It’s common knowledge that many Black women deal with how to cover a thinning hairline. And receding hairlines are also an issue for Black women. Meanwhile, ‘edges’ have become a separate segment in the Black hair care market.
As can be seen by online ads, the main products in this category are (1) edge control and (2) edge regrowth. So, does this mean that we’re controlling our edges to the point that they need the regrowth products?
Reasons Why Women Have To Cover A Thinning Hairline
The Journal of The American Academy Dermatology did a survey. It showed that traction alopecia (TA) is often attributed to certain hairstyling practices. Although this may be true, there’s more to it than that.
It’s important to realize that almost anything that’s meant to be a good thing can turn out bad. This is because it’s either overused or not used correctly. And in the case of Black women hairstyling practices, when TA is the result, the style was not done correctly.
The point is, when a professional stylist is skilled doing an install, the result is not traction alopecia. Plus, they’ll know the best way to cover a thinning hairline if it’s already prevalent prior to providing the service.
Some of the causes of a thinning hairline or thinning edges include:
1. Heredity – Genetics play a role in many areas of our body. From a person’s eye color to diseases a person is prone to. And genetics is a factor in a thinning hairline.
2. Weaves – Weave glue can indirectly causing damage to the scalp by causing an allergic reaction. It can also damage the hair follicles directly by pulling on the hair. The preferred method for weave installs at our Uptown New York Style salon is sew-ins. And we’re particularly careful not to braid tight so as not to place tension on the follicles.
3. Tight Hairstyles – While a high ponytail has been popular for several years now, it can cause permanent hair loss. How? Because you’ll want that slick back look with your edges neat and flat. And to accomplish this, many women often pull the hair too tight.
