    Posted: Nov 29 2010 at 6:16pm
I've been dealing with terrible breakage at the crown of my head for about 6 months.  I've had it cut to camouflage it, but now it's almost to the point where I cant hide it unless I brush the hair at the front of my head back in order to hide it, and I'm afraid that soon that will stop working.  As soon as it begins to grow back, it breaks right back out.  I purchased aphogee 2 min keratin, and 2 step protein yesterday in hopes that they might halt the breakage.  I'm depressed about it and its getting to the point where I hate to get up and fix my hair in the morning.  Anyone have any ideas on what could alt the breakage and speed up the hair growth in that area?  I t would be greatly appreciated.Cry

you may have a hormonal issue if you have had no stress or chemical damage.
 
i would see a dermatologist just to be sure.
 
post this over in the growth section and hopefully miss claudie will see it and reply....she is the master of all things breakage related.

I have the same issue.  I just realized that I have alot of stress with school and running my business.  What i have done is use methods to reduce the stress and gradually it has grown back quite well but it is a slow process. I asked my other friends to see if they could suggest other methods but nothing comes close.  I have co wash my hair 2 times a month and prepo/shampoo my hair once a month. It has been growing so I guess the only thing now for me to do is have patience.  Something I am not use to.  But continue with the protien treatment, watch the heat and moisturize.  It will grow back.  I hope this helps you.

This has happened to me every year without fail since I was in high school.
 
After trying many things and altering my regimen over and over, I now believe it is an inflammatory auto -immune  disease called central centrifugal citracal alopecia.
 
Look it up, and if you think this is it, a dermatologist can give you a topical steriod cream or steriod shots to reduce the inflammation.
 
Essential oils (unless you are pregnant) can help, but also mixing cayenne pepper with emu oil (or any other oil) can be a good natural substitute. (Im currently trying this now) 
 
 
Allow the pepper/oil mix to "set" 10-14 days and use it on your scalp. Cayenne pepper has a substance in it that helps with hair growth and also is anti inflammatory.
 
I sure hope this helps:)

I agree it can be hormonal. After I had my first child I had a lot of hair breakage. See a Dermatologist if possible.

Depending on how old you are it could be androgenetic alopecia aka female pattern baldness.  It's something i'm going through and it sucks.
