Let's tame those edges..

May 19 2016 0 Comments Tags: Hair Products

A neat edge and a neat part completes a hairstyle for me. Much like with fashion, a good dress on its own is just a good dress. A good dress with the right accessories however becomes something special. To me neat partings and neat edges are much like accessories, they add to the hairstyle and give it that extra something.

So, the products.

When it comes to taming edges, there’re a few options available. You’ve got the stick, the pomade and the gel. The stick is usually a solid wax substance which can be quite greasy but offers substantial hold. The gel is water based but offers great hold when dry, however it can leave your hair hard and flaky. The pomade is wax like but softer in texture, most pomades contain nourishing oils so they also add some shine as well as light hold, without the hardness and flakiness of a gel.
