Have you been puttin your hair up for long periods of time and then taking them down? If so this may be normal shedding that hasn't fallen out yet.

Hi babyblue113,

Maybe your hair is simply going through a shedding phase, however I have used Nutrine garlic shampoo in the past with great results. I also use the conditioner. The shampoo comes in both scented and unscented. Cost about $3.00 each. The shampoo causes my hair to dry out so I use a moisturizing conditioner after.

HTH

Hey BabyBlue This EXACT thing happened to me a few months back(Hair shedding with the bulb attached in long strands). My shedding was massive and it had to do with me cutting meat out of my diet and not supplementing my protein intake properly. I had stopped eating meat in November but the effects of me not supplementing properly(by eating legumes,tofu etc) showed up about 4 months later. I looked up info and they said that this is the body's response to not getting protein, it starts getting rid of things that require LOTS of it (example=hair). I started taking 100mg of B6 daily to stop the shedding in it's tracks and started eating ALOT of protein fast after a week i calmed down and started eating the normal amount. The abnormal shedding went away within a week. Anyway, i thought i'd just tell ya in case this may be your situation -- jainygirl

How's your diet? water intake? protein intake? Are you taking ANY form of medication INCLUDING over the counter things like Tylenol? Are you under stress? Have you added or subtracted anything to/from your usual hair routine?

Hi jainygirl:

Thanks for your response. I stopped eating meat years ago and I think I have a pretty good intake of protein. I am considering taking the b6 vitamin you suggested, I want this shedding to stop!

I started taking birth control pills for about a month, I finished my pack about a couple of weeks ago but I never went back for a refill, do you think that is the culprit.

Patience:

I was having these bad headaches last week so I was taking Tylenol. As for my water intake it has been really low in the past few weeks, for some reason I just had not been craving water like I used to. But that seems to be over with and I have been drinking more water this week.

Baby Blue

I'm with you. I'mm usually pulling out a whole bunch of hair from the ends. This has happening for the about 8-12 weeks. I don't know what to do. I am on the no-poo method, so I don't really eant to buy the nutrine garlic shampoo but a sista's tired of losing her hair.

I'd been experiencing this a ton after my last touch-up in early May.

I just got a cut and have noticed that breakage is tremendously down compared to before. I will wash my hair tonight and see what happens as far as hair coming out from the root.

I think its the birth control. It usually takes a few weeks for the body to realize the hormonal balance it was maintaining isnt the same anymore. When I was on BC pills, my weight gain always took about a month or two to begin coming off, my skin started to act up in about a month.

In your case, your hair could be the thing that's affected when you add (and take away) hormones. Mine were weight and skin.

**sigh** I wonder if my BC has anything to do with my shedding now....I thought it was from my last salon perm, but then again Im on my second pack of pills. BC is a must for me...my fiance and I are no position for any suprises! is there any way to counter those side effects if they are causing shedding?

I have put on some weight, but I didnt even think the bc pills might be the reason. My skin was completely clear while on bc pills and now im noticing some breakouts. I think its the bc pills too.

We have a winner! I definitely think this could have something to do with your shedding. My hair shed like crazy after I stopped BCP. I was freaked out, but my doc told me it was normal and would work itself out. And it has!
