Yeah, my hair sheds quite a bit too. It's annoying, but I seriously wouldn't stress over it.
You're meant to shed about 100 hairs per day and, for us curlies, those hairs don't fall to the floor, they get tangled up in our hair. If you're like me and wash you hair every few days (as opposed to every day), then that's a good few hundred hairs that are finally getting the chance to detangle from your curls.
So shedding is natural and fine and there's not much you can do really
You're meant to shed so new hairs can come through, so as long as you're not noticing that your hair is getting thinner / you are experiencing bald patches, then I'd just go with the flow!
Side note, just to your above post: Lorraine Massey's method is actually pretty minimalist, so maybe following that will break your PJ ways lol
