EDITORS’ PICK: Blueberry Bliss Control Paste
By Beauty Beat College Editors 

TOP 5 Reasons Why this fruity, tropical-scented edge Control Paste Slays the Competition!

Nina Nesbitt, Howard University
1.It’s not sticky and it’s not as heavy as other edge control products that make it feel like you used a glue stick on our edges.

2. “The argan oil and shea butter probably help this dry without flaking and crunching!

Ebony Gibbs, Florida A&M University
3. “
It has a smooth consistency PLUS it contains no sulfates, silicones or parabens!

Tia Newman, North Carolina Central University
It works when my hair is straight too and it doesn’t make my edges revert back after five minutes.

5. “It kept my edges laid all day–I mean frizz free and slicked back!

HOW TO: Create defined, crunch-free curls with Control Jelly
Our college editor, Tia, took these 3 steps to achieve soft curls for an easy, A+ curly pony 

1. Section wet hair and apply Curl Control Jelly to wet hair to capture the curl  pattern. I slide it down my hair one section at at time. Make sure to get the tips.

2. Run product through with fingers (some of our other reviewers used a  Denman brush).

3. Smooth hair down and secure with pins. Don’t forget, lay down edges with the Curl Control Paste. Done! It’s my go-to!
