Arrow By Vilain Gold Digger or Hanz de Fuko Claymation?

By Vilain Gold Digger or Hanz de Fuko Claymation?
Dec 05, 2016


With so many different hair products out there, it can get pretty confusing when it comes to deciding on which hair wax to get. Hereís a full comparison between the Hanz de Fuko Claymation and the By Vilain Gold Digger, and which one you should get.

1. STRENGTH AND HOLD

Both the Hanz de Fuko Claymation and By Vilain Gold Digger have Ďsuper high holdí and Ďextreme holdí, but which is better? In terms of strength, I would say the Claymation is stronger. While the By Vilain Gold Digger boasts a hold strength of up to 12 hours, the HDF Claymation can last just as long in harsher conditions. However, the HDF Claymation is less pliable and harder to wash.

P.S. If you're looking to get the Gold Digger but need a little boost in hold, try it with some Sidekick. Click here to see how Sidekick helps.

2. HAIR TYPE

Different products resonate with different hair types. Since the HDF Claymation can boost volume, it works better if you have naturally neat and straight hair. Otherwise, the By Vilain Gold Digger may be better, because it gives more control and is more pliable. If you already have the volume, why not use the Gold Digger and get more control?

3. HAIRSTYLE AND FINISH

Although the Hanz de Fuko Claymation and By Vilain Gold Digger gives a matte finish, the HDF Claymation is more matte. (More matte? How can anything be more matte?) This is because the HDF Claymation has dry shampoo and some Quicksand incorporated into it, so it just soaks up all the extra grease, leaving you looking sharp and fresh. If you intend to pull off a neater, more polished look, then the Claymation will suit you more. (However if you want a polished look with a medium shine finish, the Silver Fox is definitely worth a try). I believe the Gold Digger works way better when youíre looking for something more casual and if you have shorter hair.

4. PERSONAL PREFERENCE

Personally, I donít find organic products better than non-organic products, especially when it comes to hair products. I will not buy something just because itís organic. When it comes to hair quality and scalp health, as long as youíre using a conditioner, youíll be fine. So if you say youíre looking to get the HDF product range Ďbecause itís organicí, you may want to think again. Look at what else the HDF can offer, and if it will really work for your hair type and the hairstyle you want. Donít buy it because itís organic. Buy it because it suits you.

All in all, I think it all boils down to what you want, what your hair type is, and what kind of hairstyle you want to achieve.

Arrow The perfect brush for your hair type

The perfect brush for your hair type
Jun 02, 2017


A hair brush is essential to everyone. It aids in blow drying and prevents dandruff buildup, it aids in pre-styling and helps you get your hair in the right shape before styling, it helps prevent hair from tangling and detangles it as well... Itís essential.

However, the million dollar question is: which brush should I get first? (At this point I should just tell you to get ALL of them, but honestly, nobody needs that many different types of brushes.)

1. ALL ROUND HAIR STYLING BRUSH

Itís inexpensive, boosts volume (really useful for people with thin hair), and really great for pre-styling. While blow drying, the round brush can be used to form curls and bends in the right directions so your hair doesnít just stick upwards. Styling your hair is definitely easier after using the round brush. Itís not that great if you have thick hair, though. Mainly because the bristles are pretty packed up so there will be quite a lot of tugging.

- Good price point

- Good for pre-styling

- Recommended for those with thin and straight hair

- Suitable hair length: Short to medium

2. BY VILAIN 9-ROW BRUSH

Ah, the classic styling brush for men. Itís actually the best seller among all the other brushes we have here. 9 rows of bristles packed in an average sized brush gives you maximum control during pre-styling. Those bestowed with thick hair will be grateful for this feature because it styles a large section of your hair effortlessly so you spend less time pre-styling, with better and more defined results. It also tames even the wildest hair and helps style bends without making your hair look too big.

- Good for pre-styling

- Gives very good control, can style large amount of hair at one time

- Recommended for those with thick hair

- Suitable hair length: Medium to long


3. BY VILAIN SKELETON BRUSH

While some guys like their hair to be as sleek and as neat as possible, some prefer a more natural and effortless look. (Canít let the ladies know you spent 30 minutes on your hair, am I right? ) The skeleton brush is perfect for those trying to achieve a natural look. This brush gives your hair increased volume and a little bit of bounce so that the hair product wonít easily weigh it down. Use it after styling to form natural and inconsistent waves in your hairstyle for a naturally messy look.

