I am having a hair crisis! Help? :(

It has grown A LOT since DD was born. It has grown 8 inches this year. It's down to the bottom of my shoulder blade, and it has been matting up BAD. This has been gong on for 2 months now. I wake up with dread locks. When I try to brush or detangle them out, my hair just falls out. I just lost so much hair trying to manage it in the shower. I cried.:(
I have tried coconut oil and keratin oil. I bought a $30 twice a week hair mask by "It's A 10", recommended by my hairstylist friend
I have been using it 3 weeks and it has only gotten worse. What to do..

I don't seem to get any buildup. I will wash it with shampoo maybe every 2 weeks or so but I'm only washing my hair ever 2-4 days anyway. 

Quoting Anonymous:

You don't wash with shampoo? Doesn't the conditioner build up in your hair?

Quoting Ali32:

I have curly hair and this is what I do. Maybe it will work for you.

I co-wash, meaning I "wash" my hair with conditioner, not shampoo.

I only detangle it when it is wet and I use a lot of leave in conditioner and a wide tooth comb.

I never brush it.

At night I will put it in a high ponytail or sometimes use a silk bonnet to keep it from getting matted up. Braiding can also help.

Hope that helps. 



Quoting worstofweather:

Yes. Very thick and wavy, with a few curls here and there.





Quoting thejodigirl:

Is your hair curly?
