Girl, all I heard was you had your hair straightened for about a week and I'm wondering.... where da pitchas at? Cry
 
The falling hair is probably a bit of the relaxed hair breaking at the line of demarcation.  That's not unusual.  How far are you in your transition?

Checking in. Nothing special at all. Washed & conditioned, then air dryed & put up in a bun. I want to start the sulfur mix, but I'm waiting for it to get colder so the smell won't be so strong.

I actually got the sulfur mixture from Njoy. Which is sublimed sulfur (try amazon or your local drugstore) and black Jamaican Castor Oil. I have an color application bottle with the marks on the side & I put about a 1 10th of the powder at the bottom, then fill the rest of the bottle with the castor oil. I believe NJoy has better directions. I did have a slight reaction at first, so I would suggest using very little of the sulfur until you see how you tolerate it.
 
Good luck!
 
Actually I just looked and NJoy has her recipe in her siggy...LOL
 
I copied the link here (hope you don't mind NJoy)

Moisture and low manipulation are key.  I know that at some point during my transition, any time I flat ironed, I would get breakage. Even with heat protectant.  The line of demarcation just couldn't handle it well.
 
Besides having my hair prone to tangling, it was the thinning hemline that pushed me over into BC.  I was like, "what am I trying to save?" The contrast between the thickness and my thinning hemline just made my hair look crazy to me.  So, by the time I chopped, I was in love with my thickness and the stress-free maintenance.

I ordered a steamer a few months ago to help with the moisture, and it did...in the beginning.  But I think I went overbored.  Because my hair became mushy and dry, and started tangling even more.  I am going back to regular deep conditioning under a regular dryer.  But be cautioned ladies, steaming is addictive and it can hurt your hair if you do it too much. I had to physically hide my steamer in a closet, I was compulsively steaming my hair  LOL

I want to do the low manipulation.  I plan on buying a wig this weekend, cornrowing my hair and keeping them in for at least 2 months.  I went to the BSS a few day ago but I could not find any decent wigs.  They all looked very plastic.  X_X so, as soon as I can find a decent wig, I will be wigging it up until it reaches my butt. 

My ends are thinner than my roots, but this time around when I flat ironed, they didnt look so bad.  The last inch could stand to go but I am going to try to hold on for a while.  lol i know its bad, but my hair has never been this long and I wanna hold on to this for a while.  Embarrassed  Plus I only have a few inches of virgin hair...the rest is either texlaxed (that part is not thinning yet) the last few inches were from my bonelaxing days and are the thinnest part.

what heat protectant do you use?  anyone else with suggestions please do chime in.  I do not use heat often, I only use it when I feel I have no other resort to combat tangles (my hair formed webs this time around and took days of detangling).  I need to protect my hair more during the times I do use heat.
