Though some people experience more hair loss due to various causes, sometimes some people are more unlucky than others. Recent studies show your hair color might affect how fast you lose hair.
Blonde hair is one of the most sought-after hair colors, primarily because people seek blonde hair; the media portray blondes as having 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 light hair have more strands than those with dark hair. Blondes have about 120,000-147,000 individual hair strands 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. See a doctor if you are losing 50-75 strands per day as a blonde.
Brunettes often lose the most hair, regardless of race or sex. Though no one is quite sure why, most blame genetics or how this hair color interacts with the sun. You may be more prone to hair loss if born a natural brunette than other hair colors. (Note: This only includes natural hair color – not hair that is dyed.)
