How to tame your baby hairs
Baby hairs are known for being tricky to tame. No matter how hard you may try to style every strand on your head, those wispy little rascals on your hairline usually have something else in mind.

Baby hairs are shorter, finer and come through when you’re, well, a baby, but sometimes they like to stick with you through to adulthood. Kobi Bokshish, Global Hairdresser of the Year 2018, explains that everyone gets baby hairs but some factors, like heat styling, pregnancy and hormonal changes can exacerbate them.
If you’re an adult with baby hairs, you can leave ‘em just as they are (they’re natural and cute and oh-so-you), try and tame them, or do a little bit of both – whatever floats your boat!
Here are Kobi’s suggestions for what you can do to keep baby hairs under control...
If your baby hairs are hanging around because of breakage, there are a few things you can do to prevent and minimise your hair breaking.
“In the short term, reduce heat styling to minimise breakage,” says Kobi. “A good diet can [also] help with healthy hair growth long-term.”
We also suggest being careful with wet hair (don't be too rough with the towel and don't use a brush on wet locks) and also make sure to keep your mane moisturised at all times.
Taming baby hairs
If you’re into trying to control and style your baby hairs, Kobi has some tips: “Applying a serum or leave-in conditioner prior to blow-drying will lock in the moisture and help control the fluff by adding weight (so there are less flyaways).”
We also suggest using a toothbrush to comb hairspray through baby hairs or using a frizz serum like the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum and John Frieda Frizz Ease® Original 6 Effects™ Serum to smooth frizzy baby hairs.
Disguising baby hairs
You can hide your baby hairs. “I use Style Link Style Fixer Hairspray sprayed directly onto your hands and then gently flatten down the baby hairs, allowing it to dry for a few minutes,” says Kobi.
