Has anyone overcome mild to moderate Traction alopecia or thinning of the edges while still getting occasional sew ins...if so what's your install technique and remedies?

Try leaving your edges out. I noticed that my daughters' edges started to thin out from her sew-ins. I started leaving like 1 centimeter of hair out on each side of her head and having her put Jamaician Black Castor Oil on the leave-out every night. Her edges grew back much fuller than I can remember. HTH

I agree, there was one girl who did my install and she left a about an inch of my edges out and I intially thought it was a lot of hair but looking back, my edges did the best with her leaving them out that much. She is an out of town stylist so I dont get the chance to get her installs when I need them, smh.

I use to section my leave out with rubber bands prior to my appointment . I agree with growth aides until you can rectify the problem area . The less stress the better . Good luck . Smile

I think stress is part of my issue...smh. And I just have to accept that my edges are EXTREMEMELY sensitive...I can't even look at them side ways without them disappearing. Last month I tried a closure (sew-in) for the first time and I promise you this girl did not install it tight at all. When I took out the closure my edges went on vacation, smh. More on one side than the other. I notice that the girl did not leave any hair out so I suppose that contributed it to the outcome. The funny part is that rest of my hair grew and did so well. 

I'm giving my hair a few weeks break and then next month I'll be installing some mongolian kinky curly hair with a generous leave out so I can massage them and apply JBCO with EOs on them.

All of these ideas sound great.  Moisture while wearing your weave, different braiding patterns and less tension is the Key!

Hey, if you're already using u part wigs, a removable one might be a good option to give your hailine a rest for a while. I saw this technique a few times wherein they put a very thin, sturdy string in between the edges of the u part opening to hold it together in place so they can wear it without tension from clips and without having to sew it on to a perimeter braid. I'd imagine that if you have a very active lifestyle (sports) this may not be very ideal but I think that if the unit is a good fit, it will work without shifting throughout the day of wearing. Pretty much like a full wig but it has an opening on top. Good luck.