- Great to use during blow drying, detangles hair easily

- Adds bounce and volme to lifeless hair

- To be used after styling for a more natural look

- Recommended for any hair type and length


4. BY VILAIN PADDLE BRUSH

The By Vilain Paddle Brush should mainly be used for hair care instead of styling. Not only does it help to untangle hair, it actually prevents your hair from getting tangled up in the first place. Use it before bed to separate all your hair, and use it before the shower so that all your hair products can reach each strand. The paddle brush is also very good for guys who do not have the habit of washing your hair before styling. Just use the paddle brush before jumping in to your styling routine.

Prevents tangles and bad bedheads

Great for guys who donít wash their hair before styling

Recommended for those with thick, curly and unmanageable hair

Suitable for all hair length



All in all, each brush really has its' own benefits. Take a look at the recommended hair types and hair lengths to help you decide on which brush to get. I definitely recommend starting off with a styling brush first.

Lightbulb The Right Mister for your Hair

The Right Mister for your Hair
Jul 13, 2016

If you're looking for a hair product that gives you a natural look and does not damage your hair, we highly recommend trying out the Mister Pompadour range of products. With all the different products in their range, here's a post on the difference between the Natural Beeswax Paste, Moroccan Texture Paste, Peppermint Pomade, and the Sculpting Clay.


NATURAL BEESWAX PASTE

- Matte finish with strong hold

The Natural Beeswax Paste (yes, it's made of beeswax, and yes, it does smell a little like honey) gives a natural matte finish. Its' strong hold can keep your hairstyle in place for at least 6 to 8 hours depending on hair length, but the formula does not stiffen your hair.

This paste works best for those with thicker hair and if you're looking for a hairstyle with some texture and if you like it a little messy.


SCULPTING CLAY

- Matte finish with medium hold, volume boosting

I would say the Sculpting Clay is the most underrated product of the range. The hold is not as strong as the Beeswax Paste, but the lightweight formula can give your hair a volume boost. This also means that your hair won't be weighed down by the product, so even if there isn't super strong hold, it's still pretty decent. The Sculpting Clay is best used as a pre-styler, cocktailed with other products with higher hold such as the Beeswax Paste or Original by BluMaan.

The Sculpting Clay is great for people with fine hair and if you're looking to get a pompadour or if you have an undercut. Apply more for a touch of healthy shine.


MOROCCAN TEXTURE PASTE

- Medium hold with low shine

This... is not a paste. It's more like a styling cream but with better hold and less shine. The paste is super pliable and very easy to apply, with almost zero tugging. The paste doesn't harden over time so you can easily adjust your hairstyle if it ever goes out of shape. The low shine makes your hair appear clean, and not dry but not greasy either. And, as the name suggests, it adds texture to your hairstyle without making it look like you use product in your hair.

This texture paste is best for people with short hair. Works for both messy and casual hairstyles, and for those who prefer to have a bit of shine over a dry matte finish.


PEPPERMINT POMADE

- Medium hold with high shine

It smells great! Literally smells like fresh peppermint right out of the jug. As a water-based pomade, the hold is generally better than most water-based pomades out there. The difference is, this pomade won't damage your hair and scalp and the shine, while maintaining the sleek look, does not make your hair and forehead look or feel greasy. On top of that, the pomade is really easy to wash off because it's water based.

If you're usually using pomades and looking for a product that is better for your hair, try out the Peppermint Pomade!


Did I mention that not only do these products give you a more natural and original look, they are also great for your hair and scalp. Made with premium ingredients that are paraben free and free from other damaging alcohols and chemicals, this range of products can nourish your hair from the root to the tip while still delivering in terms of great style.

Lightbulb Morris Motley - What are you paying for?

The Hair Styling Guide Every Man Should Know
Aug 10, 2016

The Morris Motley products are a recent addition to our store. Now, it is a bit more expensive than the other products we have, but we promise you, it's worth it.

THE LOWDOWN


Morris Motley products are formulated in Melbourne, Australia. Created by a man with real passion for hair, he was searching high and low for a product that will not damage your hair while delivering high standards in terms of styling. When he couldn't find anything that fits the bill, he came up with three styling products that does just that.


