Why Do You Observe More Hair Fall during Shower?

You might be worried after seeing hair clumps clinging to your drain every time you take a shower. So let’s discuss if it’s really a serious matter of concern or not. 

First of all, understand the difference between hair fall and hair shedding. Just like how our body has a natural mechanism of shedding skin cells and replacing them every few weeks, our body has a natural way of shedding hair too. So after their lifetime, they fall, and new hair replaces them. During the shower, shampooing and conditioning stimulate that hair, and as a result, they fall easily. So it is entirely normal.

On average, we shed almost 50-100 hairs a day. And during the shower, one can lose up to 150-200 hair. If you wash after many days, you might observe slightly more hair fall. If you have thicker hair, you might notice more hair clumps because your hair has a higher volume. 


Do not brush your wet hair on a precautionary basis, and always use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair. Also, don’t wash your hair too often. If you experience more than usual hair fall, consult your doctor to understand the underlying cause.
