Everyone sheds hair every day. But when you have a family history of male pattern baldness or have recently had a hair transplant, seeing any hair fall out of your scalp can be a bit alarming. There are some ways to tell if what you’re dealing with is just normal, everyday shedding or if it’s a more serious issue that a hair restoration surgeon should look at.
