Does anyone have a secret remedy for curing thinning edges? It's been 2 months since I've been natural and I haven't seen any growth in my edges. I put shea butter on it but it's just not growing. HELP!!!

I have very fine hair on my edges. Since January 2012 I have been using lumagen (generic latisse) on my edges with very good results. I had been using latisse on my eyelashes for a few years and then I read a few articles about how it helps grow hair in other places. I started using it on my eye brows and got dramatic improvement on brow thickness. Then I tried putting it on my hairline and presto! The edges have filled in and they are not as thin. Latisse can be very expensive. I asked my Dr if she would prescribe Lumagin (the original eye drop that they created latisse from) same product but I get 3 bottles that are twice as big for $50. I was paying $100 for one bottle of latisse that was half the size (one month supply).

You might also try a satin or silk pillow case. My hair used to break off in the front because of the cotton blend pillow cases I used to use.

Hope this helps!

Oh I just made my own hair growth mix of ingredients I heard that helps with hair growth. You don't have to copy the whole recipe, but you could mix and match.

Castor oil - helps with hair growth and thickening

Rosemary oil - stimulates the scalp and has some anti-something (viral, oxidant, can't remember)

Olive oil - penetrates hair, softens, moisturizing

Lavender oil - nice smell, stimulates?

Cinnamon - stimulates

Tea tree oil - helps with dandruff, stimulates, anti-something

Sunflower oil - has ceramides, seals

Avocado oil - penetrates, moisturizes

Coconut oil - strengthens hair

Msm powder - hair growth

Crushed biotin pills - grows + thickens

Sesame oil - don't remember

Peppermint - stimulates

Aloe vera gel - moisturizes and other stuff I can't remember

I'm still on a hunt for some of the ingredients, but here's what I heard helps.
