Hey queens, welcome back to my channel. Today’s video is a highly requested one. This video is all about edge control. Yes, I know, I have a video already on edge control, but that’s for protective styling like when I’m rocking my box braids. So, this video is on how I maintain my edges, and keep them healthy, and exactly what products I use on a day to day basis. So lets get right on into it.
Edge control is very simple for me guys. I stick to one solid product to get all of my hairs needs. Now I know you may think that I’m crazy, but the one product that I use is African Black Soap. Black soap is enriched with a natural source of vitamin A, and E. Vitamin A and E are so good for your hair because their enriched with natural minerals. It will leave your edges clean and healthy. I’m telling you I swear by this product guys. Not only do I use it on my edges, but this is what I use to wash my face morning and night so I mean it’s really good cause you get a lot of uses out of it. If you wanna know how I use the black soap on my edges, stayed tuned and I’ll show you the process really quick.
The Edge Control Process
So, I usually do this process at night time once I’ve taken my makeup off and I’m ready to wash my face. I go ahead and pull my edges out, and wash my face and my edges with the black soap. As you could see the black soap came in that really big chunky square. I just get a knife or a spoon and cut off just a little section to use for a few weeks. I then take the other piece and just put it in a little zip lock bag. So how I do my edges is very very simple. I grab a brush, and as you can see I have my hair in a puff. It’s not really tight. So, I just grab a brush, and I pull and brush my edge line out. Whatever I want to take care of. This is also a good process to do, like during the week if you use a lot of edge control. You know how your edges can get really gunky, really nasty. This is a great way to keep them clean. So I just go through and brush out all of my edges, and then I’ll grab a headband. I have a thick headband just to secure the rest of that section off.
After I have that section secured off. I use warm water to just wet my hands, and get the soap going, and then I use the tips of my fingertips to go in and just gently wash and scrub away any dirt. Like I said, I do this process when I’m washing my face but for the sake of the video I just wanted to show you guys. So, I’ll lather it up even more, and just go right in there and gently massage my edges with the black soap.
Then, once I’ve done a nice scrub all the way around my edge line. I’m just going to rinse the black soap away, and then prep my edges for the next day. Once I’ve rinsed the black soap away, as you can see my edges are nice and clean, my hair is really soft, I usually just grab a little coconut oil. Put it on my fingertips, and then I just go in and massage a little coconut oil on my edge line. Like I said, I usually do this at night. So, once I get done massaging the coconut oil in I’ll just pull my headband down, and let my edges dry overnight. Then they will be good clean healthy edges ready for the edge control in the morning.
I hope you guys enjoyed that quick little video on edge control. Please know in no way shape or form that black soap is a cure for edges, and overnight your edges will grow. I’m saying that black soap is a great way to nourish and moisturize your edges to promote healthy hair growth. The black soap that I use, it’s 100% organic, it’s all natural, it’s chemical free, fragrance free, it’s amazing. Not only can you use it on your edges like I said. I use it on my face. You can also use it on you skin, your body, and I’ve even seen where you can use it as a shampoo. I’ve yet to try it, but as soon as I do I will let you guys know.
Thank you guys so much for watching. I really really hope you enjoyed it. Until next time queens, be great!
