Just go head and perm ya whole head. S**t.
I personally wouldn’t do this but to each it’s own
I know to each his own let people be who they are
No. The reason I say no because I don’t need relaxer to lay down my edges. My texture with gel alone does that.
Bingo, lay the gel down and set it with a scarf!
That too….but I don’t have to do that because of texture.
Meaning use a scarf 🙂
Me as Well eco gel is all I need
Yep. That’s all we need is a lil control that will tame the uncontrolled…
I say no and my edges won’t lay down. I’m happy with my hair because I’m happy with me and it’s apart of me.
Why would I try to disguise what I am. That would be like being natural but wearing a weave 365 days of the year.
You can’t hide from yourself and you can’t be anyone else.
But for other people that have hair that won’t lay down with just gel…
That’s all you need.
I ain’t knocking it. My edges work my nerves but if I perm them I won’t have any.
Lol I try my best to keep the little bit I have, greasing and praying and everything
It works I perm my edges ever time get a sew in and I still have hair
Cool beans, perms take my hair out though. I’ve compensated by becoming a beast with some flat irons lol
What’s the point
Hiding your africaness
Y can’t we embrace our hair. It’s so sad to go to that extreme
I agree. My edges don’t lay down so i don’t force them. I work with what I have. #lovingme
I perm my edges and I love myself!!!
Chemicals aren’t healthy for your hair..period…I thought this was one of the reasons why we have gone natural, but I guess appearance overides that
Erm. . Why?
Nope. you can get slick edges with some good quality edge control & A silk wrap around the edges to help lay them. Thats doing nothing but weaken ur edges.. which is already fragile. I’ll pass.
Or you can just accept your hair as it is and do the best with what you got. This is just….
Exactly! The edges and nape (back of ur head) Are the most fragile part.. And looking at her edges before she permed them they looked horrible and fried. Jus wish more women would love their hair. A little love goes a long way.
Hey! What is a silk wrap?
A silk scarf. Similar material to a bonnet. Helps protect your hair and edges. Cotton takes moisture out.
That never worked for hair like mine ! It prob her last option
To each its own. Everything won’t work for everyone and i love learning/hearing what other people do. But maintaining healthy hair at the same time
Those products don’t work for everyone! It’s her hair, she can do as she pleases! Why do pple feel the need to put others down because of how they choose to wear their hair….it’s ridiculous that women do this to each other
Funny cus no one is judging women for loosing weight or telling them to love their fat as it is….just because a women chooses not to be natural doesn’t mean they don’t love themselves or their hair.
^ That’s what I just said. Opinions are natural but id never go as far as to downgrade a woman because of a choice she makes. cause at the end of the day she lives with the results and hey if that works for her then more power to her. I wish us women would be more supportive and at least offer tips instead of being nasty..
Lol I’m natural and fat I’m not happy about the fat part but I accept who I am. I totally feel where you’re coming from
If someone is going to damage their hair a straightener or hot comb would suffice..it’s much less damage ijs && you can buy heat protection
^ True.. Plenty of them to choose from
Haven’t we see enough edgeless photos. Wisdom is not as diversified as it should be.
maybe for type 3 textures and 4a, but 4b and 4c are hard to lay down.
When I was relaxed I only did my roots ..I guess that’s almost the same … it seems so silly to me now
When your has been previously relaxed you are only suppose to retouch your roots and never overlap your previously relaxed hair. At least that’s the way you should relax your hair if you are going to use a relaxer… But in her case she is relaxing her edges because she is not satisfied with the look.
Why just why…
Edge control. Does it meant 4 natural. No need for permed edges
Hell no, not touching that creamy crack. If I want to smooth out my edges I’ll get the gel.
So what happens when the relaxer grow out? Do you perm it again or walk around with 2 textures? hmmmmm
Right when she rinse its all gonna rinse through her entire hair that’s so #%#%#
That’s my thought exactly…
Ikr. How do you care for two different hair types on one head. Perm hair products for the permed hair and natural products for natural hair. Crazy.
