Default How do I stop my hair from shedding so much?

I need help! Everytime I do my hair it sheds so much so that I am becoming extremely concerned. It has only happened since I started to get my hair permed. If you have any suggestions or know of any products that would help please let me know.

Hey Appledumplin80!!!

Welcome to the forum girlie. You're gonna get great advice here. I am shedding and breaking a lot too and have tried everything under the sun so now I just try not to to manipulate my hair too much. Have you tried a protein treatment? That usually works, follow up with a moisturizing conditioner of course. Anyway Just wanted to say welcome. I'm sure the experts will help you out.

Don't know why but Hennalucent kept my hair strong. I wasn't shedding before but now hardly any hairs fall out.

It kinda makes your hair hard at first so I followed up with frequent conditioner rinses.

Anyone else get this kind of result with Hennalucent?

Give Nutrine garlic shampoo a try. I tried everything from Nexxus Emergencee to Motions CPR to Aphogee treatment for damaged hair and nothing worked until i got my hand on this one bottle for just $3.99. Goes to show you that it's not only the price that matters

I've been preaching this for years. Garlic shampoo is the only thing that has ever stopped my shedding. One wash almost completely stopped it. Be sure to follow the directions precisely. Also I just shampoo my scalp with this and I put conditioner on the rest of the hair. Garlic shampoo can be very drying so after washing follow up with a good deep conditioner.

My hair sheds too. But remmeber you lose like 20-100 hairs a day. I try to use Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor, it really helps. I also use vaseline and olive oil and wave novea gel type stuff, i think that will really help. Make sure that ur coms's teeth arent too small

---I THINK MSM is supposed to help in increasing the growing time of your strands (so, you'll have less shedding). I've been having success with it so far.

---The b-vitamins inositol and choline are supposed to help with shedding also.

I stopped taking birth control pills a while ago, and I waited for the shedding to start 3-4 months later because of the hormonal changes, but so far, I've had no problems.

I think it would be helpful to increase the amount of essential fatty acids (omega 3 and omega 6) you're taking also because these nourish the scalp (Evening Primrose and Flax seed oil (or fish oil).

Good luck and try not to worry so much. It is normal to lose 50-100 strands a day. If you have long hair, 100 strands can look like a lot when balled up, so you might not have a problem.

My fine 4b hair turns into barbed wire at the THOUGHT of a protein treatment like Aubrey Organics GPB or Motions silk protein conditioner. My stylist scolded me to lay off the protein when he saw the after affects of just 3-5 minutes of exposure.

Clairol Renewal 5X conditioner ($3) for dry/damaged hair strengthens it sufficiently. I do not get that too-soft and shedding phenomenon when I use CR5X conditioner consistently for my CO washes. It detangles pretty well, but I follow up with Biolage leave in tonic to detangle very easily.

I noticed you said that this started happening after you started getting relaxers. If you are waiting too long to do a touch up, that causes shedding too- as this has been my experience over the yrs. You have to figure out how long to wait is best for your hair.

Okay, appledumplin80 and Tonya -- girls I managed to lose only a very small amount of hair during my wash this morning. You guys know how much we shedders and breakers lose on wash day. This is what I did, thanks to Meinzzfuture who suggested garlic shampoo. I went out and got a bottle, I also got the conditioner. Follow the directions on the containers. I also did a deep condition treatment with Nexxus Humectress right after because the shampoo made my hair feel like it was clarified. The conditioner is great and very detangling. Give this a try ladies. I usually have to clean my comb of hair about three to four times when I wash coz I lose so much -- not today. Not even once, this is a first for me. I was able to clean my conmb when I was finished rollersetting. I am sitting under a warm dryer now, I'll post my results when I'm all dried and I comb my dry hair.

Yippee debyjay. your hair stopped shedding? Thats good to hear. Which brand of garlic shampoo did you use. Im so grateful for the lady in teh beauty supply store who told me to give it a try. I didnt see why a shampoo would make my hair stop shedding when expensive protein conditioners wouldnt but it worked
