There are shampoos/conditioners/leave-ins and other treatments that are designed to help prevent breakage and give you stronger roots. Depends on the type of hair you have (oily/dry/straight/etc), I’d go to a good hair dresser and ask their opinon about the products that might work best. Diet can also be a factor in the strength of your hair, and brushing too much can actually cause more breakage.

yeah, my hair is like that. It’s annoying, (but Fiance LOOOVes it when he finds one on his shirt randomly during the day, hahah!) I think it’s typical (and healthy!) to lose like 100 or more hairs a day, and if they’re long, you’ll just notice it more. A bunch on your hair brush, a bunch in the shower, but especially if you wear your hair down all day, then of course you’ll get pieces all over.

Same problem here (have you ever shut your hair in the car door? Yowch!).

I comb it it (wide tooth comb only) in the morning, try to do it again when I get home after school/work, and before bed I comb it and braid it or throw it in a bun on the top of my head to sleep. That actually helps a lot with preventing breakage and knotting it up. I also use anti-breakage shampoo like another poster mentioned.

Other than that, just sort of ‘feel your hair’ throughout the day and when you get to the ends, tug out the ones that are clearly out but just tied into other hairs. Pick them off your shirt/clothes throughout the day and at the end of the day before you put them in the hamper, and keep a lint roller by the couch/car/wherever Darling Husband will be sititng that can pick up your loose locks 🙂

I’m growing my hair out and it’s now a few inches past my shoulders and I am having this problem for the first time (I usually keep it cut above the shoulder).  I’m kind of a clean freak and it’s horrifying to find my hair all over the place.  I just picked one out of the stove burner of all places. lol

I think most of the hairs get loose while brushing (and somehow escape the bathroom) or when I push it back as I do things around the house.

I just find I have to wear it up while I’m home and especially while cooking (natch).  But even for work.  I sell other people’s stuff on consignment on eBay and I have to be extra-careful because I don’t want some buyer to open a package and find my hair all over the place.  Not good for business. lol

Do you clean out your hairbrush often? I try to clean mine out at least every few days when my hair gets long, because once it gets full of hair, it doesn’t do a very good job of catching the hair anymore. 

Also, maybe when you do laundry, or when you take your clothes off to put them in the hamper, check to see if they have hair on them. That’s likely part of the problem- hair on your shirts when you take them off, and then they just get stuck to his clothes in the wash/dryer

A Lent roll! I have 4 fur babies who get fur everywhere. Even after washing, some shirts will still get fur all over them.

We have this problem, too. My hair is healthy but some just naturally comes out.

I don’t have advice, but…I do know that my dog has swallowed some because when he licks his paws, occasionally it will come off the rug (if there is any on the floor) and he will swallow it. I have had to pull my own hair out of his bum before. It was enough to make me want to shave my head.

I vacuum a lot…but I think this is one of those things that is unavoidable. Hair is just gonna fall out!
