Why is my 13 year old daughter losing so much hair?

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

I have recently noticed that my 13 year old daughter is losing a lot of hair. If she has been in the bathroom brushing her hair, the sink and counter is just covered with her hair as well as the bathroom floor. After vacuuming her bedroom, the beater bar on my vacuum is covered with her hair. I know everyone loses about 100 strands of hair everyday but she is deffinately losing more than that. Her nail beds appear to be healthy. The appearace of her hair looks healthy but does feel a little dry lately. Her hair care routine has not changed in the past two years; shampoo/conditions approximately 3-4 times per week and uses a straightening iron about the same. She does take an over the counter allergy medicine but has for about 4 years now. Is there anything she can do to stop this hair loss? Not only would it make her happy to stop losing so much hair but it will make me even happier so that I am not having to constantly clean up all the hair off her bathroom sink and floor!

I have switched to a different brand of conditioner 2 months ago and now I am shedding a lot more after I wash my hair. Can conditioner cause hair loss?


It is very unlikely that the use of conditioner will result in excessive hair loss. While it is possible that allergies and rare reactions to a certain chemical in your conditionercan result in hair loss, chances are this isn”t the case.

There is a chance (although this is not very likely as well) that excessive use of any hair product will suffocate hair follicles and would result in hair shedding.

In any case, you should consider other factors have contributed to your hair shedding condition: dietary changes and increased levels of stress are much more likely to cause hair loss.
