There are a few steps that are very important when it comes to protecting your edges. Our hairline is our pride and glory and being without it may bring in so many insecurity. Maybe you may not want to wear your hair out ever again or it may be because you are scared it might get worse. And you have tried every product there is. The main questions you would ask yourself is what you may possible be doing wrong, what products are you going to desperately need and if you are really taking care of your hair correctly. You end up searching the whole web but you still cannot found a solution.
Stop!! Breathe girl.
First things first, you are doing too much to your hair, now it’s confused. You might have been doing something correctly but you kept on congesting your routine with other unnecessary stuff. Don’t worry let me help you with 4 easy steps!
- Protect your hairline with a silk scarf/bonnet or silk pillow case.
- Have a hair growth oil
- Wigs and protective styles
Another root cause of hair loss to your edges is undoubtedly wigs and protective styles. It’s not a shocking fact that how we get our hair done can affect the layout of our hair. This is because of one reason only, the wigs and the protective styles are too tight for the roots that it affects the scalp. Now as you continuously manipulate your hair in that manner it causes the hairline to start losing shape and affects the roots making them weaker due to the serious tension. This thereby jeopardizes the hair growth. We ladies love to look good in our protective styles and wigs so always remember to reduce the tension as you get protective styles and wear a wig cap before wearing your wigs.
- A clean scalp is a happy scalp
Mainly focusing on the edges, always pay close attention to the cleansing process. Even after wash-day you still have dirt accumulation due to the gels and makeup that you apply. So as you wash it off (the make-up and gel) remember to wash your hairline as well to prevent build-up and clogged pores. This will remove all the gunk that clogs the pores hindering the hair growth process.
Lastly, make sure to exercise some patience in your hair because hair growth can take a while. Hair is an important feature that stands out and can also express your personality. Another thing you can do is invest in products that can best boost your hair growth and you will never regret it once you decide to step up your hair game.
