Hey! That's pretty much what happened to my edges too. Right above my temple area the new growth coming in was rough, frizzy and wouldn't hold a curl pattern like the rest of my head. So since it was a kind of thin area anyway, I just cut it really close to my scalp and so far it hasn't given me any more trouble. I'm not sure if it was scab hair or heat damage (I suspect this one) but cutting it and letting that patch grow again seemed to help.

it could be that you just have two different differents. I'm not sure how much you use heat, but it could be the different textures you have. May hair is mostly wavy, but I had 3 different textures in my hair.

Good luck and don't give up!

I don't really have any suggestions on what products to use for transitioning, I used pantene pro v relaxed and natural and motions, if I could go back in time though, I wouldn't have used those, lol.

I would recommend not using too much heat and not cutting your hair yet. You could possibly have a different texture in that area. Plus when your hair is finally cut it's going to take on a different texture anyway. My nape area was frizzy as hell when I was transitioning and I wasn't sure what the heck hair type I was back there. Little did I know it was just the relaxed ends and my nape area is actually the less frizzy part of my entire head LOL who knew

Use alot of conditioner, can't say that enough
If you're going to use heat anyway, make sure to deep condition first and then use a heat protectant spray on your hair. Be careful with putting too much heat on your roots. Good luck!
