- strong hold for asian hair
- makes your hair look thicker i shit you not if you need that. i have thick hair, but my clients with thinning hair looove it.
- never flakes or shows on the hair. when i had purple, i wouldn't shampoo my hair for at least a week, whilst adding product on everyday. no buildup.

only problem is its over $30 retail for a small jar and its hard to find as the brand is only exclusively carried. i don't have it at my salon now. i think Sephora has it.

It has really good reviews. I'll give it a try. thnx

I probably won't buy a new tub of the fibre in the future though, and stick with the paste and cream.

Bought the Bumble & Bumble Sumotech came to around $36.00. I have medium length hair.

Pros - Matt Finish, Easy to wash off hands, Medium Hold (I use hairspray, the hold lasts the whole day with the sun and wind) and small amounts required not alot. No smell and running hands through the hair doesn't leave a greasy residue like other waxes and clays.

Cons - Price & Amount.

Having tried Gatsby (Gray, Pink, Purple ) and Xtah Craft Clay I'd say the Sumotech is superior to them Equivalent would be Xtah Crude Clay, but it cost more and is easier to wash of hands after applying.

I have used the hexagonal gatsby clay, sebastian clay and UNO water wax, but I'm now looking for products you would find in a Caucasian drug stores like shoppers drug mart, because I work there and get discounts. anyone heard of the company joico? How do their products hold up? I have thick and rigid Asian hair btw, so I always require a bit of layering and thinning whenever I get my cut.

the hongers probably are the ones that use the gatsby... if you think hongers are people who don't use dippity doo, however, you are wrong. hair gel from superstore is sooo high school.. wait.. that's probably the same people who get 10 dollar haircuts too

Best combo for short hair, IMO

Gatsby Perfect Hold (black), followed by Gatsby Technical Design Clay for details in spikes (a little goes a LONG way, one jar lasts forever).

Finish with a light mist of any medium-strong hair spray. I use "Fudge Skyscraper" an Australian brand that works well.

I have recently switched out perfect hold with UNO Fiber Neo Ultra Solid Wax, and the texture is different. Not sure if I like it better or not at this time. It's just... different It feels a little bit dryer.

What do salons like Zeal, Chura, etc use?

I heard the top salons in Asia use Number Three Wax. Anyone know where to get that in Van? I know Rakuten sells it online
