I am Black. I hate going to the salon. I only go when I really need to. I can not braid. I always I had bad experiences with Black women doing my hair either they want to cut or rip it out. That is why I do not to get my hair done. My hair has always been longer when a man did it. I got my hair braided yesterday and the stylist just it out when blowing drying. I had a lot of breakage. I do not get that much when doing my own hair. I always had this problem with women. She said it shedding its not when most of my hair is broken short pieces. And she said it will grow back. OMG. Has anyone ever had this problem? White, Asian, or just women in general? advice...I am sad.

This has only happened a couple of times. Once when I got my hair braided for the first and last time. The lady wasn't combing the tangles from my hair, she was ripping it out. I don't even have very coarse hair so I can only imagine how it would be for someone with very kinky hair.
Then another time I went into a salon to get trimmed and get straightened and not only did they trim way more hair than they needed too but they also weighed down my hair with a lot of oily hair products. Keep in mind that I have very spongy back length natural hair so they must have really used a lot to make my hair that weighed down.
I think it just comes from years and years of not knowing proper hair care. Whenever my aunt visits she always says my hair looks dry and that I need some grease, meanwhile her hair greasy with no movement and broken off at chin length.
Next time you might want to go to a somewhat of an upscale salon. A lot of these old school stylists need to go back to beauty school.1
