What could cause hair to come out constantly?

I am not losing my hair and I definitely have plenty of it, but everytime I brush or just run my fingers through my hair several strands come out. I wouldn't mind so much, except I have long hair so my chair at work has my hair on it, the floor of my car is covered in it. I just hate feeling like I leave strands of my hair everywhere I go. I take daily vitamins and am generally healthy. Any insight would be appreciated.

Sounds like your hair may be weak and may have a lot of breakage going on. Put some treatments on it to strengthen it and reduce styling with heated utensils if possible.

You might need to take Iron, but I would go to your doctor and get blood work done to be sure.

Actually, it's quite normal. I've read somewhere that you lose 1000 pieces of hair a day. That number sounds huge but when you think about how many you lose in relation to how much is actually on your head, it's a small number.

stress. people lose 100 strands a day so don't worry about it too much. Use an antibreakage shampoo and conditioner (Tresemme makes one) if you want to prevent breakage more. I have long hair too and I straighten it and use a heat tamer. Its just loose strands of hair that fall out everyone has it but people that have long hair notice it more since their hairs long.

A number of things can cause excessive hair loss. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary.

Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment of the thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.

Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again.

Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, medicines used in chemotherapy to treat cancer, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.

Certain infections can cause hair loss. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.

Finally, hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.

It is completely normal to lose 75 to 150 strands of hair EACH DAY. This is very normal, and the longer your hair is, the more noticeable it tends to be, probably because the ones that naturally fall out get caught up in the rest of your hair, which of course makes it seem like there are chunks of it coming out when you run your hands through it.

There is no need to worry, or no remedy.

The only time you need to worry, is if there are indeed bald patches on your scalp, which may be a form of alopecia, typically caused from stress, and you should see your doctor

You should listen to Br8dqueen, cuz she's my girlfriend :) and she knows her craft ;)

What could cause hair to come out constantly?

There are several reasons this could be happening.

Are you eating enough protien?

Have you recently started a new medication?

Do you have other symptoms such as gaining abdominal weight and cold intollerance?

Have you been wearing your hair in an up-do more often recently or had a perm or color treatment?

Dietary changes can cause hair loss.

Medications, especially birth control pills or others containing hormones can cause hair loss.

Hair loss, cold intollerance and weight gain are symptoms of a thyroid condition. If you have these symptoms call your dr. Thyroid problems can lead to bigger things.

Having your hair done or wearing it up in a pony tail can loosen hair folicles and cause a little more hairloss than you may be used to.

Also, if you notice you are losing clumps of hair in other places,

eyelashes, eyebrows, pubic area. etc.... go see a dr. Propecia(sp?) is a disease that causes hair loss.

I hope that helps :-)
