Give Nigelle a try. If you're looking for something good, this is it. Undoubtedly, its expensive but if you have the budget to, i will highly recommend it to you.

Reviews and recommendations saying that Quicksand is easier to play with than Uevo. For me, I would prefer to stick with Uevo though but definitely tempted to get Nigelle clay after what most have mentioned.

Because your hair is thin so its good that you use saltwater spray to give it a matte structure. And also, creating hair volume for you too. I will advise you to go for Asian brands. European brands (Sebastian, Schwarzkopf, Hanz De Fuko) are formulated to better suit Caucasian's hair texture and might not really suit you, i feel. For example, if you use Sebastian Craft Clay on your hair, because its thin and presumably straight too, its relatively hard for you to style it up. Even though with the help of saltwater spray, it might be easier but IMO, it will be easier for you to use Japan brands clay (Uevo, EBL, Nigelle). U will have an easier time to create layered or your desired hair texture.

Another point to take note is that since your hair is thin, you might want to avoid pomade or gel or wax with high shine. With shine, it will make your hair appear even thinner and finer. That would defeat the whole fundamental purpose. And do not use too much of the clay to pinch your hair ends. Tousle it while styling and for the fringe, just crunch it slightly so that it tends to look more natural.Too much pointed ends might not give you the desired voluminous look that you want.
popdod and kingcarlos like this.

Below is an elaborated description of nigelle bold make clay

Selling points:

- Top grade clay which is non sticky to create your desired texture easily with dry matte finish; Comes with pleasant smell
- Lightweight clay which does not pull the hair down yet at the same time, looking natural
- Exclusively catered to create layered hair texture and tousled look; Fantastically strong holding power to last through the day
- Absolute easiness to style and washing off
- Best for people with short to medium hair length
- Nigelle is one of the premium brands in Japan; Quality is guaranteed

Something you should also know:

- A special type of clay which is soft and wet in nature; Typical clay is dry and hard which could be relatively hard to apply
- Nigelle Bold Make Clay SH does not become firm after application which allows high level of easiness in restyling freely and flexibly
- How long can this last (daily usage): 8 to 10 months
Is your Nigelle by Milbon?

i think one more thing to consider is hair colour.... i recently dyed my hair jet black... and although i had thin looking hair, as in sparse, the intense black made it seem like its much thicker... should have dyed then let stylist cut... wrong move there... [blardy army.... tio ict....zzzzzzzz]

and... the sea spray really sia... i'd say its like a toothpaste! you dun need it per se... primary sch mass brush teeth always no toothpaste de right?...but then once u used it, you cant go back XD
+1 to OS fashion sea spray! btw jh, since u said better to apply when wet, i applied just now after bathing... see whether after one night's sleep the volume is there anot! for the lazy! haha

in other news i went to hoot vantachi hair clay also! cos it comes in a tube hahaha...but gonna take at least a month to arrive... i see some places say its comparable to nigelle sia... dunno true not... anyone got experience with this guy?

just received my samples from Hairyportal

Imperial Classic Pomade
Imperial Matt Pomade
HDF Quicksand

First impression, both the pomade smells good! fruity. The matt pomade smells like bubblegum.
HDF quicksand smells the same as sponge wax.

*paid sample from hairyportal. Will do a review after i tried out 3 of them.

Btw, does people pair sea salt spray and pomade? Like dry hair after using the spray and finish off with pomade?
