I've also been using a new product for my edges - Hicks Edges. My hairline has always been a trouble spot. The hair there has always been short, so it doesn't lay down like I wish it did. I have had fuzzy edges since I can remember. I've tried a lot of edge control products, and so far this is the most effective!
Hicks Total TRANSFORMATIONS, Hicks Edges holds hair firmly in place with a super shine and without flakiness. Leaves edges looking and feeling shinier and healthier than before. This genuine hair gel is non-flaky and non-sticky and rinses out easily. Control tapered cuts and nape back area.
Water, Ceteareth-25, PEG-7 Glycerylcocoate, Propylene Glycol, PEG-7 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, DMDM Hydantoin Andiodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Frangrance
Apply a small amount of TRANSFORMATIONS Smooth Edges around edges and smooth with fingertips until hair stays in place or comb in smooth with a comb.
I've been using this about every other day. In the morning, after I work out, I brush my hair a little, and then apply the product to my edges (dry hair) with a toothbrush, and then tie my edges down with a silk scarf while I shower and get dressed. When I take my scarf off, my edges are LAID.
I haven't experienced any flaking or buildup with this product. Most edge control products don't last more than an hour or two for me, but this pretty much lasts all day. I took a 30-minute walk this afternoon and my edges still looked pretty good:
I work out almost every day, and I still only need to apply this every other morning. I'm hoping that this product will help my edges grow since they are moisturized and laid down. It's a keeper!
