I have discovered edge control gel. Interesting stuff....so much thicker than a gel or pomade but without the grease, or crunch. It will straiten out your curls so be careful to only use it where its needed....like the edges of a ponytail. Or under a headband...best to get the headband in place around neck...apply the gel...then push the headband to its final placement on the hair. I'm gonna be buying more of this!
