A sleek bun is one of my go-to Protective Styles with my natural hair. It takes about 20 minutes to complete, and the style is suitable for just about any occasion. However, whilst I was doing my cousins hair last week, she was quick to mention that there is no point in using Edge Control as it doesn’t work on her 4C Textured hair. I used it anyway, and it did lay down her edges, but I was forced to wonder after she left how long the gel lasted.
Typically when I do this style it lasts for about the whole day, however the sleekness that I achieve at first doesn’t remain throughout the day. My edges would simply frizz up during the day, but still remain relatively flat on my head. To combat this I leave my headscarf on for about 3-4 hours, you can check out my method and the products that I use here. Do you have any suggestions of gels that last for the whole day on 4B/4C textured hair? Comment below!
