Here are some advantages and disadvantages of using styling gel for edges and parting hair when braiding


  1. Sleek Appearance: Styling gel helps to create a smooth and sleek look, especially when laying down edges and parting hair neatly for braids.
  2. Hold and Control: Gel provides hold and control, keeping your edges in place and helping the braids to stay neat and secure.
  3. Frizz Control: Using gel can help control frizz and flyaways along the hairline and parting, resulting in a polished braid style.
  4. Versatility: Styling gel is versatile and can be used for various braided hairstyles, allowing for creativity in styling.


  1. Build-up: Overuse of styling gel can lead to product build-up on the scalp and hair, which may be challenging to remove without proper cleansing.
  2. Dryness: Some gels contain alcohol and other ingredients that can dry out the hair and scalp, leading to potential damage if not properly moisturized.
  3. Stiffness: Certain gels can harden the hair, making it stiff and less flexible, which might be uncomfortable or restrictive for some individuals.
  4. Residue: If not washed out thoroughly, styling gel can leave a sticky residue, attracting dust and dirt, which may impact hair health.

By considering these points, individuals can make informed decisions about using styling gel for their edges and parting when braiding their hair.
