CROWN SECTION soreness, thinning & breakage CULPRITS & SOLUTIONS (part 1 of 2)

This video, created by GreenBeauty on YouTube, is very helpful for those experiencing crown damage, soreness and thinning. I have been there and after paying extra attention(protein, more moisture, sectioning off) to that area, was able to reverse most of the damage. If you're suffering from any of the above, check out this video.

Cliff Notes:
  • Bald Crown Condition is known as Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) 
  • CCCA is the form of scaring Alopecia on the middle section of the scalp that results in hair loss
  • Early symptoms start with soreness, itching and burning in that area of the scalp 
  • Will also start to notice thinning hair in that area 
  • If you start to notice breaking and thinning in that area, don't freak out because you still have time to reverse it. 
  • Crown area of scalp is the most exposed to the environment
  • Watch out with sitting under the dryer for too long
  • If sitting under the dryer, put hair in high loose pony and cover with plastic cap.
  • Don't sit under dryer, with high heat, for longer than 30 minutes
  • When sectioning hair, don't put too much pressure on crown area. Break up the sections more(opposed to 4 sections, do 6)  
  • Give the crown area more attention than the rest of your hair. Moisturize more often. 
  • Tight up-do's should be minimized or eliminated
  • Watch out for bobby pins 
  • Wear loose ponytails
