Some naturals get breakage and shedding confused. When they comb through their hair and see hair coming out, they automatically assume that their hair is breaking off. We’re here to let you know that there is a MAJOR difference between shedding and breakage. Just because you see hair coming out doesn’t mean your hair is breaking.
What is shedding?
Hair shedding is completely natural and normal! Everyday, you shed between 50-100 hairs. That’s why whenever you comb through your hair, you’ll see a few hairs come out. Shedding does not equal breakage because healthy hair sheds everyday. However, it is possible to experience excessive shedding if you do not have a well-balanced diet or you stress out a lot. Self-care is key, everything starts with you first!

What is breakage?
Hair breakage is when the ends are breaking off, no length is being retained, and there’s a lot of frizz because the hair is simply unhealthy. No matter how little you manipulate your hair, it’s still breaking off. Breakage is obviously not normal; breakage occurs when you aren’t properly styling or caring for your hair and your hair is damaged.
