Tamar has been hard at work these days, so we aren’t surprised that she might need a bit of chill time. She took to Instagram early this week posting a picture of herself without makeup, weave or wig. Tamar made a point to thank Simplicity Hair Oil for her present edge situation and the current health of her hair which she captioned as:
ALL mine #donthateu2cancomebackfromedgedeath2
That hashtag is pretty funny but very telling because many of us have the same issue and it can seem almost impossible to correct. The truth is your edges are very fragile, they are very sensitive to excessive pulling and stress.
Stress isn’t the only cause of thinning edges, it can also be hereditary which can make it very difficult to control but again not impossible. Here are a few tips:
►Wear styles that are not stressful on your edges, this can include loose buns, braids or twists
►Stimulate your hair follicles often with temple massages using oils that are geared towards increasing blood flow
►Eliminate any kind of bacterial or scalp issues by using products that kill germs and bacteria
They require carrier oils though so you can add them to coconut oil* or castor oil* which are also awesome for hair growth, removing fungus and over all hair and scalp health. A couple other things that you can add to your regimen, include aloe vera juice* and or gel, vitamin E* and Miconazole Nitrate* often found in yeast infection creams.
If you want to make your own super oil, just use all oils I mentioned mix and use a little everyday, massaging your hairline and scalp stimulating your hair follicles, creating increased blood flow eliminating dryness.
You can also choose to get a product that is sold commercially like Tamar mentioned in her Instagram post. The only thing we would advise is to check the ingredients thoroughly to ensure that you have what you need, no point in spending a ton of money for a bunch of fluff.
