Thinning 4a in killed me!

Hello ladies! I got a sew in at the end of January that I believe is the cause of my hair in the middle that was before perfectly healthy, thinning and feeling brittle. This is just saddening. A month has gone by and I find that the spot is mildly balding! I'm only 19! I can't have bald spots! What should I do to fix this? :(

    The weave may have been installed improperly. It's the main reason why I stopped getting them since they were jacking up my hair.

    Take the weave out, then get some castor oil, biotin or rosemary oil and massage the spot for a few minutes a couple of times a day.

    when braids gave my friend a bald spot in the crown, her derm prescribed rogaine for women. the patch filled back in completely.
