

    It is perfectly normal to lose hair, at any age of a woman's lifetime. Women can lose massive amounts of hair leaving a bald spot on the top of their head. The hair loss usually starts in their mid to late 30s. Ii know when I brush my hair, I see lots of hair in the brush. I haven't got any thinning/bald spot on my head though. So, yes every woman and man that has hair can quickly lose alot of hair. It is normal and natural.

    Thanks so much. It seems so sudden, but I won't worry.

    Yes, it is normal losing your hair when you are in younger age. As I know a lot of people don't shower and apply shampoo daily due to this reason.

    It can be normal, but it can also be a sign of thyroid issues...when was your last physical and blood work? I would suggest getting your GP to order blood work to check your thyroid just to be sure it isn't medical related.
