In short, if you're washing your hair less frequently than you usually would, and skipping styling / brushing sessions, it's likely that you're going to have a lot more accumulated hair to shed when you hit the shower.
Then, how often should I wash my hair if it's falling out?
Most experts recommend washing your hair 3 to 4 times per week. When you wash your hair daily, the natural oil from your scalp doesn't reach your ends, which dries out your hair, making it more brittle and reducing it's shine.
Also to know, why does a lot of my hair fall out when I wash it?
Daily washing is not the cause of hair loss. Phew. The process becomes more apparent because weak hair sheds faster when it's wet and stimulated by massaging of the scalp. It's also normal to lose strands while combing, especially when it's wet as the strands are weaker and more prone to damage.
Does hair fall out more when dirty?
TRUE: When your scalp produces too much grease and you don't get rid of it, you may find that more of your hair falls out. This is because sebum (oil) makes your hair 'dirty' and can obstruct the follicle.
Is losing 200 hairs a day normal?
Cleaning it is a pain, but it's nothing to panic about - shedding hair is actually perfectly normal. Every two or three months, the resting hairs shed, and new hairs grow in their place. So you could be losing between 150 and 200 hairs from your head per day.
