How much daily hair loss is normal? What is not normal?
I heard people say that it's normal to loose 100 strands of hair a day. But that's impossible! If I was to loose that much hair every day, I would be bald in a week! I am 30 years old, but I feel like I have less hair now than a couple of years ago. I remember 5 years ago I had long hair, above my waist line, and it looked fine. Right now if I had hair that long, it would look very very thin and nasty.
My situation is bad because I have fine hair. Plus, I don't have much of it. I lose at least 20 strands in the shower. I'm afraid to brush my hair frequently now because everytime I run my fingers or brush through my hair, I lose a few strands. The strands don't break off, but they fall off at the root.
Is this normal? I am very concerned that my hair will get thinner and thinner.
