Are certain hair colors more likely to fall out?
Though hair loss can be attributed to many different causes, sometimes there are people who are more unlucky than others. Recent studies have shown that besides the typical health reasons like genetics, auto-immune disorders, and hormone imbalances, the color of your hair may have an impact on how fast you lose it.
People with lighter hair have more individual strands of hair than their brunette or auburn-haired friends. Blondes have about 120,000-147,000 individual strands of hair on their head, while brunettes have only 100,000-120,000. People with dark hair of certain ethnicities, such as African or Mediterranean, have even less hair, with on average only 60,000 strands. This means that even though blondes may lose more hair, it can simply be because they have more hair to lose. If you are a blonde losing more than 50-75 strands per day, however, you should consult a doctor about your hair loss.
In general, brunettes tend to lose the most hair in proportion to the amount of strands have on their head, regardless of race, sex, or other characteristics. This is because brown hair tends to be thicker and coarser than blond hair. When individual strands of brown hair fall out, they leave a larger empty space behind. This means that when many brown hairs fall out at once, the bald patches are much more noticeable. This is why more than half of women with visible hair loss in the United States are brunettes.
