Default Proven Products for Thinning Edges and Fine Hair

Wow I haven't posted in this section of the board for months. Ok well here is my problem I want to know what you ladies have tried to bring your edges back that has been proven to work. Also what products may I use to thicken my hair. I don't want to do castor oil because it is not permanent. I want something to permanently thicken my hair. I have also tried B Complex vitamins to thicken it and that hasn't worked either. Unless maybe I need to change the brand. Please, any suggestions?

TIA

I dont know for sure about thickening ur hair but I thought biotin helped w/that?

For the thinning edges the Organic Root Stimulators Fertilizing Temple Balm is a sure winner. Its worked for me and other friends that I recommened to. Here is a pic of the product...

I have been using Nioxin Follicule Booster and Nexxus Biotin Creme on my hair line and I can't say it has grown (only using 3 weeks) it has has not gotten worse and looks a lot better. I have been surging my entire scalp 1x day also. I don't have an answer for the thickener....

If you do a search on Nexxus Biotin creme or surge you may find some threads on the hair line also.

Nioxin follicle booster helped re-grow new hair around my sides. Pretty good considering I slacked off on using it everyday and still got good results. Its a little expensive though.

Things that have helped with my thinning edges...

Doo Gro Stimulating Growth Oil (used before LHCF)
Surge Plus 14 (only used two bottles, don't have this anymore)
NatureMade Super B-Complex (currently taking)

And this is not a product but... going natural is helping significantly!

Have you treid Pantothenic acid (B5) specifically? I just started taking them to thicken up my fine hair so I can't talk about my own results but Nyambura swears by them. I'm taking a 500 mg dose twice a day.

I have seen this in the stores. I think I am going to pick some up today. How long did it take for you to notice a difference? No one has any suggestions for thicker hair. I want to try something that someone has already seen results with.

No I hadn't heard of this. Are these vitamins that you take daily?

I used Profectiv Growth n' Healing Anti-Thinning Circulation Stimulant on my nape area with good results. I had breakage/thinning due to tying my scarf too tightly at night and this product definitely helped to regrow my hair.

With the ORS I would say you will see results in about 1-2 weeks. I had an actual bald spot on my edges where I had braids and one got yanked out by accident and left a spot. I helped the hair grow back plus thickened up the rest of my edges from too tight braids... It kinda expensive, approx. $12 for that bottle but its worth it...

Thanks I am definitely going to pick some up when I get off. I wonder if it would thicken my whole head if I used it al over.

Yep. I got them from GNC. Once (500 mg) in the morning and once (500mg) in the afternoon or evening. Nyambura says she saw results with her first touch up. And she says she hasn't talked to anyone to whom she has recommended them where it hasn't worked. Some other ladies on the board recommended it to her.

My understanding is that biotin helps with length.

The supplements that I take in addition to my regular hair vitamin have really made an improvement in the thickness of my hair. Tracy told me about biotin, pantothenic acid, and MSM when I first started coming to the board. I call it the Trifecta. It took a while (over a year), but the thickness of my ponytial has improved and it takes bigger rollers to set my hair.

I use Queen Helene garlic shampoo to minimize breakage and that has helped with thicker hair too. Another product I like is Emergencee 1-2 times a month. I have a permanent color so it helps to do it more often. The minimized breakage helps the hair appear thicker. Surge 14 is another great product for thin edges. My mother had thin edges due to hypertension medication, but they have totally come back with the help of Surge 14.

I think that patience with a supplement and Surging routine would lead to good results.

Regular drug store Castor oil grew the nape of my neck from 0 to about 9 inches. This took about 1 year, but it works.

I've always heard rave reviews about Organic Root Stimulator Fertilizing Temple Balm. I've also heard great things about the Uplifting Shampoo by the same company.
