The mistake you made that caused your hair to fall out was mixing the chemicals. Using peroxide to color your hair and then adding relaxer was what caused your hair to fall out. You should see a hairstylist to see if you can salvage your hair.

You should wait at least 6 weeks between chemical processes, Never do them together..
