Is it breakage or shedding? If it's shedding you'll see a white bulb attached to the strand.
We shed hair each day, but if your hair is braided in tight braids the hair that sheds each day won't be falling out. This will cause what looks like shedding in excess. But what is happening is when you finally unbraid, all the hairs you've lost over a long period of time are not being held together by the braid anymore and finally falling, so the shedding is actually normal, you're just seeing all of it at once.
If it's breakage it might be an issue of moisture-protein balance being off.
I don't know if very tight braids could be causing more hair fall because of the tightness, hopefully someone with more knowledge on this subject will chime in!
fine - low porosity - medium density - normal elasticity. Very high dews. Soft water.
