Losing too much hair in the shower?

On average Losing up to 100 hairs a day is normal.  Personally, I am not counting the strands I find throughout my day to day…  But I did start to think about possibilities of why there is way more hair coming out the 2-4 times a week I am actually BRUSHING MY HAIR!!!

If I brushed my hair daily I would see less lost by brushing every couple days.  Here are a few benefits to remember when you actually make time to brush your hair;

  • It helps in stimulating the blood flow to increase circulation of nutrients and oxygen.  This also will promote new healthy hair growth!
  • Keeps the pores of the hair and scalp open and also helps hair in retaining natural oils.
  • Adds shine and volume to your hair.
  • Reduces the amount of hair lost while cleansing.

If brushing your hair daily and before you jump in the shower isn’t comforting any improvements, here are a few other factors to consider for Reasons for hair loss:

  • Stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Lack Of Protein
  • Female Hormones (New or Changing BC)
  • Dramatic Weight loss
  • Vitamin B Deficient
  • Too much styling (Heat exposure, Ponytails/Tight Hair ties, or Tight Braiding)


I am a big fan of  B vitamins, weekly scalp massage and a healthy diet to keep my hair skin and nails strong.  Balancing a few of the items listed above could really help you in decreasing the amount of hair you are losing on a weekly basis.  If you’re still concerned, I cam across this Quiz from MarieClaire.com you can take to really get to the bottom of your concerns.

My final recommendations include, brushing your hair more frequently, stimulate circulation with a scalp massage or even include specialty shampoo systems, and balance a healthy lifestyle to maintain nutrients and low stress levels.  Let me know if you see any improvements, I would love to share your experience!
