Since I've gotten older and don't need it around my face visually weighing it down, I wear it up or half up quite a bit, but I'm very careful about allowing any tension there. However, my hair very definitely naturally parts right there anyway, and no matter how careful I am, even when I don't wear it up, I'm sure I get some breakage at that spot because of it. It's also quite a bit finer textured since I've gotten older which makes it more fragile.

But there's also a definite thinning there. I first noticed that after a daily med I had to start taking a few years ago - that, hormones, and everything else contributes a bit. Fortunately it's still thick enough and curly enough that no one notices except me.
