Hairloss and scalp issues- What is normal?

For as long as I can remember I have always lost a lot of hair. It was particularly bad just after I had my children. I had remembered reading about hairloss on a pregnancy/newborn forum so I wasn’t too worried. My youngest is now 3, so surely it should have slowed down?

As we all do at 3 in the morning when we can’t sleep, I started googling, I didn’t realise that its normal to lose up to a 100 hairs a day! When you work that out over a week it seems like a lot, but as the post says, new hair is constantly growing, finally reassured I could get back to sleep!

I have noticed that at times of stress I tend to lose more hair, which reassuringly is also normal. I usually react to stress with a flare-up of dermatitis. Naturally, I tend to touch my head more, rake my hands through my hair, which I suppose encourages even more hairloss. Quite recently, after a really bad flare up, and some more late night Googling, I  found a shampoo and conditioner that changed my life. I know it sounds dramatic, but its true, I felt so self-conscious about constantly touching my head. It was even worse at the school gates, especially after a lice outbreak at the school. I always assumed people would be looking at me thinking I had lice!

Getting back to the shampoo, I went on the search for a sulfate and paraben free, clarifying shampoo. I finally found one Hask Charcoal Shampoo and Conditioner. Its made a dramatic difference to my scalp, I didn’t like the shampoo the first couple of times I used it, but now I won’t use anything else.

If you are concerned by your hairloss, then see your GP, there are many underlying causes of hairloss.
