"Do edge ups cause receding hairlines and balding? "


  

          

So me and my ex are having this back and forward about getting my son's haircut. She is adamant about the fact that getting an edge up causes a black males hairline to recede or causes it to go bald. I am telling her that cornrows and bad barbers are the cause of a receding hairline, and I only get them for him once a month or so. So when she takes him to get a hair cut at Fade Gods or wherever, they fill in the hairline with Bajan (sp) and two days later the hairline looks raggedy like he didn't even have a haircut. BTW, She goes to a Latino barber, and I go to a black barber who i've talked to at end about this. Help us out!

Receding hairlines/baldness is 90% genetics and 10% scalp care (conditioning, cleaning, avoid irritation etc)

If you’re predisposed to it genetically then all the scalpcare in the world won’t matter. But cornrows and edge ups certainly won’t help

That Bejin treatment is the worst especially on a child. And yes! Getting edged up can damage a hairline if the barber doesn’t know what he or she is doing. Have them follow the natural line without creating one. So many barbers want to make everyone’s line straight even though not everyone has a straight edge.

Best of luck with that battle...

He was adamant people should wait until the child is at least 5 before lining up, it never bothered me, logic seemed sound. I was always disturbed to see toddlers with razor sharp lines anyways.

barbers pushing that line further and further back. All in the name of a straight line.

Keep believing you can't lose your hair because of getting bad edge ups.

I got a feeling most of the dudes, around these parts, look like this anyway. Wouldn't even know what an edge looks like.

cornrows either

things can damage hair, but if you're going bald, you're going bald regardless.

In response to Reply # 13


  

          

I thought so too...

...balding is caused by a change in testosterone...

BUT

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hair-loss/symptoms-causes/syc-20372926

There are references to 'hairstyles'...

"Certain hairstyles and treatments. Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull your hair tight, such as pigtails or cornrows, can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Hot oil hair treatments and permanents can cause inflammation of hair follicles that leads to hair loss. If scarring occurs, hair loss could be permanent."

I have seen edge ups scar...so...yeah, there's that.

who
a) never set foot in a barber shop till 2 yrs ago and almost overnight became an expert

b) gathered anectdotal evidence from people with bad haircuts

c) tried to discount my thinking because i got locs.

and to think what did i do im my previous years prior to locs? I went to a barber and never had my hairline pushed back because i had a good barber.

What is her theory? No edge ups until..???

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*
