1. Leave Your Edges Alone
This is going to seem simple but . . . do not make the problem worse.
One of the simplest way to stop your hairline from thinning is to stop wearing tight hairstyles: tight ponytails, buns, braids, sew-ins.
I know it can be hard to let go of your “go-to” styles but the constant tension is part of the reason why your hairline may be receding. If you’re itching for your favorite protective style try to rock those braids while leaving your fragile baby hairs out.
Of course, we want our style to last (especially if we spent a ton of money on the installation), but the tighter the style, the more tension you are applying to your scalp and those fragile edges cannot tolerate it.
Face the facts: you know when the style is too tight and often overlook it when trying to regrow your edges.
If you’re unsure of “what’s too tight” just consider that if you see small bumps around your hairline or if it is hard for you to smile or laugh without experiencing pain, then the style is too tight.
