I grew up in the 90’s with ‘African Pride.’ The spicy-sweet smelling grease with the green top was a mainstay in our home, used for every natural (and unnatural) hair style I sported back then- permed, straight, braided with extensions… you name it! As a little girl, I was intrigued by the herbal formula and the scent brings back memories.
Fast forward 20 years, and I am a proud mama with two girls of my own. The brand that I so fondly remember is still going strong in the textured hair care market, and I now use it on my own daughter’s hair! The Dream Kids Line Smooth Edges is perfect for just that- smoothing out flyaways and slicking down ponytails.
Dream Kids Smooth Edges controls frizz while gently protecting delicate hair and scalp to help soften and moisturize all day long.

Smooth Edges is perfect for just that purpose- smoothing out flyaways and slicking down edges for neat braids, pony tails and buns. Reading the label, I saw mention of locks and twists’ I decided to recently tried
I used Smooth Edges on my little girl’s locs, with excellent results. Her two year old mature locs require She’s an active girl frequent washing and frequent twisting. Applying Smooth Edges to damp hair, I found that it gives great hold without crunchy or residue. There is no alcohol in this kid’s hair product, and that makes me happy.
I’m not wild about all the ingredients, however, compared to the other conventional loc butter we use to re-twist, smooth edges is just is on the same level ingredient-wide, but with far better results.
