Default How to grow my edges back?

I'm new to this forum and I have a million questions. But I'll do one at a time. I had alot of my hair fall out after I had my son which made my edges pretty much nonexistent. I'm not sure what to do to get them to grow back. Its been three years and they're still only like an inch long. I haven't been taking very good care of my hair until I got a hair cut in September. Now I'm on a journey to get healthy hair. I want it to grow but I think the health is more important. Anyone have any ideas about getting my edges to grow?

have you tried scalp massaged? You can do it with a mix of essentials oils and EVOO.

Hopefully more people will respond.

Ok thanks. I started doing scalp massages recently but I never used anything with it. I'll try that.

you can use peppermint, lavendar, thyme, or rosemary but always mix these oils with a carrier oil like EVOO. NEVER use them by themselves.

Try ORS Temple Balm or Nioxin follicle booster. I tried both for my edges during different events which caused my egdes to break off and they both worked well for me.

In addition to the great advice already given, avoid manipulation as much as possible. Limit any brushing, combing, smoothing with hands, some headbands with teeth, or stress (ie tight ponies or buns) on your edges. If you're relaxed, try to stretch your relaxers longer and touchup that area last. Make sure your edges are always moisturized.

Hope this helps!

I have heard a lot of good things about Sulu Max. If you do a search on this site you will find a few threads on it. There are also a few videos on youtube the tracks the progress of hair growth using the product.

Warning......the smell is not the greatest but it does work. I have tried it.

I am sure your edges will grow back in. Keep us posted.

My edges fell out right after I had my 2 year old as well. 2 bad I didn't know about LHCF back then. I just skimmed the other posts but if no1 has suggested it, maybe u should try Mega Tek. Here's a post on the Mega Tek thread from a lady whose progress truly inspires me. She might even be willing 2 help u out w/a routine 2 get ur edges back n shape. http://www.longhaircareforum.com/sho...t=#post5524933

I am getting to scalp massaging my temple area and putting off my relaxers for 12-16 weeks or 12-26 weeks.

NLS is right - MegaTek worked (is still working for me).

It is made for horses and humans, both. If you are uncomfortable using an animal product you can by Ovations Cell Therapy, it is the more expensive, made and marketed to humans, Mega Tek. Both products are made by the same company.
