It is normal to lose around 100 hairs per day. However, please seek a specialist for full evaluation should you be losing more than that.
Seek a dermatologist, who is specially trained in hair loss. He/she will be able to give you a better understanding of your hair loss, how to manage it and the treatment choices available.

Act sooner to better your chances of keeping your hair, and possibly regrowing those you have lost.
