Hair Shedding
 
I noticed what seemed to be a lot of hair that shedded after I washed and detangled my hair in the shower.

So, does anyone know what's normal for hair shedding? How much does hair shed a day?

I could be making a big deal out of this being that I'm starting to wash my hair about once a week now, so it just seems like a lot. I know with curly hair, our hair doesn't necessarily fall out on it's own like straight or loose wavy hair, it gets locked up in there until it's detangled.

Nvm.. it's probably normal. lol I can't figure out how to delete this though.

I was wondering the same thing. I feel like ever since I stopped using sulfate shampoos I shed way more than I used to. I have no idea what is the normal amount, but mine adds up to alot because I shed during detangling, shampooing (non-sulfate), conditioning, and styling. It's too much!!

I notice I seem to lose less hair when I detangle with a spray bottle & comb outside of the shower. It's more comfortable & I'm less in a hurry because I'm ready to get out. Plus I can take breaks when I get impatient & I'm able to sit in front of a mirror. I rinse when I get in the shower though.

.. but then I realize you shed about 100 strands per day. So, what really seems to be a lot in the shower for me.. really isn't a lot. Being that I'm starting to only wash my hair about once a week now compared to when I would co-wash or shampoo wash (sulfate free) a few to a couple times a week.

I think maybe sometimes we make a big deal about hair shedding when in reality curly hair doesn't shed the same as straight. Ours get tangled in our hair. :-)

Yeah, I think it also may be because curly hair just looks thicker when it's in the shower drain 'coz it clumps into a ball. At least it does to me :-?

well if you shed 100-150 strands a day, and if your hairs longer, then itll look like its more, n if you dont de tangle every day, but every other day rather, then when you do de tangle, then its gonna look like a lot more, but i dont think you need to worry bout it :)
