hair loss

How much hair falls out of your head when you wash it?

I was discussing this with some people recently and was interested to learn that what I perceived to be a normal amount was considered excessive by others.


This is what I typically gather during my every-other-day hair wash. (After giving birth, the hair loss was 3 or 4 times this amount and seemed to go on forever.)

My younger daughter sheds hair at an alarming rate. I’m constantly picking her hair from her clothes, and when I braid it, I usually collect a whole bouquet of baby-fine blonde hairs that I feed directly to the vacuum nozzle so they won’t waft about the house, haunting me at every turn. On the other hand, my older daughter’s hair sticks firmly to her head.

So, after giving the issue almost zero thought, I’ve come to the brilliant conclusion that some people shed hair and others don’t. (Give me a medal, please.) Which are you?

This same time, years previous: rich, would you come?, Italian cream cake, stats and notes, 2008, and deprivation.
