Seeing hair in the shower drain is pretty normal, but that doesn't make it any less discouraging. If you long for a more magnificent mane, there are various hacks to make your hair grow back thicker that you can easily try.
The average woman loses between 50 and 100 strands a day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). What's more, when you go through a stressful life event, like giving birth, recovering from an illness or caring for loved one who is sick, you're more likely to have telogen effluvium, or excessivehair shedding, explained the AAD.
Your hair is going to go through different cycles, including a growth phase (anagen), a transitional phase (catagen), and a resting and shedding phase (telogen). At any given time, a random number of hairs will be in one of three stages, according to WebMd. Interestingly, each phase has a wildly different duration. The growth phase can last one to three years, while the transitional catagen phase lasts about three weeks and the shedding phase lasts about three months, explained La Roche Posay.
If you're looking for ways to make your hair grow back stronger during the growth phase, here are some great hair hacks to make your locks that much more luxurious.
