    Default Shedding due to combing and rubbing?

    Let's say i have to massage some oil into my scalp and afterwards combing it (still with the oil in the hair) how much hair is normal to shed during this proces?

    Pretty sure combing does not cause hair loss.

    It is normal for human beings to shed up to 100 hairs per day. Some days you may shed more. Some days you may shed less.

    Even vigorous combing of the hair should only shed 5-10 hair at he most in a single sitting. Unless you are pulling a very tight bristled comb through hair that is very knotted.
