Her Edges -- Perfect. Mines -- Not So Much. Edge Control: Which One Doesn't Appear Greasy?

September 17, 2016 by Seymone Brutus

I rarely wear my hair without hair extensions. (I've been growing my hair from a previous shortcut hairstyle) Currently I'm wearing my hair in a style that does not match the texture of my own hair. Because of this, I use edge control on the edges of my hair so my hair will blend with my extensions

Frankly, I can't wait to switch my hairstyle back to curly so I can have a seamless look and enjoy my natural hair blending with my curly extensions. Shout out to this beautiful mama who has the right idea, "free the edges"

As I continue the journey of my own personal hair goals, I'll continue to use products and tools to compliment my hairstyles along the way. 

One of the main problems I have with edge control is that it goes on shiny, then melts off greasy.  

There are 2 edge control products that I've used that have been less greasy, but the top contender remains!

The thing is, this product is not dedicated to edge control. According to Matrix, "Matrix's Shape Switcher hair molding paste is your link to molded styles without the build up. A spreadable molding paste which combines strong hold and grip yet stays pliable, with a satin finish. Pliable hold, reworkable hold and texture." The video tutorial linked to this product is a dapper young man getting an edgy cut, with soft spikes and volume. 

That goes to show that many hair products and tools can be used successfully for things other than its intended use. 

I'm tired of getting the results I love only after getting my hair styled by Tika at the salon. I raved about it on the blog in 2015. So today, I'm finally purchasing my own jar of Matrix Style Link Shape Switcher Molding Paste!
