It’s been a while since I’ve done a natural hair product review. I was extremely excited to receive an invitation to review products from the #1 U.S. Hair Extension Wholesaler out of Atlanta Georgia, called Private Label Extensions. I received their clear and black edge control for review.
I will have to say, that this brand totally shocked me. I am always looking for the next great thing for my tresses. After thirteen years of growing my locs, I took the plunge and decided to comb out my dreads. Although it did take me eight whole days, and tons of conditioners and protein sprays…I am happy to say that I love my natural curly coils.
So of course, edge control is apart of my daily hair routine (honestly, even when I had the dreads, I was an avid edge control fanatic.)
What I Loved
I loved the smell and the feel of these products. They are both non-flaking, which is an essential aspect for me when it comes to edge control. I loved how soft and tamed my edges were. It lasted pretty much all day, so I wasn’t sneaking off to the bathroom to re-tame any disobedient, stubborn flyaways. The softness maintained even into the next day, with absolutely no residue. My hair looked so shiny and healthy. I am also obsessed with its ability to promote hair growth. My edges do appear to be thicker and overall fuller.
What I Disliked
The only thing I disliked was that if you’re not careful, the black edge control can leave a black residue if you don’t allow it time to set into your hair. So be mindful if you plan to use any headbands, as I would suggest you use dark colored ones.
Make sure that your hands are clean. Be sure that the edges brush (a soft-bristled toothbrush can be set aside just for your edges) is cleaned from any previous usage as it could leave bristles stiff and harsh for use.
Take a small amount of edge control using your fingertips (or brush) and begin to brush the area you want to smooth back.
I highly recommend Private Label Edge Control. My daughters and I are totally in love with these products. Our favorite out of the two is by far the black one. Give Private Label Extensions a try today! Trust me, you will fall in love like we did.
