I Did This To Grow My Hair Back After Giving Birth

If you suffered from postpartum shedding like I did then you feel my pain. During my pregnancy I kept my hair in protective styles mainly because I was just too tired to do my hair regularly. While in protective styles I kept my scalp oiled (everyday) with a mixture I put together which included; Haitian castor oil, coconut oil, and a little bit of almond oil. Doing this helped keep my scalp moisturized and grew my hair so much.

Literally, a few weeks after taking this picture my hair started shedding. The worst part of it all? My edges. I have never experience hair shedding like this, I’ve heard of postpartum hair loss but I didn’t experience when I had my son 13 years ago. With my edges thinning it started to mess with my self esteem. I’m not the type to throw a wig on and keep it moving along. So I had to just suck it up and nurse my edges back to health. I started back with my protective styles and kept oiling my hair everyday.

My edges have come along way with using my oils and another product I decided to try. Its by Edge Naturale and its their Follicle Enhancer for natural edges. When they reached out to me to try this product I was a bit apprehensive but I loved that it was all natural. I wanted to use this product to give my honest opinion so I did. Its peppermint smell and creamy texture is great and so lightweight. Now if you follow me then you know I am always real with you. Visit their website Edgenaturale.com and try it out!

Along with using Edge Naturale I used oils that I mixed myself. I used oils that I swear by and have used before and made a mixture that has helped me so much, I even use it on my daughter’s hair. I have gotten so many inquires on it so I decided to create it and provide it to my mommies who too have struggled with postpartum hair loss as well as the ones who just need to grow edges or thicker hair. My oil will be available for purchase at the end of October! If you are currently subscribed to my newsletter then you will be the first to know when it drops!
