I wanted to know if anyone has this problem. When I shampoo and condition my hair, little balls of rolled up hair shed. What does this mean? I know that we lose hair everyday but not like this. There are about 10 to 15 balls of little hair that comes out. Help!!

  • Is your hair getting thinner over time? If it's not, it's probably just normal hair shedding. We lose 50-100 hairs a day. That's 350-700 a week. If you're doing a weekly shampoo and conditioner, your loosened hairs may be mostly coming out during that, and that would be hundreds of hairs at once. Ask your hairdresser at your next appointment if the amount of hair that comes out seems normal to her. She'd certainly know.
