    Posted: May 21 2010 at 11:36am
Since March, I have developed a bald spot in the front of my head.  It circular in one spot and stretches about an inch to the right.  I have tried Sulfur 8, Head and Shoulders and that is okay to stop the itch and has thickened my hair everywhere except that spot.  What else can I do to stop the itch and grow my hair back in that spot?

During the winter, I had the same issue with one section in the back next to my neck.  It was bald.  Now, the hair has grown back, but straight.  It grows straight now.  I didn't do nothing to it.

I think the issue may be flat irons, blow drying with a hard brush and wool hats, but I'm not sure.

Well sounds like your suspicions could be correct. Those do sound like possible bad things esp the wool hats! And the hard brush XD and the blowdrying and flat irons! Okay that was everything you said, but they all sound plausible.

ETA: Oh and since my first post didn't really help out, you can try tea tree oil to stop the itching. But itching can be a sign of growth.

Be gentle with that spot and try a little castor oil mix on the spot. Castor oil is a miracle worker imo!

The follicles might have died in that spot...meaning you may never be able to grow hair there again. But don't lose hope just yet. I recommend you stop using products on it for a while, like 2 wks. The scalp need to rest and it needs to breathe. Shampoo the spot every day and leave it alone. If after this period of time nothing grows, you can resume using products.
Also, I hear peppermint oil helps to stimulate growth by increasing blood flow. Try that.

Is the spot completely bald or is it just broken off badly?

Be careful...if its itching and its bald in a circular shape it could be a fungus.  I would say if it is, you will need to go to the dermatologist.  In the mean time I would keep that area dry...fungus likes moist places so it will just spread.
Or it can be from the hat that you are wearing but I dont see why it would only be on one side...

That's the first thing that came to my  mind as well. If it is a fungus, I would suggest monistat.

You do know that SOME itching is attributed to growth and growing process?

or you could have a fungus
