Customer Reviews:

Superb Hold

I'm absolutely delighted with how well this edge control gel holds. It tames my edges excellently and they stay in place all day. I've never found a product that works this well.

Unpleasant Residue

I tried it out a couple of times and I was disappointed. It leaves a white, flaky residue on my hair. Not very happy with it.

Non-Greasy Formula

I love that this edge control gel is non-greasy. It keeps my hair looking neat and tidy without giving it an oily appearance. Definitely a plus for me!

Average Scent

The edge control gel does its job, but the scent is just okay. It's not unpleasant, but it's not my favorite either. It's just average.

Too Hard To Apply

This edge control gel is really hard to apply, it doesn't spread easily on my hair. It's a real struggle and takes up too much time, I won't be repurchasing.

Decent Performance

The product does a decent job at keeping my edges in place, but it's nothing extraordinary. I would say it's just average in terms of performance.
