I have a love, hate relationship with my edges. For years I’ve had to live life around them. I strayed away from more “European” hair styles because my edges would always pose a threat. Thankfully, I can finally say that I’ve hit the jack pot. I’ve found an edge control that works better than everybody’s beloved Eco Styler!
Ebin 24 hr extreme firm hold edge control is life. The same edges that Creme of Nature couldn’t hold has finally been tamed. Though I’ve tried gorilla glue, design essentials, olive oil, etc, none of these brands ever worked for more than 30 minutes.
In fact the beloved Eco-Styler didn’t even last 10 minutes on my edges. It sadly left my edges looking wet and hopeless. Thankfully, after a friend raved about Ebin’s edge control gel while at the beauty supply store, I decided to give it a chance. It was definitely more than I have ever paid for an edge control but I figured “why not, i’ve tried everything else.” But of course my hopes about it were no where high. But little did I know that the Lord was going to come through!
This gel is very thick and is therefore able hold my rebellious edges in place with no water added. Water actually makes it harder for me to get my desired results with this gel because it makes the terrain more slippery, keeping the gel from being able to get a good grip.
After my experiences with edge controls, I’ve realized that the thicker and stickier the consistency, the better. This look was achieved with the ebin gel and the same wooden, stiff bristle, military style brush that African American men use on their hair. I used my right hand to apply just enough gel to the perimeters of my hair line and then brushed it up through my hair as I gripped the hair tightly with my left hand. I would usually put a scraf over my edges for a few minutes to ensure a smoother terrain but this specific hairstyle makes it hard for me to do that. For the time being, I usually just applied the gel to my hair, brushed it, put my hair in a bun and left.
If you’re like me and you’re tired of consistently trying out edge controls in hope of finally finding “the one”, than Ebin 24 hour edge tamer is right for you. The one I purchased is called the extreme firm hold and it comes in a purple container. Definitely go get it asap because it’s been flying off the shelf. I literally had to go to Three beauty supply stores before I found one that had it in stock!
