My hair is constantly shedding onto my clothes. I thought regular trims might help, but they’re not. Nothing seems to be working. What can I do? –Kieraney
First, you’ll need to determine whether your hair is breaking or shedding. Hair strands that are shed will be the full length of the strand and will have a small white bulb attached at the root. Breakage may be in short pieces. A broken strand is an external result of a weakened strand. If you are getting more than the usual amount of daily shedding, between 50 and 100 strands, this is internal and should be expressed to your physician. If it is breakage, I suggest sharing this with your stylist so the appropriate conditioning treatments can be applied.
