Are you noticing large amounts of hair falling out in the shower? Are you worried about the amount of hair you are currently shedding? You’re not alone; most people are concerned about this. On the other hand, if you think that your hair isn’t getting any thinner, then there probably isn’t a problem.
If you have long hair, or are in the process of growing your hair out, then you have probably noticed that you’re shedding a significant amount of hair. Back when I had a buzz-cut I didn’t notice it at all, but now it seems like my hair ends up everywhere. On my bed, on the bathroom floor, and especially in the shower. Also you might want to consider getting one of these shower drain hair traps to prevent your shower drain from plugging up.
So why does it seem like my hair is falling out in large clumps when I’m in the shower? Most people shed around a hundred strands of hair per day. When you’re in the shower and your hair is wet, hair follicles become weaker, thus making them more prone to damage and falling out. Most of the hair that falls out in the shower has already been detached, and is just waiting to fall out. To prevent unnecessary hair loss, you should always be gentle when washing your hair and scalp. On another note, this is also why you should be gentle when drying and combing your hair. Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel, and avoid combing or brushing after a shower when your hair is wet. Also you might want to think about getting a wide tooth comb, it’s a lot easier and safer to use for your hair.
