I’ve heard it’s normal to lose over 100 hairs throughout the day, but every time I wash my hair and towel dry it’s seems I’m losing a ton of hair. I’ll shampoo and each time I run my hands through my soapy hair and look at them there’ll be close to or over 10 hairs and appears like it adds up to almost 100. No matter how many times I run my hands through my hair I’ll see a bunch of hairs. Then, if I towel dry with a white towel I’ll see even more hairs. Is it normal to lose this much hair just in the shower? I shower every day but wash my hair every two to three days.
The average hair loss per day for an average Caucasian male is 100,000 hairs, but I doubt that you would lose them all in the shower unless you are losing more than 100 hairs per day which would occur in a hair loss situation. When you rub hair that is miniaturizing, these hair easily come out with your fingers, your towel and almost anything you do to rough up your hair.
