Posted on May 26 2017
Many of us know the struggle of losing hair on the hairline. Perhaps it’s time you re-evaluate your routine when it comes to your hair and figure out what could be causing serious damage to your hairline. We are going to cover a few tips to not only stop but also regrow a receding hairline.
- Avoid strong chemicals
Hair products that have strong chemicals will cause your hairline to thin. One common culprit is alcohol that is commonly found in hairfood Strong relaxers and dyes can burn your hair from the roots so always avoid using them.
- Use natural hair oils
Massage the hairline using natural hair oils to rejuvenate and strengthen the area. Castor oil, coconut oil, olive oil and argan oil are great options.
- Use a polyester/silk pillow case instead of scarf
What you wear on your head while you sleep can damage your hairline especially if tied tightly. Sleep in a polyester (satin, chiffon, charmeuse) pillow case or if you have a polyester scarf, wrap it around your pillow instead of tying it on your head. It’s healthier than sleeping with a tight scarf all night.
- Avoid sleeping in a ponytail/bun
If your hairline is already sensitive, there’s no need to sleep with your hair wrapped in a ponytail. It will end up pulling the hair as you toss and turn at night. You can either plait it or leave it loose.
- Don’t stay with braids/twists for too long
Braids and twists can damage your sensitive hairline further especially if you have a habit of staying with them for too long.
- Avoid twists and braids that are too small and tight
They may look good but if you have a weak hairline, the small twists and braids are an absolute NO!
- Avoid over exposure to heat
If you expose your hairline to heat either by using hairdryers, flat irons and blow dryers, you are damaging it even further.
- Opt for thicker braids
Give your hair a break every once in a while and if you have to plait, opt for thicker braids that don’t pull the hairline.
- Always use a heat protector
If you have to use heating techniques on your hair, make sure you apply a heat protector. There are many lotions and hairfood oils that can be used to protect your hair from damage when exposed to heat.
10. Treatment and deep condition
