My hair is currently mid back, soft, minimal heat damage, but the top part of my hair refuses to grow. I have trimmed it, not put a lot of heat on it, wear closures, oil it, and it still has not grown. What is frustrating is that my hair is constantly growing around it, so it looks like I have a natural bang. It is annoying and I hate it, but I know I can get past it, because in high school (3-5 years ago) the center of my hair refused to grow. It was always tender, and always short. It was HORRIBLE. And just like now, took forever to grow back, but it did! So since school is starting in a few weeks I will be back to my full sew ins/ trying a wig for the first time!
