    Perhaps you can be more specific.
    Have you had any major changes in your life? Allergies (it's that time of year)? Did you change hair products or techniques? Start or stop taking a medication? Lose a lot of weight?

    Cute pup, by the way.

    Do your shed hairs have any root attached to them? If not, then they could be broken hairs, but this sounds pretty serious.

    People can shed excess hair as a result of a hormonal change, thyroid disease, endocrine diseases like polycystic ovarian syndrome, allergies of any kind (which you can develop at any age), and autoimmune diseases can cause hair loss. So can nutrient deficiencies like iron and zinc.

    When you experience a major change like this, it's worth getting it checked out by a doctor - especially if you cannot think of a reason for it. Sometimes people try to ignore hair loss as a sign of a problem, but don't ignore this one. Your body is telling you something.

    We can help you with how to style your hair, how to keep it healthy and looking good, but we cannot diagnose problems like this and I hope you will check this out as soon as you can.

    I'm sorry you are experiencing this problem, best wishes to you.
