Crazy Hairline Texture

I do not know what to do with my hairline. It is about 50% thicker and coarser than the rest of my hair. Also, it eats up moisture, therefore I am not able to keep it moisturized. So, I made the mistake of chopping all of the relaxed hair off of my hairline. Before, the relaxed pieces were sticking up everywhere and I could not smooth my hair back into a ponytail. Out of frustration I just chopped the relaxed hair off. It was pretty short anyway and it had previously been singed with a hot comb. Could this be the cause of the distinct texture difference in the front hair line and the rest of my hair. The chop has made it easier to flatten with a headband. But I need some other styles that do not depend upon a headband. I am not sure how to properly blend it with the rest of my hair. Any suggestions? Any product suggestions that will help soften this hair? Any product suggestions to help speed the growth and recovery of my hairline and scalp.

You hair looks great. It sounds like you have one of my same issues. My hairline is ridiculous. The hair directly behind it waves nicely. Sorry, I digress. I sometimes do a braid that covers 2/3 of my hairline. It's not b/c I think it's cute. There's a pic of it is on my fotki. I sometimes part my hair. That kind of takes my attention away from the flaw. When I'm wearing a puff, I wrap a scarf around my head after I'm done styling. The scarf comes off before I leave the house. That's usually enough time to make it lay on it's own. I try to tell myself that I'm the only one who sees it, not that it makes me feel any better about it. I've been trying to baby that hair more so that it doesn't break off w/ me trying to manipulate. Henna helps for the first 3 or 4 days. HTH

It is good to know that I am not alone. My hair behind my hairline is a combination of wavy spiral curls and curly corkscrews. I just wish the stupid hairline would blend more. I have tried all types of products on it and nothing helps. So, I have resorted to headbands and headwraps to cover the mess. I am going to try the henna tip.

I have the same problem! And it drives me crazy. Its a small section of hair in the front that sticks up.

What I have noticed is that the longer that stubborn section gets the easier it is to manage. I find that the only gel that can get it slick as hell is EcoStyler.

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to hear.

Right now, I am trying to blend it in with gel (currently using Qhemet Biologics Honeybush Hair Gel). Slicking the hair back has been the best solution for me. Thanks for the reassurance. I am glad that it will get better with more length.
