Probably one of the hardest things to control are your edges. Looking for a good product to help control your edges is not a piece of cake. We all know the struggle! Handling your edges can be a process that leaves you feeling hopeless, as if they’ll never lay longer than 5 seconds. Not to mention that the entire process can be time-consuming and overall frustrating if they don’t turn out right.
But I have good news for you.
With the right products and regimen, you can tame your edges in no time!
Here are 4 simple tricks to slay those edges:
- Wet hair and tie it down
Spray your edges with a little of bit of water before applying a pomade and/or gel to make it last longer. Apply edge control product on slightly damp hair and style. Tie a headband or a satin scarf over your hairline and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. This will help your edges stay slicked down and frizz-free. (Obviously this works best if you’re wearing your hair in a natural style. I wouldn’t apply water to hair that has just been silk pressed).
- Perfect combo: Edge control and Gel
Mix a little bit of edge control and your favorite gel and you’ll create the perfect concoction. For the best results, apply a thin layer of edge control with a little dab of maximum hold hair gel. Using too much can make your hair look super white and waxy, and you definitely don’t want that!
- Shoot it cold with your dryer
Using heat can cause damage which is why blasting your edges with cold air is a more suitable option. Blow drying your edges will make the edge control dry faster and seal your hair in its style while using the cool setting reduces the probability of damage.
Applying a couple of products to your hair especially on the daily is one key cause of dryness. To avoid dryness and frizz from accumulating, apply a dash of hair pudding, cream or a spritz of water before applying edge control and gel.
