Question Posted Wednesday June 28 2006, 5:01 pm

Everytime I take a shower, I end up losing a lot of hair for some reason. Like when I'm washing my hair and I run my fingers through it, I get a lot of hair falling out. Even when I brush my hair after the shower I still lose a lot. And I use a Garneir conditioner and it makes my hair soft and so its not like its tangly and I'm pulling hair out... it just comes out when I brush it... why does it do that?

I've had that before,
its because most likely your hair is pretty dry?
It doesnt have to look dry, but if you blowdry it or straighten or curl it.. that takes the moisture out ofit, and if you do it often if causes you rhair to do that.
Try aloe vera hair gel, it restores your hairs moisture in it.

It is normal for some hair to fall out each day. This is especially true if your hair is really long, because each hair has a limited lifetime, and long hair tends to be more fragile.

To minimise hair loss, you should:
-Use conditioner so that your hair doesn't get tangled.
-Don't brush your hair unnecessarily. In other words, only brush your hair to style it, don't brush to "massage your scalp".
-If you tie your hair up, use coated elastics (preferably the ones without a metal part), and don't tie too tightly.
-Make sure you eat well. A deficiency in vitamins or minerals can cause hair loss. (This does not mean that you should take vitamin pills. Just make sure you have a balanced diet.)

If you think you're losing more hair than you should (for example, if your hair is getting noticably thinner), go see a doctor just in case.

Dont worry at all! Its natural for all girls, when they are in the shower, intensionaly alot of hair tends to fall out. Here are some reasons...

1) Your ponytail might have been to tight/ any other hair styles.
2)your hair is breaking. [split ends.etc]

Next time, make sure you dont pull on ur ponytail hard. Let ur head breathe.

But it is natural. You have nothing to worry about.

that happens to me too! my grandma is sharing the shower with me and she's freaking out about it saying that i need a more expensive shampoo. i use pantene prov. i really dont think there's anything wrong with it because we're supposed to lose some hair everyday. <3

Don't worry about this at all. You're actually supposed to lose hair every day. When I shampoo & condition, it does the same thing when I wash it out & even when I brush it. There's no reason to think somethings wrong! Make sure you get atleast a wash & trim at a hair cuttery every few months or so.
