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.

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.
