"Your hair products has been a blessing to me the hicks edges.. I am looking forward to use all your hair products for my blessed hair thank you ...

Tyler, Texas

"I just had to send an email to you to let you know that I believe that your product Hicks edges is literally off the charts.  I was at the beauty supply store a few weeks ago and I was looking for something else.  I found it and then the word edges stuck out to me. I am very funny about how the edges of my hair look and I believe because of that I have over processed my hair and I was using the brown  gel as well.  Thank God for answered prayer seriously.  I purchased your product and on the way home, I was just trying to figure out in my mind exactly how was this going to work and I have not had a relaxer in about 2 months besides I'm trying to get my hair back to the healthy state that it was once in.  Nevertheless, I read the instructions washed my hair and the next day before work as I got out the Hicks edges and started smoothing it on I almost broke out in tears.  It looked like I had just permed my hair.  All I can say is that I live in Chicago and you have a customer for life!! Thank you for being unselfish with your dream".

I was introduced to the Edges pomade by the owner of Seans Braids in Indianapolis, IN a few months ago. I absofreakinglutely LOOOOOOOOVE this product. I had to unfortunately and unexpectedly relocate and I am residing in Columbia, MO. I am nearly out of the 4 FL. OZ./118 & am struggling to locate a place in the 65203 area to purchase it. I am trying desperately to avoid buying it online, because quite honestly, I do not have the financial means to pay for the product and the shipping cost.

Can you please advise on where I can find this product locally please? If it is not available in this market, can you please strongly consider establishing a relationship with a local salon/retailer to make it available to us? Columbia, MO is the 4th largest urban city in the state of MO after Kansas City, St. Louis & Springfield, MO. Thank you kindly :-)

Be Well,
Ty L. White, M.A.

"Greetings, I just found out about and purchased you Hicks Edges today and OMG this is one of the best products I've ever purchased!! I will be buying more and wish you continued success and blessings".

"I love the hair product"


"Just wanted to say that your product is great. I have been natural for 2yrs now. I have been using the Hicks Edges product for almost a year and my edges have grown. I use to wear flowers to cover up the side of my head where my edges were really bad but now I no longer have to camouflage my head with flowers. Thanks HICKS!!!" 


 I am in AWE right now!   I took notice of the hair demostration at the Women's Empowerent in Raleigh NC, and was BASICALLY SOLD!  So I purchased "Hicks Edges" and was BLESSED from the GOOD GOD ABOVE to have found this product after 7 LONG years of searching.

I wasn't sure if it would last all day, but IT DID...it really did!  No longer do I have to press my edges with a hot comb everyday, or smother it with dark hair gel.  Also, as a gospel singer, I no longer have to "BE ON EDGE" (no pun intended) while performing on stage.

I am a VERY satisfied customer, and actually jus' posted a picture of my hair on my Facebook page (and I've never ever done this).  That's how HAPPY I am.  Thanks for allowing God to use you to help MANY people around the world.

In God's Will,

Good Afternoon,
HICKS IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST PRODUCT FOR NATURALLY CURLY HAIR TO LAY DOWN. I have purchased EVERY kind of product to lay natural hair down. Hicks Edges is the best out of them all. I had to pay a bit more becaused at a neighborhood beauty supply, but it was well worth the extras. I ordered another one because I did not want to run out. Thanks.

I visited a hair store in Snellville, GA to purchase Etae products for my Goddaughter when the owner asked me what products I used on my hair as well as her hair. We both have naturally curly (3C) hair. But very thick and very dry as we both have sandy red hair (I dye my hair black so even drier). Previously I had tried everything and Miss Jessie's coily custard seemed to work but very heavy and very greasy. She asked to demo Hicks Styling gel and cream on our hair and it seemed amazing. Needless to say we purchased the combo for my hair and the combo for my goddaughters hair. I am in complete amazement. My curls are shinier but not greasy, soft and my curls are bigger and much more defined. I love it. I have boxed up all of the other dozens of products I've tried as I think this is finally what our hair needs. Thank you so much.

Testimonial: Thank you for such a wonderful well need product. If at all possible please guard this product from being duplicated by China. China has manipulated and monopolize this hair care industry and our hair is the worst it has ever been. Hicks edges and other Hicks products it's what we need to transform our hair back to its natural Glory.

I was in New York this week and I purchased the edge control & I have to say that I was wowed!! It worked beautifully, it held my edges in place after several hours of dancing and sweating, and the product didn't leave my hair hard or flaky. I was really exited to have found a product that I really liked and was performing exactly as it should on my hair [i have type 4C hair]. Unfortunately it didn't make it back home as I had to leave it with TSA since the product was 4oz and well over the accepted amount set by TSA. I was distraught because I didn't even know that it was so big and I didn't get to really enjoy my purchase. If there was a travel size I'm sure I would've bought one before investing in a full size jar. So, I'm writing this email to the company so you guys could consider making a travel size and your already loyal customers can travel with their product without worrying about TSA regulations.
