Default One spot if frizz

Hello curlies

I was wondering if anyone could offer assistance. On the front left side of my hair I have one very dry and frizzy spot. I'm not sure why it's like that, but it has always been that way. The problem is now that in wearing my hair natural it looks a hot mess. I have been trying to hide it by parting it the other direction. Any tips? I use KKCC but that won't get the piece to slick down.

THANKS!!

Maybe try upping your moisture level on that spot. Some people say adding honey to your conditioner decrease frizz and adds moisture.

No problem! You can also try adding various oils to the conditioner too. it sounds like you need to focus on that part when you moisturize.

I have the exact same thing. My hair does not frizz except for this tiny 1"x1" spot on the front left side. I've noticed after acv rinses it curls up beautifully with the rest of my hair but w/o the rinses it does its own thing. Don't get it. Oh and DC treatments also help but nothing like acv.

ETA Also I should mention that this spot is where my hair used to always break off when I wore relaxers. I'd have to keep it cut short and slick it down which was weird because I always had longish apl-mbl hair. As a natural it doesn't breakoff though! So I don't mind the frizziness at all.

On my EVO

I have the same at the back of my head. Adding extra moisture to it has helped & that spot is a lot less dry & frizzy

Like prev poster, once I do an ACV rinse (or even just V rinse) that spot curls up nicely with the rest of my hair.

So maybe give that a go...

I have that spot too... I really try to make sure I hit that spot with more moisture. I tried doing a ACV rinse, but it made my hair stringy. I did 1:4 mix, but I think I may need to try 1 tsp: 1 cup of water. Maybe that would work?

Anybody know why ACV at high concentrations works for some, but not for others?

Maybe their hairs' pH levels are different to yr own hair's pH levels so they're able to achieve good results with a higher concentration.

The ratio that I use is 1tbsn to 1cup.

I'm going to try just using vinegar instead of apple cider agn. I've used vinegar before & the results were much better.

I have dark dark brown, almost black hair with one lonely natural blonde-brown highlight on the left side of my head, above and behind my ear. My dads side of the family are all blondes so I got it from them. That highlight is my extra frizzy spot, like you ladies are talking about. Is anyone else's "spot" also a natural highlight?

I definitely have the same problem in what I like to call the four corners of my head. Both front sides and back sides have major frizz. I either finger twist those pieces with gel or wait for then to dry and use my really really narrow curling wand to reshape.

I have a similar issue. I normally two strand twist that section and tuck it away for wng's. When it's dry, i add a heavy butter or cream and try to blend it in with the rest of my hair.

Thanks for the styling tips. Conditioning has helped some, so I'll try twisting and see where that goes.
