could be alopeacia or male pattern baldness. Women experience an all over thinning throughout the crown with male pattern baldness. Alopeacia tends to come on in patches. See a dermatologist to determine what's occuring if your hair fall seems more than typical.

that's not good. you have to go to the doctor to get it check. the only thing that i know that causes that is that it's a side effect of a medication that you're taking.

Go to the doctor and get your thyroid checked. Hypothyroidism is a common cause of hair loss in women, and it is extremely *extremely* common among women your age. (I have it, I was diagnosed in my early 30s.)

I have the SAME problem...My son went to hair cutting school and he tells me that its perfectly normal and it always seems like "too much" to me..

But its really a normal amount that falls out!! He said that I "focus too much" and "worry too much" and thats why it "seems" like there is sooo much coming out!! lol

Its important to drink water and eat right and your hair should be fine...In the spring time its normal to "shed" some hair...lol Its easier said than done. I worry too......lol

Good luck!!

Well if you're a blonde or do not have naturally dark hair, this could be perfectly normal. Blonder shades lack the courser cuticle that other hair colors and textures have that keep it from falling or being pulled out so easily and therefore, it tends to be thinner.

Alternatively this can be a sign of poor nutrition. Make sure you're eating well and taking a daily multi-vitamin. Also, be sure that you're not stressing your hair by brushing too harshly when it's tangled or wet. Always start at the ends and work your way up.

Good luck!!!!

It could be your diet, but if that doesn't work, probably best to see a doctor and make sure it's nothing serious.
