Most of us grow up thinking that shaving – whether it’s our mustache or our heads – can make hair thicker. Unfortunately, this isn’t true. If you want to make your hair thicker, you have two options. You can make hair appear thicker by using certain haircare products, or you can actually try to grow thicker, stronger hairs.
Most people have about 100,000 hairs on their heads, though this number can vary. Some people might have closer to 80,000 hairs, while others have more, at around 120,000 hairs. Each day, around 100 of these hairs are shed as part of the hair growth cycle.
Most men start to experience hair loss by their mid-30s, but there’s no set age when men start going bald. Men can actually start balding at any age. Some men start losing hair in high school, while others may not experience hair loss until their senior years.
When people consider their hair’s health, they often only think about how dry, frizzy, or unkempt their hair is. Hair is more than the strands you see, though. Each of your hairs grows from a hair follicle, buried in your scalp and invisible to the naked eye.
