Annoying hairline

I have short wispy "baby" hair all along my hair line and at the nape of my neck. They are finer than the rest and much shorter than the rest of my hair - 1 to 2 inches long when my shortest layer is chin length.

It's annoying because when I pull my hair striaght back, these stick out - acutally more like stick up and have a medusa look. And there's more of this type of hair on both sides of the center so I can't part my hair off-center without making this look more prominent. So I'm stuck always having a center part. Which is fine when I have my hair down but I don't like the look with the center part when I pull my hair back. :(

Is there any way to help this hair grow?

    I dont think there is a way to make it grow faster, you may just want to look at a cone free pomade to smooth the little hairs down into place, a headband or scarf, little clips that are same colour as ur hair wont be noticable....or some hairspray

    I've had the same annoying hair line my whole life, and now I see it in my older daughter. I think those hairs just don't grow very long. Kind of annoying when they decide to get curly after I tried flattening them and I end up with "horns". Good luck! :)
    Stopped fighting the pregnancy induced waves (9 year battle) and became natural 5/11
    2a/b? fine, low porosity
    co wash- say yes to carrots, strawberries and cream Vo5
    low poo- Lor'eal ever pure
    leave in- burt bees very volumizing watered down
    gel- beautiful curls wavy-curly, LA looks sport
    scrunch and pump works for me

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    I don't think it will grow longer, it's not breaking off, that's just how long it grows, right? Like eyebrows or something.

    I know people with this and one called it her "bangs", a natural fringe. So attitude helps a lot.

    If they get long enough to sort of part and smooth to one side instead of up toward the sky or down toward your eyes, that might help the look when you are styling. If they curl up it's probably a lot cuter than you think!
