    Comments about Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Edge Control Smoother:

    It is clear and lightweight; however, It didn't work for my 3C hairdresser type. There was little to no change to my edges. I felt a small amount of irritation after I applied it. I plan to return my product to ULTA for a refund. Hopefully, I'll find a product that has more natural / organic products that work for my hair type. I don't like products with numerous ingredients that I cannot pronounce.

      Comments about Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Edge Control Smoother:

      Every edge control that I have tried disappointed me. My scalp is very sensitive and will dry and flake if chemicals and such touch my scalp. This is the first edge control that does not dry or make my edges flake. It also holds my baby hairs all day. TRY IT! LOVE IT!!!!

        Comments about Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Edge Control Smoother:

        I found out about this gel from a YouTuber named Tiarra Monet. I bought it and was hooked! This gel lays down your edges and it does help it grow. Excellent product!

            I really like this edge control! It goes on without leaving a film and last throughout the day without the flaky gunky build up you get from hair gel and every other edge control! I have tried may over the years to tame my Diana Ross like thickness and frizz and this by far is my favorite!
