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?
The_MoUsY_spell_checker answered Thursday June 29 2006, 2:00 am: 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.)

just_ask_me answered Wednesday June 28 2006, 11:26 pm: 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. [ just_ask_me's advice column | Ask just_ask_me A Question ]
