I took my sew in out about a week and a half ago. I carefully detangled, dc'd, etc. like I always do after a sew in. My hair came out in CLUMPS! I did not do anything different with my install or after. I've been keeping it in loose twists because I'm afraid to do anything with it. When i take the twists out, I lose more hair. Part of me wants to think that I'm experiencing breakage because I'm about 18 weeks post relaxer (except my perimeter). 

I'm thinking of doing a protein treatment, but I am afraid to do anything. 

TIA!

You need to do a hardcore protein like apoghee two step remember to follow it up with a moisturizing conditioner.  That will stop your breaking and shedding, while you get to the root of what caused it.  I always apply a protein treatment before I get a sew in and right after take down.  maybe your hair is too fragile for a sew

Give your hair a break from sew ins while you focus on the health of your hair.  Focus on strengthening your strands before you add additional hair. Don't ignore your real hair just because its in a sew in.  work on developing a sew in regimen to nourish your hair while in a weave

I did a protein treatment before the install, but had not done a follow up treatment yet. I always care for my hair and have developed a good regimen over the years for both sew ins and regular care. 

I always use ORS protein treatment, do you think that Aphogee would be better?

i think its because of how long youve gone without a relaxer...when i transitioned it got to a point where my hair was popping off when i combed it. Either cut of the relaxed ends and embrace natural or go get a relaxer and a cut
