Happy holidays, fam!!!
Yes, you heard right! We(You and I) have a Youtube channel(Channel name- A Makeupjunkie).
I started about 6 weeks ago but I felt my videos weren’t there yet. I just realized I’d never be ready..So guys, please stop by Youtube and watch my videos. Don’t forget to like, subscribe and leave your comments and suggestions. I’d totally appreciate it!
Back to the review, I’m reviewing a hair product for the first time; the Cantu extra hold edge stay gel.
Conditions and smoothes frizz and flyaways for shiny, sleek styles with a long-lasting, flake-free hold. Made with pure shea butter and formulated without harsh ingredients.
NO MINERAL OIL, SULFATES, PARABENS, SILICONES, PHTHALATES, GLUTEN, PARAFFIN or PROPYLENE.
I initially found out about this product from Dimma Umeh‘s Youtube channel where she shared products she uses for her hair.
When I saw it in InVivo some weeks after, I had to grab it.
It comes in a small tube(imagine a smaller sized pencillin ointment). When I checked the website, there was a bigger version though.
The edge control itself is quite stiff, almost difficult to dispense. When you apply it to your edges, it just stays put. No jokes. It held edges through the sweaty afternoons we’ve had of late in Lagos.
My hair is relaxed so I tested it on my younger sister who has natural hair and it held her edges too.
It does not flake, leave a residue or give that “eew” edge control look or turn white. I even use it on the parting in my leave-out to hold those very tiny strands/flyaways down.
The only downside to it is the size. It’s quite a small tube for N790 and if you are a generous user like me, it might not last very long.
I’ve used Motions, ORS, Hawaiian Silky and Ecotools edge control products over the years and this is the best edge control I have used.
It is just the size relative to price that bothers me.
Where to buy: In Vivo Supermarket
