hair style products



hi, just wondering what type of product you guys are using,

i'm looking for something that's natural looking, doesn't look obvious your using something.

right now, i've been using the "Axe: messy look" product which is a paste, and has been working pretty good actually, and it's about almost done, so looking to try something else, or maybe stick with the same one.

what are the differences between using a gel and paste....??

Have you tried not washing your hair for 3 weeks?

ABC12 I know exactly what your talking about, not a wet look but just "natural form" kinda thing, where it looks like your hair just "grows like that"


wax paste is definietly the way to go, now I used to use the budget shoppers drugmart stuff but that stuff is just terrible!!! has a high water content and makes your hair flaky and just sh*t!!! (honda civic hair gel)

If you want the BMW stuff... you got to go to a hair salon, and your going to have to pay to play.

I use this stuff called "L'OREAL professional HOMME paris 4 MAT"

its a black tube that has a dispenser from the top and comes out as a wax-paste, its about 15 bucks for 80ml but you only need a tiny bit to form... Smells like a cologne too which is sweet.

If they dont have that L'OREAL makes another product which is pretty much identical to the stuff above minus the fragrance called

"L'OREAL PROFESSIONAL PLAYBALL" its a green lid kind of plastic jar. Its about $24 for 100ml

I use both religiously and honestly once I made the switch I havnt bothered going back to the drug store brands. Drug store brands lose the hold after a night of partying these dont.

Ohh and stay away from Gels, horrible for your roots! cant imagine clogging up your pores on your skull with toxic junk is good for it.

one last thing, I never seen your hair.. so what works for me might not work for you. Id go into a reputable salon one thats not too busy and tell them what you want.. Theyre professionals and theyll show you what you want. hell one of the chicks might even style your hair for free to test the product out too!

try gatsby. japanese brand of hair wax/paste that you can find at pmall. the pink/purple colours are for stronger hold, and they have other kinds like extreme hold. 15 bucks for a small container but it lasts you a long time

Got2be is a great product...I tried Gatsby but seems to lack hold when you sweat but Got2be still holds without being stiff...more natural...

I used to use spray and gels since high school. Hate the stuff now, so bad for your scalp and hair. Mine actually thinned out quite a bit over the years.

As ericdalinda posted: stick to paste waxes. They just require a tiny amount to be worked into your hair and let it breathe, too. I bought some of the Loreal Mineral FX stuff about a year ago and still have a third of the 150mL jar. Less is more with this stuff, and it works best when your hair is dry.

using a Garnier Fructis "Survivor" gel and Redken 08 Wool Shake. The 08 is a spray glue and hands down THE best product I've used to date. Lets your hair breathe like wax but has the hold of gel.



I've only found it at 1 salon in Brampton and even then I think they discontinued it now.

Apparently Redken makes a VERY good paste wax as well that is recommended on this site http://menshair.about.com/od/menspro...opproducts.htm and a quick Google search turns up other sites giving it praise as well.

got2be is a good product which I have used for years, but has high water content and can make your hair look greasy... IMO.

I use KMS molding hair paste. Works good on my asian-like hair, not greasy and you can only find it at salon product shops
