I love the animated video. great helpful info, I needed to see this. Lately I have been experiencing soreness and hair loss at my crown, and assumed it was from a bad blowout ( that's one part ) , but the blowout was like a year ago, and the soreness has continue on and off and the thinning at the crown. I thought it was old age pattern baldness, but I don't see any men or women in my family that suffers from crown balding. This video will help me be more mindful of the tension I put on my crown area.
Sadly this started for me some eleven years ago after I cut my locs out of my head. The bald spot has only gotten bigger in the middle of my head and lord do I ever hate combing that area...Especially to detangle after shampooing! I don't get braids because the pain from the scalp sensitivity was unbearable! I'd cry like a baby and I'm in my 30's! No matter was I use or how much water I drink, my breakage is crazy. My hair is about to my shoulders now but my crown is damaged and balding. I know I should probably shave my hair off but am so self conscious about my bald spot. I don't think there's any hope for me at this point.
I treat my center different. I put it in its own section. I pulled my hair and it still hurts but not as much. It's a scar and I feel no matter what there will always be a spot. I have nice hair and try keep it up and braid a circle so my crown can grow. I manipulate my hair and it feels good with grease.
My hair was relaxed for about 3 1/2 years and then one day as I was checking my new growth I noticed only new growth i the middle of my scalp. My already thin relaxed hair had started dropping. Well I never did relax my hair again, I let it grow out, put in weave and braids until it as at a length that I was comfortable cutting off all straight hair and starting over. After my short strait hair journey I am happy to be natural again. In the last 5 years that I've been natural again, I've texturized, bleached, coloured and even homemade lightener and hair has never been stronger.
Thanks so much 4 this video, I thought I was the only person on the planet w/this issue. I call that area 'my heritage' hair because all of a sudden it just changed. Became super coarse & resistant to moisture, combing, straightening or cooperating with any hairdo I tried. It was like nope I got my own thang...lol. My scalp became too tender to touch at all & the hair just started breaking so it was just a tiny wild fro in the top of my head. I looked a hot mess & I got depressed because I have very long, fine wavy hair everywhere else so it was very hard to hide. So I resorted to intense moisturizing, black castor oil & PRAYER!!! Wigs & ponytails were my life for 1 year to grow it back. It's still resistant & very sensitive to strain or stress, it will get super sore but at least it's not bald! Thanks for this post!!!
Wow this is the first video I've found that addresses exactly what I've experienced. Left under that hair dryer, I remember lifting it up off my head it was so hot. Years later I remember going for a power walk in the sun and my scalp felt like it was on fire. And then last year I could see my scalp. I changed my diet and it's better. BUT this is the first video to intelligently address this issue. Thank you.
However, I guess the crown area will NEVER grow back to it's full potential even when one waters and moisturize that thinning or bare area 🤔
Currently my situation is what this video has spoken on. With the cold weather behind us, No hats, caps, scarves for me. Oiling my crown has become a daily/nightly regiment, though I believe I might be overdoing it. I've even resorted to DermaRolling (after watching other Sistahs 'swear' by positive results)
I'm really contemplating shaving off my hair. BUT Before I do, is there any True Realistic method to assist in growing back ANY hair to the crown???
Note: I keep my hair cut short not because of the thinning, But for the fact, I ♡ it short 😊
Just realized the thinness a few months ago (SMDH)
Great Video! Also pumkin seed oil and biotin pills helps. It stops the inflammation from the inside out. I have delt with this problem for years and have created Organic Hair Growth Oil as a result. Check out my channel for more information.
I'm white, so I don't have tight curls, but my head hurts to bad when I try to detangle it, my bang area is so full and moisturized, detangle it in a few seconds, but my crown 😓😖 I thought I was the only one, can someone tell me if coconut and castor oils are gonna help me with the soreness and dryness of that part? And it seems like I have to torture that part to even curl a bit, and I have absolutely NO volume on that area, what's happening with my hair? 😞 and can I deep condition with coconut and castor oil? I have no other choice because in my country we don't have quality products for natural hair, so there are no deep condition products, what can I do to help my hair?
Romy Damons Thank you, since my comment I started to deep condition every week with DIY deep conditioners, and it actually seems to me that my crown area doesn't hurt so much like before, is it possible that my hair got better in two or three weeks?
I appreciate the info about the crown part of our head. I wore too many pony tails with the combs in them not knowing that they were damaging my scalp.I did not know how to get my hair back. So thanks for clearing that up.
