hmm. I have fine straight hair too but don't have that problem. My sister has a real shedding problem, in the shower she collects it all on the wall and throws it out after she gets out. ha ha embarassing comment for my sis (I'm sure she'll get me back).

ALL hair is "dead hair just hanging on the scalp". Removing it is one of the primary functions of brushing.

Do the old "100 strokes" at bedtime and you'll be fine. Natural bristle brush is suppposedly the best for your hair.

Nature intends for this stuff to drop out so there's no logical reason why you'd have more of a "hanging on" problem than other people. Between brushing and washing you should be fine.

Nice image that hanging on the wall in the shower, though. That was the cherry this sundae needed ...

I am kind of comfused as to why you think you need to do saomething special, but since you think you do, have you considered a lice comb? The tines are very close together so that might help you more than a regular comb or brush.

Try one of those old-fashioned boar bristle hairbrushes, and brush your hair against its natural grain, so that what would normally be on the bottom is on the top as you brush.

A comb is just for styling the hair after brushing. A brush, properly used, will work from the scalp to the ends, smoothing, redistributing natural oils, and pulling out loose hairs.

You might have psoriasis, or some other skin "condition". You need to go see a dermatologist or at the very least a family doctor. This might be something that needs some sort of medication.

It is very difficult for us to recommend something when obviously you have a more severe problem then what we are thinking.

Call your doctor, make an appointment, get it checked out.

Do you color your hair? It could be weakening and breaking off. But I agree with kitchenelf, I'd go to a doctor if it is so unusual.
