How to regrow your edges damaged by wearing weaves
Ran across this article on how to regrow your edges from this site, thought you guys may find this helpful:
My first suggestion would be to lay off any style that may pull too tightly at your edges. So in addition to removing sew ins from your styling routine, I would eliminate any braided or twisted style that puts tension on your edges in any way. You also want to try avoiding styles like slicked back ponytails because this can weaken your edges as well. Try going with low manipulation styles instead.
As far as products go, I would go with anything that your dermatologist recommends. What you are going through sounds like it may be a form of alopecia, however being that I am not a physician you should consult a professional to have them diagnosis you.
Be very cautious when wearing any sort of style that applies too much tension as this may cause traction alopecia, “This is a small or localized hair loss area caused by repetitive or persistent pulling or force on hair roots. Tight braids and ponytails can pull hard enough on hairs to make them fall out. If this happens, it’s best to choose hairstyles that put less tension on hair. The sooner this is done the better to avoid permanent damage.”
A professional will have to evaluate the severity of the condition. While I love to suggest natural products the best bet is getting access to medicated solutions that have some proven record of producing results.
According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation,there seems to be more treatment options available for mild, patchy alopecia (less than 50% scalp hair loss). However, there are fewer options for those who have extensive hair loss (greater than 50%). This includes Cortisone Injections, Topical Minoxidil, and Anthralin cream or ointment.
