HELP!=\

Hey everyone
I'm about 5 months into my transition and i'm noticing that my hair is starting to break and shed! Like everytime i hold on to the ends of my hair or run my fingers through it hair comes out.
Its not like I'm getting a big hair ball in my hand but it still is making me concerned.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
step up the cowashes and deep condition more. transitioning hair loves moisture. and if you want i add a light protein to my deep conditioner: its a mixture of yogurt, honey, and my cowash conditioner (Suave Humectant). but i am pretty sure more moisture might work. how often (if at all) do you cowash? i do it every 3 days. and i DC every 9

For shedding from the root:
Only comb hair with a conditioner in it that has lots of slip. I like Pantene Relaxed and Natural. This makes detangling my hair soo easy.

Only use a wide tooth comb or if you are prone to shedding (like me) just use your fingers section by section.

Check that it is not a medical or hormone issue.

For breakage:
Like Black Hoya Chick suggested a protein treatment can't hurt. But be wary if your is already healthy this could put too much protein in your hair making it hard. Is it breaking along the natural/relaxed line? If it is that line is fragile and just remember it's prone to breakage.

Conditioner and moisturing deep conditioning treatment. I apply whipped shea butter, olive oil, and honey into my hair for 45 minutes under a dryer every two weeks. The measurements aren't important but you don't need more than a tablespoon of honey. This helps keep my hair conditioned.

Also a wide tooth comb and a conditioner with slip when you detangle can help breakage.

Naturalhairgrows.com is a good site for helping understanding why you should never run fingers through hair or detangle while it is dry. Becuase doing so means you get a daily hair cut. Maybe putting hair in some twists might help it to grow?
