I have lots of hair, and seems to lose lots throughout the day. I never used to look at the brush when I brushed my hair, but lately I have been, and the other day there was 20 strands in the brush (yes, i counted because it looked like a crazy amount of hair when it was all clumped together- so i had to count each strand to have some peace of mind ). I put the hair in a plastic bag and went to the doctor, he said that 20 strands in the brush for someone with alot of hair wasn't excessive and because I present with a full head of hair he says I'm being crazy. And throughout the day I'm not losing handfuls of hair but strands fall out here and there, it annoys me so much. Theres hair all over my floors. Does anyone else experience this? I also have a habit of touching my hair alot, and this is how a strand or two will end up in my hand. I tie it up all the time now to stop myself from touching it, and when i take my hair out, i pull out more strands with the elastic. I sleep with my hair loose and theres not a hair on the pillow in the morning because i dont play with my hair in my sleep; so the doctor was like 'if your hair was coming out super easily on its own, you'd wake up with strands all over your pillow.
The doctors like 'shedding is a way of life, if you are getting anxious about it, shave it all off'. I'm like 'thanks doc. I suppose he's got a point though. So far I haven't exceeded the so called normal hair loss of 100 strands per day, but does anyone lose a lot of hair during the day?
