I have been a member of this board for a while and have been a lurker. Thanks to the posts and advice on this board, my hair has grown to shoulder length and even longer in the back. However, I need some serious advice from you guys. Last week, I got a re-touch from my normal stylist and she said "your hair is shedding and thinning real bad." About 3 weeks prior, I had some color placed in my hair. I had started using the curling iron and blow dryer more than usual because I like the way my hair looked "hanging down" and everyone complimented me on the growth and how young it made me look. Anyway, since I had the touch-up, my hair comes out in clumps when I even touch, comb or wash it. I did my deep conditioning with cholesterol and a few tablespoons of Aphogee, did a roller set and it still sheds. Yesterday I did the full Aphogee treatment and there is still shedding. When I ran my fingers through my hair to loosen the curls, there is a lot of shedding. I'm serious when I say clumps. It's so scary to see your hair in a big ball like that. I'm going to try a garlic deep conditioning, keep moisturing, keep using the Boundless Tresses (wonderful product that I have been using for a long while), continue my rollersets, increase my vitamin intake, etc. Do any of you have any other suggestions? I do take anti-depressant meds but I have been taking them for years and it they never caused my hair to shed. This has also been a very stressful year for me and I don't know if that is contributing to the large amount of shedding. I don't know what to do. Please help!!!
