I feel like I lose maybe 50 strands a day. I may put my hands through my hair and a few will be there. I find I lose the most in the shower when I'm shampooing and conditioning my hair and when I'm straightening my hair.
Is this amount normal?
Now, I don't think I have the best habit as I do wash my hair daily with shampoo and conditioner. I also straighten my hair which I should try not to do.

it depends - how much do you touch your hair during the day? if you're constantly messing with it, I'd say that's pretty normal. My sister does it all the time and leaves hairballs everywhere aha
if you want to cut down the hair loss, try washing your hair every second day - it might seem a little greasy at first but honestly your hair will get used to it really quickly and adapt!
everyone says you shouldn't straighten you hair everyday, but some of us have unruly, uncooperative, Lion King style manes of hair and it just needs it. I straighten mine every day if I'm going outside, but try using a heat protection spray which are pretty cheap.
