Help For Thinning Temple Area

Q: I have thinning edges. I want to know what can I do to grow the hair back.



A: First you have to figure out what is causing the hair to thin out.

You can't effectively treat a problem without know why it's happening so this is the best place to start.

- Are you wearing your hair tightly on a regular basis?
- Do you often get relaxers or is your hair natural?
- Do you wear braids often?
- Are you ill in any way?
- Does it run in your family?
- Is your scalp healthy?

Only after you can pinpoint what is going on with your scalp we can find a way to solve the problem.

Please get back to me with a response.

What Can I Do About My Thinning Edges?
by: Jasmine Shaw

My thinning comes from my mother. Is there still something that I can do about it, or am I stuck with it?

Camille's Answer:

Well to be honest, you're going to have a hard time stopping your hair from thinning if it's in your DNA. But you can do things to make your hair LOOK thicker (which is the ultimate goal right?).

Wearing curly styles, keeping your hair blunt cut and shorter all help to give your hair the appearance of being thicker.

If you have issues with thinning edges, the best thing yo use is some organic Castor oil to massage them a few times a week (if you can get real Jamaican Castor oil, even better). It stimulates your scalps follicles helping the hair to grow better.

Try not to focus on what you can't change (which is nature), and focus on what you can. Which is the way you style your hair. :)

What I Do To Grow My Child's Edges?
by: Anonymous

I think I'm pulling my daughter hair too tight around the edges it is thinning and have a bald spot. What can I do to help the edges grow in?


Camille's Answer:

Hi. the first thing is to stop pulling the hair tight. That alone and time will help the spots grow back in.

To help the hair come in faster and fuller you can rub the thin areas will organic Castor oil a few times a week. If you can get your hands on some Jamaican Castor oil even better.

Her hair will grow back, just be sure to stay away from tight hairstyles and braids. Traction Alopecia is the #1 cause of hair loss in black women (and kids)!
