A few concerns...

Hey there :).

After I washed my hair last night (I got a good 4 days out of my rollerset... #winning lol), I decided to assess the current condition of my hair. Now while my hair is progressing reasonably well, I've been having some scalp issues recently. I've been having more flaking than usual since my last relaxer and the flakes have not been responding too well to my usual measures. I also think that I have some thinning in the crown of my head, as well as some tenderness. My edges have also been tender and the right edge has also been thinning out. I haven't really changed my techniques, lifestyle and I haven't been particularly stressed, so I'm not certain of the exact cause of what I have been experiencing. Generally for me, flaking is caused by build-up of a product, irritation of the scalp (due to harsh substances or some kind of allergy) or the result of chemical damage (relaxer burns mostly). Flakes could also easily be a flare up of my seborrheic dermatitis, but flares happen in relation to some kind of event, like sulfate use (with the exception of my hairline which is affected by my facial acne treatments).

I'm currently working to remedy the issues of flaking, tenderness and thinning. I'm pretty concerned about the spot in my crown that's tender and thinning because my coarse strands reside in the front of my head and that wouldn't be too poppin if they thinned out. If you have any suggestions for how I can deal with these problems feel free to leave a comment below.

Thanks for reading :),
