Weave Glue Caused Bald Edges!
Q: Hi I need desperate advice! Weave glue caused my edges to be pulled out. The front of my head is shiny!
Help me, I'm scared but I cant stop wearing my weave because everyone will see my bald patches!
What do I do? Help me please!
A: I'm really sorry to hear about what's going on with your hair and scalp.
You can repair it and have the hair grow back but you're going to have to make some serious changes and have patience while the hairline grows back in.
The first thing you need to do is stop getting your weave put in with glue. You can still wear hair extensions if you want to but stick to methods that are easier on your hair and scalp like a quick weave or a lace front wig.
I know the lacefront wigs aren't the cheapest thing in the world but they look great and don't damage your own hair so it's a worthwhile investment.
You need to give your hair a break from anything that could possibly stress your scalp out.
Then it might help to start using something to stimulate new growth around your edges.
One thing that works very well is Jamaican Castor oil. The dark kind that doesn't smell so wonderful (it really works though!)
Use it to massage your edges every night and over time your edges will come back.
After your hair does recover, forget about weave glue all together because using it will likely put you back to square one.
