If the strands have white bulbs on them, then they are only shed hairs, so dont worry about it. If not, then its breakage and you may need to do either a protein or moisture treatment to correct the problem.

You said 10-15 breakage and shed hairs. The shedded hairs a normal...the breakage hairs are of concern.
 
You may be overloading yourself with either too much protein or moisture. Do a assessment on your hair to be sure which it is since you said your products contain moisture and protein.
 
 Oh yeah breakage can come from demarcation point of the two textures since you are 8 weeks post. Protein is needed as well as moisture but in balance. But don't overstretch your hair some ppl can't stretch long. Just listen to your hair.
 
Visit the stick under Hair Breakage for the assessment

So NO amount of breakage is normal?
 
I recently separated, strand by strand, the hair that came out in my combing the other day. (this was after 4 days of no manipulation
 
I had about 12 shed hairs (with with bulbs) and about the same of broken strands.
 
What I did notice though is that most if not all of the broken hairs were hairs that had been colour treated.

all of us would like for our hair not to break at all, but thats highly improbable. The aim is to have as little breakage as possible, by making sure your hair is properly maintained.
 
The fact of the matter is, relaxed hair will almost always have some degree of breakage, because the composition of the hair has been severely compromised by the chemicals in the relaxer, leaving the hair fragile and more prone to damage, dryness and breakage.
 
However, I cant imagine that there is any hair, relaxed or not, that doesnt break at some point ---even if its 2 hairs.Smile

Hey guys, I can't post any topics so I thought I would ask here. My edges have completely fallen out and I have no idea what to do.  I've tried not moisturizing my scalp and only the hairm and then moisturing both the scalp and hair.  I've tried protein, now I am trying moisture products.  I am just so frustrated and seeing the breakage just makes me want to cry because I can only wear my hair parted a certain way so no one can see the edges.  Can anyone suggest something for me?
