There is something about having a full head of hair that everyone loves. For the most part, it is the first thing we notice about a person. From whether it’s long and luscious or if it is short and funky, healthy hair is noticeable. What is also noticeable is unhealthy hair! Hair that is damaged… especially our edges. This section of our hair is the weakest and touched almost everyday. From being pulled out by too tight protective styles, heat damage, or even edge control, a lot of of women have had to find ways to repair their edges at one point of time in their life.

Here are 5 remedies that can help you grow your edges back!

Castor Oil


This thick substance has been used to treat many things and hair repair is one of them! Whether you use it straight from the bottle or mix it with coconut oil, it is able to repair all types of hair. Try using it 3-4 times a week for the best results.

Other Essential Oils

Our hair loves oils, but if you take a look at the average woman’s bathroom we may only find 1 or 2, which are rarely used. Oils like castor oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, carrots seed oil and lavender oil are a few oils that promote hair growth. Try getting samples of a few to see which one works best for you!

Scalp Massages


We can’t stress the importance of giving yourself a scalp massage because the blood and follicles of your scalp need to be stimulated for ultimate hair growth. You can use any products of your choice but using one of the above oils will definitely be effective. If you do not like having heavy oils on your hair, massage them into your scalp the morning of or one hour before you wash your hair.

Use Natural Products


You may think that your hair products are the only thing touching your hair but what about your face cleanser and makeup? These products constantly touch our edges and often go unnoticed when they do. Make sure you try to stay away from placing products on your edges while you are growing them back. Look for natural ways to exfoliate, clean and prep your face!
