Hi guys,

Gonna head out to cut my hair and get new hair wax and spray.
Currently, I know that Swanston & Ocean sells Osis spray, so I'll pop by those 2 shops later on.

May I know where in Singapore sells Fudge Matte Hed? I'm only free today... Can someone pretty please help. Searched in the forum but no avail. TIA!
It is available at hairyportal.com. Only $19.50

So to achieve a thick looking volume + high height, clay is better than wax?

I'm having a mullet hairstyle.
To achieve hair volume, wax/clay is often not the best solution to attain this. Consider saltwater spray or hair powder to create volume. Clay is dry and gives a matte effect and typically, its strength control is better than wax. But like what i mentioned before, method of application for clay and wax differs. It MIGHT be relatively harder to apply or use clay for some people. Afterall, it roots down to finding the right product for yourself.

Actually I still don't understand.

I'm on mullet hairstyle but wanna make it look thick. I see some people's hairstyle on the streets quite thick looking. I approached and ask them, they tell me they just use wax + abit of hairspray that's all. Is it because my hair naturally not as thick as them or I'm doing something wrong?

I'm using Uevo wax and Osis+.

Ya, that could definitely be the case. My hair is really fine too so it's hard to create volume even with hair sprays. If you really want volume, then you got to use ALOT of the product on your head, which some people find it a hassle or too much to bear.

Or maybe you can consider changing hairstyles that better suit your hair texture.

I have really fine hair. Was using Lorel volume mousse an it helps to create volume. Just gotten sea salt spray and it works better, easier to blow dry as well. After that I style with wax and finish with hairspray.
My hair can stay up and not fall flat for more than 12hrs

Some have thick hair and some don't. Some have straight hair and some don't. It all depends on one so cant really replicate what others are doing onto oneself as it really depends on one. This applies to hair products as well. Some might find this good but some don't.

Got the tu-re from mr leejhong ytd, pretty ok wax haha. Hold quite durable!
U combine with sea salt spray, the effect will be even better and hairstyle can stay in shape longer.
