How Can I Get My Edges To Grow Back
What people normally see first is your hair, your edges. Many women struggle with hair loss around their edges or thin edges. Lack of edges has caused insecurity in a lot of females because they don’t like how they look. Then, they research ways to grow their edges back. That’s why we’re here. We know you want thick edges so that your look more presentable as well as your hair can be ‘laid for the Gods’.
Here are some tips on how to grow your edges back:
Hair Restoration Implants
Hair Implants methods such as micro, slit and punch grafting can help you grow your edges back. This is where the surgeons cut your scalp into small segments and place the varying amounts of hair in each graft. You would only be recommended to do this if hair loss runs in your family or you received a major or minor injury to your edges
Avoid Tight Hairstyles
Tight ponytails, buns, braids and cornrows will pull on your hairline and cause hair loss. Therefore, avoid doing these hairstyles, or do them loosely so that your hairline will not be affected.
Be Conscious Of Chemical & Thermal Processes
Chemical processing such as bleaching, lightening, and relaxers that are placed along the hairline will cause damage. They will weaken the hair at that sensitive area thus causing hair loss or thinning. As well as, straightening your hair with heat.
Flat irons can cause damage if it’s left near to your edges too long because the heat will burn it. Choose to avoid these processes or be wary of their effects.
Eat Healthy & Exercise
Foods rich in vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc, vitamin d, and vitamin b12 will help to regenerate hair loss as well as thinning strands. Eat a diet full of green leafy vegetables, protein and nuts. This will give your hair enough nutrients to boost the hair growth process.
Also, exercise throughout the week. Exercise will keep the body active, and contributes to hormonal balance. Thus, your hair will produce more of the hormone it needs for hair growth.
Consider Using Medication
Rogaine is an over the counter topical medication which contains minoxidil. This ingredient increases blood flow of oxygen and nutrients to the follicles thus promoting growth. It won’t restore all your hair loss but it will help to regrow a bit. To take advantage of its effectiveness massage it into your scalp twice per day.
Use Healthy Hair Products
Use products that are free of chemicals such as parabens, sulphates, mineral and petroleum oil. When 100% natural or organic products are being absorbed by our scalp this will reduce breakage and shedding. Also, nutrients are vitamins from the products are being deposited on our scalp and promoting growth.
