Whatever gel you may use, please make sure you have a scarf and tie your edges down until the gel dries. Trust me, it works!

Also, I got my eco styler at CVS for about $2.50

@Missyo pressing before geling never worked for me. My edges didn't start laying down until they were forced under a scarf LOL

All of the "Edge tamers" do not do a thing for natural hair. I have tried them all....those things melt like Jam! The brown gels hold, but then you get brown boogers all through your hair. Wax...please! The one I like best is IC...that stuff is like super glue!

Press your edges with a small fine tooth STRAIGHTENING (aka pressing comb) It only takes a couple of minutes to do and once you're done your hair will lay flat with any POMADE. I suggest using Sabino b4 you press and your hair will last for a week minimum.  You can use gels to refresh your edges but it won't require as much maintenance daily.


This isn't going to work for women who are on low/no-heat regimens, who work out frequently, live in humid climates, don't have a straight install, etc

I think they were saying that bc pump it up is so sticky and it has a TIGHT hold
 
You hit it w/blow dryer for a minute after the spritz, then tie it down for while  and you are good to go for week.

You might also wanna try a wax stick as well. I use Luster's Renutrients Slick Stick. It's only about $6 at Walgreens and any BSS. And, it has no water in it, which is good for natural edges. My hair soaks up anything with water. This stick smoothes the edges and lasts all day. It doesn't leave your hair hard or sticky at all. And, you can use it on the rest of your hair, too. Give it a try! :)
