It’s no secret that many Black women deal with how to cover a receding hairline. And thin hairlines are also problematic for Black women. In general, ‘edges’ have become a separate element in the Black hair care market.
In fact, the two main products in this category are (1) edge control and (2) edge regrowth. So, is this an indication that we’re controlling our edges to the point that they need the regrowth products?
Reasons Why Women Have To Cover A Receding Hairline
According to the Journal of The American Academy Dermatology, traction alopecia (TA) is often attributed to certain hairstyling practices. While this may be true, it’s only part of the story.
When you think about it, 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 understands and knows how to do an install, the result is not traction alopecia. And they’ll know the best way to cover a receding hairline if it’s already prevalent prior to providing the service.
Some of the causes of a receding 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 receding hairline or thinning hair.
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 especially 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.
