I took down my sew-in during the weekend and discovered that my edges are thinning. Alopecia and thinning hairlines run in my family and I’ve inherited it too. The stress of a full-head weave on my edges was not helping my hairline; in fact, it was making it worse. Because of this, I am giving my hair a little time to relax, rejuvenate, and re-grow. This sounds good in theory, but I am having the toughest time styling my hair in a manner that will not put stress on my edges.
What suggestions do you have to take the stress off my thinning edges? What hairstyles do you rock when your hair needs a breather between sew-ins and braids?
