So I noticed on my hairline I have a bald spot!

I noticed yesterday that I have a bald spot! I normally wear my hair up in two buns on my head. Could the tension be causing this? What would help regrow that part? Any products I could use?

    You should apply a little bit of castor oil on it ..
    It will help stimulate the growth in the hair bulb and revive and soften the scalp. 
    Maybe even make a synergy with essential oils like: castor oil and essential peppermint oil to speed up a little regrowth  :) 
    I just created an Instagram account on the evolution of my curly hair journey ! 
    It will be a pleasure to find you there  :)

    It could be traction. Keep an eye on it and don't be afraid to see a doctor in case it is a symptom of a larger problem. DiscoCurls on Youtube has successfully regrown her edges using a dermaroller. That is an option if you are willing. I'm sorry to hear about this, and I hope it grows back quickly.

    Try some Jamaican Black Castor Oil. I have a similar issue and just bought some by SheaMoisture today at Target. In the meantime, leave your hair alone without buns and/or tight ponytails/protective styles. Good luck!
