Thread: A year of lost hair

  1. #1

    Default A year of lost hair

    This is what I have pulled off my brush in around one year





    What do you make of that?

    Looks like you've started your own tribble farm

    Is that more than normal if you add up all the strands we lose per day? I am wondering if you notice an overall loss in thickness.

    I have to admit, the first thing that popped into my mind is sending it off to a spinner to make some yarn! I used to knit, and I did come across a woman in my knitting days that would spin dog hair into yarn.

    It looks more than mine, but mine is in tight bundles which I used as rats a previous winter. I have three rats, one of which is still in the shower.

    And...er...oh my goodness...sorry... you have both kept your shed hair WHY...?

    (written thusly for effect - but I am genuinely curious )

    That is a LOT of hair!

    I lose more than a small handful daily but fortunately my hair doesn't seem to be thinning overmuch. However, my vacuum cleaner is rather clogged... Pets...? who needs them...? I shed at least as much as an Old English Sheepdog! (My mum cheered when I finally left home - not because of my (then) newly-gained independence but because she now had less hoovering to do...)

    No offense but EWWWWWWWW OMG!!!

    I can't stand even the little bit of hair I lose everyday (in the shower) cause it sticks to my skin and yeccch. I have no idea why shed hair disgusts me.
