Laying down your edges, slicking back your baby hairs – whatever you want to call it – can make your sleek ponytail, puff or protective style look that much better.

Here are a few tips you need to keep in mind when laying and laying your edges with or without a wig:

  • Make sure the mesh or lace of your wig is below your hairline.
  • Keep your hair moisturized under that wig cap, oil your scalp with oils like almond and jojoba to avoid product build-up.
  • Remember to add protein with Jamaican black castor oil and deep moisturise using a conditioning treatment every four to six weeks for strong and supple hair.
  • Treat your baby hairs like you treat the rest of your hair. Let them breathe and wear them in their natural state every few days.
  • If you use a heavy duty edge control or gel, spritz your baby hairs with water after use to remove any sticky and flaky residue.

These three videos will make sure you know just how to lay and slay your edges with any hairstyle.

Even with a TWA (tweeny weeny afro), you can make sure your baby hairs and sideburns are slicked down.
