Here’s a step-by-step guide to achieve the look:
1. Cleanse and Moisturize:
Start with clean, moisturized hair. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to maintain hair health.
2. Tools and Products:
You’ll need a fine-toothed comb, an edge brush or toothbrush, edge control gel, and a scarf or satin bonnet.
3. Dampen Hair:
Slightly dampen your hair with water using a spray bottle. This will make it easier to manage and style.
4. Apply Edge Control:
Take a small amount of edge control gel on your fingertip and apply it along your hairline. Use a light touch and smooth it down with your fingertip.
Use the edge brush or toothbrush to gently brush your hairline, guiding it in the desired shape. Brush away from the face, ensuring the edges are sleek and well-defined.
6. Comb and Shape:
After brushing, use a fine-toothed comb to further shape and define the edges. Comb in the direction you want your hairline to lay.
7. Set with Scarf:
Place a scarf or satin bonnet over your edges to set them in place. This helps to maintain the sleekness while the product dries.
8. Remove Scarf:
After about 15-20 minutes, remove the scarf. Your edges should now be smooth and well-defined.
9. Avoid Touching:
Try not to touch or brush your edges too frequently throughout the day to prevent disrupting the style.
Remember, the key to achieving perfect edges and baby hairs is patience and practice. Everyone’s hair is unique, so it might take some trial and error to figure out the best techniques and products that work for you. Additionally, make sure to avoid using excessive amounts of products to prevent buildup and keep your hair healthy.
