Dear chenaj,

I'm glad the garlic treatment worked for you! But it's impossible not to shed at all. We lose about 50-100 hairs a day.
And if your hair is MBL - OMG, that's awesome - and you only detangle once a week a pingpong ball amount of shed hair doesn't sound much to me.
Curlynikki recently did this post about shedding after a pregnancy. Maybe you will find some helpful tips there, too.

Do you have a fotki?

I would be curious to see if its grown at all of broken off since changing my routine and using stylers. I only do blow dry staright once a year, so i'll have to wait until next year to find out!

Your hair looks very healthy on that picture! I guess it was somehow humid that day. That's why your hair started to shrink.

You know what really freaks me out is the fact that i can just pull strands of hair out from my ends - that's what i call shedding. I know, we "shed" 50-100 hairs a day, but its the additional hairs that just come away with frightning ease in my hands when styling or detangling that i find problematic. Does anyone else have that issue?

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. Anyway...it is very relaxing.

V. intersting you should mention the weather. I read someting somewhere a few years ago about using products for skin and hair that are made with local/ regional ingredients because they respond better if you do. It was really interesting. I'll try and find it again and post the link.

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!

Hi everyone!

I posted on the general board & got no replies, so I'm gonna try here! How easy is it to get CG products on the ground in London? I'm going to be studying at City University in January. Should I just bring my products from the US over with me?
