What are Edge Control Products?

Our love for trying various hair styles on different occasions to enhance our look is natural. The way we style our hair for office will not work for a party or a social do; from a high ponytail to a twisted bun, or a half up bow to easy Boho braid, or simply showing off your long, rope braid, or a top knot; all of them need hair products like Edge control which control the edges & give them a perfect look.

The positives of using Edge Control Products:

Edge control products have become a must-have these days in hair styling. Edge control does literally what it says- keeps the edges in control and gives a sleek look for a long time. The fragile, baby hair which refuse to stay in place, giving a clumsy look to otherwise absolutely amazing hair do, are tamed by this wonderful product.

The negatives of using Edge Control Products:

The market today is flooded by a number of edge control products but experts advise against a regular use of these. An occasional use of edge control products may not be harmful but frequent use of these leads to irreparable damage by breaking off the edges.

Our edges are the most fragile area of our hair therefore if it’s worked on too regularly, it creates a tension which may lead to breakage over the time.

Edge control products are generally of a thick consistency as their function is to hold and sleek down the edges. The heaviness of such products tends to clog the pores on the scalp, making it difficult to breathe, hampering the health of the follicles.

Another reason to keep in mind is that it is equally essential to provide the required nourishment to edges if you want to keep hair loss and thinning at bay, but these products do just the opposite.

Edge control products leave a thick film of the hair due to which shampoo can’t penetrate once the strands get wet. To overcome this, dry shampoo is required which strips not only such stubborn products but also robs the essential oils and moisture from the scalp, leaving it extremely dry. The hair treatment for such a problem is deep conditioning after every wash.

Expert opinion on Edge Control Products:

Like all other things Edge control products also come with a price specially if overused or frequently used. Most experts suggest very limited use of these products as it not only negatively impacts the delicate edges but also causes grave damage to the scalp. The ingredients used in these products are strong & harsh, such as propanol and alcohol, thus causing dehydration to your scalp and strands. If used frequently, these thick products will result in hair loss and thinning.

Hair experts suggest use of normal hair gel or spray to tame your notorious baby edges; as these can easily be rinsed clear with normal shampoo and water. These also cause dryness but can be controlled by normal conditioners.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
