We all deserve laid edges and fabulous hair… however, all curly haired girls know the struggle of finding a good edge control gel for edges that refuse to be tamed. I love to try new products and as soon as my sister brought home the Crème of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges gel I was eager to try it out and see how it would hold up on my kinky hair.
I love the Crème of Nature with Argan Oil from Morocco line though everything has its pros and cons. According to the Crème of Nature’s website the Perfect Edges gel is infused with Argan Oil and “controls and holds down edges while moisturizing and adding Exotic Shine™ to the hair. This nutrient-rich formula makes hair stronger and gives superior hold without flaking. Perfect for creating sleek, smooth styles, ponytails, sculpting & styling the hair.” It also goes on to claim that the gel is “perfect for smoothing and molding edges, nape and sides of short hair cut styles.”
With that said, I dived in and started using the product. Below is my review.
I applied Perfect Edges with my finger tips and used a brush to style my edges as I did my hair for school. I thought that if it could last during my school day then this was definitely some good edge control. It went on easily and gave great shine it even initially appeared to be holding my kinky/4c edges without flaking as advertised. However, before my first class was over in the morning, my edges had returned to their coily state with only a greasy shine left back to remind me that I had indeed put on edge control that morning.
I was very disappointed and in talking to my sister who has a mixture of kinky and coily hair, she also told me that she was not impressed with its hold. In addition to its lack of hold, I am definitely not a fan of the product’s scent. I would love to know if the product works for other hair textures but I would not recommend this edge control to girls with a kinkier texture.
