“50s beehives were big, straightened 60s bumps were chic, and both styles could be seen with little curlicues of gelled edges and longer hair close to the hairline on the sides.”

The 1980s ushered in the Jheri curl era, and baby hairs showed up on fashion runways in the 1990s.

Naturally Curly recommends the following products to style your baby hairs.

And if you’re struggling to regrow your edges, the Taliah Waajid Hairline Help in addition to an edge-healthy regimen could prevent further loss!”
