My hair is slightly longer then usual just past shoulders and seems to get awfully knotty especially in the shower where it starts to fall out and not nesscessarily in loose strands or clumps just a few strands together from the root. When I dry or brush it hair comes out. I have extremely thick hair btw and do have it coloured and highlighted. I've tried not to wash as often or straighten and usually tie it back. I am wondering if it is just in bad condition or linked to pre menopause or thyroid problems non of which I've been tested for as feel the doctor will dismiss it and just say I am old. I am 36 years old just turned.