Doubt she’s going to have edges for long.
Perm it again
My point exactly soon she’s gonna be fully relaxed
Well I’m not sure what to say. I just deal with whatever my hair does, but too each is own
yikes didnt think of this…. thanks ladies..
Oh dont worry it will fall out waaaay sooner then itll grow out, that wont ever be the problem!
Why not just go ahead and perm your entire head?
I can only see people who weave partial weaves doing this. Otherwise, I don’t see the point. That’s what gel and edge control are for. And might I add that chime Edwards on YouTube did this successfully but it’s not for everyone
Wasn’t she transitioning while she did that?!
yeah she was, but i’m saying its not unheard of.
I wouldn’t do this what is the point? so are you natural or semi-natural???
That’s the million dollar question!
What difference does it make?
Not saying it does make a difference, but it does pose the question…. jmt
They are no longer natural because the hair has been taken through a physical change chemically. The existing texture is essentially only being “relaxed” but the hair is still “organic” because nothing about the chemical compound of the hair is changed. The hair is no longer virgin.
Nope, no thanks. It’s just not for me.
Can some of yall reply to this what yall put on your edges cause I have tried dang near everything…and nothing is working
Edges by Hicks
I use Eco styling gel (green one) and water….it works for me
Kera Care has one. One by Curls also
Gorilla Snot Gel, edge control then brush and tie down with a scarf for about 15 mins.
Gorilla snot is at Walmart for $3 order it from Walmart.com too if u can
The gorilla Snot Gel is at Target for about $3, the edge control is everywhere (target, wally world, sally, walgreens, ulta, etc….)
One more tip, it helps to spray a little water on your edges prior to applying the gel and edge control.
Oh ok I’ll definitely go get some makes me want to relax my hair lol Alecia Handley Daniel ….thanks to everyone else also really do appreciate it Amorette Stanfield, Jasmine Self, Keo Peo
I use isabella’s own, got it from a beautician, but i hate slick edges most of the time so I use it for other purposes
Shea butter works well on my edges as well
Nothing have worked for my edges. Soon as I go outside, the weather curls my hair up regardless of edge control, gorilla snot, or a scarf. Maybe this perking the edges may work. Stay tuned….
I have seriously thought about it.
No because once those edges grow out that hair is considered relaxed. . Can’t be both at the same time
read the box before putting a relaxer/texturizer/perm on your skin. Read the box…it’s a sign of INTELLIGENCE.
Heck no!My hair is natural and healthy but my edges are thin so it wouldn’t help smh.
Seems like a good idea, sometimes gel or edge control doesn’t work for everybody nobody how good it is.
Thank you ! I guess we all must have the same hair texture and can just use gel and wraps to press our edges down perfectly 😐 I don’t think this is a good idea, but I’m glad someone finally said that edge control stuff doesn’t work in everybody !
I think its a good idea for ppl who continuously wear straight weave and are already damaging there edges by straightening them evrday
Gel and most edge controls don’t work for my hair I’ve tried every type of jam..smh
True, either when wearing weaves or just a slick ponytail, those gel could not hold my hair down when it was natural
I tried 10 different edge control on my natural hair and nothing works, I did perm my edges once , and it’s not a bad idea at all,
Why do your edges have to lay down at all? If it’s that serious just perm your whole head.
Another solution is to work on you and why you can’t accept your hair type for what it is.
A lot if people like slick edges, so why not. And its not always about what you don’t accept some people just don’t have the time to deal with it.
Edge control don’t work for everyone. I have used all kind & nothing works . Thought about perking my edges but still unsure
I haven’t permed my edges, but I am having a HECK of a time, nothing works on my edges, the only time it’s straight is when I get a blow out , then it will last 2 weeks. Everybody’s hair is diffrent, and I’m not saying I would do it…………………but I understand. # whatever makes you happy!
Mix gel with some moisturizer, it works.
Yes. That edge control cakes up in your hair especially if hair is thick.
