Hair Shedding

On average, a healthy person should expect to shed up to 100 hairs every day - this is perfectly normal. At the end of the hair growth cycle, the hair will naturally shed to make room for new hair growth. You may see hairs in your comb after brusing or in the shower tray after washing your locks - chances are this hair loss in just part of your everyday shedding. 

Hair loss is the result of excessive shedding. This is when more hair that the usual amount is shed. If you are concerned and noticing more hair than usual coming out when your brush, wash or style your hair, we recommend that you contact your local GP for advice.

What Is Hair Breakage?

Hair breakage is another normal part of the hair's lifecycle and it is when the hair breaks somewhere on the hair strand. Breakage and split ends happen due to our day-to-day activities such as effects from the environment, touching, sleeping and styling the hair.

The stylists at our Hitchin salon recommend regular hair cuts every 6-8 weeks to help keep split ends at bay and hair looking happy & healthy. 

Protect your Hair From Chlorine

Chlorine is one of the main culprits when it comes to hair damage as are the sun’s rays, sea salt and humidity, so consider investing in some top quality hair care products to keep your hair looking healthy. The sun’s rays and pool chlorine can make hair dry, brittle and prone to breakage, while also affecting the vibrancy and shade of coloured hair, while long humid evenings can turn a beautiful head of curls or greying hair into a frizzy mess.