For everyone who has watched this video there is no cure for ccca and there is also no definite reason as to why you get it. The important thing is to get diagnosed and treated because it does not suddenly just stop on its own. If you want to stop hair loss and possibly try to regrow it try Rogaine and a prescription topical steroid. I have been treated for this and NO special shampoo or diy mixture or vitamins or scalp massage or oiling your scalp will sort this out.
Botin and Pumpkin seed oil is the cure. I tried it for a week and honestly I swear I see hair.
I had hair lost of 10 YEARS and this is the only thing that gave back hope because I relized I lacked Iron and vitamins in my diet.
Also, this African-American woman cracked a code to hair loss she is saving so many people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xDFFgOxf4A
I have found that spritzing my scalp with an asprin solution has more or less eliminated my sore itchy, thinning crown area. It is amazing stuff. My scalp is back to normal and my thinning crown area has grown back looking healthy and thick. It is amazing 😊
I know this is important and not a funny matter, as I too clicked on this video curious about growing out my crown but the animation with the lady sitting under the hair dryer was cracking me up @ 2:45-3:00 anyone else find that funny? It's hard to speak up and tell professionals because they often have this "i know what i'm doing" type attitude. This isn't just in the hair industry, it's in health care, the restuarant industry, automotive etc. I hate that. I feel like whatever happened to the customer is always right. Atleast if you adjust the temp or pull me out ealier than the desired time I can blame myself for any undesired results
All i did was rub 100% pure coconut virgin oil where the patch was and my hair grew back in 3 weeks no word of lie people, thats all i did, washed my hair every 2 days, and immediately after washing i rubbed the coconut oil in my hair but i rubbed it in daily - thats it! I tried all sorts of stuff and nothing worked, i drink lots of water, avoid processed ready made food completely as well as candy not a fan of sweets rarely eat them and i dont eat pork at all - im a 26 year old young man west indian heritage - hope this helps
I have an super itchy scalp. Also I have a couple of bumps or sores and my hair is breaking. This itching kind of comes and goes. When it goes the hair grows back. My itching now is right down the middle of my head from front to nape. Still just breaks in crown. Was growing then started itching and breaking again within the last month. Is this medical? Do I need to see a dermatologist? I'm aggravated!!! I do take 2 blood pressure meds, are they causing this? Please help!!!!!!
I'm glad I found this channel cause I have had problems with my crown since I returned natural. Thank goodness my hair has started to grow back slowly and the soreness and itchness had ceased alot. Thank you for all that you do you are much appreciated.
So I when to a salon got a perm like 2014 my hair really very damage I have high porosity it like u can see my scalp I deep condition it n put grease in my hair next morning it dry in some spot it itch n some soreness n I got bald spots everywhere my hair was never like this until I got it perm
Thanks for the video. About 6 months ago, I was wondering why my crown was feeling sore and I noticed that the hairs there were shorter/broken. I came to the conclusion by trial and error that the problem was that I had been putting my hair in what I thought was a loose bun on the crown area to sleep. The problem was that as my hair grew longer, there was gradually more pressure being put on that area. Now I put my hair into multiple plaits or buns and vary the parts. I think it's getting better, but I would have been quicker to act had I found your video first.
P.S. You have a nice microscope. Are you a Pathologist?
My texture at my crown is cray cray. Like throwed to the fullest. The scalp area is the most sensitive. It dries the slowest as well. But it is usually the longest part of my hair and I have a tiny section that’s broken but mostly the hair there seems to be thriving just sensitive and odd textured.
I couldnt figure out what was wrong with my hair. I thought I had folliculitis but really, its CCCA. I have all the symptoms too. The burning and itching and roughness from the breakage in that section brought on trichotillomania, where I pull my hair out. It got so bad that I barely feel the strands come out, or a slight tug and the hairs come out.
I am "Tender headed" got a Sew in done on Monday. the crown of my head started hurting so bad to the point where I had to take it down. The crown of my head is still hurting it's been 6 days I don't know what to do. Do you think my crown is so Tender from the tightness of the briads or I might have a slight headache?
Thank you sooo much for both parts of this video. I saw your post on Instagram referring to this video. This is exactly what I'm going through. My dermatologist says I have no scarring so I'll follow your instructions. I don't see a video for the difference between the Greenhouse Effect, Steamers, and Hooded Dryers.
Great video I can always tell the difference in my crown section I'll be definitely trying these solutions my go to style is finger coiling which I leave in for a week but when it comes to styling my hair crown feels different than the rest of my hair. I'll be working hard on it now
OMG I posted a video today about a breakage in my crown area!!! I'm glad to see that I'm in the early stage and I can still have time to reverse the damage! Thank you for posting and your voice is so relaxing!
