When I had really long hair Cali, more did fall out. That was nipped in the bud by trimming. I hate straggly hair so that worked for me. Some people don't like the trimmed look. Switching shampoos helped me too. I forget what I was using, it was something quite decent but it wasn't agreeing with my scalp. It's that whole hydroxysomething effect. I forget the name. Someone will remember it.
