I keep hearing about how hair naturally sheds up to 100 hairs per day, yet I read threads almost everyday with people panicking if they lose more than 20 strands of hair. Whats up with that erplexed? Since I joined LHCF I've learned so much about my hair and I'm grateful. However, I've also become real anal where my hair is concerned. Satin caps and pillows, co-washing, oils,lotions and potions, no-mo touchy, "protective styles" etc. Do I need to start counting how many hairs I lose per day too? I read that when your hair gets longer it appears that you're losing more hair, but you're really not. Is it possible to comb your hair without losing ONE strand? Dont seasonal changes affect shedding also? How do I know if the hair I'm shedding is my normal 50-100 or if I have something to be concerned about? Sorry about rambling...I'm trying to KISS for '08, but I dont want to ignore something I need to take notice of. I also dont want to over-react and add shedding to my already stress-filled day. Comments?
