Hi Janet,

Normally, we lose about 100 strands of hair every day-- this is normal. If you grab your hair and put it to the side, then close your hand while holding it and gently move your hand down, you should see a loss of a few strands of hair. However, if you find yourself with a chunk of hair in your hands without pulling on your hair then you may be suffering from hair loss. In your case, it can take time after you've gone through hormonal changes to stop losing hair but with time, it should be less hair lost. Shiny hair is a sign of healthy hair, so if you aren't experiencing any other symptoms other than a few hairs lost, then this is normal.
