NS: How do you treat edge loss in the salon? what products do you recommend?
FJ: For hair thinning and loss caused by styling we always explain that the process to regrowth is a long game with a routine that must be consistent and with the correct products for your hair type. We offer a hair MOT treatment that works to provide the utmost moisture to the hair as dry hair anywhere on the scalp cannot grow to its best potential.The treatment involves our signature oil blend that is applied to the scalp and massed in prior to the hair being washed. Regular massage of the scalp can be of great benefit to the hair as it helps to improve blood circulation, thus hair growth. Clients are then placed under the steamer for up to 40 minutes.
NS: What are any at-home treatments you would recommend?
FJ: Regular massages with a light oil blend such as Coconut Oil and Peppermint. Coconut Oil because it’s great for providing moisture and sealing moisture and Peppermint for its stimulating properties. Black Castor Oil is also nutrient rich and can help encourage hair growth, but I’ve found it does not work for everyone as the consistency is quite heavy and too much for those with fine hair.
NS: Your tips and tricks that you have learnt to grow edges?
FJ: Be gentle and when you can leave the area alone unless you are applying light moisturising products or massaging it.
NS: For weave/wig wearers, how do you look after the edges underneath?
FJ: Always wear a satin lined band or cap under your wig to prevent friction and hair loss.
NS: For braids/natural hair, how do you look after the edges underneath?
FJ: Ensure the hair is properly hydrated and moisturised and always sleep with/on a silk pillowcase or bonnet/scarf.
