Hands Down, Here’s the Best Edge Control Products for Natural Hair

Whether you’re doing a fancy updo, a classic bun, or a poppin’ puff, having laid edges is a must! We all want the perfect edges without the hard “crunchy” feel or flaking. Here are the best edge control products for natural hair that actually get the job done.

Dr. Miracles Edge Holding Gel

When I first tried Dr. Miracles Edge Holding Gel, the gel-like texture had me a little skeptical. I was unsure if it would hold up since it was more like a gel than a pomade. I tried this on a night out,when I came home I realized that it held up great! I woke up the next morning and was pleasantly surprised that my edges were still intact. Amazing right?! It’s blended with Jojoba oil to provide great shine.

Design Essentials Natural Honey & Shea Edge Tamer

Design Essentials Natural Honey & Shea Edge Tamer was one of the first edge controls that I’ve ever tried in the beginning of my natural hair journey. I received it in a monthly subscription box and fell in love instantly. The honey and shea mix makes for a heavenly scent. The pomade texture slicks down edges with no frizz. My hair stays soft, with a nice firm hold and beautiful shine.

Silk Elements Straight Edges Edging Gel

One of my IG followers introduced me to Silk Elements Straight Edges Edging Gel and I’m so grateful. (One reason why I love having IG curl friends!) When I found it at my local beauty supply store I had to pick it up. I’ve used this countless times. It gives great hold, shine, and conditions without drying or becoming flaky.

Crème Of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges

The name says it all! “Perfect edges” is exactly what you get! What I really love about Crème Of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges is that a little goes a long way. I dug right in with a finger full and was shocked that I had to put some back in the jar because I was overdoing it LOL. It gives maximum hold with no flakes and maximum shine without the greasy feeling.

These edge controls give a great hold and plenty shine. An added bonus is that they’re all under $10 and can be found at your local beauty supply store. Don’t get caught with unruly edges. Take care of them and make sure they stay laid.
