How many hair fallen is considered shedding

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends,


I am suffering from hair thinning from past 5 years. I have not gone bald, but my left temple and crown has thinned a lot. I have started using Minoxidil 2% from past 6 weeks. I am using Mintop which is manufactured by Reddy's clinic in India.

I used to loose lot of hair when i comb after taking a bath, but less hair when i comb my dry hair. During 4th week in using minoxidil my hair fall increased but just little more then normal.

My question is is my shedding period complete?


Hair which fall out now are not thin but thick hair.

Will this thick hair which are falling will it grow back.


I hope not but if i have to select hair transplant surgeon in Bangalore/India whom should i select. Most preferably a surgeon from Bangalore would be good.

Following are the surgeon whom i have been researching on

1> Dr Sridhar Reddy pioner clinic Bangalore

2> Dr Venkatchalam Bangalore

Let me see what I can do to address some of your inquiries:


1. Most people consider a shed of 50-150 hairs a day normal. Amounts above this rough estimate may represent some sort of hair loss.


2. Minoxidil is associated with an initial "shedding phase," which can last up to 3-4 months. After this, shed native hair should grow back thicker and stronger than before.


3. In India, I recommend either Dr. Madhu or Dr. Radha.


I hope this helps!

Only minoxydil is not enough. Consider taking Finasteride 1mg everyday alongwith minox. If there is no improvement for 1 year then go for surgery.
