Thinning of hair edges or loss of hair at the hairline is a nasty problem that is commonly faced by many people. Even the likes of Naomi Campbell, Serena Williams and Britney Spears have faced this kind of hair issue and the paparazzi even revealed photos highlighting their so called “traction alopecia”, a condition where one experiences gradual loss of hair that usually stems from excessive usage of chemical relaxers, heat styling, extensions and even excessive hair pulling. Many people can blame such condition on their genes, growing age; scalp infection caused by using alcohol based products, lupus, hyperthyroidism, etc. However, receding hairline can be fixed if you following some of our useful tips that work best for hair growth and help you get back a healthy hairline. Growing back lost hair requires a lot of patience, but always remember, “Where there is a will, there is a way!”
1. Quit the habit of tying up your hair back tightly
Whenever you pull your hair back too tightly to tie a bun or a braid, it causes too much of tension along the hairline and this may further result in breakage of hair and loss of hair over time. So, it is advised that you do not opt for such hairstyles and no matter whichever style you are going for, always make sure that you do not pull it back too tightly. Loose pinned updos are a great way to allow your hair to breathe.
2. Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase
Cotton pillowcases rob your hair off, of the much needed moisture and this can play a pivotal role in damaged hairline. If you sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase or simply tie a silk or satin scarf over your pillow while you snooze then it greatly helps to retain the moisture on your hair and pave a dreamy beautiful way to have a healthy hairline.
3. Never sleep in a bun, ponytail or an updo
This, in fact, can be the worst thing you can do to your hair. Not only do these habits result in hair loss but also cause weakening of the hair follicles giving way to your worst nightmare “receding hairline”. This worsens as you turn and toss while asleep. The best option is to sleep with your hair wrapped in a silk scarf or loosely tied plaits.
4. Do not wear bandanas, elastic headbands and tight scarves very often
While using these accessories may be OK once in a while, but it is definitely not a wise thing to wear these on a daily basis. Loose scarves are much more preferable.
5. Aloe vera juice or gel
Apply the juice of aloe vera on the scalp or simply rub its gel to stimulate the production of new hair. Aloe vera contains essential enzymes that work wonders for hair.
6. Coconut oil

Coconut oil promotes the growth of new hair by revitalizing and exfoliating dead skin tissues from the scalp. It also helps in eliminating dandruff allowing the hair follicles to breathe, thus stimulating further hair growth.
7. Castor oil
You can massage your scalp with castor oil at regular intervals in a week as it cleanses toxins and other impurities from the scalp. Castor oil, in fact, is a hair tonic that moisturizes dry and brittle hair, nourishes and thickens the hair and stimulates hair growth.
8. Peppermint oil
Works best when mixed with carrier oil. Peppermint oil gives a cooling and tingling effect to the scalp, purifies it and removes dandruff. Moreover, it aids in increasing the flow of blood in the scalp and promotes hair growth.
9. Rosemary oil
Also needs to be applied in combination with carrier oil as it is good for the scalp and helps in getting rid of receding hairline.

Fishes, chicken, red meat and eggs, if taken in prescribed quantities can work wonders for the health of your hair.
They are power-packed in B vitamins and are excellent players when it comes to releasing energy which is needed for hair metabolism. These foods help to keep the hair moist, silky and smooth.
So, follow these tips and bid adieu to embarrassing issue of a receding hairline and claim your healthy hairline back!
