How Many Hairs Does a Mustache Shed Daily?- Tuesday, August 17, 2010


I have worked in food manufacturing quality control for many years.  Many standards in the industry are beginning to require covering of the mustache while working with food. I was wondering, on average, how many hairs fall from a mustache each day?


This is an interesting question. There doesn’t appear to be any documented statistics regarding shedding of facial hair.  However, Dr. Bill Rassman, a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians estimates that 10% of facial hair should be in a resting or telogen phase at any given time but can offer no insight regarding the number hairs lost on a daily basis.
