The Truth: This pomade is by far absolutely amazing! I love it dearly. I was introduced to it this past summer by my sister. I used it a couple times to slick down my edges and it did exactly that and more! I had incredible shine and long lasting hold. For some odd reason, it went missing a couple weeks back! I misplaced it somewhere in my house and for WEEKS I went around searching for this product because I was stretching my relaxer. I was craving the hold and slickness I get from this product that I really don't experience anywhere else. Lo and behold it shows up out of the blue today and I used it early this morning. I was in awe again :) The hold I get from this edge control is like no other. It does not compare to Elasta QP Glaze. In my opiniton Elasta QP Glaze is horrible since the hold is not strong at all (wears off within hours), it's oily and it runs down onto your face causing you to look and feel greasy. Yuck!
Edge control has a strong firm "grip" on the hair to the point where your hair feels locked in place, yet, there's no white crusty residue or hardness. It does exactly what it says it's supposed to do. It's my "go-to" product I use now while stretching my relaxer. When I use it, it's looks as if I'm 2-3 weeks post relaxer as opposed to 8 weeks (which is what I am at this present moment).
Tip: Do not leave this product out in the open without the lid on as the quality of the product can diminish quickly and it won't work as effectively.
