Question Hair question.

Am I the only one who loses a lot of hair in the shower? It doesn't come out in clumps, more like one or two strands at a time but apparently this is common. I just want to make sure I'm not the only one this happens to. I have A LOT of thick hair so I'm sure the amount I lose is nothing.

I read before that men and women lose an averge of 100 strands of hair a day, but it grows back. That seems a little hard to believe. I seem to shed hair more in the spring and summer. I always wear a headband or put my hair in a ponytail when I cook.

For some reason there's never any hair in the drain after I shower. If I didn't know any better, I'd think my hair was super glued to my head.

No, I lose a ton once I run my hands through my hair when I put conditioner in and yet my hair is still wicked thick. It's normal, we all shed our hair.

Women going almost bald runs in a family that I know very well. You can see their scalp on top, and the sides. I feel bad when I see a woman who has lost or is losing her hair. You see a lot of older women wearing wigs as many women's hair tends to thin as they age. Alopecia (going bald) is fairly common in women. I'd hate it to happen to me, but I know it can. My mother's hair was thinning the last few years of her life. It could have been all the medicine she was taking, as that's often a side effect.

Brad, you'll NEVER go bald. You have a great head of hair. Does your Dad have all his hair, although they say we get our hair genes from our Mom, or something like that.

I lose a lot of hair while I am washing my hair. I have clogged the drain in my bathtub, more than once; but, my hair is not thinning. Actually, my hair is thicker than ever!!!

And that is one of the reasons why I buzz my head now. I shed like a mother****er when my hair is longer. It's really kind of ridiculous. One of my friends, who has CRAZY DENSE hair and doesn't seem to lose any hair, once said to me "Holy **** woman, you SHED like crazy!" ... "Yeahhhhh, I know. Sorry..." Heh.

Thanks!!!! Yeah my dad is in his fifties now, and he still has a thick full head of hair. My mom on the otherhand loses her hair like crazy, but fortunately I seemed to get my hair gene from my dad. I don't want to jinx myself though, so I'm definitely not going to gloat about it.

Hey why not, lol. That's what a lot of balding men do when they're losing their hair. A bald head looks better than the Trump combover.
