We Tested 10 Edge Control Products for Black Hairstyles
Find out which edge-smoothing formulas get the thumbs-up for taming those kinky hairline wispies
This non-sticky, non-greasy gel-like formula adds shine and subtle hold on most hair types, but if you need it to work all day long and beyond, keep looking. Just a couple hours after applying it, my flyaways were alive and kicking again, and after using it a few days in a row, I noticed it left a filmy residue along my hairline. It contains olive oil (a jackpot ingredient for natural and relaxed hair), and aloe vera and wheat protein, which condition and strengthen the cuticle to prevent breakage. Plus it's alcohol-free, which means it won't slurp moisture from your hair. However, the formula contains glycerin -- a no-no for those seeking a truly organic product.
