Patch of dry hair @ Crown
Hello everyone! I have this patch of hair on my crown that gets very poofy and dry, and the rest of my hair is okay. I am a 3C with a small amount of 4a at my hairline and the nape of my neck, and I have medium/coarse hair. I have read a lot of you have this problem too, and it's due to too much protein in that section. I was just wondering how you all manage it. If I stop using protein and use moisture only, that patch gets better, but then I get greasy roots, and my hair becomes limp and lifeless
. But if I use a small amount of amino acids which my hair loves, then that patch gets dry, poofy, and frizzy. What do you guys do for this problem?
-Mostly 3C with some 4A.
