I have been to my GP about the amount of hair I loose a day. Seem excessive but he said don't worry.
I brush my hair morning and night and I reckon I get a small handful each time I brush it as well as a handful when I wash it every 2nd-3rd day.
Surely that amount of hair loss is excessive. I used to have really long hair and ever since I cut it to shoulder length, it seems worse!

Are you breastfeeding? I am breastfeeding my 6 month DS and I'm losing a lot of hair too but I'm not worried and know that I won't go bald... it's just a side effect unfortunately, it happens to most mums that bf.

Nope, I stopped BF DD 12 months ago, my hair was wonderful and thick when pregnant with her, then it thinned out and I decided to cut it off short because she kept grabbing it and ripping it out

I have it too. My DD is 4 months and my hair is falling out everywhere! I was told it was normal and to make sure I kept taking my vitamins whilst breastfeeding. Will it keep falling out as long as I'm BF? I swear I'm going to go bald soon

there are dermatologists who specialise in hair loss... i went to one becaue BF'ingnearly sent me bald!!! It was horrible. They told me it was just hormonal etc.
He said it mainly came out from the longest bit of pony and around the front (unfortunately)
if you're worried i'd see someone.

I don't know how it can be hormonal, I'm not BF, haven't done for 12 months. Cycles are 30 days and regular, no changes there.
My GP thinks I'm being a worry wart and won't help.

Ever since I had bub 20 months ago I lose a lot of hair as well. Not sure why. Been losing more hair than usual over the last few months as well - I'm glad I've gone from having hair past my hips to a short bob because seriously, every time I shower or brush my hair I *always* have to clean up all the hair everywhere.

Before I was pregnant with DS I lost at least as much as you are. I would block the shower drain when I would wash my hair. It would literally be everywhere. We're still picking hairballs off our clothes from when I'd put them in the dryer .
Stopped when I got pregnant though which is apparently normal and supposedly I'm meant to start losing it again soon, it's got me scared cos it's stopped for so long.

To prevent hair loss manage stress with regular workout and take nutritious diet. Avoid rubbing hair with towel to dry them and don't touch or pull hair. Take adequate amount of proteins through daily meals.
