Combination hair :(
Dear Cyber Doc,
I have thin, curly hair, shoulder length. However, the hair on my crown is very coarse and weak. I''m using bergamot essence as a regular treatment as well as in my conditioner, but nothing works. It''s so frustrating if I for example go swimming. the rest of the hair around my head has nice curls, but on the top it''s coarse and uncontrolable and grows very slowly. What can I do?

Hallo Mandy
Have you checked your thyroid hormone levels yet? It can also be due to low esterogen levels if you are menopausal age or low iron levels.
