How to Lay your Edges in 3 ways | Natural Hair

When you want a neat look to a hairstyle, laying your edges can pull the all style together and make it look even more presentable. Depending on the texture of the hair located along your hairline, it can be difficult to do this.

 The most common and most effective product to use is an edge tamer. There are several types of edge tamers from the light consistency to the thick paste kind. Which every type you choose depends on your hair texture. If you have more coarser hair, choose a thicker paste, and if you have fine hair, choose light consistency one.

The hold level of the product you decide to use also matter, so be mindful of that. If you prefer a more natural look, you can also try using thick oils like castor oil.

Some people also prefer using gels. Remember, if you do use gel, always moisture your hair prior to applying the gel to your edges.

1. Spritz edges very lightly with water to moisturize your edges and also help in spreading edge tamer.

2. Apply your edge tamer of choice. Smoothen with fingers as you apply.
3. Apply a little spritz of water and brush edges with a soft brush.

4. If your edges have a thicker texture, use a scarf like a bandana to lay your edges, or double wrap your satin scarf. If you have finer hair, use a scarf. To prevent lines, don't tie too tightly.


  1. I know I say this every time I post but your babies are adorable.

    This video brings back memories from my perm days lol I can't even tell you the last time I worried about my edges.

    I was never a big fan of gel (still not) but I did do the shea butter and scarf trick.

    1. Thank you Thank you. LOL! I am not a big fan of gel too, only use it sparingly. Whenever, I do, I make sure that it contains no alcohol. The shea butter is good because you also get the "sealant properties" while laying your edges.
      Thanks for watching.

  2. This was not only informative but super fun too. I can watch big and Lil sis all day long. I really love how you include the girls in this video. Its very educational and I have to get my daughter to watch it with me again.

    1. Thank you so much! We love doing this video. Can you believe that Big Sis now is giving me "video topics"? LOL! Have a blessed day.
