    So my edges have began to thin out on one side. I'm gonna start using castor oil interchangeably with Organic root stimulator fertilizing temple balm. Any other good advice???[​IMG]

    How often are you relaxing your hair?

    I relax my hair every 9-10 weeks the most 12. The thinking is only on one side. The rest of my hair is doing well.

    Are you frequently wrapping your hair at night? Many women get thinning hair on one side from that.

    Is the side that's thining the side you start with when you relax your hair?

    @PrettyinPink001 If you're using a fine tooth comb and/or brush to wrap nightly that's a ton of stress and manipulation on the hair, especially the edges where hair tends to be finer and less dense. Over time you may find that one side of your hair is shorter than the other because you're literally pulling out too much hair by wrapping.

    Some people avoid damage by alternating the direction they wrap in, others "cross-wrap" instead of traditional wrapping, and still others stop wrapping altogether. You can also try wrapping your hair with a wide tooth rake type comb and your fingers alone, a wrap doesn't need to be super tight to get good results in the morning. I personally like bunning at night - I get loose waves and lots of body, plus no stress on my edges. My edges are delicate and I can't use bristle brushes at all without breakage.

    I am sorry I don't have any suggestions, but I just wanted to say that I love your highlights.
