What’s happening to MY hair?

Each night before I go to sleep, I’ll make sure the room floor is clean and if there are hair strands on it I’ll vacuum it away. BUT every morning when I wake up, I’ll definitely see THIS!

Clumps of hair on the floor! The only time I experienced such drastic hair loss was shortly after giving birth to Ethan. I shed hair like dogs shed fur then. NOW, it’s happening again! Darling said I still have hair like a lion’s mane though :(

Even when I shower and wash my hair, the amount of hair drop is alarming. Should I consult anyone? I don’t have bald spots on my head or anything and I’m feeling fine. Just that seeing the amount of hair like that on the floor each day is troubling me. Question for ladies with long hair, “Is this normal?”

P/S: I should just dim the bathroom lighting so that I won’t see so much hair next time I shower :(

    100 strands of hair drop per day is normal.. am i right? anyone? u should see mine, u faint!

  • //

    I read somewhere that shedding 100 strands of hair per day is normal. I don't know if this is true.People who have shorter hair styles tend to shed less hair. Maybe it has got to do with the length of hair. Longer hair causes more stress to the roots?Lack of sleep could be one of the reasons too.

    I was like this months back, really can not tahan to see those fallen hair on the floor. I try to change shampoo.. Didn't invest in any pricey one lah, I use sun silk hair fall solution, it works!

    Merryn,100 strand of hair drop is normal. Mine more worst after my pregnancy. I love keeping long hair. But now, i keep it short easy to manage and dun have to spend more time in the bathroom too..

  • //

    Me too, especially when I have long hair. Get advise from friends as to which shampoo suitable, tonic etc.Better take precaution, hair on my front head is thinning now :(

  • //

    Dunno…but my missus hair also all over, clogs the bath tub and the sink. And she'll say it's not hers. Who else has long hair in the house? Tsk! Tsk! LOL!!!!

  • //

    why not trim the hair much shorter then go treatment. keep long hair from there again. cut cut cut!

  • //

    Mine dropped too. I think this is normal. I used to have long hair and i find the hair drop more.

  • //

    hai meryn,sihatkah?memang itu masalah rambut panjang..saya lagi teruk sampaikan tercari-cari penawarnya..kalau berjumpa sudi2lah berkongsi yer..

  • //

    Long hair tend to drop more, therefore I cut short my hair. Last 2 weeks went to saloon and the hairdresser said my hair become thin, new hair is growing on top but quite slow? Hmm I step back now for all those perming, straightening or colouring.

  • //

    My hair too, can be spotted everywhere in the house. ;) I have very long hair and was thinking of snipping it but that also means the end to hair bunning which I like so much.

  • //

    cut to short and easy to maintain.but i think your hair or etc got problems… that why you drop hair….

  • //

    My hair also drop alot and exactly like what your HUbs said..still look like a lion's mane.LOL. I think it's normal.

  • //

    Oh no!!! Are we on the subject of hair again?! Hahahaha!!!!

  • //

    I think it's not normal to lose so much hair everyday. I mean, if you only noticed this recently, something must be wrong. Better check with a doctor or go to 101 Hair Care Centre. Just don't go Yun Nam – heard that they con their customers.

    Hmmm…me having short hair. But i also have this drastic fall. i also wondering if it's normal.
