Summer is coming to a close,and many women are starting to come out of their braids. Braids are a nice,cool,and convenient style for summer. If you’ve been wearing them from late April to late August though,you are bound to have thinning. Wearing them for three weeks at a time,taking them out,and shampooing. Only to get them put back in within a few days is not a long enough break.
Thin edges are a common and embarrassing issue. This problem can be caused by tight hairstyles,weaves,or braids. It can also be genetics. Sometimes the hair will grow back. Sometimes it won’t. If you have had smooth bald areas around your hairline for years,the hair bulb is probably destroyed. Therefore no matter what you use to regrow hair,it ain’t coming back. Speak with a dermatologist and a hair transplant surgeon for your options on how to get your hairline to fill back out.
For those of you who have experienced only temporary thinning ,there is hope! Here are three products to try:
Well, it’s that time of the year and many women are turning to braid and cornrow styles. They are the most convenient way to keep your hair looking maintained and stylish in the summer heat. But even though this protective style is low maintenance, it still has to be MAINTENANCED. Protective styles should only stay in for a month at a time. 2 months maximum. Any longer than that and your new growth will stretch and damage. This completely negates the point of protective styling. In addition to this, your braided style will also need to be cleansed. Sweating,dust and dirt causes odor. Conditioning afterwards isn’t necessary. Masks and conditioners tend to loosen braids because of their silken qualities. Conditioners will certainly affect the wear life span and often times will cut it in half. Use hydrating shampoos and oils sprays on braided hairstyles instead. I attached a video demonstrating the cleansing of a braided style below.
