Sometimes you just want to make those edges lay. I love how our natural hair is extremely versatile and we can create amazing styles. Some styles require those edges to lay down and we all know, our natural hair has a mind of it’s own and laying down is NOT always easy. That’s why I had to create a post on black owned edge control to showcase the brands that bring the right product without all the flakes and breakage some edge controls are known to do.
Edge control allows for sleek styles like placing hair up in a ponytail or just laying down those baby hairs. We want them to lay but not at the expense of our edges so we picked ones that won’t harm your hair but actually WORK. Check out our list and let us know which ones you’ve tried and loved.
