View Full Version : Amount of shedding that's normal on fin?

Just wondering how much shedding most guys experience as "normal" on fin. As we all know, the average person sheds ~100 hairs a day, so fin isn't going to grind all shedding to a halt. My issue is that I started fin in October, *after* a HT last June. I was experiencing a heightened level of shedding following the HT and wanted to bring the shedding down. Fin seems to have done that, but after 9 months on it, I still see some shedding--about 8-10 hairs on my hands between shampooing and conditioning in the shower, and a few when I'm applying minoxidil. If i vigorously brush my hair back and forth, maybe 1-3 fall out. My issue is that I don't know if I'm responding poorly to fin, or if this is just the normal shedding. Does fin usually stop essentially all shedding that's attributable to MPB?
