If you're reading this, we assume you deal with broken hair around your hairline. Ugh, same.
While it's not something that everyone experiences, there are a handful of us who battle with the hairs around our hairline repeatedly snapping, despite our best efforts.

But why these hairs? Why just the baby ones?
"This area of hair is the thinnest area of hair on the head, so it is already weaker than the rest of the head hair," Trichologist Carolyn Evans-Frost told Mamamia.
Makes sense, no?
To learn more about these pesky little buggers, what causes them and how to repair them, we asked Carolyn a few more questions.
What are some causes of breakage around the hairline?
"Normal hair styling, colouring and straightening" are the usual culprits here, according to Carolyn. "As it is at the most visual part of the head hair, it tends to be more processed and more styled than everywhere else on the head."
She also explained that there might be a more complex problem at play.
"The front hairline is also where we can get the gradual hair thinning, Androgenetic Alopecia (also called Female and Male Pattern Hair thinning). Plus, we can also have diffuse hair thinning which is a general hair thinning, or Telogen Effluvium, a type of diffuse hair loss.
Even though it happens diffusely all over the head, most people will notice it more at the fine hairline as it's very exposed in these naturally thin areas of hair," she said.
OK, so how do we treat these causes?
Carolyn explained that the best way to treat hair snapping is by going easy on the styling products and tools.
"Being gentle with hair styling and processing in these areas is a good place to start," she explained.
But you may need to see a specialist to determine if it's a growth issue.
"Checking for hair structure problems is a way to confirm if there is a growth problem from either Androgenetic Alopecia or diffuse hair thinning. This is done with the help of a Trichologist with a microscope."
