Hey, carbolic soap bars? tried googling carbolic shampoo to no avail.

I scanned through almost the entire offering from watsons and guardian already, they don't anything specific for oily scalp(or specifically for men for that matter), only came across this french brand one in guardian, didn't look too appealing tho, tried body shop, they had one for oily scalp, didn't look appealing too.

Gonna find time to visit specialize shop like whathewants, any other place to recommend me for a huge range of men's haircare product? been browsing through some online offerings too, headache uh, so many selection online!
Q8 Cosmetics

this one.

Hello! Pardon my newbie-ness Just wanted to consult yall experts on what's the best hair wax/clay for thick hair of 8- 12cm long that has an all-day strong hold without the use of hairspray. preferably easy to wash off too (i have skin/scalp issues) Matte or shiny look both are fine

so far i've tried the following products and am not satisfied one way or another:

1. Gatsby wild shake purple- has the ideal holding power, but difficult to wash out. kinda itchy too

2. gatsby mat grunge grey- good for texturising, but not much hold

2. dominate out of bed- dryness makes it hard to apply evenly. holding power is weak unless i apply a lot, which it then looks oddly stiff and plastic

3. obsidian dual touch wax- hardly any hold, but it does a great job of providing a healthy looking shine and is the easiest to wash off, no itch at all no matter how much i apply
Depends on what hair style you wanna do.

Gold digger got strong hold and it's good to tame thick hair
however if your hairstyle is damn wild. I suggest you finish it off with hair spray.

Can also try sea salt spray if you want the shape after blow dry. If yours is thick and stubborn. Then sea salt spray + gold digger combo is good.
If thick and soft, gold digger is good enough.

Alternatively you can try nigelle bold make clay. Soft clay with strong hold.

If not the new hdf claymation. Clay wax combo but I nv use before, can't comment much. Haha

It boils down to what you're trying to style.

Anyway, Kent brush does soothe out my hair while blow drying.

To create volume, I think best use fingers to create movement in the root for first round of blowing. Then semi dry alr, see the volume alr, then comb and style the shape using Kent styler till fully dry.

hey thanks for responding. I dont have permed hair nor am i going for curly styles. I actually want to wear a slick back/side part hair style. However Cant seem to blow dry it nicely..

which brush from kent is useful/practical for blow drying that kinda hair style?
Use fingers to learn how to blow dry first then start to use brush. Brush not easy. For more advanced users I think.

Fingers easier to control than brush

Still a noob here that's why still prefer using fingers
Lol

But must use alot of clay and hair spray to let it set down. I considering though. I all the way cut chicken head, never tried this type of hairstyle before. See mirror liao not used to it.
It all roots down to getting used to it. Its a habit thing. But IMO, u look much better with this new style!

Yeah usually only females will need diffuser. Guys can't really have any grounds of opportunity to use them at all.
