How to Regrow Your Edges: Step-by-Step Guide


Thinning or receding edges can be a common concern for many individuals, and re-growing them requires a consistent and targeted approach. In this article, I will provide you with a comprehensive guide on how to regrow your edges and restore fullness to this delicate area of your hairline. With patience, care, and the right techniques, you can encourage regrowth and regain the confidence in your hairline.

Understanding the Causes of Thinning Edges:

Before delving into the regrowth process, it's essential to understand the potential causes of thinning edges. Some common factors include:

1. Wigs, Traction or Tension Hairstyles: Wearing wigs and tight hairstyles, such as braids, weaves, or ponytails, that exert excessive tension on the edges can lead to hair loss and thinning. 

2. Heat and Chemical Damage: Overuse of heat styling tools, harsh chemicals, relaxers, Wigs or improper handling of the hair can contribute to weakened and damaged edges.

3. Hormonal Imbalances and Medical Conditions: Hormonal changes, conditions like alopecia areata, and certain health issues can affect hair growth, including the edges.

Re-growing Your Edges: Step-by-Step Guide

1. Evaluate and Adjust Your Hairstyles:
Assess your hairstyling practices and avoid styles that cause tension or excessive pulling on your edges. Opt for looser, low manipulation styles that protect and promote healthy hair growth.

2. Be Gentle with Your Edges:
Handle your edges with care, avoiding unnecessary brushing, pulling, or harsh manipulation. Use a wide-toothed comb or a soft brush specifically designed for edges when styling.

3. Moisturize and Nourish:
Moisturize your edges regularly to combat dryness and breakage. Wash your hair with a moisturising sulphate free shampoo and use a silicone free conditioner to hydrate the area. Nourish your scalp and seal in moisture with a lightweight natural oil, like Protect by Full Bloom Beauty.

4. Avoid Heat and Chemicals:
Minimize the use of heat styling tools and harsh chemicals that can further damage your edges. Embrace protective styles and low-heat styling methods that reduce stress on your hairline.

5. Scalp Massage and Stimulation:
Gently massage your scalp, including the edges, to enhance blood circulation and promote hair growth. You can use your fingertips or a scalp massager to stimulate the follicles and encourage regrowth.

6. Incorporate Essential Oils:
Certain natural essential oils, such as basil oil and rosemary oil promote thickness and hair growth thanks to their ability to improve scalp circulation and cellular regeneration. These oils have to be diluted to the right amounts with a carrier oil to avoid potential issues. Anoint by Full Bloom Beauty is specially formulated with both these essential oils to make it safe and effective to use. Apply a few drops to your edges regularly and lovingly massage in.

7. Protect your edges while you sleep:

There are a few ways you can do this, depending on your personal preference. Some people prefer to sleep with a silk or satin bonnet, which helps to retain moisture and minimize friction that causes frizz, breakages and split ends. Others prefer to sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase, which has similar benefits. Whichever option you choose, this is an important step to protect your gains.

8. Be Patient and Consistent:
Hair regrowth takes time, so be patient and consistent with your efforts. Implement these practices consistently and monitor the progress over several months.


Regrowing your edges requires a combination of gentle care, moisture, stimulation, and a holistic approach to hair health. By adjusting your hairstyles, avoiding damage, providing proper hydration and nourishment, and practicing patience, you can encourage regrowth and restore fullness to your edges. Remember, each person's hair journey is unique, and results may vary. Stay committed to your hair care routine, embrace self-care, and celebrate every step of progress toward regaining your healthy, flourishing edges.
