Question Line of frizz where hair hits forehead....anyone?

Hi everyone,
I've got a question for you all. I'm a 3c, and I've had this forehead frizz problem since I was a little kid.

My hair has always been long, except for this little line of frizz where my hair meets my forehead. These hairs are much lighter than the rest of my dark hair, and won't seem to grow past 6ish inches. They also look horribly damaged, and all of them have split ends. They're the first to dry, don't take well to gels, and are a total pain.


I know it's totally normal to have some flyaways, but whenever I pull my hair back, I have this line of frizzy light hairs going from my forehead back behind my ears! It's quite noticeable, at least to me. They always come loose when it's windy, and they drive me nuts!

Anyone have these, and if so, what do you do to deal with them!???

I'll try to get some pictures of them soon.

You can see them there on the very left, next to the regular hair that behaves.



The awful light brown stripe I get when I pull my hair back.


I wish I could just pull them out...but I know they'll grow back.

Default halo

that would be the infamous halo. happens a lot to people who wear their hair tied up too much. that area is sensitive and breaks easily. try wearing your hair down, especially when sleeping (use a sleep bonnet to keep all the hair out of your way).

also it could mean that area is just a totally different texture with different needs. that's the problem with my nape area, i have to use heavier product there than any where else.

try using a heavier leave in in that area only or baggying just that area.

anyone else wanna chime in? there's always a million and one helpful tips here

Wow your hair looks so much like mine! I have the exact same issue! And to make matters worse that hair is lighter than the rest so it really shows! I am afraid I don't have any advice because I haven't figured out how to get rid of mine, although I"ve found twisting it with my fingers with product helps disguise its fuzzy ways.

That area looks like it needs more moisture and emollients than any other part of your hair.

My hair has that, except mine don't get that long. They get about two or three inches long, ever. When my hair is down, it's not a big deal because I can tuck it under the rest of my hair. I have to do that when I wear it up, except it likes to come out. :/

wow! my t3 son has a quarter-size blondish coarse patch on the top of his head. It stands out because his hair is dark brown. It behaves fairly well (but it feels different, almost like grey hairs) and his hair is relatively short so it's not a huge thing.

...Have you tried a gentle color, maybe it'll blend in more?

It's tricky since you've said it's frizzier, a strong dye might dry it out. Have stylists recommended anything for it?

I can tell ds that he's not alone.

Yeah, when I wear my hair down, it's not such a big deal, because I just tuck those strands behind my ears and no one can tell.

But I keep seeing all these curlies around with super cute hairstyles, where they pull some hair back on top, without parting their hair. And I'm always like "I can't wait to try that!" and then I do and it looks awful, because of these frizzy light hairs.

It does seem like they're growing longer, now that I've found NC and started a healthier routine. Maybe I'm on the right track?

ITA w/ SBB. Many people have fine, fragile hair at their front hairline. I would just add more moisture and leave a little conditioner and maybe some almond or grapeseed oil in. It should improve after 3-6 months. Also, when you to pull that section back, make sure to be gentle.

When I was younger I had a fro all around the edges of my hair that never wanted to cooperate. They always came out of my pony tail and I just looked a mess... One way my mom helped to "hide" it was by doing a think cornrow in the front of my hair or doing a flat twist in the front. Or for a more laid back look you could just do a single braid and swoop it into the ponytail like they do on the hills... I hope I was descriptive enough...

I have this same issue....all i can offer is to use more moisturizing conditioners and styling products on that area. Like SBB said, rich in emolients. If you have to, moisturize it a couple of times of day when it starts to get dry.
Mine has definitely improved.

Gee, I thought it was just me!
I have this frizz-patch in the front that covers my beautiful waves. Since I'm transitioning I usually wear a ponytail, can't twist/braid-out at all.

I will try all the suggestions and hope for the best.

I too have this problem. I noticed that the fuzz piece appeared 6 months ago. Prior to that, that section was normal....like my other 3c hair. I do wear my hair pulled back or in a ponytail alot and I don't put a lot of moisture on that section, so I will try the moisture advice. Thanks

a good way to fix that is to twist the flyaways with product while your hair is still wet and letting it airdry. sometimes when i get that problem i just pull the frizzes together and go at them with an iron.
