Hey ladies, I’ve been having some hair loss and shedding recently. Any advise on methods or products on how to get my thick tresses back 😩

Also sounds like you need a moisture routine between washes. I spray my hair with either the Oyin rosewater spray or a neem face toner spray just slightly and then use a daily moisturizer

I like HydraThermas daily moisturizers as they have two; one for moisture and one for very light protein (very very light). I alternate this every other day and the. Once or twice a week use a penetrating butter instead of the daily moisturizer.

But first check your diet as iron deficiency and as someone stated vitamin d can cause shedding

How often are you styling your hair? How are you currently styling it?

Get your iron and vitamin D levels checked! My hair was shedding and breaking SOO bad and I felt like I was doing everything right (deep conditioning, protective styles, no heat, etc.) and I found out that my iron and vitamin d levels were low. Did a 2nd big chop and now I’m on the road to healthy, thick hair 🤞🏾

Girlies assemble! Question - so I have curly hair and I’ve been trying different curling creams and for some reason every time I use them like it curls but the texture is like half gel like half not?

My blowout shrinks so fast. I would like to use a flat iron to help, but I've never used one before. Would straightening it at 150-180° even do anything? I don't want heat damage, so I don't want to go above that.

I know shrinkage happens to everyone, but do any of you have UNEVEN shrinkage? When my hair is blown out, my hair length is even (have it cut in layers), but when it’s wash day or even the days after, a significant portion of hair at my nape shrinks so much and makes my hair look crazy uneven. It dries very quickly when wet, & I have to keep adding more product (almost absorbs it, but it still looks frizzy/dry) to just have it hold and not shrink to much... cont..

I just decided I'm gonna go natural after being relaxed for 15 years. I really don't want to big chop and am ok with transitioning slowly. I'm not very comfortable with short hair. Nothing is wrong with my hair now, its pretty healthy for relaxed hair. I just want a change. I would like some tips on anyone who has done it this way. Anyone who may be 4A or 4B. For the most part, I remember what my natural hair looks like, and I'm thinking I will fall in one of those categories.
