The hair in the middle of my head is not growing

It's either growing slow or stopped growing, I don't know. I rarely put my hair in pony tails so I know it couldn't be that, and I had this problem when I had relaxed hair. What do you think the reason is behind this and how can I make it grow with the rest of my hair again?

are you sure or could it just be that the area is a tighter curl pattern?

What do you consider the middle of your head? The canopy or the back of the head?

1. Wearing a style or hair accesory repeatedly in or on that section, but you say you don't do that.

2. That patch of hair is just very fragile, this is supported by the fact that it was happening when you were relaxed as well. Give it extra attention and care during your routine. ie like making sure to seal the ends on that section to avoid breakage.

3. Sleeping on that section. This can be helped by braiding that section before going to bed (actually braiding all your hair is best). Also wear a satin cap.

4. Wear some protective styles for awhile. If hair still hasn't grown while under braids or weave than that section of hair has just reached the end of it's growing cycle.

~april-epiphany: That patch is like the rest of my hair, I checked that theory just in case.

KinkyKeeper: I think the area I'm talking about is the canopy. I think my hair your #2's fragile. I'm going to take your advice.

Yeah, the canopy of our hair is notoriously fragile. It gets exposed to the elements the most (sun, rain, etc). I believe I read somewhere (it may have been Curly Girl book) that the bang area may never grow very long, it has a shorter growing period than the rest of the hair. Perhaps some quirk of evolution.

TwoMoons,
I have the same issue and it was the problem when I was relaxed and that alone led to a big chop. In my case that particular spot is not only shorter but is a tighter wiry texture. it might be 2 inches shorter than hair around it with some sections even shorter. It does seem fragile so I don't bother it much (in actuality I don't bother any of it much) It drinks up whatever I put on it. Like everyone says--baby it and it will do what it does. I don't know if mine will "catch up" without the rest of it being trimmed to allow it to do that. I'm not planning on doing that at this time.
My hair has always been significantly shorter in the middle than anywhere else. No itching or irritation with the scalp. Just hair that seems to never grow regardless of how many times I chop all of my hair off to make it even..I do sleep on this area but wasn't sure if that has anything to do with it. It literally looks like i am going bald in this pic but its just extremely shorter and thiner. PLEASE HELP!!
P.s. not sure why the pic is upside down..tried to fix it

You might consider a hair analysis from Goosefootprints on Etsy or Komaza Care, they can compare the crown/ canopy to the rest of your hair undr the microscope if you label your samples separately.

Stop chopping your hair off to make it even. I have shorter hair in the front and I noticed that it is growing but slow than the rest but I learned that you have to have patience and trying to make it even will not work..some people have uneven hair they just grow it out...you need a protective style for a while and make sure you are moisturizing your hair..

Good luck!
