Beauty Bit-The Best Edge Control Products for African American Hair

edge control products

I decided to do this video on some the edge control products I found in my local beauty supply stores. Edge control products are mainly for African American hair, and slick your edges back like hair gel. They actually seem like a gel and a pomade, depending on what product you buy. Some edge control products look like lotion. The ones I bought look like a hair gel. Hicks Edges is the best. While I wish it had better ingredients in it, it will hold my hair forever and have it laid. Ampro Shine ‘n Jam Silk Edges is my ultimate cheap favorite. Hicks Edges can be priced anywhere from $12 to $20 depending on the store you go to, but this Ampro product only set me back about $3.09. Score! The Creme of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges was $5.99 or so , but sucked. The only good thing about the product was that it smelled good. Watch the video above.

  1. Thanks jai for the info on the best edge control. I’m pretty much getting out of my braids and going as natural as I can. You’ve shed a ton of light on what I should use for my edges. I’m shy when it comes to wearing my own hair, but with you’re help to control my edges, I feel a lot more comfortable. BIG THANKS! I will let you know which one works best for me.

    1. So glad I could help. I hope this post helps you. The transition to natural can be really hard.
