Hair loss of few hair per day is normal

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us at Healthcaremagic
Hair loss of upto 100-150 hair per day is normal.
You are loosing few hair per day which is absolutely normal and it is not related to the use of hair wax.
You are treating your hair in a very fine way.
No need to worry.
You can continue your daily hair routine.
