Carol's Daughter Macadamia Hold & Control Smoother vs Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Edge Control

I have been wanting to try Carol's Daughter Macadamia Hold & Control Smoother but the $22 price tag has kept me from trying it. But I looked up the ingredients and compared it to my beloved Organic Root Stimulator Edge Control and the ingredients are nearly identical! ORS Edge Control is only $4.99 and can easily be purchased at most BSS, Walgreen's, etc. The only negative to the Edge Control is that it contains Parabens, but that honestly doesn't bother me. Another differeince is the main oil used in the product, Macademia vs Olive. Check out the comparison below.

Description:
It’s a smooth-style essential. Forget sticky pomades, crunchy gels and heavy waxes! This frizz-fighting gel-pomade-wax combo, made with super ingredient Macadamia Oil, provides amazingly long-lasting hold without any sticky, greasy, or flaky mess. It instantly eliminates wild, unruly hair that sticks out and threatens to sabotage your slicked-back styles, polished ponytails, or tapered cuts. Really, it does just about everything!

Price: $22.00

Size: 2.25 oz

Directions: Get rid of face-framing frizzies by using fingertips to apply the product onto dry hair. Mold, sculpt, flatten and smooth hair as desired and get ready for seriously fierce hair.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Ceteareth-25, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Glycerin, PEG-7 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Honey Extract, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Rosemarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Equisetum Arvense Extract, Lawsonia Inermis Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Symphytum Officinale Rhizome/Root Extract, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Cocodimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum)

Description: This unique alcohol free formula gives the hair superior hold without flaking. It slicks and holds down the edges while adding shine and moisture. Olive Oil Edge Control™ contains natural ingredients and vital nutrients that work together to keep hair looking its best. It is great for relaxed and natural hair.

Price: $4.99

No, I haven't tried either one, but after reading this I am going to try the Organic Edge Control. My daughter has been mentioning it to me. And now since I know that it is similar to Miss Jessie's I will get it.

Thanks for the post!

CurlyChellez said...

@Tonya Let me kknow how it works out for you!

Yes, I've tried ORS Edge Control and well, love hate relationship lol. I first used Elasta QP glaze and it was a greasy mess. Went to ORS and let's just know how Mary mustve felt in Something About Mary when she found some supposed "hair gel" LOL on Ben Stiller, used it and the hair stuck straight up lol.

CurlyChellez said...

@кcℓ (n_n) LOL @ the Something About Mary reference. I have only really used it on my edges and with straight hair, so maybe thats why I have had good results with it.

Thank you so much for this post. I had bought the Carols Daughter from Macy's for my daughters hair. I knew I paid a lot for it but I didnt know I paid 22.00 until I called. I was just online looking for something comparable to the Carols daughter without the pricetag also and here was your post. I was otw to Walgreens but I was reluctant because I didnt know if it was similar to what I was looking for because I definately did not want the gel type or greasy jam type feel. That carols daughter gives and excellent smooth firm hold without the shiny or the flakes that can sometimes come with using gel. Great thanks so much.

CurlyChellez said...

@Lia since this post I have found many different edge control products from different brands ranging in price. I am currently using a new brand that I found in my local BSS. It was about $7.99 and so far so good!

Lia said...

I just wanted to thank you. I bought the olive oil edge control to use on my daughter's hair..PERFECT! Much more inexpensive than the Carol's Daughter macadamia gel and its almost identical but 20.00 plus dollars cheaper. At CVS with my rewards card even got a bonus for buying there. I love the edge control. Thank you again so much!

@Lia
no problem. Glad I could help! :)
