Doctor:The number of hair lost is what decides whether we need to be worried or not.

User:May I know as to how you will judge the hair fall rate?
Doctor:Counting is for an exact estimate. I think we can be able to guage and approximate number when you comb / take bath or as and when the hair shed down/
Doctor:If the rough / approximate hair fall is less than 100 it is clinically not significant. You need not worry.
