Many women suffer from thinning edges and some of the causes of this are stress, hereditary factors, diet and especially our obsession with wearing weaves, braids and lace front wigs. Excessive pulling and tugging of the edges to do tight ponytails and buns also affect the edges.
Water and Natural oils are the best aids for hairline control. Water hydrates the hair and Castor oil promotes hair growth and controls hair loss. It also treats infection and dandruff. Shea butter nourishes the hair and peppermint oil can help stimulate hair growth because of its ability to increase blood circulation around the scalp.
To protect your edges, avoid hair products that contain alcohol and avoid the usage of harsh chemicals like relaxers and dyes because they have a tendency of drying the hair. Reduce the amount of heat styling you do on your hair as well. Also, you should always wear a silk scarf because it retains the moisture in your hair. You could apply serum to your hair and cover it with a silk scarf for better hair treatment.
