Product Review: Lotta Body Control Me Edge Gel

Happy Monday, beauts!

This is going to be a very quick post. Mainly because I do not have a lot to say other than: I HAVE FOUND AN EDGE CONTROL THAT WORKS FOR ME!

A while ago, I did a product review on the Creme of argan edge control and while I thought it was a good, non-harmful product, I was not satisfied with the effect it produced on my edges. Now, people, I NEED my edge control. I have baby pictures that show that the hair at my edges have always been scared of growing. So you know that this girl needs that extra something to make hair styles come together nicely. I continued to search and search for something that works. I was ready to try out every brand on the shelves. Enter Lotta Body.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but Lotta Body has been around for the longest time, right? I remember that name from when I was growing up. I never paid attention to Lotta Body when the name popped up again recently. I am not sure why I decided to give this product a try.

Okay, so what is this product?

Lotta body control me edge gel with coconut and shea oils. It claims to be a styling agent that controls, holds, and smoothes edges. It also claims to be non-flaking, non-sticky, non-greasy, and non-hardening. It contains the following:

Aqua (Water) (Eau), Ceteareth-25, Propylene Glycol, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Glycerin, Parfum (Fragrance), PEG-25 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Triethanolamine, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil Benzophenone-4, Limonene, Coumarin, Phenoxyethano, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Cl 42090 (Blue 1), Cl 17200 (Red 33)

Blue. It’s got a nice blue colour and the transparency reminds me of a body of water. (Side note: if you look at the ingredient list, you will see that there are two different colouring chemicals in this product – red and blue. I’m curious as to why it came out blue. Oh, the wonders of chemistry.) I’m not a fan of the smell. It smells like candy science. This is my way of saying that it smells sweet but it has a chemical smell that I have associated with non-natural hair products.Texture wise, it is pretty light and absolutely non-sticky. This is great because it slides easily from finger to, and through hair. This for me, is something that has been missing in the previous edge controls that I have tried. They are either too ‘pomadey’ or sticky or too watery or too ‘gelly’. This one, this one is perfect.

So, does it work?!

You bet it does! First of all, the result it produces on initial application is divine. The fact that it stays on the entire day is a lot more than I could have asked for!

7 hours after applying. I never hesperred it!

This edge control is soft, light, does not leave residue, sleeks hair without hardening it and feels moisturising as well. What more can a girl want? 10 full points for this edge control! Oh yes, a little does go a long way with this. You know how AB and I feel about the dime size ministry, right? Well there are some products that we have found to require dime size or even less. This is one of them.

I got this tub for $4 at my local beauty store. It is being sold on amazon for $6.99.

Have you used this edge control? How did you find it? What other edge controls will you recommend?

Have a great start to the week, beauts! Till next time.
