Re: Hair loss

I am a curly girl as well. Are you moisturizing? What is your current hair routine? As I'm you know, we lose about 100 strands a day. With curly hair, since our hair is intertwined, we don't see the 100 strands a day, but when we wash our hair or comb it out, we see a whole big bunch! This could just be an accumulation of a few days hair. With the straight hair, the hair is more like to just slide out and stick to clothes. Not a seriously problem for curlies if you haven't noticed.

As far as your hair breaking; hair that breaks is in DYING need of moisture. Especially with the summer time around the corner, some items can seem like they are providing moisture but can actually be sucking the moisture out of your hair. If your hair seems worst in the shower, that can also mean that yor have build up in your hair. You will need to find a nice clarifying conditioner, and if you are into homeopathy solutions, you can use apple cider vinegar as a rinse out to close your cuticles up.

If you are heat styling- STOP. This cause you to lose elasticity over time which can lead to stretched out uncurly curls!

There are tons of treatments you can try there ranging from homemade and house bought. But it is important to know your hair's characteristics so you don't make the situation worst. I would first try a clarifying (gentle, if you can find one) shampoo and a conditioner without silicones. Moisturize with a leave in and use gel or mousse or whatever you use.