Yes sometimes my edges won’t cooperate when I’m trying to wear a sleek top knot or something
So many girls here saying the same thing. I too have issues with gels and edge control not working on my hair… so other than relax ur edges, what options do we have?! Anybody know what else works?! I have thinned and damaged my edges with experimenting to keep them slick!!
i relax mine and i love it its laid and blends well with my weave edge contro doesnt work neither does gel
My edges lay pretty well when I wrap my hair overnight. Organic Root Stimulator hair pudding is great for natural hair. Well at least on mine. I use all ORS products and it definitely makes my hair more manageable.
People can do what they want with their hair…
Seriously if we going have an uproar over relaxed edges then we need to get our priorities straight lol….
Damn do it old school get that black gel a brush and a scarf and call it a damn day
LMAO “call it a damn day”
Sadly that doesn’t work in all cases. Maybe she should use “gorilla snot” I heard it was good
Literally, that’s me right now. I’ve got black gel & a headscarf on as we speak.
He’ll naw…why not just pullout the scissors now?!
What’s the point?
Probably. My edges ain’t loyal
You don’t do the entire head because you like the kinky but not the nappy and too tight roots.
Once again, that’s the dumbest thing i have EVER seen.
I don’t see the big deal who cares if u relax ur edges everyone is diff!
NO, GREAT WAY FOR PERMANENT HAIR LOSS.
Then your not natural lol
No no for me
pointless. lol these girls do the most.
She coulda used hair milk by just for me for straight edges cause that definitely works.
what is a good edge control besides olive oil and creme of nature? the creme of nature that one makes a yucky goo on my hair and turns white…
Edges by Hicks if you get the buildup try using less or a faster remedy is oil sheen
Slick it or try using edge wax
Murray’s edge wax <$5 gorrilla snot gel $3 works as good as Hicks which can be $13-$15... Murray's doesn't leave as much residue as Hicks. if your have 4a/b/c hair u recommend a scarf with any of those
I have a relaxer but i wear sew ins…i need something to keep the edges good..i have bought gorilla snot before its too messy…
Don’t do it. Over perming and the need for straighter edges is why my edges are damaged now.
I DO ONCE R TWICE A YEAR..MAKES A DIFFERENCE
= bald edged
What is the point of being natural if you perm your edges
I was just thinking that.
What up with these children
Seems like as it grows out it will all be relaxed again anyway…it will be two textures. ???
So you can easily blend your weaves
Thanks She’ll. I was perplexed.
so….why go natural at all? just wondering, I dont care enough to judge
My edges were hard to blend with my weaves until after the 1st natural year after that i can use anything and they lay down, tough it out
Exactly? Umm contradiction much? I’m natural with a little relaxed. Smh.
Right…there are ways to blend your edges without resorting to perming them….you just have to learn how to care for your hair type
It makes no sense to me.
It makes sense to me that’s why I do.
How are you natural but perm your edges? Eventually your natural hair will grow out so new growth will be permed so it’s impossible
you’re not natural if you perm your edges lolz…its an oxymoron….Edge control + scarf over night= tamed edges
Totally agree and what are you going to do when the perms grows out?
How is your hair in it’s natural state with a perm?
You don’t need a chemical to do that…just get some gel or edge control do it with product.
Read those ingredients tho some edge controls have harsh ingredients
True im just suggesting.. I use gel only thing that works for me..
Can’t be any more harsh than a chemical…
It’s your head!!! Do what ever you want to suit your lifestyle. Natural isn’t for everyone, relaxed isn’t for everyone… Do You Boo❤️
I use to do this years ago only
in the summer to control Humidity
What’s the use of going natural if your going to perm you edges……. SMH. GET SOME EDGES CONTROL SNICKERS THE BABIES DOWN AT NIGHT THE A SCARF ABOUT IT AND WHOOOOLA IN THE MORNING SMOOOOOOTH EDGES. HA IT WORKS FOR ME!
That has to be the stupidest thing I’ve heard!
