How To Fix Dry Edges

How To Fix Dry Edges

Hey beautiful, let's talk about that pesky dry scalp at your hairline. I mean, seriously, it's got to go!

Dealing with a dry scalp can be a hassle on its own, but when it's right there for everyone to see - like at your hairline - it becomes even more of a challenge. But don't worry, we've got this! First things first, let's figure out what might be causing this issue.

Have you checked your facial cleanser? You know how sometimes we think we rinsed off all the soap from our face but end up leaving some near our ears and hairline? Well, if your facial cleanser is full of drying chemicals, it could be affecting your hairline.

Oh, and have you noticed any hard water stains? If you're seeing white residue on your dishes, chances are you're dealing with hard water. And guess what? Hard water can mess with your hair and cause dryness in the scalp. Consider using a water softener or incorporating distilled water into your hair care routine for some relief.

Now let's talk moisturizing! Adding just a bit of oil won't do the trick. Try applying some liquid (like water or leave-in conditioner) first and then seal in that moisture with an oil or butter. Trust me on this one!

And speaking of moisture...we often focus so much on moisturising our ends that we forget about our scalps! Don't neglect that precious area – give it some love too.

Did you recently start using new products? Sometimes certain shampoos can have ingredients that don't agree with our skin and cause dryness. Make sure to rinse thoroughly before moving on to conditioning.

Now let's talk hairstyles – those sleek buns and braids may look amazing but if they're pulling too tightly on the hairline...ouch! Not only can they lead to breakage but also dryness and breakouts. So, be mindful of the tension and avoid styling too tightly.

Now, let's get into some treatments! Scalp exfoliation is like taking your cleansing routine to the next level. You can use a combination of oils and sugar to remove product buildup while providing moisture to your scalp. It's a game-changer!

And if you're sure it's just dryness at the hairline (not dandruff), oil treatments might be your best friend. After cleansing and conditioning, apply your favorite oil directly to the area using a bottle with a nozzle tip – olive or castor oils work wonders which are both found in our Hair Strenthening Oil! Let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing out. Voila!

If you feel like this is becoming chronic or just need some expert advice, consider visiting a dermatologist or trichologist who can examine your scalp closely and offer personalised solutions.

You've got this, girl! Say goodbye to that dry hairline and hello to healthy, happy scalp days ahead!
