How to Take Care of Your Edges

Ladies with curly hair know what a struggle it is to tame our edges.

If you’re not sure what I mean by edges, they’re the baby hairs that grow along the hairline. They’re pretty sensitive. So if you’re not careful you’ll end up breaking the hair along your hairline. Due to their sensitive nature, they require a lot more tender love and care than other parts of your hair.

Here are 5 easy ways you can take care of your edges and keep them healthy.

 

  1. Don’t tug on your edges

The edges are so delicate that tugging on your edges could cause them to break off easily. I know that it can be tempting to play with the baby hairs because they’re so soft. Sometimes we absent-mindedly play with the gentle curls of our edges. But you could save your edges when you try as much as possible to avoid tugging at them.

 

  1. Avoid protective styles that are too tight

Protective styles are great to help promote hair growth and protect your hair from harsh weather conditions.

But some protective styles can be a huge strain on your edges especially when they are done too tightly. Tight protective styles could break the baby hairs on your hairline.

To prevent your protective styles from putting so much strain on your edges, leave the edges out when doing your protective styles. That will help protect those edges.

 

  1. Moisturise your edges

Moisture is not only wonderful for your skin. It’s also great for your edges.

The moisture helps prevent your edges from drying out. When your edges are dry, they become brittle and break at a single touch. But regularly applying a good moisturizing cream or oils will not only strengthen your edges, it will also help promote hair growth.

When you’re moisturizing your hair it is possible to leave the edges out. So next time you’re applying moisturizer in your hair make sure that you give your edges some special treatment by deliberately applying a good hair cream or oil.

  1. Wrap your hair at night to protect your edges

Did you know that your edges could break when your hair rubs against your pillow while you sleep? In addition to that, resting your hair on a cotton pillowcase could strip your hair off moisture. And you know what that means: dry edges = breakage.

To protect your hair as well as the baby hairs along your hairline, wrap your hair with a satin scarf or bonnet anytime you want to go to bed. The satin material will not only prevent your hair from drying out, it will also minimize friction which could break your hair.

 

  1. Avoid using heat and harsh chemicals on your hair

Applying heat directly on your hair could dry your hair out and this is bad news for your edges. Harsh chemicals have the same effect on your edges as well. Some women who subject their hair to heat or chemicals while straightening their hair, are more prone to experiencing breakage.

Try other styling methods instead of using flat irons or other tools that require heat. Also stay away from chemicals that are so harsh such that they dry out your hair super fast. Instead, stick with natural-based products that are gentle on your hair and give your hair the needed nourishment to be strong and healthy.

Beauty Muse – Porsha Williams

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star – Porsha Williams is the Beauty Muse today. I have always admired Porsha Williams’ pretty face. She does not look a day older than 21. This woman is blessed with a flawless skin and a very beautiful features, which is why she is a Beauty Muse on Fashion and Style Police.

I love Porsha Williams for her looks only. That sounds horrible I know, but I am not a fan of anything else about her. I am a huge fan of the reality show she features in, and I have watched it for many years. So I know a lot about her personality and character on the show. I don’t like the way she carries herself in general but she is good entertainment. All episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta are currently showing on Amazon Prime, if you want to see what the show is all about.

But back to Porsha Williams as a Beauty Muse. This woman is a natural beauty. I have seen many photos of her with a makeup free face and she still looks very beautiful. Her makeup game has massively improved over the years. I love how she applies her makeup especially on her eyebrows. Her makeup makes the most of her facial features, and her eye makeup is always flawless.

In an interview, Williams explained why she likes to focus on her eye makeup –

 

“I love to play up my eyes. I have always had big eyes! Because of that, I like to wear winged eyeliner and a nice, thick brow since it brings them out. Plus, I have my dad’s eyes who has since passed away, but from time-to-time, I look in the mirror and see him. It’s a heart-warming feeling to have such a strong feature of someone I love so much.”

 

She does have big beautiful eyes, and her thick brows highlight them the more.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Lancôme Hypnôse Homme Eau de Toilette

As a fragrance lover, I am forever in search of the next scent to get obsessed with. I do like men’s perfumes as well, so I was eager to try Lancôme  Hypnôse Homme the other day. This masculine scent is a blend of Cardamom and Mint. It was created by Maurice Roucel in 2007 and the bottle caught my attention as soon as I set my eyes on it. It is quite captivating design for a perfume bottle.

This fragrance is based on a fresh lavender and amber harmony. The musky scent reminds me of masculine man. It is one of those scents you either love or hate. I love.
