One of CurlyNikki’s post-partum hair balls

Dear Fellow Natural Divas:

Curl to curl, how much hair in the shower is too much? I BC’d in January and have a nice mini fro of about 3in (when curly). I Co-wash and stretch my curls 2-3 times a week tops, and wash and deep condition (Olive Oil brand deep conditioner, ½ tsp honey, ½ tsp olive oil, wrap my hair in a very warm, soaked towel and sit for 30 min) every Saturday. I am loving my hair more than I can ever remember but there’s one problem: I have very fine hair and it scares me to see so much hair going down the drain after detangling. I use Tresemme Naturals for detangling, and typically comb through with ease, but there is always a nice clump of hair to toss. I’m probably being over cautious, especially since my hair doesn’t seem to be thinning. I know we typically lose 60-100 strands a day, but how do I know If I should worry?

How much hair do you lose? When do you notice the most hair?
