Welcome to Texture Talk, a column that celebrates and deep dives into the dynamic world of curly hair, from crowns of curls that are free flowing to strands that are tucked away in a protective style.
Laying your baby hairs is a real art form and as such, should be treated like one. The right combination of seamless swoops or curls can really help to elevate and polish any style, as well as help to frame your face. However, if not done correctly, or worse yet, with a product that doesn’t offer much in the way of staying power, it can really put a damper on your ‘do.
The best edge control products should have a combination of three main qualities. Firstly (and most obviously) they should help to hold and keep your edges in place. Next, they should dry down clear without leaving any white residue, flaking or build up. And finally, they should contain moisturizing ingredients which will help keep hair healthy and shiny. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, not always. Finding edge control products that do all of the above, while also falling within your price range and being compatible with your hair texture, is definitely easier said than done.
Luckily, we’ve done the heavy lifting for you and rounded up some of the best edge control products on the market. Shop our picks below.
