Thin Edges

Kay_dubbKay_dubb Posts: 36Registered Users
Does anyone have a secret remedy for curing thinning edges? It's been 2 months since I've been natural and I haven't seen any growth in my edges. I put shea butter on it but it's just not growing. HELP!!!

    I have very fine hair on my edges. Since January 2012 I have been using lumagen (generic latisse) on my edges with very good results. I had been using latisse on my eyelashes for a few years and then I read a few articles about how it helps grow hair in other places. I started using it on my eye brows and got dramatic improvement on brow thickness. Then I tried putting it on my hairline and presto! The edges have filled in and they are not as thin. Latisse can be very expensive. I asked my Dr if she would prescribe Lumagin (the original eye drop that they created latisse from) same product but I get 3 bottles that are twice as big for $50. I was paying $100 for one bottle of latisse that was half the size (one month supply).

    You might also try a satin or silk pillow case. My hair used to break off in the front because of the cotton blend pillow cases I used to use.

    Hope this helps!

    Oh I just made my own hair growth mix of ingredients I heard that helps with hair growth. You don't have to copy the whole recipe, but you could mix and match.

    Castor oil - helps with hair growth and thickening

    Rosemary oil - stimulates the scalp and has some anti-something (viral, oxidant, can't remember)

    Olive oil - penetrates hair, softens, moisturizing

    Lavender oil - nice smell, stimulates?

    Cinnamon - stimulates

    Tea tree oil - helps with dandruff, stimulates, anti-something

    Sunflower oil - has ceramides, seals

    Avocado oil - penetrates, moisturizes

    Coconut oil - strengthens hair

    Msm powder - hair growth

    Crushed biotin pills - grows + thickens

    Sesame oil - don't remember

    Peppermint - stimulates

    Aloe vera gel - moisturizes and other stuff I can't remember

    I'm still on a hunt for some of the ingredients, but here's what I heard helps.
