View Full Version : Sorry for asking

Yeah, sorry about this, because I don't have a problem... it's just my OCD kicking things off with me... so I do apologise for asking.

Anyway, I've got no hair loss or thinning. I have seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp, so my scalp is of a pinkish hue. I also have very blonde hair.

But what is the like strip thing of pink? I mean, if I look at my hair with natural light, like using a mirror or something, it's not there. If I use my laptop to take a pic, and the light from the screen is on my head I get this like weird (you'll see what I mean) line on the top of my head.


See what I mean? No hair loss or thinning.... so is that 'line' part of my crown, or just noticeable cuz of the blonde hair/pink scalp thing?

Sorry for asking, just want to know.

You are correct that the line in the crown is just the the cowlick or hair diverging in different diections. Plus the contrast between the scalp and hair color adds to this visual phenomenon.
