Shedding? I'm afraid it's breakage! Help!

..Had my hair braided for 5-7 days while wearing a U-part wig. I took it down to wash & place in my 3 ponytails going straight down the middle (thanks Naptural85). I seemed to have lost a lot of hair. I moisturized with water, Shea moisture, and my own hair oil mix almost daily. I seem to lose a lot of hair on average, though I spray with water, moisturize and then seal and twist in several twists each night. Am I manipulating my hair too much? Why so much loss? Thanks!

Oh and I believe it's mostly breakage not shedding, not many bulbs.
Forgive me if this should have been added to another thread. I couldn't find one.
The first photo is the while washing (shea moisture) loss, 2nd is loss while moisturizing and placing in several twists.

    If it's coming from the roots, it'd shedding. We shed roughly about 100 hairs a day. If you don't see the root, then it's breakage. Personally, (I don't mean to offend) I think wigs & braids with extensions can cause breakage. But you can use Jamaican black castor oil to regrow your hair.
