  • for a while after my 3rd i had clumps of hair coming out when i washed it and then after when i brushed it. my hair is already thin and i feared baldness too. but now i think the hormones have balanced and i eat better so i still lose hair but not nearly as much. i was also shedding all over the place before, not as much now. sometimes if you change your diet and eat healthier, or take a daily multi-vitamin, it helps with hair growth. dont worry about going bald, although it seems you lose a lot of hair, even more grows back quickly :)

  • We lose/shed over 100 follicles a day. I brush my hair really well before I shampoo but I still lose some thru the day and they end up in my shirt/underwear...

  • Not really actually. After I had my first baby I had a lot fall out, but not so much anymore.

  • Sometimes that happens with me, but I have to remind myself the average loses at least 100 hairs a day.

  • We shed lots of hairs in a day so I think when we are scrubbing our head they just all come out with one big bang and then the drain is full

  • I comb my conditioner thru in the shower so that's when I get the most hair loss. After, I use a wide tooth pick to go thru my hair & get a little more. I think we all "shed" a little! -lol :) (If it's excessive, you may want to have your thyroid checked)
