I read your story about how you nursed your mother’s edges back to AMAZING health on the BGLH website, and I wanted to tell you that I am sooo inspired by this story and commitment. In addition, this brings me to my second point: I was wondering if you cared to share what EXACTLY you did to do this (i.e. what products, what you did on full treatment days, etc.). Unfortunately, I too suffer from traction alopecia and have very thinned and even balding spots, and am at a loss of what to do. I have visited dermatologists, but I would rather try a natural solution than use some of the treatments that they are offering (steroid shots, etc.). Lastly, I know this is a lot, but I would greatly appreciate it and am looking forward to checking out the rest of your blog!
Hey and thanks for the email! If you check the original post, regrow edges in 5 months, I posted her regimen. It went something like this
“So the plan in short was JBCO (Jamaican black castor oil) every night and moisturize and seal the rest of her hair while it was in the tracks. Well when we took it down, we did a full day of hair treatments. Shampoo, protein treatment, deep condition, moisturize and seal and style.”
That’s basically it hun! The biggest part in all of this is to massage the scalp with it every night. It really makes a big difference!
