Thinning Edges, What's Going On With Your Natural Hair?

Thinning edges?  Losing hair is never a fun experience, but it can be particularly frustrating when it happens on your head's edges. Thinning edges are a common problem for natural hair women, and there are several things you can do to combat this issue.

Let's Take A Look At Common Causes And How to Combat Thinning Edges In Natural Hair and Promote Hair Growth

  • The most common cause of thinning edges is mechanical damage. This includes over-manipulation of your hair, tight hairstyles (such as braids and buns), product buildup, environmental damage, and nutrient deficiencies. For example, if you are experiencing thinning edges due to over-manipulation of the hair, a good first step is to reduce the amount of combing or styling that you do on a daily basis. If product buildup is an issue, switch up your products and use gentle products that are free of harsh chemicals. Additionally, it can be helpful to use a scalp massage brush when applying shampoo and conditioner to help get rid of any product buildup.
  • Hair that's also regularly exposed to heat and chemicals can also start to break down over time, leading to thinning edges.
  • Another possible factor is lifestyle-related stress and inadequate nutrition. Stress can cause hair follicles to enter a dormant state, and poor nutrition can lead to weak and brittle hair. It is also important to incorporate nutrient-rich foods into your diet in order to promote hair growth and health. Vitamins A, C, E, B-Complex, and biotin are important for promoting strong, healthy hair. Additionally, omega-3 fatty acids should be included in your diet to help keep your scalp nourished.
  • Finally, it is essential to protect your edges from environmental damage caused by the sun and wind. Investing in a stylish hat or scarf can do wonders to protect your edges and keep them healthy.

Once you've identified a potential cause or multiple potential causes, it's important to take the necessary steps to address them.
