Is it really possible to lay my edges without feeling like I’ve applied superglue to my hair? About a decade ago, I didn’t think so. One bad experience with maximum-hold wax was more than enough to turn me off edge control products for several years. But now, I’m on a mission to tame my frizzy edges without risking damage. Which brings me to a crucial question: What is the best edge control for 4c hair?
So far, I’ve only tested a few brands that weren’t very effective at keeping my edges laid, so I enlisted the help of some hair care professionals to help me figure out where I went wrong and, more importantly, which edge control products actually work for coarse, 4C edges.
