As your hair continues to flourish with healthy hair practices, you might notice that your nape hair is not the same length as the rest or your hair.

As a matter of fact, your nape hair might be short, uneven, and experiencing breakage. This is common with many of us since it is a very sensitive area of the scalp and the easiest area to get tangled.
