Thinning edges are at the top of the list of a woman’s hair nightmare. Most women would rather deal with scalp sores than thin edges. When hair is frail around the hairline, it makes it difficult to wear updos. Be smart and protect your edges while transitioning.
When the weather is hot and sticky, we have the tendency to put our hair up off our neck, but you must be careful not to add additional strain to your already thinning edges. You don't want your ponytail so tight that your strands have to hold on for dear life. Also, stay away from braid extensions and any styles that require your hair to be tightly braided or pulled.
