Nothing beats the feeling of having your edges laid, it compliments any style and just pulls the whole look together. However, if you have stubborn 4c hair like me then you know the struggle of finding a good edge control that actually does the job.
The edge control you use should make styling easy and keep your hairline in place without leaving behind any flakiness or white reside. We all know how delicate our baby hairs are therefore we need to treat them with care by using the right products. I’m going to list a few of my all-time favourites that have never disappointed me.

My all-time favourite is the ‘The Style Factor Edge Booster Strong Hold Water-Based Pomade’ not only does it do the job, but it also comes in 14 different scents, that’s right 14!!! it’s hard to pick a favourite scent but I do absolutely love the strawberry scented one.
This gel is argan oil-based gel and has a non-greasy formula which means that it won't leave any white residue or product build-up.
Remember your edge control is supposed to make styling nice and easy without damaging your hairline and I feel that this water-based pomade has the perfect formula to do just that. This pomade is strong hold meaning that its perfect for protective styling too!

Another one of my favourites is the ‘curls blueberry bliss curl control paste’ this is another one with an amazing scent. I can’t get enough of the blueberry extract.
This classic edge control creates a beautiful sheen when applied to the hair. This product also promotes hair growth as it contains argan oil which we all know is an essential oil for hair growth. I saw a huge difference when I started using this on my edges, which was amazing!

Shine ‘n jam Is another classic gel that I love, I’ve used this gel for a long time now and I have never experienced a hard or flaky appearance that certain gels provide.
Which was amazing, I could go days wearing it without my edges needing to be redone. Nowadays there are many edge controls, but to me this one remains a top contender.

This edge control is perfect for all hair types. I have used this product when my hair was relaxed to when my hair was transitioning to completely natural.
After my big chop I was worried that nothing would hold down my 4c hair until I discovered this product. This was one of the first edge controls I used on my hair and it was PERFECT. The argan oil made all the difference it didn’t make my hair crusty or dry.

ORS Olive Oil Edge Control Hair Gel also changed the game for me. It’s a gel that’s specifically for 4c edges. This product is loved by many as it provides a strong hold but with a sleek notable shine. It’s also an alcohol-free formula which promotes healthy hair growth.

The ‘The mane choice crystal orchid biotin infused styling gel’ completely blew my mind, this gel is a biotin infused styling gel meaning that it specialises in keeping hair healthy but at the same time providing an amazing 24 hr hold.
Its packed with essential vitamins and nutritive ingredients that will be essential in your hair growth journey. When I used this product, I noticed a lot less frizz to my curls which lasted for hours! (I didn’t think was possible). I truly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an edge control that focuses on essentials for healthy hair.
