Quick Hair Test
What condition is one’s hair in? In other words, a simple hair test can determine if one has a health problem associated with hair loss or not. This simple hair test can be performed as follows:
Start with a small area of clean, dry hair, and run one’s fingers through it, tugging gently once one gets to the ends of the hair strands. If more than two or three hairs are left in one’s hand after each tug, one may be experiencing telogen or anagen effluvium. No more than 10 hairs per 100 strands being tugged should be coming out. It has been always recommended to see a doctor to determine the cause. However, it’s a personal choice whether to determine if the cause might be related to diet, hair care products, medications, hereditary, or even stress.
