We’ve all been there AND fear it – spending hours getting your hair perfectly laid only to have unruly baby hairs and fuzzy, fly away edges spoil your look. Instead of going the beat-them-into-submission route, you could try taming them with some of the amazing edge control products that are tried and true!
Grab your boar bristle brush; here is Reflect Beauty’s Top 5 Edge Controls to get your ‘ish snatched. First up, Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Edge Control Smoother!
Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Edge Control Smoother
When it comes to edge control, the idea is to keep those stubborn hairs down without making them look stiff, crunchy and unnatural. This product’s hydrating and nourishing formula contains honey, aloe, and macadamia oil. It gives you all the edge control you’re looking for while adding just the right amount of healthy shine.
Design Essentials Sleek Edge Control Max Hold
Hair comes in many different textures and if you have really coarse and tightly coiled natural hair, then Design Essentials has got you covered with several of its products. We are featuring the Max Hold Sleek Edge Control but you can also try out their Natural Honey and Shea Edge Tamer which works wonders on 3A to 4C hair types.
Ebin New York 24 Hour Edge Tamer
A full 24 hours of secure hold is the promise you get with Ebin 24 Hour Edge Tamer, and we must say, it delivers! This professional, salon-grade gel goes beyond taming stray strands. The argan oil in its formula makes it a good conditioner for naturally thick and coarse hair. And don’t let the strong scent turn you off, that soon disappears, leaving behind the faint nuttiness of argan oil mixed with delightful floral scents.
Lottabody Control Me Edge Gel Black
This Lottabody gel is translucent, non-flaking and leaves no residue – Yassss! It gives a super strong hold to keep even the unruliest of hairs in place all day and often longer. What makes it even better is that it has a sweet and earthy scent of coconut and shea oil without being at all imposing.
Hicks Total Transformations Hicks Edges
You know what they say, “If it ain’t broke …”. That helps to explain why Hicks Edges has remained so popular for so long. Simply start with clean hair and work just a little of the cream in. It adds a bit of shine but it’s not greasy or flaky so there’s no residue to worry about. Those baby hairs will love it!
We have so many options now to achieve perfectly laid edges. So if your arsenal still consists of an old crusted jar of Let’s Jam and a barely recognizable toothbrush, it’s time to switch it up. Your crown deserves it!
