      There is no truth to “edge regrow products.” They are gimmicks that don’t work because you cannot apply anything topically to positively effect an internal issue at the hair cell level. The problem is the DNA has changed. Once the DNA is changed, the hair is usually gone for good!

      Dr.Miracle did nothing for me but are you using regular castor oil or Jamaican black? Another that really help was miconazol nitrate (yes lol) especially for the edges.

      I agree with you..I have wasted money on Dr. Miracle and that Castro Oil. Maybe I will try the Emu Oil, but if the Castro Oil is suppose to be the “daddy of all”, why waste my money. A woman’s hair is her glory, so you can imagine how disappointed I am. My hair loss is due to raising a 17 year old grandson who is now 22.

    If your edges are thinning, then these things might work for you. But if they are gone, as in baby bald and when the hair came out there was a white/clearish particle at the end then that hair is gone. Nothing on the surface can regenerate the root to grow back.

    Well, I have tried them all…they all are good however I have a medical condition and went to my doc aft using 10 different products…the doc told me to use the men minoxidil it is actually working…this has been under my nose all this time…it does dry the hair out so I use mixed Shea butter…I have all the oils which I like them especially jbco…emu oil..argan oil…etc..I have had the bald spot for years it had turned white and the doc explained it may not grow back but use it anyway then we will know for sure …I can’t believe its growing back…

    I wish I had taken pictures but ACV mixed with water, wild growth oil, avocado oil and Giovanni Direct leave in have been what I’ve been using. I was using JBCO about 4 months but stopped. Lace fronts pulled the top part of my edges out and they’ve regrown drastically since I started doing this. .I scalp massage, deep condition weekly and try to wash my hair every two weeks. I also stopped using combs on my hair. I had a bald spot that made my scalp visible. It’s vanishing. Soon I’m going to be able to wear my hair down again. I’m excited. My PCP also told me stop putting my hair in ponytails. I’ve done so and seen a great improvement.

    I basically put my leave in in my hair.
    Wild Growth
    Avocado oil and then spray it with water and ACV then braid my hair in loose plats and tie my hair down.
