Oily and Hair falling out! Help!

I started the curly girl method about a month ago and at first it looked great. Recently, about a week ago, my hair started to get REALLY greasy/oily. It would be dirty the day after I washed it the night before. I have really thick, long hair and before the CG method I could go every other night without washing and it would be clean. Also, I comb my hair in the shower with a wide tooth comb, but my hair is literally falling out, as in multiple strands come out from the bottom. I want my nice curly hair back that I had a couple weeks ago, but I just don't know what to do?

Are you only co washing? if so you could try using a sulfate free shampoo to help with your hair being oily (make sure it is sulfate free). my sister has oily hair also i use a small amount of shampoo and only scrub in her scalp with it then rinse it out and then co wash her hair afterwards. Now with the hair falling out DO NOT GET SCARED lol. A person loses up to 100 strands of hair everyday. For us curly girls since we do not comb our hair on a daily bases and mainly only in the shower it will seem as if a lot of hair is falling out. its just our normal hair shedding the same thing happens to me. remember to always start combing hair at the bottom and work your way up only when conditioner is in it with a wide tooth comb.
If you feel like you're losing a lot more hair than usual, you might want to check with your doctor. It's probably nothing, but there are a few health conditions that can cause excessive hair loss. Or certain medicines.
