For women who are not yet into menopause, it can seem overwhelming and worrisome that they are experiencing hair loss. First, realize that most women will shed hair every day – just like men. You can expect to shed as much as 100 strands of hair throughout any given day. However, some women will experience a higher amount of hair loss. When this happens, it becomes necessary to start asking questions especially if you are younger than age 45 to 50. Why are you losing your hair prior to menopause?
