Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Loss of up to 100 hairs per day is normal. If you lose more than 100 hairs, consult your Dermatologist and discuss about Diagnosis and treatment options.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
