ORS: Edge Control

Wherein Naomi doesn’t remember her lesson from last time and takes another crack at this product review thing.

Do you remember, like, 5 seconds ago when I made a blog post about trying out a product and regret it instantly? Thanks for laughing with me. Or laughing at me, whichever it was.

The second item on the chopping block has this long-winded, pretentious name. The name is (take a deep breath): Organic Root Hair Gel, Edge Control, Olive Oil. I fell asleep halfway through reading that. All you gotta know is, it’s a type of thick gel used to slick back baby hairs. Wow, rereading that sentence, I am inexplicably reminded of baby back ribs. Did I mention that I’m hungry? Anyway, when your baby hairs are running wild and ruining your hairstyle, this is the shit you run to.

Picture’s are from amazon.com. Only paid $4.99!


I’m actually a fan of this brand because I’ve used their conditioner with positive results. Without further ado, let’s get straight into it.


Nothing to report to the scent. I can say that the gel felt almost solid, wax-like. It was rather hard rubbing some on my finger, so I just grabbed a bit with my nail. Is it supposed to be this thick?

Does it Work?

Eh, not really. So I slicked some of my baby hairs back with the wax, only to find my forehead looking shiny as hell. I could see my reflection in my edges, that’s how bad it was. I’m not trying to look like the cover of Rihanna’s “Shine Bright Like a Diamond”. Also, the wax felt oddly tight on my head. I don’t know, to put it in perspective, it felt like someone was literally pulling my hair back.


Out of curiosity, I searched up the product on Amazon so I could see what others said in the “Reviews” section.



I was shook. I actually ran to the bathroom and washed my hair (for the second time that day). Nuh-uh, I’m not losing my hair over this bummy $5 product.

The reviews only got progressively worse.


I can say with certainty that my hair hasn’t fallen out (bless the lord), but I am rethinking this whole guinea pig thing.

Overall: 0/10. No hair product is worth having your hair fall out. I think I’m going to take a short break from the product review thing, if that’s okay with you.
