Reclaiming Your Edges: Tips for Restoring and Protecting Your Hairline

by Sharon Marongere 22 May 2024 0 Comments

Hair is an integral part of our identity, and for many individuals with curly and afro-textured hair, thinning edges can be particularly distressing. What can we do to avoid thinning edges and if needed to restore our hairlines and to prevent further damage.

Causes of Thinning Edges

Knowing the root causes of thinning edges is usually the first step. One of the primary culprits is tight hairstyles. Braids, weaves, and ponytails that exert excessive tension on the hairline can lead to breakage and hair loss. The constant pulling and stress weaken the hair follicles, causing the edges to thin over time.

Another significant factor is overstyling. The frequent use of heat tools, chemical relaxers, and harsh styling products can strip the hair of its natural oils, weakening its structure and leading to breakage. These practices can be particularly damaging to curly and afro-textured hair, which is naturally more fragile.

Friction is also a common cause, regular rubbing against rough surfaces, such as cotton pillowcases or certain types of hats, can cause breakage. The hairline, being more delicate, is especially susceptible to this type of damage.

Lastly, overall health and nutrition play a critical role in hair health. A poor diet, high levels of stress, and hormonal imbalances can negatively impact hair growth and strength. I personally experienced my edges thinning as a postpartum response after my daughter was born. Ensuring that the body receives adequate nutrients and managing stress effectively are essential for maintaining healthy hair.

Methods for Restoring Edges

Once the causes of thinning edges are identified, the next step is to adopt practices that promote restoration and regrowth. Try to give the hair a break from tension, opting for loose hairstyles that do not pull on the hairline allows the hair to recover.

Moisturising and nourishing the hair is another crucial step. Keeping the edges hydrated with leave-in conditioners or natural oils can significantly improve their health. Our Mauyu Nourishing Hair Serum is the perfect addition to your routine, our beautiful ingredients which include Baobab, Jojoba, Coconut and Rosemary.

Protecting your hair while sleeping is so essential. Use a silk or satin pillowcase or scarf or bonnet to reduce friction and help maintain moisture. This simple change can make a significant difference in the health of the hairline.

Be gentle when styling your hair. Using a soft-bristle brush or fingers to style the edges can be a game changer when preventing  breakage. Also avoiding heavy gels and opting for lightweight edge controls can help maintain the integrity of the hair. Minimising the use of heat tools and chemical treatments is another vital step. These practices can severely damage the hair, so it is best to use them sparingly and always with protective measures, such as applying a heat protectant.

Preventing Further Damage

To prevent further damage and maintain healthy edges,there are other things you can do. Rotating hairstyles regularly and avoiding those that put stress on the hairline,  ensuring a diet rich in vitamins and minerals is essential. And finally managing stress is also crucial, as chronic stress can impact hair health. Engaging in stress-relieving activities such as yoga, meditation, or simply taking time for self-care can benefit both overall well-being and hair health.


Reclaiming thinning edges requires a combination of understanding the causes, adopting restorative practices, and preventing further damage. By giving the hair a break from tension, moisturising and nourishing it, protecting it while sleeping, and being gentle when styling, individuals can effectively restore their hairline.
