Hi, this is Shelli of Hairscapades. I know that this is controversial, but though I saw a little decrease in my shedding when I kept the conditioner away from my scalp, what really decreased my shedding was an ApHogee 2 minute Keratin Protein treatment. My shedding started to increase a lot in September/October last year. I mean, I couldn't touch my hair without strands coming out non-stop. The protein treatment stopped this in its tracks!!

I hadn't used protein in forever and though I used henna, it was only on my roots as it was loosening my curls with repeated applications. So, I think my hair needed a strengthening treatment.
If you don't use protein, you may want to try it out ... and, make certain you follow a protein treatment with a moisturizing conditioner (I would suggest a deep conditioner, not an instant one).
Hope that helps!