TREATMENT STYLING BALM


Cool name. And it's a product worthy of the name. The Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm is not described as a hair styling product, but a hair care product. The smooth balm allows you to evenly spread the product in your hair without any tugging, and it's packed with so much amino acids so keep your hair nourished and moisturised throughout the day. To those of you who prefer to skip the routine of conditioning your hair, you should really consider using a product that doubles as a hair care and hair styling product.

The Balm is also easy to wash off so you don't need to use too much shampoo which dries up your natural oils. Not only that, in humid Singapore where you simply have to wash your hair everyday, it's almost impossible not to strip off all natural oils from your hair.

Some of you may find that the product works just as well as other, more affordable products. Sure, matte finish, super high hold, very pliable... Many products out there can do just that. But you can definitely tell the difference once you start using this treatment styling balm. If your hair is healthy, it becomes easier to control, easier to style, and it just looks better. In the long run, this is definitely the better product.

The original Treatment Styling Balm comes with a matte finish, but recently Morris Motley came up with a new variation of the balm called Chrome which gives the same benefits but with a controlled shine.

Unlike other products, you're paying for quality hair care and styling product when you buy Morris Motley. It's an investment that will generate more value than you can imagine in just a 100ml jug.

We'll talk about the Cleansing Oil in another post, but, long story short, why would you wash your hair with shampoo that just eats up all kinds of oil (including your natural hair oil) and still expect to have healthy hair?

Lightbulb The Difference Between Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm and Chrome

The Difference Between Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm and Chrome
Aug 15, 2016

The Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm came first, and it comes with a firm hold and a matte finish. This styling Balm boasts the ability to nourish and treat damaged hair, all while helping you achieve the hairstyle you need.

After the Treatment Styling Balm came out, there was a really high demand for it, and many have requested a version with a shiny finish.

Rob Mason, the Barber and hairstyling extraordinaire who created the styling Balm then came up with Morris Motley Chrome, which does the exact same thing as the styling Balm, except now it gives a nice shiny finish.

Another thing to note about the Chrome is that you can adjust the amount of shine you want based on the styling technique and the amount of product you use. Layer them bit by bit as you are styling your hair until you achieve your desired level of shine.

Long story short, the treatment styling balm came first and comes with matte finish, while the chrome is the same thing with a shiny finish. The chrome can be adjusted to achieve your own desired level of shine by varying the amount of product used and your styling technique.

For a more detailed explanation on what the treatment styling balms do, read this.

BYRD Matte vs BYRD Light vs BYRD Classic- What’s the difference?
Aug 20, 2016

The BYRD pomades all differ in terms of shine, texture, and hold, and has wax-based and water-based pomades. However, they are all really easy to wash because none of them are oil-based. They are also formulated with microcrystalline wax which gives greater control and pliability.

SHINE

From lowest to highest, the Matte Pomade has zero shine, followed by the Classic Pomade which gives medium shine and the light pomade has high shine. Rest assured, even though the Light Pomade is super shiny, it’s a water-based pomade so you won’t look greasy and you can stay feeling fresh throughout the day.

HOLD

From strongest to weakest, the Matte Pomade is the strongest of them all. Followed by the Classic Pomade which has higher than average hold, and the Light Pomade which can last you about 4 to 6 hours. You can see the trend for hold is similar to the trend for shine, and this is because the ingredient used to give you a shiny finish includes oil, which will weigh down your hair over time. The Light Pomade has a very lightweight formula that prevents the product from weighing down your hair, so it still has quite an acceptable level of hold. However, if you want a shiny finish that can last, we do recommend using the BYRD Classic, or try pre-styling with the Matte Pomade.

TEXTURE

Both the Light and Classic Pomades give you a smooth texture, so you can tame down all your stubborn and unmanageable stray hair. This gives you a neat and clean finish. Use a wide-toothed comb after styling to split your hair for a more natural look. If you’re looking for a messy style, ruffled look, the Matte Pomade gives off medium texture so it looks a little more gritty and effortlessly styled.


POINTS TO NOTE

BYRD CLASSIC POMADE

It’s wax-based and comes in a creamy paste. Suitable for people with unmanageable hair and if you’re trying to grow out your hair. Works best for medium to long hair.

BYRD MATTE POMADE

Water-based pomade and comes in a textured paste. Great for short to medium length hair and if you want a matte finish and a ruffled hairstyle. Has the strongest hold among the three.

BYRD LIGHT POMADE

Water-based pomade with high shine and zero texture. Great for all hair types. To increase the hold, we recommend pre-styling with a little bit of the Matte Pomade.
