Wow! I am so happy to find this thread! I had no idea that breastfeeding makes you shed.

I am 9 months post partum with my second baby and i am shedding like crazy. Just did a garlic-henna treatment and i can say that i am shedding a lot less, but I have only done ot once so i will have to do it a couple more times to determine the results.

With my first baby i had no shedding - my hair was thick, dry and grew very long.

With my second it was even thicker and longer but not as dry. However i have been shedding so much that i actually stopped combing my hair for fear of going bald!

No real texture change to speak of, but, my father, who has always had an afro, now has compleatly straight hair, i mean bone straight, so i am wondering if the same will happen to me! I hope not!

I will do another garlic treatment in 2 weeks time, but this time without the henna. Will post results then.
hair type - definately 4a

wash - any baby shampoo

conditioning styler - homemade blend with shea, coconut, avocado mango, plam, castor, almond and essential oils
