Protect your edges!

Loss of your edges can be a heart breaking thing! I haven’t gone through this as such but I have had at some point in my life thinning of hair in certain areas. There is always space for a few more hairs to grow so I still follow the same regime as always to keep my edges intact and keep my hair continuing on this health path. A few tips below that I follow and may benefit you too!

Top Tips

I moisturise and oil any thinning areas carefully ensuring I am using healthy and natural products on and around my hair line. There are a lot of scalp stimulating products and treatments out there, it’s just a case of finding the right one that works for you.

Avoid pulling your hair in to really tight ponytails. Personally I do not use hair bands regularly tie my hair as it causes me headaches and tight bumps which I just don’t need the added stress of. You want to practice low manipulation on the areas you want to grow back especially so it is very important to be mindful of how tight you are pulling our hair.

Cover your hair with a silky or satin scarf when you go to bed at night. This will ensure that movement in your sleep will not rub or cause friction between your hair and the harsh material of the headscarf or tights which will in turn, lessen the amount of hair you shed each night.

Free your hair. For a time do not apply any gels or edge control to your hair. Let your edges breath and leave them alone! I have been using the above regime for some time now, and I am pleased to say I am still blessed with the edges I was born with. We thank God!

  1. This !!!! Love this one ! Probably my favourite post. As I am someone who always has my hair in a ponytail . I already cover my hair with a silk scarf but I have noticed keeping the edges moisturised with natural products helps. It’s great to know people do the same thing ! A lot of people need to know this !
    Thanks girl
