Could be shedding but I believe it's breakage. Help!
After having most of my hair braided for 5-7 days while wearing a U-part wig. I took it down to wash and place in my three ponytails going straight down the middle (thanks). I seemed to have lost a lot of hair. I moisturized with water, Shea moisture and my own hair oil mix almost daily. I seem to lose a lot of hair on average though I spray with water, moisturize and then seal and twist in several twists each night. Am I manipulating my hair too much? Why so much loss? ThanksOh and I believe it's mostly breakage not shedding. MadamMel
It looks like shedding to me. If your hair was braided for several days, daily shedding will accumulate. A monthly protein treatment will give you hair more strength. I have also heard tea rinses are a huge help to those who have a lot of shedding.
