Default I think i found one of the causes of my "shedding"!

Hi German Curly,
Well you could be right about the hair that is loose and coming out when washing. However, this weekend i co-washed with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration for the first time and not a single hair came out of my head in the shower whilst washing or rinsing.

I then did a DT with AO Island Naturals conditioner
and as soon as i applied it, hair started coming out - it was kind of scary actually! So i washed it out immediatedly and more hair just came out in my hands!

I thought maybe it could be the coconut milk in it, but Hello Hydration has coconut too, so i'm not sure if that's it. In anycase I gave it to my cousin who is a super thick and super curly type 4 and her hair loves it.

So, no more AOIN for me!

Does anyone else have that issue?
Are you sure you are actually pulling the hair out? Maybe it is already lose and just comes out because it sticks to your fingers?
Do you massage your scalp? I've just started to massage my scalp with sweet almond oil and some drops of rosemary oil. I've read somewhere that rosemary oil also stops shedding and helps with growth. is very relaxing.
