I have a lot of hair. It's long, it's thick and it's blonde (I read that blonde hair has 40,000 more strands than brunettes; is that accurate?). There is just a plethera of hair. All of which would be fine except one problem: it sheds everywhere! And I mean, everywhere. 

 

My fiance finds it dozens of strands in his house, on his clothes, in his own hair. My best friends find it littered around their rooms and cars. I can't shower anywhere but home for fear of clumping drains. And heaven forbid I borrow a friend's brush! Everywhere I go, I mark my territory with a long wavy blonde strand.

So is that healthy? Is there something I can do prevent shedding so much? I'm concerned that it's an indicator of poor health or that it could lead to bald spots.
