I’m pretty much a ponytail girl when the weather gets warm or when I’m in between weaves. I also happen to have frizzy hair, particularly around my edges where my grey hair is extremely non-cooperative.
Enter hair gel–a lifesaver for keeping my curly hair under control on my lazy girl ponytail days. I hate to admit it, but I have been a closeted user of that gross, gooey brown gel. I know, I know. But when you are fighting the battle of the frizz, that stuff works, with the bonus that it’s covers those greys! But, of late, I have left my shallow ways and have been rocking my grey hair (edges), even when I wear my weave.
Recently, I have been using EDEN BodyWorks COCONUT SHEA Control Edge Glaze and my edges are ever-so-grateful.
Here are the deets on EDEN BodyWorks COCONUT SHEA Control Edge Glaze:
EDEN BodyWorks All Natural Coconut Shea Control Glaze Edge Gel provides a firm, manageable hold along the hairline and/or hair shaft to preserve desired styles. Blended with Coconut Oil and Shea Butter, this formula will not dry hair out.
Lightweight formula will not create build up
No flakes, no stickiness, non-greasy
Great for tapered cuts, spiked ‘dos, slick-back styles, and twist definition
6 oz $8.99 Key Ingredients: COCONUT OIL, SHEA BUTTER
My slicked back hair looks just lovely when I use EDEN BodyWorks COCONUT SHEA Control Edge Glaze, without feeling sticky, hard or crunchy. There is no unsightly flaking after the fact. And, I love that I can skip days when using this glaze/gel. I just wet my hair a bit and start over again. I have also used it daily, with the same great results, no nasty buildup.
I have “soft” hair, but it’s very curly, so it can be quite resistant to “laying down.” I love that this gel keeps in it place and when I comb it out, it actually defines my curls, sans frizz. There is also another natural hair gel with a similar formulation that sells for over twice the price of Eden’s, but why spend more when you can have this one for less? If you ask me, I will tell you the brand….
