Anyone with even the gentlest curl in their hair knows that good hair products are hard to find, and even harder to keep. So when you see a product working well on someone, you ask and just pray that person will reveal their hair care secrets. To figure out what edge control product Serena Williams uses, other Black women went straight to the most accessible source—her husband, Alexis Ohanian.
On Twitter, a user named Tracy tweeted at Ohanion, asking him to go into his and Williams’ bathroom to see what edge control Williams uses, begging him, “We MUST know what keeps Cousin Serena’s edges LAID through all those games!”
Hey Cousin @alexisohanian, we need you to do us a HUGE favor! Can you dip into the bathroom and let us know what edge control @serenawilliams uses? We MUST know what keeps Cousin Serena’s edges LAID through all those games!— Tracy (@TraBoogie) September 18, 2018
Another woman chimed in, “I was just saying to a friend that her edges are always looking so good.”
A third woman, Anno Tshipa, was waiting with bated breath, marveling that Williams’ edges appear to remain perfect even through “over two hours of sweat, humidity, toweling!”
And wow, did Ohanian come through. Or, he at least, he tried to. In a tweet replying to all three women, Ohanian shared a screenshot of the text messages between him and Serena, with Ohanian opening, “Why are your edges so good?”
“Eh???” she responds, to which he explains that women on Twitter had been asking him.
“Oh lol cause I use a new gel I just discovered,” she replies with two shrugging emoji.
“Yessss. What’s it called?” he asks, perhaps finally getting to the moment of truth!
Alas, some confidences are too powerful to reveal.
“‘Serena’s secret,'” she replies.
Perhaps the world may never know what keeps Williams’ edges laid during the most intense physical feats, but at least Ohanian tried.
Well, you tried. I just hope she's working on a new product line because this Louisiana humidity is no joke. We need the good stuff too.— The T.Kae Experience (@TKaeExperience) September 19, 2018
