How to take care of hair edges

The hair edges are the most fragile part of our hair. They frame the face but break so easily, this is why it is really important to protect them. It takes time to get the hair edges looking healthy but once you start giving it some attention, it blossoms. Here are some ways to help take care of your hair edges:

Do not use heat

I haven’t used heat on my hair in years and my hair thanks me for it. If you want to grow your edges back, one way to do this is to stop using heat. The hair edges are the most fragile part of your hair. If you want to take good care of them, you should apply no heat to your hair edges.

Deep condition your hair

Deep conditioning your hair regularly is a great way to grow your hair (and the edges). You can deep condition your hair twice a month or as often as your hair needs. This will help keep your hair strong and healthy.

Moisturise the hair edges

It is important to moisturise your hair on a daily basis. The hair edges are the most vulnerable part of the hair so they need extra moisture. I moisturise my entire hair with natural coconut oils and focus a bit more on the edges.

Protect your hair while you sleep

Now this tip is a big one for many of us because our fragile hair edges could get damaged while we sleep. I always wrap my hair in a silk scarf and bonnet for extra protection before I sleep. I make sure I tie the scarf on my forehead and not on the edges to avoid friction. Also, I sleep on silk pillowcases.

Ease off on wigs and protective hair styles

Sometimes it is important to give the hair a break from protective hairstyles and wigs. Just letting the hair be in a loose hair style is a great way to nourish and protect the hair edges. Also, when you do decide to put your hair in a protective style, you can leave out the hair edges to preserve them.

What is CBD?

For those who are wondering what CBD stands for, it stands for Cannabidiol, and it is a naturally-occurring chemical compound found in cannabis plants. CBD is usually extracted as a powder and then mixed with a carrier oil like grapeseed, olive, or coconut. CBD oil is well known for its healing properties. The oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits which are great for treating skin issues like inflammation, acne, eczema, psoriasis, dryness, and more. CBD for skincare products is a great idea. The benefits are numerous and there are now many options available.

Here are a few of the best CBD oils in the beauty market –

Reasons to have or not to have cosmetic surgery

I have never had cosmetic surgery before and I don’t plan to but I have played with the idea a few times. Many people have had some form of cosmetic surgery done. It is very common with celebrities and Instagram stars these days. So many people are obsessed with the perfect look. They want all their features looking their best and if any is not looking as good, they fix it. Do I blame them? Not at all. I am not one to judge especially when it comes to personal things like cosmetic surgery. However, it is always good to be honest when you get some work done though. My issue with many of these “stars” is that they try to pass the new features off as natural, which sends the wrong message out to their fans.

For me, if you have cosmetic surgery done, own up to it especially to those who look up to you. If you are an everyday woman, you don’t need to tell anyone you are not comfortable telling, but celebs don’t have that same privilege and anyone with any sort of huge following does not as well. I see many social media stars going on about privacy after they have undergone some sort of cosmetic surgery, usually full lips or a new pair of boobs. These new features will be impossible to miss and it is unfair and even misleading to try to make them appear natural when it is clear they are not.

I have nothing against cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery is useful to have around. It is good to know there are cosmetic treatments available if we ever need it. I have had a couple of cosmetic treatments like microdermabrasion and I blogged about it on Fashion and Style Police. Those mini beauty treatments are my favourite kind of skincare treats and I love having them.

I just don’t want cosmetic surgery

Like I said, I played around with the idea of having some work done ages ago. That thought quickly vanished. The thought of going under the knife for a cosmetic reason will never make sense to me, but maybe that is because I am very happy with my body and I love the skin I am in, along with all the features, both perfect and imperfect.

Reasons to have cosmetic surgery

The fact that I don’t want them anymore doesn’t stop me from understanding why others would like to have some work done on them. As I said, I am not one to judge. Besides, many people may have real physical disfigurement through birth, illness or accident, and want to improve their appearance. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve your features, just ensure you are doing it for the right reasons and that the surgery is worth the reasons. Going under the knife is no joke. I had a Caesarean section with the twins, so I have a good idea of what it means to go under the knife. Think long and hard before you make up your mind.

Reasons to not have cosmetic surgery

It might go wrong. This is the major reason and risk you have to be prepared to take. You will be signing your life away before you go under. Cosmetic surgeries are also very expensive. Many people are unable to afford it even if they want it. Many people also have to deal with the aftermath of having the surgery done. It is a Catch-22 kind of thing. You are dammed if you admit to having the surgery done (you look so vain) and dammed if you don’t admit (you look vain and stupid for thinking people won’t notice).

At the end of the day, the choice is yours and there is no right or wrong way of looking at it. It all depends on what matters to you and what you want.
