“To start with, I love your blog and I follow it religiously. Thank you for being such an inspiration. I am having an issue with my hairline I do not know if other naturals have experienced this. I am in my third year of being natural and my hairline is always thin regardless of what I do. I used to think it was due to excessive pulling from the micros but I rarely braid my hair or tie my hair but I usually wear natural twists for protective styling. My mother (who just did her big chop) also suffers from a weak hairline and traction alopecia, but she used to relax her hair and blowdry everyday. I do not even own a blowdryer. I tried taking a break from twisting or putting tension on my hair but realised my hairline was breaking even more. There is some hair present but thin strands, I need advice please on how to protect my hairline or things I could do to prevent further damage.”
Have any of you had similar experiences? What is your advice to Tanaka?
