  • Do you color your hair? My hair broke off when I had been coloring it. I had to go get the color stripped out and I bought really good shampoo and conditioner and just worked on getting it healthy again. As for the cornrows, I had a friend who had beautiful hair, till she did cornrows, then her hair got all thin and broke off. She gave up on the cornrows.

  • The cornrows are probably pulling on your hair (especially when you're asleep and toss and turn) and its slowly breaking it off. I would probably have to say to lose the corn rows hun. This is a pretty common problem. Even pony tails do this to women really often.

  • My hair began breaking off LONG before the cornrows. I had just gotten a perm when my hair began breaking.I never colored my hair. What kind of shampoo should I get?(answering both GMR AND usbornbooksdh)
