It is normal to lose 75-100 individual hairs daily. With male pattern baldness, new hair growth is diminishing in taking the place of hairs that are shed. Hair is constantly growing in cycles. These cycles are as follows: ANAGEN - This is the growth cycle in which cells divide and elevate to the upper portion of the hair bulb, as dead cells. CATAGEN- During the catagen stage the hair is separated from it's nutritional source and hair growth stops. TELOGEN- During this cycle (which ranges in time from one to four months) the hair either falls out or is forced out by new growth.
