The crown of my head has been bald at the top due to trauma from having a hair piece glued in and removed incorrectly over a decade ago.Recently my hair has been breaking off and falling out since the beginning of June this year. I was on my vacation in Orlando and it sweated out and was very dry. When I went to my hair stylist when I returned home She suggested a perm because it might due to going too long without relaxing it. Since thing it breaks and falls our daily

Hello Sharon,
The scenario you describes raises the possibility of several issues.

The first is related to hair follicle injury and inflammation that can occur as a result of glue irritation. This can initiate a process that has the potential to cause Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) which can lead to progressive balding and thinning for years that can cause permanent patches of hair loss.

The second is related to breakage and irritation at the center of the scalp which can be associated with a condition called neurodermatitis of the scalp. You can go to this page to learn more

Scheduling a consultation with a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment is advised.
