I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this thread...
BUT..... How much hair do you all lose a day.. I know this may sound like a 'weird' question but as my hair is getting longer (its half way down my back) I seem to be losing quite a bit of hair.. I cant see any bald patches PHEW.. But its beginning to worry me..
They say its normal to shed between 50-100 hairs a day and I dont lose more than or close to 100.. But looking at my brush with hair in it is scaring me...
I am 24 year of age.. and would like to keep my hair for many more years to come.. Has anyone else encountered this?? It would put my mind at ease knowing that a few of you shed a bit of hair...

when my hair gets really long I always feel like it's falling out like crazy...I figured out it's just cuz the the hair is so much longer, it LOOKS like you're losing more hair than you are. A single hair on your brush can get wound around and around, so it only takes a few to looks like a big nasty hairball.

I lose a ton of hair everyday. I always have (especially when it's longer). I think it's completely normal. If you feel like it's really bad (which it doesn't sound like it is), maybe make a doctors appointment just to put your mind at ease. But don't worry, if you saw my brush (and my white tile bathroom floor), you'd be scared!

I Know EXACTLY what you mean.. My husband sweeps the floor and he walks around saying "Hair, Hair and more hair... and more hair..."

My hair is LONG! Half way down my back as well. I lose a TON every morning, and shed throughout the day too. In the shower is the worst. . .use to drive Hubby crazy because of the clogs. But we have since bought a "hair catcher" thing that goes over the drain, so it is okay now. It catches all my lose hair now! :)

It is normal to loose around 35-50 hairs a day. Of course as we get older, our bodies change and your body may be changing the way that your hair grows and falls out. The normal hair has a life span of 3-5 years. Becaquse your hair is very long, your hair probably has a long life span(closer to 5 years). Everyday when you loose those 35-50 hairs, it's simple because their life is over and it's time for them to fall out and for a new hair to grow in it's place. You have no need to worry. As long as the density of your hair (thickness) is staying the same then there are no problems because that tells you that new hairs are constantly growning in the old ones place. If you feel that your hair is getting thinner, then make an appt. with your doctor because it may be medically related.

I used to "shed" really bad. Until I got about 4 inches cut off my hair, not it isn't quite as bad. . .but I do still lose a lot of hair each day!!!
I don't mind losing the gray ones, but I really think the brown ones should stick around. hehe

OMG Girls im SO glad I found this thread... I am going through exactly the same thing at the moment.. I am trying to grow my hair for my 'wedding hair' and I have been loosing LOADS of it,, everytime I brush, wash it, move the wrong way,, another load falls out. I too was a bit worried about bald patches,, but I have none.
I have quite thin hair, and I think as the hair gets longer, it gets heavier, and tends to break off. That was my theaory.....
Im glad im not the only one going through this and am not abnormal for loosing so much hair PHEW.... Thanks
