Over time your hair naturally sheds from your scalp and is replaced by new hair. If it is braided up tightly then the shed hairs, which would have fallen out over time, have nowhere to go, so have remained in the braid. Now that you have removed the braids and washed your hair, all that hair is coming out at once. I know it looks scary but don´t worry, it is natural.
