This product is fantastic for anyone with an overall coiled hair type. This product works best for those with 3A-4C hair textures. Design Essentials has a few fantastic edge control products, 3 to be exact, the Sleek Edge Control is one of our favorites. The edge tamer offers is a moisturizing, smoothing and defining gel that provides control, touchable shape and texture for tousled, spiked and pieced out looks.

2. Creme of Nature
With its gelatin-like texture that leaves behind zero visible residue and enriched with argan oil from Morocco, Perfect Edge has been one of the best selling edge gels in recent years. Perfect Edges is also available in a fantastic travel-friendly size that's convenient for on-the-go touch-ups. For those who have dark/black hair and gray edges and/or thinner edges the black version of this edge control, Perfect Edge Black is the perfect product to help to make your hairline look fuller and cover up those grays. The downside of this brand of edge control is that it leaves hair a bit sticky after use however if you regularly rock a wash and go then this can definitely work for you.
A nourishing blend of mango and shea butter, argan oil, and blueberry extract makes this Control Paste such a must have! Available in blueberry and passion fruit, both options are organic, water-based and free of sulfates, silicones, or parabens.
4. ECO Style
I had to add this to the list. I know, I know it's been canceled by some people, due to the harsh ingredients, but others still swear by it! Eco Styler, in all its forms ( olive oil, argan oil, castor oil) is known as a lightweight and alcohol-free gel that is a great solution for fighting off frizziness and having a maximum hold, especially when paired with a thicker pomade. Also, it doesn't feel tacky to the touch, doesn't flake off midday, and won't make your scalp itch.
5. Hicks Total Transformations
Hicks Edges holds hair firmly in place with super shine and without flakiness. Leaves your edges looking and feeling shinier and healthier than before. This genuine hair gel is non-flaky and non-sticky and rinses out easily. Mix it with a thicker pomade-like product for additional hold.
