I've given up on finding an "edge control" product that actually works for me. Nevertheless, I somehow wound up with Hawaiian Silky Moroccan Argan Oil Hydrating Sleek Sleek Edge. Why these products have such lengthy names now, I do not know.
Product Claims: Hawaiian Silky Argan Oil Hydrating Sleek Edge provides the perfect control for your edges. This non-sticky formula helps hold down edges to give you control of your style while delivering sleek shine and incredible moisture.
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), PEG-20 Hydrogenated Lanolin, Propylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Didecene, Oleth-5, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Angelica Archangelica Root Extract, Arctium Lappa Root Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Sympytum Officinale Leaf Extract, Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Extract, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Meal Extract, Rosemarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinale (Sage) Leaf Extract, Nasturtium Officinale Extract, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, DMDM Hydantoin, Fragrance (Parfum)Thoughts: Sleek Edge holds my edges for all of 30 minutes, if that. Although I can't use this product for its intended purpose, it is good at taming canopy frizz. I just smooth a small amount over the top of my hair when needed.
When used on clean hair, Sleek Edge imparts a nice shine. However, it does buildup easily so this isn't a product for everyday use. I can use it 1 to 3 times between washes without there being noticeable buildup. It doesn't always mix well with other products so I test it on a small area of my hair before applying fully...a lesson learned after a few failed attempts. I hate having to wash my hair twice in the same day because of a bad product combination.
The fragrance is hard to describe, but it reminds me of shampoo with a hint of amber. I don't like it, but it fades quickly enough.
Hawaiian Silky Moroccan Argan Oil Hydrating Sleek Sleek Edge retails for ~$5 and ~£7 for 2.4 ounces. It is widely available in local brick-and-mortar stores and online.
Would I repurchase? No. I've used less temperamental edge control products before that perform better than this one. When I need lasting edge control, I can use gel.
