Candice: I have 2 different textures.. my occipital bone area has the most coarse part. all the other hair grows long but that area seems not to. it won’t hold 2 strand twist or a press what should i do?
CurlyNikki: Like me and the majority of the natural hair community, you have different textures… the different sections of my hair have different temperaments. My hair in the front grows fast and shrinks very little while the hair in the back grows slow and shrinks a TON. To work with what I’ve got, I had my stylist hook me up with a graduated bob. Maybe you can do the same? lol, if not and it is truly a concern, make sure your hair isn’t breaking off in that area. If it is, assess your regimen and make the appropriate changes. If it’s a matter of textures (that area doesn’t show length as well as others), you could use heavier products there like gels to hold the style. Hope that helps!
