The thing is that it's not at all noticeable because I have a LOT of hair. It's just that if I run my hands though it during the day, several hairs at a time will come out (I could probably remove thirty at a time if I just did this 2 or 3 times a day). And when I wash my hair far far more come out in my hands - hard to count of course but I'd say roughly 20 come out with every time I run my hands through it during a wash, which mounts up to quite a lot obviously if you count 2 shampoos, conditioning and several rinses. Oh, and then more still come out when I run 2 separate products through it...
This is a reasonably recent thing, probably only the last 2 or 3 years, though my hair was shorter before so I may just not have noticed it so much I suppose.
Are there thyroid causes? Hormonal? Or do I just have too much hair??? I'm having PCOS tests in a month or so, perhaps I should mention in to doc then, if any chance it's hormone related? Forgive my ignorance if it couldn't possibly be!!
I do this yearly..........tis like I shed lots of hair when it is warmer, like an animal actually.
hormones make me lose hair too.......every single time I hit 9mths post baby, I lost loads of hair. luckily I too have thick hair so it is never noticable except to me (and the amount in the bath plug!)
