Edges can make or break a hairstyle, and unfortunately, a lot of natural and relaxed ladies struggle with keeping their edges tamed and slicked how they want them to be.
There are tons of products dedicated to edge maintenance, but let’s be honest–some of them just don’t work, and even some of our favorite products have their cons. Because of this, we must tweak and combine our favorite hair products to keep our edges tamed and free of frizziness and lifting. Below are 3 fab favorite product combinations that keep my edges laid and slayed.
If you’ve been reading up on hairstyles and products at all then you’ve probably heard about EcoStyler products and Jamaican Black Castor Oil one or twenty times. These two products are staples in hair regimens everywhere because they work wonders when used individually, but a lot of people don’t know that the two together are actually a great combo for laying your edges.
JBCO seals in moisture, adds shine, and even promotes growth. Although those benefits are great, the real magic comes from it’s consistency. Because the oil is so thick and heavy, it weighs down the hair and allows you to effortlessly style your edges without any frizziness or flyaways.
Now let’s be real, oil alone is NOT going to keep your edges from lifting and definitely won’t hold down your baby hairs or any other style. So what do you do? Set the style with EcoStyler Olive Oil Styling Gel. Unlike a lot of other hair gels, EcoStyler Olive Oil Styling Gel is water based, alcohol-free, and locks in moisture with olive oil.
The best way to apply these two products is to wet your edges before applying a generous amount of JBCO, brush them down and style, and then lay a thin layer of EcoStyler Gel over your edges. For the best results, tightly tie down your edges with a scarf and remove after a few minutes.
This combo is best for those of you who struggle with dryness and frizzy hair and/or slicking down your edges while wearing a straight hairstyle.
