4 Reasons Your Edges are thinning or breaking
Scarves/ Hats – Satin scarves are often used as part of the night time routine to maintain styles and protect the hair. Many of these scarves have elastic bands around the rim that create friction at the hairline. This friction will contributes to your disappearing edges. A similar situation can be seen with hats. Hats, despite being stylish also can create friction at the hairline which can also result in damage and thinning edges. It may be best to seek out scarves that do not carry the elastic band and cover your hair before wearing the hats to avoid friction. (Scarf pictured www.ayamour.co.uk)
Excessive Brushing – Let’s be honest, some naturals become a bit obsessed with taming their edges. Sleek, nicely laid flat edges are desired for most styles. This results in many utilising the brush in an attempt to tame their hairline to fit this desired look. However this type of manipulation causes stress on already delicate hairlines which is of even more concern for those who have a finer hair type.
