Default Weak Spots

Hello ladies I have a question and I'm hoping you could give me some tips. I'm natural but ever since I was a child I have always had this one weak spot. It is the most fragile and prone to breakage area on my head. It grows but is nowhere near as full as the rest of my hair. My hair was doing great and just last week it broke off again. I am so hurt and discouraged. So if you know of any remedies or products I would so appreciate the advice.

Castor is recommended for thickening the hair in weak areas. Try applying it a few times a week.

this

you can also try other ayurveda hair pastes to thicken your hair. Amla, brahmi, and maka are all really good hair thickeners.

Ekua is a member here. She is the owner of http://www.ayurnaturalbeauty.com/. I'm sure she'd be willing to make recommendations for you if send her a personal message.

you can order online, Ekua has a store, Kinky Rhonnie just gave you the web address. If you'd rather get them on the ground then just do a google search for indian/pakistani grocery stores in your area. A lot of stores, in my area anyway, do not carry maka. A lot of them have never heard of it but they usually always have Amla and Brahmi in stock.
