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.
Blonde hair is one of the most sought after hair colors, mostly because of how blondes are depicted in the media – after all, blondes are supposed to have more fun. However, if you have blonde hair, you are more susceptible to certain conditions because of the lack of melanin. This deficiency can unfortunately lead to hair loss.
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. Though no one is quite sure why, most blame either genetics or the way this hair color interacts with the sun. If you were born a natural brunette, then, you may be more prone to hair loss than other hair colors. (Note: This only includes natural hair color – not hair that is dyed.)
