Telogen effluvium: Sudden apparent hair loss without the creation of bald spots usually represents a normal periodic process called telogen effluvium. This tends to resolve spontaneously before anyone notices any thinning of the hair (you usually just see a lot in the shower drain). If others notice that your hair is thinning, however, then you may want to consult your doctor.
