The most common issues with crowns for 180/360 waves and solutions.

The crown is simply the determining factor for how you swirl your waves. With that said, it is very sensitive and prone to forming a line on the crown and balding.

What does the line in the crown mean for wavers?

You must be freaking out as a beginner to see that line on your crown. What does it really mean? Are you balding? Yes. Just kidding, you are not balding. This line is mostly associated with a bald spot which is not. It is simply formed from brushing hair in different directions causing a parting line. Since we all brush differently, you will notice that this line is on a different spot in each individual’s head.

You can solve this problem by brushing correctly. First of all, a good crown wave brush is bound to help with this problem. Continue on to know how to properly brush your crown. 

How to find your crown?

Finding your crown does not have to be such a nightmare. All you really need is cutting your hair really short and looking. Look for the middle part where your hair naturally swirls to. Hair can either swirl clockwise or anticlockwise at the crown so be on the lookout.

How to close your crown

What does it mean when we say close your crown? Normally, the crown has just a bit of a bald spot depending on your wave pattern. As you continuously comb/brush, the ‘gap’ becomes more and more apparent. The good news is that you can ‘close this gap’ in simple steps.

  • Comb your hair closer and closer to the crown keeping in mind the direction of the swirl.
  • Moisturize your crown as often as you can since it is very sensitive and hair is thinner there.
  • Brush your hair around the crown each time being closer to the middle but paying attention to your wave pattern.

How to brush your crown?

When it comes to brushing your crown, the first and most important rule is to follow the direction of your swirl. This is to ensure that you get the definition and pattern you want to achieve. Swirl to whatever direction the crown naturally takes on and just follow it.

First of all, a good crown brush is a must. Consider an oval or arched brush for your crown at all times since it is easy to brush with it even at the crown where other brushes may need give that curve. The Beehive method is developing waves in a radial, circular way from the crown. To easily achieve this look, you have to break up the natural swirl your crown has.

For this to work you need your moisturizer of choice (since it is not right to brush dry hair.) A good brush and lots of brushing.



Hair is different for every individual, so do not compare your journey to anyone else’s. Be very gentle with your crown and hair in general, use the right tools and products at all times. Brushing and combing are easy things to do but ensure that your hair’s health is of the utmost importance. Waves should reflect just how healthy your hair is with the crown being at the centre of it all. Start your wave journey now and got everything you need right here.
