For those who have experienced breakage at their hairline, the black version of this edge control helps to make them look a little fuller, provided that you have black hair. The downside of this brand of edge control is that it leaves hair sticky, and greasy after use. If you intend on changing styles, you’ll have to wash it out. If you’re a natural girl, who does wash and go’s on the regular, then this can work for you.
