Wash 6: Insane amout of shedding :(

Home / Wash Day / Wash 6: Insane amout of shedding :(

Todays wash was horrible.  My hair shed 5 times the normal amount.  It shed after the wash, it shed as I was rinsing out the conditioner, it shed as I rollerset.  I haven’t added any new products to my regimen.  I just don’t know what going out.  And it’s long strand shedding too but no breakage – I carefully examine the strands and there’s always a little white bulb at the end aka shed hair.

I just don’t understand it because my hair is getting longer, there’s no breakage and out of nowhere this massive shedding comes.  I was a little freaked out a lot of other ladies over at longhaircareforum.com are experience the same massive influx of shedding as it gets warmer.  I’m using this to console me.  I know my hair grows more in the summer so I guess with that comes an increase in shedding as well.

I know my hair is going to look a lot thinner because of this and that’s what bother me.  I’m most definintely going to have to trim an inch to two inches off to get rid of the thin ends.

I’m praying the shedding slows down soon, until it does, I’ll be babying my hair.

P.S. I did my first overnight pre-poo last night and I’m never doing it again.  My hair was soaked when I woke up this morning because I sweated from my scalp so much during the night.  Gross.
