MY EXPERIENCE:  I use this of course smoothen and lay my edge for a sleeker look. Mostly for my buns and puffs. It is best used on clean, moisturized hair and applied with a hard brush and a scarf to tie it down for a couple of minutes. I do this whenever I want to lay my edges and it stays on my hair and maintains smoothness and shine for 7/8 hrs but seems to lose that polished sleekness and hold after 5 hrs or so. And that’s when I check my mirror and see oily edges.

PROS:

It instantly lays the edges and provides great shine

It is very moisturizing for an edge gel

 

 

CONS:

It contains humectants that can interfere with hold: propylene glycol and glycerin.

Short-lived hold and sleek look.

It can be a bit too oily

 

WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN?

I’m yet to try out other edge gels, but for now I’ll keep using this till I find a better one. So Yes, I’ll buy it again, it does a fairly decent job with smoothing your edges and providing great shine.

 

SUMMARY

This products at first gives this unbelievable instant hold, sleekness and shine but after some hours, the hold and sleekness is gone and you are left with slightly moisturized, oily edges with slight hold which to me isn’t a bad thing at all.  I won’t say I love it and I won’t say I dislike it either. I’m on the fence here.

 

If you are for an edge gel that moisturizes and provides great shine and wouldn’t mind the short-lived sleek look, then you can give this gel a try.

    Look at those edges!
    Does it flake though?
    The issue I have with gel is that it flakes (the one I’m using) at the end of the day.
