Crown breakage


Hey all!

Does anyone have a good plan of action for my client. Level 7, fine haired coloured to a 9-10 is experiencing breakage only in crown. About 2" left. I believe back combing is exacerbating it.

How can she move forward styling and continue coloring while rebuilding the length in her crown?

Thank you!

What do you think is the cause? Sounds like tight ponytails to me, as you say backcombing won't help.

It will grow back in time, advise her on haircare, styling and recommend products. You can still continue colouring it, it'll be fine, the hair isn't damaged as such or in bad condition, its just that the friction of certain styling has essentially cut into the hair.
