How To Deal With Thinning Edges: My Balding Experience

I’ve never been one who pays special attention to my edges. On the contrary, I struggle to keep my edges from uniting with my eyebrows. Don’t start to envy me just yet, there’s more.

About 3 months ago,  I noticed my edges were falling, fading, balding, whatever else that describes passing away.  I grew really worried and decided to look into my hair care routine in a bid to figure out what could possibly  have gone wrong.

At this point I had to drop a few habits and adopt some others. 

How did I fix it?

  • Reduced manipulation around my hairline
  • Stopped using my edge control gel
  • Stopped wearing my hair in high puffs
  • Started massaging the affected area twice a day with my handmade coconut oil and raw shea butter
  • Applied onion juice to the affected area on wash days

Although my hair is short now, there has been noticeable progress in less than one month.
