Best Product to regrow Edges?

Hey guys, I wanted to know what the best product is thats on the market to help regrow my temple area (edges). I was using cold pressed castor oil for about 4 months and Ive just decided to switch to the JBCO (jamaican black castor oil) that was being advertised more online.
Ive also heard about Dr. Miracles temple and nape balm and I rmr using that back in the day but never stuck with it long enough to see results.

Would love some input..thanks!

    Just baby your edges and don't do too many styles that pull on them. Jbco is really good for some people, but I hated it myself and so do some others. Just try it and see if it works for you.
    No product is properly going to regrow them if you don't baby them and look after them well though. Tbh, you can even grow them without any special product if you just look after them.

    Don't mean to hijack your thread, but without going to the doctor, is there any way to tell if the hair loss is perm? I haven't had edges since childhood. I'm hate to spend time and money on something that's just not going to happen.

    Do you ever have anything growing? Like even one short strand sometimes growing? If it's not totally smooth like normal skin, it's more likely you can grow them back.

    If it's not from pulling your back tightly and frequently or chemicals, then it may be alopecia. I agree with Scrills about seeing a doctor if you don't have any of the behaviors that lead to losing this type of hair. I know among type 4 women that having no edges is common because of tight hairstyles and chemicals. Many women have had success with castor oil but it all takes some time, like six months to fully grow back.

    I lost the hair around my temples from stress, thinning shears, and constantly pulling my hair back. I went CG and changed to a healthier diet, and no one could ever tell I once was missing my hair. However, I think I had alopecia.

    Nope, I don't think so. Maybe I will take a picture of it. And i haven't relaxed since 2003 and I wear shake and go's 95% of the time so I'm not pulling too tight.

    I guess there is some hair there, but very thin and some smooth sections. It is like this on both sides and in the back. I get never get a tapered cut when I was in high school (sad face)

    What is cause of the hair loss? Yiu hide it really well because I have never noticed it in your photos before.

    I feel like I haven't had them since childhood, so I would guess too tight ponytails. maybe I should check some baby/childhood pictures of mine and see

    You prob never noticed, but I never wear ponytails or up styles. always a shake and go. So it's less noticeable because the other hair covers it

    in general, non-surgical treatments include

    1. Weekly treatments of Corticosteroid injections with kenalog/triamcinolone into the skin to stimulate growth--

    2. Also, For natural treatment of mild to moderate hairloss try 7-12 months of daily use of the alopecia blend AND also incorporating alternating each week with 7-days (morning and night) use a piece, each of :
    a) Daily use of Alopecia oil blend (rosemary eo + lavender eo + thyme-white eo + cedarwood atlas eo in a carrier oil base combo-blend of pure Grapeseed oil and jojoba oil (used morning and night ) --layered underneath a light amount of - a1. Tropic Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil (used morning and night daily or every other day for 7days) AND then 7days use of - a2. Emu Oil layered ontop of the Alopecia oil blend (used morning and night daily or every other day for 7days--and then back to JBCO plus Alopecia oil blend combo and so forth)...
    a3. Also restore sulfur levels to regrow hair naturally with onion juice each week. Deep condition hair with onion juice pre-shampoo treatment ovenight each week for several months ... Do this in conjunction with the JBCo+Alopecia Oil Blend + Emu oil treatment/s for about 10months -to-
    1 year...
    You can do a search on Google or Youtube for more information on these techniques.

    The studies where this worked this was done consistently for 8-12 months or so to see results.

    3. For more difficult hairloss issues/in the event that no improvement is seen after 10-12months, or it has been persistent for over 1 year or longer with no change/improvement, then hair restoration surgery is an option. high-graft specialists (3000grafts or more per session) include Dr. John Diep (mhtaclinic.com) and Dr. Sanusi Umar (dermhairclinic.com) as well.

    It is important to note that women should NOT use Minoxidil or Finesteride products as they cause permanent hormonal side effects (including permanent facial hair and birth defects) when used on women...

    Good luck!
