Hi Kurly Kichana,
I need your help. I don't have natural hair but I would like your advise on what to do to my temple hair. It is really weak whilst the rest of my hair is strong. Things went south when I braided my hair. Is there a sure fire way of growing it back.
Thanks a milli.
The Kurlies Say:
Hi hun! The hair around our edges is extremely very weak and susceptible to traction alopecia and thus we should be very careful. Too much braiding can result in very weak, thinned out edges.
We suggest you make sure there is no stress on your edges. Do this for as long as (3-6 months, or longer depending on the damage) you can so that your hair can grow back over time. Avoid tight ponytails, micro-braids, tight weaves and other stressful hairstyles. One remedy we would recommend is a simple mix of peppermint oil mixed with castor oil. This will be good treat for your edges and will aid regrowth.
Another product we would recommend is the ORS Temple Balm. It contains a fertilizing serum that stimulates hair growth. You can find it at Super Cosmetics and Beauty Options for about KES 600/- (last we checked). Works wonders it does...
