Hopefully a derm or trich can determine if the follicles are "alive". A derm may be better because trich don't accept insurance since they are considered cosmetic.

Does she have any illness or is taking any meds that may cause the hair loss? Hair loss at the edges is usually due to tension but it could be other factors as well.

I have been using JBCO and Dr. Miracles Nape and Blam for my edges and they have been growing in slowly but they have been filling in. I wear weaves but nothing that pulls my edges because I find that in you keep them oiled they don't fall out as much as when they are dry.

These aren't the best pics and the recovery has been really slow at times. But it's progress. She should try adding essential oils to the castor oil. I've used MTG, rosemary, eucalyptus, and some others. Maybe she should try peppermint or something. And keep the hair moisturized and strengthened (through conditioning and moisture-izing).

I would recommend a full wig while in public, but then remove when at home to treat the hair and scalp.

No fact, nothing that will stress her hair or hairline more - like the added weight of a weave, braids or twists.

Keep the scalp clean, deep condition the hair strands and do scalp massages daily with a light oil.

Good luck

Default Re: Going from no edges to full edges + hair under weave care

Hi....how does your mom usually style her weaves? i ask because maybe you could find a comparable wig and just purchase it for her. take it to her house one day (unbeknowst to her) and whip it out. have fun with it and get her to try it on. if she is going off of what her mom's wig used to look like then she prol doesn't know the fantastic and varying looks of wigs nowadays. i know mom's can be just that - moms! and it can be hard to convince them. there is a thread called "i'm a survivor" here on the forum where many traction alopecia (and other hairloss causes) sufferers post their experiences and what they have used (present company included!)......maybe you and your mom could peruse that thread for some additional ideas and inspiration. my mom is thinning on the top from years of chemical coloring; and i had thinning from years of weaves. i started using sulfur and joined the sulfur challenge and had great success while LF wigging it over a protective style.....i knew,though, that just telling my mom about the sulfur would never convince her, so one day when she was at my house i pulled out my progress pics and waited for her to ask me what i was doing.....that opened the door to her trying the sulfur mix......sometimes you gotta be a little calculated with dear mom - especially when you know they are hard-headed! good luck!!

p.s. - here are a couple of progress pics from my journey to fill in the bald....the first one is from and Jan and the second in March....the third is from this month...i used homemade sulfur mix and washed and DC'd weekly from Jan 2011 to present....moisturizing daily is essential - first with a leave in condish followed by a moisturizer (i use qhemet AHC) and seal ends with oil (usually JBCO).

Anyway, i have been having her put JBCO on her edges every night since i got here (2 weeks now) but i would like to know what else she could do in addition to that.

If you ladies have any pictures of going from no edges to full edges please pot them up along with a full explanation of what you did to achieve it.

Also, she is going to wear weaves for the time being. If you ladies have regimens for hair under weaves please share. The hair she buys lasts her like 2 months but its synthetic. She wants it to last awhile so washing often won't really be an option.

Appreciate your help and advice in advance!!

I have not read the whole post but although she doesn not like wigs how about making her a quick weave wig. It gives her the allusion of a weave and can come on and off as she pleases while taking care of her hair under the unit.

You've gotten great advice so far. I truly hope you can convince your mom to go for a wig. I feel like a weave will do more damage. Good luck!

Default Re: Going from no edges to full edges + hair under weave care

Lizza the attached pic is not exactly full edges but my edges are so much better than when I started my hhj in Aug. I use a number of methods that I learned from this board. My thinning edges are due to genetics and traction alopecia. The traction alopecia occurred about 20 maybe even 30 years ago when I was a young woman. It has taken a long time but the hair is growing back, so I believe that your Mom's thinning edges can recover. I say this because my edges near my temples were as smooth as a baby's bottom and the hair is growing in slowly ( and gray) but it's growing. I use emu oil and recently I started taking pumpkin see oil (I believe I saw this on Lita's post ) vitamins. I also use regular/jamacian black castor oil and I rub vitamin E in the thinning areas.

Contact the poster by pm and politely ask her to take it down. If she doesn't contact the system administrator.

That's a good idea, plus it should stay on.

Just to clarify for the OP, it's not the same as using a net while weaving. I used a net for my last (and final for a while) and lost an entire braid.

Yeah, I never understand why a person would gravitate there. I don't even lurk. Too much going on in all the wrong places. What's the point of being a b!itch? Especially with strangers... Sad.
