    Everyone's hair routine is different, so based upon how much manipulation you perform on your hair on a daily basis, including on ones wash day, this can affect exactly how many shedded hairs you will see come from your head. It is normal for human beings to shed anywhere from 50-100 hairs a day. However, most people don't actually count the amount of shedded hairs that come from their head. The hair that is on our head is meant to be naturally shedded, and then be replaced with new strands. Of course one does not shed all of the hairs on top of their head at same time. As, the strands of hair on our head do go through a growth, as well as a resting phase.

    Unfortunately, i can't tell exactly how many strands is in the ball of hair shown, however, from now on, maybe it would be best for you to start taking count of how many shedded hairs you experience on a daily basis. So, that way, you will know if your experiencing either less than 50, between 50-100, or over 100 shedded hairs a day.

    I only majorly manipulate my hair on my hair wash days, and that is when i experience seeing the highest amount of shedded hairs, however, that is to be expected, due to my engaging in a lot of manipulation on my hair during such times. In between hairwashings, i style my hair with my fingers only, so i experience seeing less than 50 shedded hairs a day, as a result of such, However, if i was using, a comb or brush on my hair daily, of course the number of shedded hairs that i would see would be higher.

    Now, when it comes to your experiencing hair breakage, i would recommend booking an appointment with a hair stylist, so that they can do a trim or cut (based upon how how badly your breakage is) so that way, you can then start off with a clean slate again with your hair.

    And, as long as your hair follicles are in a healthy state, and are alive and aren't dead, then you will continue to experience hair growth. However, when ones hair follicle is dead, no more hair growth will come from that follicle. If one experiences breakage to their hair, then this does work against length retention. Because, if one has recurring length retention issues, then chages in ones regimen will ultimately need to be made, in order to best eliminate such from continuing to happen.

    first determine if it's shedding or breakage by looking at the roots for bulbs. I realized a long time ago my hair is very dense and I get more shedding than some others. It's my normal. It's good for me to manipulate more than just wash days because the shed hair will tangle in my hair very badly if not removed soon enough and I have to cut out knots. I hear tea rinses are good if your shedding gets above your normal.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    I wouldn't worry about it. Kind of hard to screw up a tea rinse. You brew it. Cool a little. You put it in a applicator bottle and pour over your hair. I heard you should not use black tea though. I did one recently using a tea I made from Hibiscus flowers. Very nice.

    Is your hair getting noticeable thinner? Do you have any other symptoms? If so go to the doctor.

    If your answer is "No" to both questions don't then it's how you handle your hair.

    Well I tried the tea rinse utter disaster lol I'm really not good with things like that but I'll try anything twice so I'll try again next week. And no there's nothing medically wrong with me just breakage and I do no more than two strand twist (because that's the only thing that goes as planned) and use the widest comb or finger detangle
