How do you slick down your edges?

Reader Tonia says;

I’m trying not to use brushes anymore, because my edges are sensitive. But I previously used them to slick down my edges. I was wondering how your readers keep their edges smooth. Also, my hair is coily… should I just come to terms with the fact that my edges will never be smooth? Or are there healthy ways to achieve this.

Alright ladies, what is your advice?

  1. I will be trying one these products. I have the same problem with many edge control products as well as one of the other viewers. They seem to leave white residue and won’t stay lying for to long. Thanks BnReena be bless!!!

  3. You should apply a liquid moisturiser or some water to dampen your edges a little bit and then apply the edge control, after that tie it down for like 5 minutes. That’s what works for me but it’s worth a try I guess!

  4. Things you need:

    1. Olive Oil/Castor Oil/Coconut Oil (depends on what you got)
    2. Tooth brush
    3. Spray bottle.
    4. Plastic Cap/Headband/Plastic Bag (XD What? Sometimes you don’t have a cap or a head band.)
    5. Bonnet/Headscarf

    First of all we need to spray the edges with water and massage the edges.
    Second we put some olive oil(or whatever oil you got boo) get out the tooth brush and brush them GENTLY! Now get your headband (rip the bag a little and tie it around you head like a headband or use the plastic cap..) place it directly over your edges then put on your headscarf or bonnet, then go to sleep. XD

    And if you’re in a hurry use the ripped up plastic bag headband that you may have made tie it up around them edges, put on your headscarf and leave it on for 10 or 15 minutes, take it off and wipe the oil that may have dripped off.

  5. i have had this problem forever i just fond the solution from another post all you need is some water and cantu shea butter leave in conditioner and some gorilla snot. You damp your hair brush the conditioner in then get a little bit of snot and a toothbrush and style. To make it better its super cheap snot 3$ at target and cantu is 4$ at target. So all for under 10$ and you get a lot of product.
