Beauty Tip: How to tame your edges!

Hey loves, I’ve truly missed you this week! Between classes, events and life I haven’t had a chance to post all week ;(

But I’m back to discuss a pet peeve of mine, untamed edges….

Now don’t get me wrong there are a few times when I was in a rush and I skipped out of the house without my best edges(lol), however that is not the norm for me. I hate so see a woman with a fresh hairdo and wild edges (blame it on my beautician Krishanna)!

Now, I also know your edges can be hard to maintain when you are in need of a touch up, these tips work great for that as well.

I did my edges before I headed to the beauty show!

Pay special attention to the edges...

To maintain my edges I use Softsheen-Carson Let’s Jam Gel or Luster’s Renutrients Slick Stick(both are a God send)!!

But these products aren’t anything new, I’m sure most of you are already up on this…

But while in New York my girl Kanesha put me on to something new for my edges… It’s a denture brush!

I love the denture brush because it’s just the right size to get to those hard to reach edges, the hard bristles will lay each strand down!

You can get these brushes at any local pharmacy or Wal-Mart, Target! They are relatively cheap and cost less than $5.00.

Now you know what to do, don’t forget to get those edges in order especially for the summer!

Do you have a routine for your edges?? Let me know!

    The Lusters Slick Stick is an affordable way to keep those edges tamed, I also use it to blend hair into weave after installing a Natural Sew-In, the only set back is sometimes it can be greasy. My favorite product for edge maintanence is Aveda Control Paste, does the job without having a greasy residue.

    Love this post! My edges curl up like crazy so every night I slicks them down. I use Jam Gel with a drop of Morroccan Oil but when it is close to touch up time, I have to break out the Edges (they were at ISSE) Edges is AMAZING.
