I know there is supposed to be a healthy amount of hair shed following removal of braids. However, is this normal:
I removed my braids (rows) last night in the dark. Mainly because my son was asleep next to me and also because I get nervous seeing alot of shed hair. I raked through each segment as I unbraided. When I was done, I turned on the light and combed through my entire head of hair with a detangling comb. I got a normal amount of shed hair. I then ran EVO through my hair wrapped it in a cap and scarf and went to bed.
now, here's where I have a ?, This AM, I did a pre-wash comb through. Hair was STILL coming out. I then washed it, again more strands coming out. After washing I placed a deepcon in my hair, combed A TINY BIT and braided it into two braids. Still-more hair. I am wearing a plastic cap, a scarf, a piece, and a hat to work today (it's a very nice hat, so don't go thinking I look a hot ghetto mess). BUT will the hair fall ever slow down? Usually it stops when I blow dry it--this is when I lose what looks like a massive amount as the dryer shaked it all loose. I don't really want to blow dry it, but I may have to.
What is your braid removal/de-shedding procedure? Do you lose hair like i do, or do you get it all with one comb out? HELP PLEASE!
Other thing is i seemed to get more breakage than I normally do. I will not return to that braider again. My hair seemed to grow in the three weeks and I really want to keep braiding, but I don't like breakage.
