There are products that help increase the hair strength and thickness, giving overall healthy hair. Some also stimulate growth by a few millimeters. But believe me, that’s all you get. A few millimeters. You can’t cheat nature on this one.
I am here to help you with effective products that will guarantee you fuller edges provided you stop pulling furiously at them.
- For the relaxed hair sisters, this growth will be quickly evident as soon as the un-relaxed part is straightened by the action of the relaxers.
Let's clear the air before we begin listing.
1. Hair is always growing.
2. Your hairline is always growing too.
3. If you pull your hairline too tightly, the hair there will fall off because hairlines are very fragile.
4. Styles that are guilty of being less merciful on edges are: weaving, ghana weaving and big braids, micro braids.
5. Hair line needs to be moisturized too, so get an oil moisturizer.
Now that we clear on this, let's get listing. The first on the list is:
What makes this different from 100% Pure Castor Oil?
The difference is in the seeds. Castor Oil is gotten from the seeds of the Castor plant. So to get the pure one, the seed is cold pressed and extracted. For the black one, the seed is first roasted, pressed and extracted. Because of the roasting the oil gotten from this process appears slightly darker from the cold pressed one. Hence, the name black but I don’t know how the Jamaica came to be though. Google is your friend.
JBCO helps with hair thickening. So it comes as no surprise that users begin to see fuller hairlines in few months. Some women even use this on their eyebrows.
Because Castor Oil is very thick so it is preferable to use on wet hair, or mixed with other oils like coconut oil, olive oil. For deeper nourishment, mix few drops with your favorite deep conditioner, cholersterol or mayonnaise.
I never even knew this myself. This is one of the products you keep seeing and just pay no attention to it. One day I picked it up, and after going through the directions and ingredients, I am convinced that this is an effective scalp stimulating oil.
It contains pure plant oils of grapefruit, ylangylang and several vitamins: vitamin A, D and E alongside other oils. Jane Carter tells us what to use it for: Dry, itchy, flaky scalp and for stimulating hair growth. She goes further to say apply to hairline to stimulate hair growth.
This is even better! A double-combo magic potion. So if you are experiencing dandruff, dry and itchy scalp, this is your go-to serum.
The product speaks for itself, literally. Billion Hair Potion.This potion Helps Promote Visibly Thicker, Fuller Hair. I particularly recommend this for falling edges caused by too tight braids and/or Ghana weaving.
What’s more? It is very lightweight and grease free, it practically sinks into the scalp and not sit on it. Pure pleasure. Just massage it in.
This is my favorite.
This product contains 2 bottles: yellow and green bottle. I know the instructions say you should use one before the other [yellow always before green] but many customers have achieved amazing results by mixing both on their palms and using at the same time.
The yellow bottle contains a mix of potent essential oils.
The green bottle is a light oil moisturizer.
This list is by no means exhaustive.
The rule for using all scalp stimulating products still remains the same for everybody.
Massage, massage, massage!
Massage with the finger pads and not nails.
All hair growth oils and serums [especially the scalp stimulating ones] should be applied to the SCALP and not HAIR. It is meant for stimulating growth and hair growth only happens at the scalp.
Now that you know this, go ahead and give any one of them a try but remember not to braid your edges too tight and watch your hairline become thick and full.
All hail the magic hair potions.
Lots of love,
