I am experiencing hair loss in the crown of my head the size of a quarter. I am an african american woman. When I keep my hair braided with no chemicals, the hair grows back, so I know that it has the ability to grow. When I put a relaxer on my hair, I experience itching from within in only one area, then a month or so later the hair will fall out, but it only comes out in the same area. Could I be just allergic and sensitive in only one section of my hair. What do you recommend?
Yes, an allergy would be highly probable. It might also be a chemical burn. I have no suggestions other than speak with your stylist or your dermatologist.
