Hair loss – a common problem

Hair is a sensitive and complex structure. Losing hair is a physiological process, present in life of every person. Each day we lose hair and each day new hair starts to grow on our skin and scalp. We speak of hair loss in case of losing too much hair (usually more than 100 per day).
