Normal Daily hair loss, how many hair strands?
How many hair strands lost per day is acceptable? As in for male baldness, what is considered acceptable daily hair loss for a healthy scalp?
Tried to search for a decent answer but cant get a good one. Thanks.

Up to 100 hair strands daily is fine, sometimes even 150 hair strands lost daily is fine (for men).

isnt there like a test to see if you are shedding too much hair or losing it through MPB?
Brush the hair forward with a comb on the front hairline for 10 seconds then count how many hair strands are removed and stuck on the comb. Something like that. More than 10 hair strands is excessive hair loss.

I remember reading that normal shedding of hair with short hair should not be visible and that if it is visible (as in you see it everywhere in the pillow, shower, comb) it means youre going bald. Not sure how reliable this belief is though.

Your best taking and keeping images of your scalp & following any progression of the baldness (if theres any). I have seen many male clients who over the course of two to five years lost much of the hair on the top and when they realized of their baldness it was too late as mpb is best treated asap.
