Rocking natural hair is great but then edges getting out of control can be really annoying. Baby hair as these edges are sometimes called can either make the hair look less elegant or be a straight out source of inconvenience or irritation if they get really unruly. So you want to keep them under control, keep them looking sleek and really tidy so you can wear your natural hair and look and feel great while doing it.ย  And hereโ€™s how to do it along with a selection of Youtubers sharing great tips on how to go around things to pick style inspiration from.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO STYLING BABY HAIR EDGES

You get the following items:

  • A styling gel for edge control. Eco professional styling gel( the clear colored variety )comes well recommended in this regard
  • A hard brush for brushing through the entire hair
  • An edges brush for manipulating your edges
  • First moisten your hair a little, with a little water
  • Brush your hair taking care to brush all your edges out
  • Apply some of the styling gel to the edge brush and you can then begin to style your hair edges into positions that you like best

A general tip to make your edge control process more effective is combining edge control and gel. In small sized amounts as too much of it can leave your hair looking unattractively whitish and thatโ€™s not great. Then always remember to moisturize hair as hair gels tend to work better on moisturized than on dry hair. Also get the right equipment and try to invest in a brush that does the trick for you as well as good quality edge gels for better effects.

How the Youtubers hair bloggers tame hair edges

ย A style is to twist them into attractiveย  curls, to achieve that, you put the strands around a finger then you twist them into flat beautiful looking curls by first combing in a down, then taking a curve near the end of the strand with the edge brush. This is the style that the YouTube hair blogger, Eris the planet does and the result does look real good.

An other approach you can take to laying your hair edges is to first comb out the baby hairs after first moisturizing the brush into positions you want them to be, then you apply the edge styling gel to it, Hazel beauty, a YouTube blogger who prefers this approach recommends got2b ultraglued hair styling gel, with high praise for its long lasting effect and the fact that itโ€™s great for really curly hair types too. So you apply it, then comb the edges with the edge brush into styles that you prefer. A trick Hazel beauty recommends for really flat edges is to run the area over with your finger in a smoothening down motion immediately you brush it over thus making it flatter and longer lasting.
