Resolution season is upon us! “New year, new me” is a common mantra after a most uncommon year. Many of us are looking forward to growth opportunities in every area of our lives. While upgrading skin, hair, and nail health with the help of an online dermatologist is a pretty obvious use of our services, using telemedicine as a tool for intentional improvement is an innovative approach to a longstanding tradition.
If you're worried about how much hair you're losing, you're not alone. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it's normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. Now, keep in mind that may look different from person to person. For example, if you have longer or thicker hair, it may appear you're losing more than your roommate with shorter or thinner hair. However, if you feel like you're losing more hair than normal, you could be experiencing excessive shedding or hair loss – yes, there is a difference.
