Battle Becca

My hair is breaking off.

I'm losing bits of hair all the time. I know it's normal to lose some hair. But what's coming off my head every time I twist, palm roll, wash, or even just shake my head around, is little kinky bits of crispy hair between 1/4 and 1 1/2 inches long. They look remarkably pubic, actually. Except for the fact that some of them are purple. Er, anyway. Nice imagery. Sorry. Anyway, so I've been putting jojoba oil on them, and it hasn't been doing much. I stopped with the tea tree cause it was too strong smelling, but I could go back to that if that would help. Any reccomendations? Is this normal? Is all my hair going to fall out? Should I be freaking out and shaving my head? I'm wondering if a hot oil treatment would help.. I know conditioner is a big no-no, and I don't want my dreads to unravel, but I also don't want my hair to all break off.
