Optimum Amla Legend Edge Tamer Review

Even Though I'm an Adult, My Baby Hair Still Gets Unruly

Remember back in the '90s when everyone controlled their baby hair with gel (yeah, we're looking at you Jennifer Lopez). Well that style is not coming back, thank God, but having a strong pomade in your hair arsenal is still a must. Recently, I've been using the Optimum Amla Legend Edge Tamer ($7) and an old toothbrush to smooth back shorter pieces around my hairline.

While some gels can leave white flakes and sticky residue all over your forehead (which in turn can cause acne), this balm does not. Instead, it goes on clear. It's also great for taming flyaways when I pull my Afro back into a puff. The key ingredient that keeps it from drying crusty is the amla oil sourced from ancient ayurvedic rituals. The medium-hold formula is perfect for smoothing out baby hair but not enough to create zigzag designs with your sideburns — because that will forever be a beauty faux pas.
