How To Reduce Hair Shedding: The Complete Guide

How To Reduce Hair Shedding

Your complete guide to keeping your hair out of your brush. 

If you’re noticing more hair in your shower drain and your brush than ever before, you’ve come to the right place. While a certain amount of hair shedding is considered normal (about 100 strands a day), sometimes it can feel like every time you wash or style your hair, you’re left with a clump of hair about the size of a golf ball in your palm. Hair shedding can be caused by many things, including stress, major lifestyle changes, and weakened strands. Once you’ve determined the cause of your hair shedding, there are typically a few tweaks you can make to your hair care routine to put an end to your fallen strands. 

Hair shedding caused by stress or lifestyle changes (maybe you just had a baby) is usually temporary and often resolves on its own. However, if your hair seems to be shedding at an alarming rate, it’s best to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or trichologist to help figure out the best course of action. If your strands are breaking off at the mid-lengths and ends, you’re likely dealing with weakened strands. Weakened strands can be caused by chemical services, heat styling, and poor styling habits. Lucky for you, a hair care lineup with professional hair care products and some styling tips is all you need to turn your hair around. Ready to make hair shedding a thing of the past?
