    Hi there, I doubt your hair is truly falling out. Remember, every normal HEALTHY human loses about 100 strands of hair per day. For straighties, their hair just falls out throughout the day and they don't really notice. For us curlies, those hairs get stuck in our hair and need to be removed, either with finger combing, conditioning, or regular combing.

    Are you using any stylers to help combat frizz? Most CG girls use a combo of gels and smoothers to help control their hair. It seems to be only a lucky few who can get away with conditioner alone.

    I wouldn't be too worried if I were you. Your story sounds exactly like mine... my first co wash, I lost what seemed like a TON of hair. I freaked right out, and got on here, convinced that I would have no hair at all left. I am now almost 2 months in, and have very very little hair loss, in fact, much less than I have ever experienced in my life.

    The second factor may in fact be the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Too-Shea-Extra-Moisturizing-Conditioner-p-105.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-too-shea-extra-moisturizing-conditioner]Jessicurl Too Shea[/buylink] you used, my hair hated it! I was really disappointed when I first tried Jessicurl because my hair was just frizzed all over the place. I had ordered a Jessicurl sample pack, and after much experimenting, I found that my hair just reacts very poorly to both the shampoo and conditioner they offer. I had decent success with their [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]Curl Keeper[/buylink], and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Rockin-Ringlets-Styling-Potion-p-100.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-rockin-ringlets]Rockin Ringlets[/buylink], but the smell is a bit strong for me to take.

    What I have found works best for me is a Co-wash of Suave Coconut Shampoo, followed by a Conditioner of the same thing. To add extra moisture (since this is not the thickest of conditioners) I use Nexxus Headress Weightless Leave in Conditioner, and then usually finish it all off with Herbal Essence's Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel. (The gel does have one cone, but it is a totally water soluble one, and I've had great success!)

    Hope this helps a bit. :wink:

    I agree with the others. I'm just over a week going CG and my first co wash I had what I thought was a ALOT of hair loss, and it continued for several days. But both yesterday and today I noticed the hair loss is significantly less, or more what I would consider normal.

    Also I try to keep in mind that of the hair loss I do experience, the hairs are all scrunched up at the bottom of the drain so it probably looks worse than it truly is. And it would probably look even worse yet if my hair were long.

    Did you use any products after conditioning? Most of us need to use some kind of mousse or gel to control frizz and hold the curl pattern. And, if you are just starting a CG method, you hair may take a few weeks to settle into its natural state. You don't mention your curl type; which would be helpful for product recommendations.

    Don't worry too much about the hair loss. When I co-wash (about once every -10 days) It looks like a family of spiders have taken up residence on my shower drain! Gross! :angry7: Actually, I think it is healthy to see the hair come out. Otherwise, it would just be hangin' around on my head...strange.

    :toothy7:Good luck and don't give up!

    You may have a sensitivity to magnesium sulfate if you are using the Jessicurl stylers. They all have that ingredient, which can lead to dry and frizzy hair. I'd try switching to something without it. Good luck!

    Did you wash with a sulfate shampoo first too? You need to do that to get any silicones out of your hair before you start your co-washing. You also need to give your hair time to recover. Do some deep treatments.

    Also don't scrub your scalp so hard! I think people might rub harder because you don't get a lather. Sort of roll the scalp with your fingers rather than scrub. I found that helped with hair loss.
