Maybe a random question but when you wash your hair or if you were to run your fingers through your hair and shake it over a sink would you lose a few, a handful, none? Is hair loss an issue for you or do you notice hair thinning as you age? My pony tail is smaller and there's more hair on the floor than ever before. Apparently we lose 100 hairs a day but that seems odd to me...

Post birth I was losing a lot every day for about a year. Handfuls. I was amazed I still had hair left!

I lose so much hair I am surprised I am not bald. A hairdresser washing my hair actually asked me if it was normal! So embarrassing.

I've just started the post-pregnancy shed. With DD I lost about 1/3 to 1/2 my hair. DS is 13 weeks and I'm now finding hairs everywhere! Sadly I also shed a couple of months after my miscarriages too, though not as extreme.

I swear I loose a wig worth every week, clogs the dyson up terribly, DH always asks if I have any hair on my head!

There is hair everywhere! Straight after having my babies, I lost handfuls, everyday. I'd say at least half my hair fell out in the space of a few weeks. My normal hair loss is a handful at every shower, and it covers my house, hair everywhere. I'd guess I lose at least 200 strands a day. At least. I have very thick hair though. Not sure if that makes a difference.

I loose about a brush full every morn, the only time I freaked out was when I had my hair braided in Thailand and took it out after a week and there was clumps of hair falling out. My hair has thinned recently but that's just the change in the weather as it is getting warmer, well that's my reasoning anyways lol
