  • My hair is all one length, thich, super long and curly so it is almost always up. I have enough hair to donate 12" and still have about 18" left in back. I cut my hair to a short cut when I went into the military when I was 17 and haven't cut it since. I'm 42 now. I trim it about every six months and wash it only once or twice a week. I also don't brush it on the days I don't wash it. So in my estimation, I am losing the same amount of hair ( a normal occurence as hair grows approx. 1/2" month) using my method than a person who washes theirs everyday. When I do brush out my hair I do it over the carpet because it's easier to vacuum. And yes there are always gerbils in the shower. Although my grandma thinks I am way to old for long hair and it's time for the old lady cut with the blue rinse. Never gonna happen!

  • I wear mine in a bun or pony tail so I only notice it coming out when I brush it. But honestly I have just too much hair, it's curly, long and thick, sure but in reality it's just a lot of hair. I have cut it short and since it gets lighter it gets even curlier but when I straighten it it's more tamable. I think I am going to cut mine again, it's already grown back really fast.

  • I was told it happens because of a lack of protien.
