This is a VERY common problem, almost everyone including the super model Naomi Campbell has suffered from it but some have it a lot worse than others. Hair gets thinner or breaks around the edges for three main reasons:
1. Don't wear anything too tightly around your head.
Hair growth and health requires the delivery of nutrients and oxygen through the blood stream to the scalp. This delivery will not be obstructed if:
2. Speak to your stylist if they're pulling too tight
3. Don't tie your hair up too tightly
4. Give extra moisture to hair around the sides
Envirionmental factors, such as wind, dry hair around the outside more than hair that is more centrally located. You need to compensate for this by giving peripheral hair more moisture, e.g. using a shea butter based cream or butter and locking that in with an oil.
5. Massage the edges regularly...
...to stimulate the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the affected areas. A good oil, e.g. Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator will make this massaging more effective. Put a shower cap over your head for 15 minutes to maximise absorption of the essential oils.
6. Take care with the face scrubs, face creams and foundations!
Finally, when you're having a bath/shower or putting on makeup protect the hair from those chemicals; don't rub the forefront more than is necessary with these cosmetics.

Thanks alot, I so needed this. My edges have always been thin but more so in the last 6 months. I don't use gels & twist my hair every night so maybe my scarf was too tight. Idk

Hello... so I recently went back to wearing braids after past bad experiences with hair loss around the edges due to too tight pulling. And again at 34 my edges have been pulled out. Is it possible that I can do anything to regrow my edges back ever in a reasonable time frame? Thank you!
