When you wear your hair back in a ponytail or bun, your baby hair sticks out—it is the soft hair around the edge of your forehead or the hairline. Baby hair or flyaways are cute when you let your hair loose, but a spoiler when you want a slick, tight hairdo. Here are few tricks to tame unruly baby hair into submission.

1) Toothbrush Technique: Simply grab a toothbrush and mist the bristles with a hair spray. Make sure the bristles are moist, but not dripping. Then, all you have to do is gently comb the hairs along the hairline, back into place.

Swap your chemical-based hair spray with this alternative. To 1 cup boiled water add 4tsp sugar and stir till it dissolves. Let it cool and then add 6-8 drops of your favorite essential oil. Pour this liquid in a spray bottle and style away. This hair spray is cost effective and does not harm the environment. Hair sprays tend to dry the tresses; this one will add a glossy shine.

2) Oiling Solutions: Set the hairdo you want—ponytail or top knot, then to set the baby hair you need almond or olive oil. Almond oil is rich in vitamins A, B, E, F and minerals chlorine, iron, zinc, magnesium, and calcium. It stimulates the hair follicles and increase circulation to strengthen the hair. But olive oil is a sort after oil in ancient civilization that has incredible restorative effect on skin and hair. You can choose any of the oils to pull back the hair.

3) Wet Hands: Make your hands wet and set the baby hair in place. But this is a temporary answer, once the moisture dries, the hair may move out of place.

Baby hair may be new hair growth or a feature on your face that you grow up with. It turns unruly when you apply excess heat, incorrect way of brushing your hair or brushing your hair too hard. Handle your hair with care and tame baby hair into submission.
