Hey bros does anyone know any solution to GD drying out ? Because i threw away my sealant and now my GD is kinda like dried out so when i apply it the product just doesn't really work at all as there is barely any hold now.

Use hair dryer to melt it.
You need to keep the sealant. Your seller never tell you that?
Or is it me? Haha

Okay thanks for the advice i'll try that to see if it works or i might consider changing to another product as my hair just doesn't hold for barely an hour. I got my GD from MensBazaar @ Carousell but he didn't tell me anything abt the sealant so i just threw it out lol

What you meant by don't hold? Lol what style you doing? Haha reason why people don't tell you stuff like this.
Lol. My partner made stickers and paste inside the cab to tell ppl not to remove and throw away the sealant.
I tell verbally if meet up.
Hair dryer works but don't melt it entirely.

I think its because the wax became too dry and it's so difficult to work into my hair so at first when i style it it looks okay but after like an hour it just flops around and eventually falls all over. The style i am doing is just a normal pompadour ah. I wish i would i known that earlier though i thought it was because it doesn't suit my hair type until i saw a earlier post about By Vilain products having the tendency of drying up without the sealant.

Buy from a better seller next time Haha because you never use Pre styling spray for volume of course will flop. No volume how to have pomp. In my opinion, Dynamite Clay will suit better.
Less dry but matte but lighter.
Add with Sidekick. Confirm pomp gao gao
But if you want extreme hold with volume.
Sidekick spray and gold digger.

Ya the hair dryer method works for me too.

Anyway, My gold digger harden due to myself didn't turn tightly of the cap.

Use the hair dry to blow all around the tub. Not just blowing the top. Once you felt it's shiny and soft. It's all good.

Maybe can DIY a seal cover? Cut the size of the Cover, then use cling wrap to wrap around the round shape? Then you can pop it into the cap. Haha .

Have been using the Joico Erratic Clay for quite some time.

Is there any other product that hold better and is as easy to wash?

Wow. Initially I though the 2 brothers were very thoughtful. Now realised it was the seller (also 2 brothers?) Good job gaoxing84

Dynamic clay user here. Awesome stuff.

i dislike answering these kind of posts, but too many people have the belief that the product alone will hold up the hairstyle.

Given how humid our climate is, there is no way you can replicate those youtube hair styles all day unless you use a mixture of cement and hairspray on your hair (which is pretty dumb)

The trick is simple:
1. Learn to blow dry
2. Learn to blow dry with a brush for added volume
3. Use a pre styler / sea salt spray / "boost" or "volume" powder

No way around the dilemma. Relying on the product to provide majority of the hold is a bad thing because the moisture in Singapore will sooner or later weigh the hair down. It's smarter to use high heat to force the hair to go where you want to go, and use product for a bit of extra hold and texture (or shine, whatever floats your boat)

Now someone can volunteer to shoot a hair styling video for me i can show you how to blow dry. It isn't rocket science, just ask your hairstylist how to blow dry next time you get a haircut.

edit: I'm going to take a before / after pic tomorrow morning where i go from bedhead, to damp hair, to blow dried and then to the final hairstyle with just sufficient product and NO hairspray.

TL;DR version: you want awesome volumey hair, learn to use a blowdryer and a pre styler
