Hair falling out?

hi there!So I have 3a curls and stopped using heat products about 5 months ago after over a decade of straightening my hair. Yay! I also do not brush my hair, I only use my fingers to rake. My hair is super healthy now!About 3 months ago, I noticed my hair has been falling out-WAY more shedding than I've ever had in my entire life. Like taking a shower clogs my drain regularly and I can run my fingers through my hair and come out with many strands of hair.Any ideas on what could be causing this? I got rid of SLS in my hair products, am very gentle when shampooing, use a microfiber towel and plop (absolutely no rubbing) use lukewarm water, and had a full blood work up to check my thyroid among other things that all came back fine.Any ideas I could try?
