Top 3 Best Edge Control for Hair Extensions
No matter if you are an afro puff wearing natural sistah, rocking a fresh relaxed style, or slaying those 26 inch Mink Brazilian bundles, there is one thing we all have in common. And that’s laying those edges and baby hairs hun’ty!
I for one, feel as though slicked edges are a must when it comes to any style. It just completes the look and gives your style a nice finished and polished appearance. However, there is one problem when it comes to doing so. You have to pick the right edge control. Otherwise, you get that greasy, white-casted residue left behind, or your baby hairs starts curling up and you get that “I just sweated out my perm look”. And ain’t nobody got time!
When picking out an edge control, you need a product that’s actually gonna control those edges. An edge control that will lay and smooth your edges without it curling back up on you. Lucky for you, I’ve come to save the day and put together a list of my top favorite picks. So that way you don’t have to go through the trials and tribulations like myself, and believe me, the struggle was real!
