Losing your hair can be quit an embarrassment, especially, if the hair loss is in the front of your head or at the nape of your neck. Your hair edges give a nice manicured look to any hairstyle, so it’s important to keep them in tact and free from breakage. If you do notice some thinning or breakage along your edges then there are a few simple things that you can do to eliminate breakage and get those pesky edges back to being full and neat.
Your hair edges can be very sensitive and may break easily and when you first notice your edges thinning or breaking, the first thing to do is find the cause of the thinning or breakage. Once you’ve narrowed down the cause of your thinning or breaking hair edges then you want to eliminate the cause and apply methods to stimulate and retain new growth to those edges.[voices.yahoo]
There ARE Ways To Stop Hair Loss And Regrow Hair The Natural Way
- Ease up on the tension. Most ladies utilize protective styling to retain the most amount of hair growth; however these styles place the most amount of tension on the edges and nape of the hair. Ponytails, buns, wraps, cornrow braids and wigs – they are beautiful and do help the hair to flourish but if you are having an issue with your halo, do not do these styles continuously. Be sure you do not pull to tightly when wearing a ponytail or bun. Definitely avoid sleeping with the hair pulled taught. If you are wearing a wrap style, switch up the direction every few days so that one side doesn’t always receive the highest amount of tension.
- Treat the area as you do the ends of your hair. Most healthy hair journey women are diligent about moisturizing and sealing the ends of the hair first and being extremely careful with them also. But a lot of times, the edges and nape area are neglected when applying moisturizer and conditioner – especially the area behind the helix of the ear. Be sure you fold your ear down if necessary and care for that area. The edges and nape require just as much attention as the ends do, so treat them the same.
- Check your sleep head gear. A lot of hair bonnets have exposed elastic on the interior which can wreak havoc on your edges! If you own one of these either turn it inside out or replace it with one of the bonnet styles that has fabric covered edges. If you wear a scarf, pay attention when you tie it! Be sure you don’t catch any hair in the knot. Also be sure to check that the nape is completely covered by the bonnet or scarf, sometimes we place the head gear above our ears which means that the nape of our hair is exposed. I also sleep on a satin pillowcase because I realize a lot of scarves tend to fold or move up while I am sleeping.
- It is okay if they are not “perfect”! We all like our hairstyles to look neat, and few of us want bushy, “fly away” edges. So we apply gels and glazes, then brush our edges and nape into place. This is so counterproductive to having the healthiest edges possible. The gels are drying and cause buildup and brushing causes breakage and thinning. Smooth them into place with a moisturizing hold product (such as Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter) and use either a very soft brush or better yet a comb to style.
- Invest in a silk or satin cap to wear beneath your wig(s). If you are a die hard wig wearer, do not use the nylon wig caps on a daily or regular basis. They pull at your halo hair and zap the moisture from your strands leading to breakage and even damage. If you can’t find one in stores, try the Beauty Town Luxury Unisex Satin Dome cap available at online retailers such as Hair Wig Harlem and Golden Mart Beauty Supply.
- Try massaging those areas with castor oil. I have witnessed several women, including my mother, who use castor oil to help the edges of their hair to fill in. The proof is in the pudding with this one. I love a good ol’ tried and true method!

Wash the area daily with apple cider vinegar massage into the scalp. Afterward add coconut oil to the area. Brush the scalp daily to get blood flowing to that area with a firm brush with plastic bristles that you would use for wigs. Do not add sewn extensions, glue, or tape on those areas again. You should see improvements in the area soon.
