9 Steps to Reverse Age Related Hair Loss

At 38, I thought my biggest beauty dilemma was fighting the fine lines that were starting to flaunt themselves upon my still youthful, but aging face. Face cream, the simple solution. With so many choices in today’s world of vanity, it’s almost a non-issue.

So, you might be able to imagine, the heart stopping moment, when I realized that my once luscious locks were vanishing into thin hair! It had become obvious that the root of my problem was my body’s demand for better attention to my overall health.

A quick glance in the mirror one evening showed that the crown of my head was quickly becoming the thinnest of them all. How did this happen? I quickly decided to take action. Now I understood, the desired crown on my princess head was never that of jewels, but of long, flowing tussles.

The Story of the Disappearing Edges

How We Lost Our Edges and How to Make them Grow Back

Here’s a story that I know a lot of ladies can relate to …

Back in the day my friends and I were very particular about our hairlines. We smoothed fingerfulls of thick, cool to the touch, brown styling gel on the hair that grew along our temples and used small toothed combs to create designs and little finger waves.

We made sure our “kitchen”, or the short hairs along the nape of the neck, were nap, kink and curl free in similar fashion. Our pony tails, French rolls and buns were “fried, dyed and laid to the side”, as they say. We were following the trends of the 1990’s – trends that left no room for our natural hair textures. Most often, any girl whose natural, afro textured hair was showing got laughed at.

What is Protective Styling?

What is Protective Styling?

Coarse, type 4, afro textured natural hair is a wonderful hair texture.

On the plus side, it can be straightened, curled, braided and worn in an infinite amount of cuts and colors. It’s just amazing that way but, in all honesty, it has a downside too.

Coarse, afro textured hair can take forever to detangle and even longer to air dry after it has been washed. Straightened type 4 hair curls back up at the very hint of moisture in the air and, as if all of that isn’t bad enough, chronic dryness and tangled curls and kinks can make breakage a nightmare. 

That’s where protective styling comes in – it takes all of the negatives and makes them much easier to deal with.

Are you suffering from hair loss or thinning hair along your hairline, near the temples or elsewhere on your scalp?

If you have worn tightly braided hairstyles, ponytails or any other hairstyle that has caused your hair to pull tightly away from your scalp, you may be suffering from a condition called traction alopecia. defines traction alopecia as a small or localized hair loss area caused by repetitive pulling or force on the hair roots. According to the medical website, tight braids and ponytails can pull hard enough on hairs to make them fall out.

Damage Report: Does Going Natural Instantly Repair Hair Damage?

When I began the process of transitioning my hair was a mess.

It was long, just about bra strap length in the back, but it was over processed and as a result, paper thin.

To make matters worse, after having my son my hair began to thin even more and I was at a loss for what to do.

I can painfully recall having an event to attend and deciding to do a sew in. I decided to leave my hair out in the front for a more natural look and worked fast so that I could make it out of the house on time.
