New Here - need help
i was really excited to find this forum. I transitioned for 2 years after having my hair relaxed for many many years. My hairdresser cut off the last of my straightened hair in July. The 2 years were long and I wore buns or braids most of that time. Now that i only have natural hair, i have found some products that work for a wash and go. i like wearing my hair out now that it is finally finished transitioning. i was so tired of wearing it up all of the time. My hair is in some places a few inches below my shoulder and in others around chin level. I wash or co-wash once a week or less (10 days sometimes), sometimes deep condition, put product in my hair, pineapple it at night, sleep on a satin pillowcase and then just take it down in the morning. THis wash and go lasts for the week or 10 days staying moisturized. i sometimes refresh product around my edges. My problem - a TON of my hair comes out every time i wash. in fact, the amount of hair looks like a small black rodent. i have heard that you have to lose a lot of hair before you will notice that it is getting thinner and i would just as soon not wait for that. I don't notice a difference in the apparent thickness of my hair (other than my temples are much thinner than they ever were when i was relaxing my hair, but that may be due to age and hormones). I never lost this much hair when i was relaxing it. Any suggestions? SORRY for the long post. Thank you for reading!
