Did you know that natural hair color can make certain individuals more prone to hair loss?
There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the risk of hair loss. Some factors are expected – such as medical conditions – while others are quite surprising. A human is, on average, born with 100,000 hair follicles across their entire scalp – though this can vary significantly based on a person’s natural hair color.
Take a look at the four most common types of hair color to see the variance in hair density based on natural color.
Blonde or Brown Hair: This group has the highest hair count, boasting a total of 140,000 hair follicles across the entire scalp.
Black hair: Averaging 108,000 pieces of hair, dark hair is the most common type of natural hair.
Red Hair: Typically known to have the lowest strand count with an estimated 90,000 hairs.
