Hair in the drain?

Many people ask me this question and thanks "The Today Show" for reminding me to blog about it this morning!

What is the normal amount of hair to lose when shampooing or brushing your hair?

The average person loses about 150 strands of hair a day.

If you think you're losing more, there may be something internal happening. The biggest culprits are medication, recent surgery or hormonal changes. I always tell my new moms who are experiencing hair loss to keep taking those prenatals! The surge of vitamins while pregnant gives you amazing thick hair but the sudden stop after the baby is born can trigger the hair loss. Of course, most new moms experience hair loss even with the vitamins but at least you can rule it out.
