Post Does Uncle Funkys Daughter Extra Butter Lay your edges down?

Hi everyone I just had to ask if UFD Extra Butter lays down your edges... Im staying away for using gels to lay down my edges, so Ive been using MJ BabybutterCreme to lay down my edges, but Im down to the end of my jar of MJBB and I don't want to shell out almost $40 for that product if I can find something else that has better ingredients (no mineral oil esspecially), and at a better price. Please let me know. If anyone who has 4b type hair and has used UFD Extra Butter.... holla back!!!! Thanks

Sorry but I haven't tried it. I know that some people use pomades for that.

Personally, I use aloe vera gel and other natural gels (qhemet, kiss my face, aubrey organics) for slicking.

Hey 4bcurlygirl,
It is very moisturizing, but I don't find it lays my edges down. Hope this helps!

ITA with Tawanalee. The Extra Butter works good on my twistouts but not for the edges. I don't like gel either but my edges are hard to slick down.

I use EcoStyler gel. Komaza Care Coconut Hair Pudding works great too. The Komaza Care doesn't flake either. Every other product will moisturize but not give the hold my hair needs.

I don't have 4b hair, but I have the UFD extra butter, and I don't think that would work for your edges.

I think Mygel would work for you, it's basically the same as LetsJam!, but with all natural ingredients.

Yaaaaaaaayyyy!!! Yet ANOTHER all natural product to try!!! The only gel I found that doesn't dry hard for me is MHC Coconut Hair Gel. Dries soft with a soft hold. But I love to try new things...the PJ in me is ecstatic!! Thank you dear!!!

Hey Chaoticbliss, over the weekend I was at WholeFoods and seen a gel "Super Grow" it looks just like the "MyGel" and has the same ingredients, so I picked it up. I'll let you know how it works
