Are you set on using wax only? I use a salon-grade hair gel sold only at salons. It's call Micro V Fix Gel. 200ml squeeze bottle usually going for $10 - $15 and lasts a while for me. I've been using it for over 5 years.

I use Sebastian's Xtah Crude Clay. I've been using the same bottle for about a year... it'll last you for a long time.

I think it also depends what you want. Shiny or matte?

I tried about half the gels/wax they sell in those discounted places like megahair or the one in richmond centre.

My favourite is Giesel. It's not very popular but it is a good product that's easy to put on and wash off. They sell it at the chinese hair salon in richmond centre for about $20. It's good for camping!

American Crew Matte Fiber Molding Cream is also good. I like it because they sell it everywhere and it's cheap ($13). Some people prefer the American Crew Tea Tree wax but I find that they're pretty similar and it isn't worth it to pay extra for the tea tree oil because you don't feel anything. It's not as easy to put on or wash off as Giesel but I find it has a stronger hold. If you put too much you'll get white dots on your hair.

And generally, matte is safer and gives you the most natural look. I get some compliments when using matte but along time ago when I was using glossy, people would say that my hair looks greasy.

yeah i want something matte. I agree if you put too much gel in, it ends up just looking wet or greasy. Thanks for the suggestions guys, i'll go try and hunt a few of these down.

I'm currently using this as well, it's been working quite well. I have used "Matrix Switch Up Gel-Wax". Also not a bad choice. Matrix has a pretty decent line of Hairstyling products.

It's wax.
And it's bad. Tastes forever to wash the wax off.

Sebastian is prob the best wax i've used.

^ I agree, although I think it's just as hard to wash out as Gatsby.

If you've tried these brands and they're not strong enough for you, why not try using some hair spray? Got2B Glued freezing spray if you wanna give it a try.

I've been experimenting with the pink moving rubber, along with purple... pink is more suited for my needs, as my hair is shorter (in a context compared to those crazy japanese guys)

However, I agree that hairspray is a good investment.

I have pink and purple.
Pink is for short hair, purple is for mediumish hair.
but really...when I compare to honger hair, I have short hair even when I consider it "long"... haha.

I recently switched who cuts my hair and I learned that a lot has to do with your specific haircut. If he/she knows what she's doing, they can cut exactly the style you want, and then you don't need to rely on gobs and gobs of wax and hairspray.

i'll give this gatsby stuff a try. I have pretty short hair, so it's tough to mold it when it's shorter. Any idea where i can buy it?
