Is this normal?

I have to start wearing my hair up at work, so I decided I just wouldn't wash it those days I wear it up, which is about 3. I went the full weekend without washing it, washed it today and lost a ton of hair in the shower, plus a ton when I combed it when I got out. Is this normal? I lose the same amount when i wash it every day which I guess was okay, but this was like triple and it was like strand after strand. I'm kind of freaking out. lol.
Yes it's normal it's the three days worth of hair being removed at once instead of daily


3A/B mix with flat roots dark blonde (refusing to call it brunette I miss my blonde baby hair) lovin my curls
rockin the curls God gave me.

Routine!
Shampoo n/a
Conditioner Vo5 Moisture Milks
Leave in Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
Shower, comb, apply leave in and mousse in wet hair then scrunch out the water and sometimes.
Second day, Wake up mist with water and smooth Shea Moisture Curl enhancing smoothie over hair
Yup, same thing happens to me. I tend to lose a ton of hair anyway but more so if I skip a day.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Repair Me, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC, UFD Curly Magic
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

Normal! I only wash my hair every 4-6 days, so I get what looks like a small mouse in the shower each time I wash my hair...so that sounds gross, but it's normal. You're supposed to lose something like 100 hairs a day, so if you wait a few days to wash and comb, you'll have a few hundred more hairs

Also since I am going 3 days without washing it, my roots tend to get oily...will that eventually go away?? Or do I need to just keep using the dry shampoo?

^^ day 1 of going CG; avatar = 6 months later
I noticed this too, after I started wearing my hair curly on a regular basis. My hair started to clog the drain, which it never did when I straightened daily. I freaked out too, thinking I was losing more hair, but it doesn't appear to be thinning and I think it's because I'm not touching it or brushing/combing during the day like I used to. So I think you are fine.
