If You Want Your Edges Back Stop Doing These 4 Things

Edges wanted poster

My daughter Jasmine is almost 6 years old and at that inquisitive stage where she wants to know why things are the way they are. She asks a question and whatever mine or my husband's response she always has 8 more follow on questions. She is a bonafide information sponge at the moment.

Yesterday when I told her that I wanted to wash her hair during bath time she demanded to know if I was going to use the shower or bathtub water to wash her hair. I told her that I would use the shower as I always did. 'Oh good' she exclaimed. 'I like the way the shower tickles my edges!'.

I had a giggle wondering how she even knew about edges and told her that she needs to say 'hairline' instead. It got me thinking about how important our hairlines are to us black women.

I think she was implying that if you are experiencing hair loss to avoid certain styles or anything that will put tension on your edges. For me I give my hair time to breathe before I get it re braided (like 2-3 weeks) and I don’t leave my braids in for more then 4-6 weeks depending on the style. And I don’t really like the puff so I usually do a frohawk with bobby pins so my edges aren’t tightly pulled and I dnt use edge control or gel they dry your hair out a lot and I dnt like the build up it causes.

smh

Brianna Lewis

oooh honey…

BlackHairInformation.com

That’s exactly what I meant. And naturals can still wear braid outs, twist outs because the hair isn’t kept braided for extended periods. Also updos done with bobby pins would work well. The idea is to forget about length retention until those edges are back.

Stacie Hart

So wrong!!!

Black beauty and long hair

Castor oil and megatek is pretty effective to grow hair back.

Kafui Sepenou

Coloring while natural is fine as long as you maintain it. I dont understand why it’s always associated with breakage… The lady on the pic doesn’t have color, just saying…

Shemeke L Reyes

Sad all black women laughing talking about her but no one said what she can do to grow them back but its always us.

Iaso emu oil helps with hair growth in addition to other common problems ppl face everyday, so inbox me to order your bottle of iaso emu oil. Thanks for reading and GOD bless you all! 🙂 xoxo

I’m glad I don’t have this issue anymore. Also jamaican black castor oil helps bring back those edges. Monistat helps too! Don’t come for me unless u tried it. I big chopped 05/29/14 and my hair is at my collar bone bc of it

Ashley Blue

It keeps sending the message back to me…anyways i mix monistat with a light oil and I apply it to my scalp. For a week daily. It will itch but it opens up closed follicles. It’s an anti fungus creme clearing up any fungus u have. After a week I apply it every other day. It works no lie. You can good monistat for hair. It’s used on cancer patients

Wendy Leblanc

Thanks girl.. Never thought of that. Awesome idea they came up with.. I will definitely try it.

Dani Simone Craig

I only agree with #4, when I had a relaxer it was colored and I had edges. Now I’m natural and I braid my hair and pull in tight puffs and I still have edges.

From my experience, having to many different people doing your hair is what did it to me. I had had never had a problem with my edges before then.
