What’s that saying? — “You never miss it until it’s gone” — well, that applies to edges too! You don’t know how much you love your edges until you lose them; especially when it’s out of your control. I didn’t lose my edges to weaves, tight braids or a high ponytail — I had a baby.
If you’re a mother or have been around a pregnant woman, you know how crazy and out of wack your hormones get throughout the 9 month journey into motherhood. As your hormones try to return to “normal” and your body adjusts, a common side effect is hair loss. Seriously, almost 40% of women experience postpartum hair loss. Thankfully, a year later, my edges are finally growing back naturally!
How To Regrow Edges Naturally
I attribute my hair growth to four things in my life: clean eating, increasing scalp blood flow, low tension styles/manipulation, and magic in a bottle — The Alikay Naturals Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil. I truly believe the majority of the growth in my edges had to do with the Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil because the other 3 factors have been constant in my life pre & post pregnancy. I use the Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil on an almost daily basis and I’d say within two months I started to notice a difference in my overall hair growth; particularly on my edges. For a mother experiencing postpartum hair loss or any type of thinning hair, I recommend the Alikay Naturals Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil!
