How To Tame Those Edges And Baby Hairs

hqdefault (1)

Do you guys do that? Do we even have baby hairs, or should we just stick with the term ‘edges’ or “hairline’? I was inspired by ItsMyRayeRaye because she just released a video that showed how she tamed her edges and baby hairs.

Her before and after looked great but after she did her taming routine I could see the difference and it did add something to her pulled back style. Taming my baby hairs has never been a priority, I have always just slicked everything back with no swirl action or any kind of tooth brush shaping.

On many videos on you tube though you will see alot of women putting some work in on their hairline as a style finisher and it does help to make your style complete.

What you will need

1. Edge Control product

2. A tooth brush


The key to not over doing the whole hair line shaping thing is not making your hair do something it isn’t naturally meant to do. In other words do not part out a section of the front of your hair to comb and gel down in the name of baby hairs.

You will notice some thinner hairs along your hair line that tend to grow forward and lay pretty flat against your face, those are the hairs that you would brush and make a little neat.

Using a tooth brush helps you to just focus on those hairs and not any of your longer thicker strands. Choose an edge control product that has great hold but that isnt too shiny. You do not want your forehead and the sides of your hair to appear way too shiny and unnatural. Most of the great products do not do this, so its a matter of trial and error.

Hair gel and a styling brush or small brush.

Curls “Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste is a great one. I have very coarse 4C hair and this lays my edges down. It’s $7.99 @ target.

April Varner-Chattman

Also there isn’t even a need for a brush, I just smooth it down with my fingers.

Jp Becker

I love those

Renee Akperov

Nope, I just comb them out and go

Deondra Davis

Lol, I do sometimes, but most of the time I can just take my fingers and lay it down

Shaundra Ceaser

Precious I didn’t read it, but the headline made me think of our convo.

Melody Osborne

Cute and informative; just the right amt of funny

Andrea Treasure

I’m a 4C natural….I’ve learned to love and accept my beady beads. A brush always suffice.

Joyce Johnson

Very pretty.

I have an issue actually I’ve used edge control by itself on my hair straight and natural and it didn’t work and I’ve used edge control mixed with pro style Eco gel on straight and natural and that didn’t work either…..any other ideas?

Kristin Douglas

Gel and a brush.

Esther Williams Jordan

Water has always did the trick.

Deanna Merritt Ross

It only looks natural on people with loosely curled hair in my opinion. I just brush mine back. Gel dries it out anyway. To each his own though…
