I shed obscene amounts of hair

I know it's natural to lose quite a bit of hair everyday, but I lose a LOT more than most people. When I wash my hair, I feel like I'm pulling clumps out. I also clog drains REALLY quickly. With the drain mesh thing, I usually have the drain clogged by the end of one shower. This seems to have started when I grew my hair out (my hair is a little longer than shoulder length). I know I lose a lot because even living with other people with long hair, the majority of the hair that's fallen on the ground is mine. My hair also doesn't appear to be thinning or anything, it just keeps falling out. I'm pretty sure I'm not balding since I just recently turned 20, but what could be causing this and what can I do to fix it? It's such a bitch having to sweep up my hair all the time and seeing it everywhere. Maybe I'm using the wrong products or something. I condition everyday and shampoo every other day.

cliffs:
-losing lots of hair
-not balding
-what is causing this and what can I do to fix it?

In my experience, the fix is to have shorter hair. Yours might just be more weakly anchored than average, and the extra weight causes it to come off faster.

You're probably more likely to develop male pattern baldness. It starts for alot of guys in their 20s so you might want to keep a close eye on it.

Could be balding. Could also be normal. How thick is your hair, overall? Also, how often do you shower/wash your hair? If it's less than everyday, it's probably just a buildup of hair you've lost over a period of time since your last shower.

everyday. and im pretty damn good about it
the balding might be an issue. men on my dad's side of the family tend to bald pretty early, but not during their 20s? Pretty much all of them 40 or over show significant signs of balding whether it's receding hairlines, thinning, or a fat bald spot on the top of their heads. (i recently was enlightened about this when I went to visit a bunch of family a few weeks ago.) could it possibly be the shampoo/conditioner I'm using? I've been switching around, but don't really use high quality/expensive products (buying expensive cosmetics makes me feel like a girl).

male pattern baldness is passed on from the mother's side... so look to that side of your family for clues

I had this problem, and then I realize that after all the years of my denial ... I was thinning up top.

Myth. You're a result of 50% of your father's genes and 50% of your mother's. It's a crapshoot trying to determine whether you'll bald at a certain time, unless both sides have horrible balding, then you know you're doomed. lol.

While you're correct about being, overall, 50/50 genetic mix he is sort of correct about it being passed on the "mother's side" (although that's relatively imprecise language to use.)

Male pattern baldness is an X-linked trait, and a woman's egg only contains an X chromosome: the gene for male pattern baldness MUST come from the mother. If your grandfather does not have male pattern baldness, a male grandchild will probably not have it either (unless the mother was a carrier of the gene because of her father, in which case, it'd be a 50% probability of her male offspring getting it.)
