HELP I'm Shedding

Post by NaturalSistaAtl on 8th February 2011, 5:03 pm

Help me please!!!! I've been natural for about 5 years now..I get sissor happy and color happy, so I'm always chopping and dying(natural instincts). But recently I decided to finally let my hair just grow..Now my hair is shedding like a poodle and has become dry..I use Jane Carter solutions, Kinky curly, and Cantu to mositurize my hair and hold my curls but it seems like my hair is getting dryer and breaking even more..What should I do???

I am an advocate for regular deep conditioning. I DC every week no matter what and sometimes twice a week. It has helped greatly with my dryness and length retention.
My regimen is basically this:
Pre-poo with oil for 30 min
Shampoo (lightly)
Deep Condition (5-20min)
Rinse throughly
Apply a leave-in
Seal with a cream or butter

As for shedding, it's normal and it's going to happen. Sometimes during the year you many shed more than other times. Black tea rinses are good for decreasing shedding because they block DHT - the hormone that is linked to shedding.
