DEALING WITH SENSITIVE HAIRLINE /EDGES





  1. Minimize pulling of the hair back too tight.         Pulling the hair back tightly causes tension along the hairline and may result to broken hair or hair loss over time. styles in which the hair is pulled back should be worn minimally and/or loosely. if the style hurts, then listen to your hairline. 

  2.   Don't sleep in ponytails,buns and tight updo
     If your hairline is sensitive this is one of the worst things you can do, because turning and tossing at night can cause more problems. it is always best to wear  wrapped in a bonnet or in several loose braids/twist.

 3. Avoid wearing elastic headbands, tight scarf.
     Opt for loose scarf instead of tight headbands when you can.

 4. Apply natural butters/oils and then massage.
   This is really important for a recovering hairline. natural Shea butter and natural oils e.g( coconut,olive, castor,grape seed) contains substances that can soothe and nourish the scalp along the edges. they contain vitamin A , which plays a plays an important in the growth and maintenance of the follicles.
massaging the hairline may stimulate growth.  
      
  5. Don't make your braids/twists too small and tight along the hairline

 6. Try to redo braids/twist along the edges biweekly.

  2. I swear by massaging castor oil on your edges to thicken them up. I have been doing this about 3 times a week since May and I am seeing great progress :)

    Thanks for the other tips

  9. My edges are very sensitive and is still recovering from when I use to wear box braids. It's growing slowly I just wish it would grow faster. Tight box braids were my worst enemy when I was relaxed.

  11. My edges are getting super thin... I've started using a mix of diluted rosemary, peppermint and tea tree oils on my hairline.

  12. These are all great tips. I'm natural now but another thing I noticed that was really hard on my edges when I was relaxed was when I would "wrap" my hair.My beautician later told me that you are supposed to change the direction you wrap your hair every so often. That may help someone else.

  16. Oh these pictures are super frightening! I'm happy my hairline looks good, but that's probably because I don't do tight updos or tight braids. That is the worst.
