We often hear about it in men (sorry, guys) but hair loss for curly girls is a real and serious issue. There are many factors that can play into your hair loss, such as genetics, pregnancy and stress. Your hair also follows its own natural cycle of the anagen, catagen and telogen phases but there are other things that can play a part in hair loss.
Diet: You are what you eat. For the sake of your curls, consider a diet rich in protein. Without enough protein, your curls can become finer, weaker and more prone to damage. This doesn't mean you should eat just protein. Make sure to include lots of healthy fruits and veggies in your diet.
Digestion: Your healthy diet will do your curls no good if the nutrients aren't be absorbed. Consider adding supplements to aid with your digestion. If you are already living with a digestion condition, such as IBS, work with a healthcare provide to ensure your symptoms are under control. Similarly, work on reducing stress, which can directly effect your digestion.
Stimulate: Massaging your scalp while showering will encourage your hair follicles by getting blood to move through your scalp. Healthy blood flow is essential for growing healthy curls. You can also achieve this by hanging your head upside down and massage your curls at your scalp.
