How many hairs are there on the human head?

Answer:

You are born with about 100,000 scalp hair follicles to start with, but it varies with natural hair color. Blondes have an average of 150,000 hairs, the average redhead has 90,000. Those with black or brown hair average 110,000 to 100,000 hairs.

*There are about 5 million hair follicles on the adult human body and men have a few hundred thousand more than women. These follicles are distributed fairly evenly throughout the body, with the exception of our hairless palms and soles.*

Shedding, hair thinning, decreased volume of hair and loss of scalp coverage are commons signs of hair loss, which can be treated.
