Have your edges been damaged by alopecia, postpartum shedding, braids, or hairstyles that put excessive tension on your hairline? Here's 4 hacks to regrow your edges back to health featuring our NEW Edge & Temple Strengthening Oil created to nourish, repair, and lock in moisture for stronger, fuller edges.
Hack 1: Ditch Hairstyles that Weaken Edges:
Traction alopecia is real! Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss resulting from prolonged pulling or tugging on the hair and scalp. Specifically affecting and weakening the hairline.
If you regularly wear hairstyles including tight braids, sleek ponytails, heavy locs, or any style that puts too much tension on your edges it's time to give your hairline a break. We recommend low manipulation styles like flat twists, natural puffs, or a silk press.
Hack 2: Moisturize Edges Daily:
Hair grows best when the scalp is clean, stimulated, and moisturized.
In addition to regularly cleansing and conditioning your strands, moisturize your hairline daily with our lightweight restorative Scalp & Skin Edge & Temple Strengthening Oil. Blended with over 20 essential oils, including black castor oil, biotin, and peppermint to intensely nourish and repair hair at breaking points (around the hairline and temples) giving each strand a fuller and healthier appearance.
- Apply daily, directly to the target areas around the hairline or entire scalp.
- Massage, focusing on the applied areas. Leave in and style as desired.
- Apply consistently day & night for better results.
DE Pro Tip: It's super important to protect your edges while sleeping. After applying Edge & Temple Strengthening Oil at night, protect your hairline with a satin scarf to eliminate dryness and breakage. Try the pHusion Satin Hair Wrap or Bonnet.
Hack 3: Avoid Thermal Styling Overload Around Your Hairline :
Despite popular believe, the edges and nape of your hair does not need to be fried, dyed, and laid to the side.
Overusing heating tools around the hairline causes breakage and damage. Therefore, it’s essential to reduce how often you use thermal tools like flat-irons, blow dryers, or pressing-combs.
You can lay your edges without doing the most. If you insist on thermal styling your hairline, always use the lowest heat setting possible, use a thermal protectant like our Agave & Lavender Weightless Thermal Protectant Serum to help restore and replenish moisture. Then finish your style with our Sleek MAX edge Control for a long-lasting, strong hold.
Hack 4: Drink Plenty of Water:
Drinking 8 glasses of water a day keeps your hair and skin hydrated. Our bodies are comprised of 60% - 80% water, so when properly hydrated this improves the condition of the scalp and hair follicle which supports healthy hair growth.
Honestly, this is the most critical hack to regrowing your hairline. Drinking plenty of H20 is proven to slow hair breakage and hair loss. It also promotes shiner, fuller, stronger growth.
Regrowing your hairline will take time and patience considering hair normally grows up to 6 inches a year(and that's if the hair follicle isn't severly damaged). So, trust the process by following these healthy hair hacks, give your edges extra TLC, and watch your hairline flourish!
