My daughter has this same exact hair except not protein sensitive and high density not medium. She also used to have this problem. The only things I do different now are use raspberry oil specifically on her crown area (this is a natural sun protectant oil), I am WAY more careful with her crown area and I had to STOP treating it like the rest of her hair. The crown is one of the most sensitive areas as far as hair goes seeing as it's prone to sun damage, and to be neglected since its right in the middle. We usually wash it the same as our other hair and part/ section it off into other sections a lot. But I learned (also on myself) that it's really beneficial to use the same products just doing your crown separately. Our crowns now get their own sections when styling, pineappling, deep conditioning, and anything else lol. I also used Jamacian black castor oil on that area to help it grow back faster.I wouldnt stop using the products youre using now. Just change technique.
