Topic: Is Shampooing Too Much Harmful?
Hi, I'm new to Morrocco Method, or any natural hair care for that matter. My brief hair history is that I'm a 24-year-old woman whose hair is shedding. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS, and in a panic I went on birth control pills for 2 months in an attempt to regulate my hormones. I stopped the BCP a couple months ago. A month ago, I began using MM exclusively for my hair products because I'd really not like to be bald at age 24, and also because I believe in organic and natural products. My hair is continuing to shed even now, which concerns me. I'll still keeping using MM, though, because one month isn't that long of a time see a lot of results. Did everyone else's hair stop shedding after using MM for one month, or does everyone have varying results?
Also, I have another issue. My hair is naturally very dry, and I think under normal circumstances I would only shampoo it once every couple of days. However, the place where I work at 6 days a week uses vegetable oil and lard extensively, and these things saturate my hair by the time my shift is over. Therefore, I'm forced to wash my hair after every shift (like I said, 6 days a week). Could washing my hair too much be harmful to it? Could that be one of the reasons my hair is still shedding?
Thanks in advance!
