    Maybe it's just her hair shedding. Having twists in the hair will not allow the naturally shedded hair to shed out. So when it's time to take the twist down, there will be three months worth of shed hair that needs to come out. Hair sheds on average about 50 to 100 hairs a day so imagine what 3 months will leave you with.

    If her hair indeed was falling out maybe the twists were too tight.

    Having twist for three months is a long time. On an average hair sheds100 up to 500 hairs a day. Being twisted up for three months the hair is just ...well twisted up. When you take them out you have all the old hair that is finally, FREE. Also twisting the hair caused tention on the scalp and could cause the follicle to be pulled out with the hair, and may not be able to grow back. Hair should be combed or brushed at least twice a day. this helps remove old hair that is shedding and add natural oils throughout the hair.
