This one of the products I purchased from my latest product haul, it’s basically an extra strong hair gel used to slick back the edges of your hair giving a sleek look.
On the label it says: Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Edge Control is perfect for control of your edges! This non-sticky, non-greasy formula allows for an excellent hold without hardening your hair.
I’m not going to display the ingredients here but the only ones of concern for me are the fact the ‘parfum’ is in the middle of the list whereas I would prefer it nearer the bottom, and the product contains parabens :/. See parabens are an iffy subject, there are claims they they are in fact carcinogens but I would rather have conrete proof before going on a witch hunt..so while it’s not a deal breaker, it does make me think twice.
I tried the product on my hair yesterday to slick back my baby hairs which are quite short and curly , and just happen to chill on my forehead. It has a thick, non-greasy consistency and requires a little effot to get it out of the tub. All I did was get some and gently smooth it onto my hair, continuing the smoothing motion until it was as flat as I desired. And this was the finished product:
It didn’t keep the same hold throughout the day, but the edges were still somewhat slicked back in the evening:
After using this product a few times, I noticed that sometimes if you have other products in your hair it can cause a white residue, and that it builds up easily, so you may have to wash your hair more frequently, depending on your current schedule.
All in all i’d give this product 3.5/5.
