Edge Care with Edge Naturale- Edge Naturale Follicle Enhancer Review
There are several essential parts of a self-care routine. Haircare is a major component of self-care. After all, our hair has been dubbed as our crown of glory after all aha. No, but in all seriousness, I started caring for my hair during my middle school years and I did not always care for my edges. I literally tense up when I think of all the stress I placed on my edges with tight ponytails and tight buns day after day. It really was not until I got older that I started to develop a consistent routine to care for my edges. Now as an adult, I jump on opportunities to take care of myself. So, I decided to take the time to further care for my edges by trying out Edge Naturale’s Follicle Enhancer.
It just so happens that I saw their page weeks before the company reached out. The experience I saw from others was promising. So, I was happy to give their product a try!

Okay, so back to edges. They can literally make or break a hairstyle. I wish I didn’t have to be so dramatic here, but you know that I am right! There have been many times in the past when I have opted out of a hairstyle because I did not want to show off my less than dense edges.
When I really started to take my hair health seriously, I realized it was possible to undo some of the damage I caused with a routine and of course lifestyle changes. For me, this meant limiting the frequency of tight ponytails, no sew-ins, and sadly also limiting the frequency of braids.
Changing your routine may look like this or it could be completely different. However, one thing is for sure, you must figure out what works for you and stick with it to see a change in your edges.
In addition, to avoiding certain hairstyles I have started to incorporate certain oils and products into my routine to assist with my hair needs. Check out this video to learn more about my current favorite products. Now, while I have seen some positive results in edge health, I believe there is always room to strengthen my routine.
I am glad I got the chance to add the Follicle Enhancer from Edge Naturale to my hair care routine. I have been using this product a few days shy of 3 weeks consistently. While I did not expect to see drastic changes as our hair only grows so fast per month, about ½ inch, I was excited to see the promise of change and to share my thoughts about the product with you.
Let us get into the deets, shall we?
About the Company
Edge Naturale prides themselves on using natural ingredients in their products. These ingredients include jojoba oil, argan oil, and peppermint oil all of which have great benefits for edge and hair health. Jojoba and argan oil both have been cited for aiding in scalp health, moisture, and strength all of which are important for your edges. While peppermint oil has earned its reputation as a scalp stimulator.
The companies target audience is individuals who have experienced damage to their edges due to health conditions or lifestyle habits. Their main product, and what appears to be a bestseller, is their Follicle Enhancer. And while they have other products this seems to be the one that is the truth per customer reviews. There are many women raving about how they took care of their edges with the Edge Naturale Follicle Enhancer with photos to back it up. Check some out here.
Packaging, Ease of Use, Consistency
The product comes in a cute 2oz/ 59 ml container. Small packaging is always cute to me. Make it make sense! Anyway, the packaging is easy to open and you will have no worries about spillage. I have found that many products targeting edge health can cause a lot of fuss due to packaging but this is not the case with this product. For such a small container I think it holds a lot of product. As I mentioned earlier, I have been using this Follicle Enhancer product for about 3 weeks, but the container still looks full.
The consistency of the product is smooth. It is not a strict oil formula, so it feels more like a cream. Depending on how much you use it can take a while to fully rub in so a light hand may be best with the application. The packaging recommends you use the product once or twice daily. Currently, I have been using the product once per day.
Okay, let’s talk about my experience with the Follicle Enhancer.
Experience with Edge Naturale
Like I mentioned earlier it can take a while to fully rub the product in and you want to make sure you do so because the product is white in color and leaving remnants behind would not be cute! Also, we want to care for our edges so rough application would not be helpful here. The application process as a whole was smooth and quick. Once the product touches your scalp it starts to melt with the help of rubbing. You want to make sure that you are only focusing on your scalp and gently rubbing the product in while focusing on your problem areas.
Shortly after applying the product, I noticed a cooling sensation which was nice! I have had my fair share of products with peppermint oil in them and everyone does not get it right, but this product provides a nice subtle tingle. I find this relaxing, especially after a stressful day.
I took pictures a few days after I started using this product and then again after 2.5 weeks. Please note my hair looks different in the first picture which was prior to me retwisting my starter locs. While I did not see drastic changes I saw indications of promise!
I noticed a specific area started to connect more. I cannot see my scalp so easily here which is exciting! As I said, I have only been using this product short of 3 weeks so obviously I will need more time to see greater change.
Moving forward with Edge Naturale Follicle Enhancer
I am sticking with this product and I look forward to using it all up! The testimonials are too great to walk away. Plus, the promise I have seen along my hairline is encouraging. I have been applying the product once a day, but the packaging recommends either once or twice. I plan to apply the product twice every other day and once on the days in between. I believe this will allow me to see if an increase in the application will enhance my results. Lastly, when I care for my edges I am looking for products that are hassle-free and this Edge Naturale Follicle Enhancer fits that criteria. This product seamlessly fits into my hair care routine allowing me to care for my edges with ease so it’s a keeper. I look forward to keeping this product in my hair care routine as I continue to care for my edges.
What are you using to care for your edges?
