The Best Edge Control Products According to You.

A few days ago, we discussed the topic of being polished.  One of the Laws of being polished was to have our hair on point.  Trimmed ends and healthy strands are key, but what about those edges?  Tamed edges are a must if we want have a polished look.  I was one of those people who never really did anything to groom my edges. Then one day I decided enough was enough and it was time to find a product that could lay these edges down.

The problem is that I had no idea where to start.  So I did what came naturally. I asked you guys on the Facebook page.  And thanks to your responses,  I have a few products to add to my shopping list.
Aveda Control Finishing Paste

These edge control products were the most recommended thanks to everyone's feedback.  My experience with edge control products in the past hasn't been successful.  Years ago, when I had less texture than I do now, my hair responded well to Profectiv's Root Health Anti-Dryness Strengthener.   Although it isn't really an edge control product, the soothing cream helped calm my scalp while nourishing and taming my baby hairs.  It was like a moisturizer for my edges.  I may try it again.  But, who knows, maybe now I need the help of a thicker gel to give me the results I'm looking for.   

Either way, I won't stop until I find a staple edge control product.  Especially now that I've decided to experiment protective styling in braids for a while.  I'm open to any other suggestions.  Please share your experience.

  1. I'm interested in knowing more about the Aveda edge control. That is the one on your list that is easily accessible here in Australia.

  2. Curls Control Paste is also a good one.

  3. Hairveda's Whipped Gelly is amazing (:

  4. I have tried all 3 of those and nothing.... I mean nothing works as well as hicks. I have coarse hair so the others may work better for softer finer textures.
