I started tracking my AM and PM sheds on Day 3… so this doesn’t account for a full 30 days, but I figured this would be a good time to start the graphing. I rated the sheds on a scale of 1 to 4 – level 1 representing just 1-2 shed strands and level 4 representing what I consider “excessive,” but not quite wash-day shed level (there is, of course, room for inconsistency here, but this is where we’ll start and make improvements and adjustments as we go along).
- Average shed for the month: 1.7
- Average AM shed: 1.8
- Average PM shed: 1.6
- Average post wash day shed: 2.4 (interesting…)
- Level 1 sheds: 8
- Level 2 sheds: 12
- Level 3 sheds: 15
- Level 4 sheds: 2
- Once daily sheds: 11
- Twice daily sheds: 13
- Completely shedless days*: 1
While this data collection will likely only get more interesting, I think it’s a really good base point for tracking improvements and/or relapses.
* not sure how relevant this is… because that could just mean that I didn’t touch my hair all day and kept it wrapped up. Is that really something that should be tracked? *shrug*
