osing your edges happens to the best of us at different points in our lives and there are several reasons why this could occur, like stress, tight hairstyles, and over-relaxing the hair. Models with well laid edges don’t seem to pacify this issue as you scroll through your social media feeds and low key wonder what they’re doing right that you aren’t, especially when your home is filled with countless haircare products.
It’s not in every situation that desperate times call for desperate measures. Sometimes, letting your struggling edges be might be all it needs for revitalization and growth. Surrender your hot straightening iron and chemical rich hair products while accepting that maybe retreating to hairstyles that grow edges would heal your hairline. This doesn’t mean that hair products are not important, it simply means that certain products should be avoided and others kept at minimal. It is also important to use products that work for your hair type and make protective hairstyles your preferred route.
Check out 5 stylish hairstyles that are proven to grow your edges…
#1. Bantu knots
This is one protective hairstyle that does a fantastic job at protecting both the edges and ends and can also hide the two hair textures when transitioning to natural hair. They are also inexpensive saving a girl some much needed bucks.
#2. Sleek backs
This might sound ironical because the sleek back style exposes thinned out edges instead of concealing them but frankly, if the goal is to grow edges back then nothing gives your hair peace of mind than letting it be. Sleek back reduces pressure on the hairline and still leaves you looking natural and stunning.
Cornrows are beautiful, neat looking, and can be worn to every event. Ensure you wear a satin bonnet before sleep time to keep everything in check. You can’t be too careful.
#4. Crochet braids
Crochet braids, when installed properly, put a great deal of other hairstyles to shame. They are edgy, stylish and a trusted hairstyle that grows edges.
#5. Afro buns
This hairstyle is especially apt for women on natural hair or with an afro, but is not exclusive to them alone. Make it more fun by parting them into two big buns. There are two words to describe this hairstyle: fun and beautiful.
- Wigs: Obviously, we all know what’s underneath every wig are simple cornrows. This is so convenient for you and your edges because now you can switch between stunning styles and let your hair breathe.
- Ensure your stylist doesn’t make your hair too tight to avoid hair loss.
Protective hairstyles that grow edges can only do their part, the rest is up to you.
