Keeping ones edges in check / on fleek is a never ending struggle for most naturals, whether you want a soft hold or a ‘edges-laid-to-the-gawds’ look. I have gone through my fair share of edge tamers and in this post I will go through the ones that I currently have in my product stash and tell you my feelings on them.
ORS Edge Control
This is the first edge tamer that I bought very early on it my hair journey. I find it to be quite solid – this makes it hard to apply and distribute through the hair. For these reasons, I have not used in a loooong while – it is just sitting there and gathering dust.
Easy Waves Edge Tamer
A friend recommended this product to me, she had been using and loving it. I used it quite heavily at the beginning of the year. Using it with a toothbrush did wonders for my edges. What I liked most was that you can almost choose the type of hold you want by using a little bit or a lot of product.
The Curl Company Styling Crème-Gel*
This is my current love – I use this gel almost exclusively now. It gives a soft hold and is more crème than a gel, if you get what I mean. I have to be careful not to use too much because it does leave a residue if I get heavy handed with the product.
EcoStyler Professional Styling Gel (Argan Oil)
I must admit that I’ve only used the Eco Styler Gel once, I did like how it performed though. It gave my hair the most long lasting hold out of all the other gels that I have used. I might just try doing a wash and go with it, even though I swore off wash and gos a few months ago.
