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
i am a 100% behind you!
i can shoot i got equipment but i no skills to edit haha

Ya, blowing can be time consuming, esp if you're gonna be late for work.

So I comb down with pomade and problem solved.

Just got my haircut at HOS for $20bucks.

Use hair dryer to melt it.
You need to keep the sealant. Your seller never tell you that?
Or is it me? Haha
won't the wax dry up more if you use hair dryer on it?

Exact same version, just higher forehead, thinning hairline.

But last time when I met you at tampines to collect GD, my hair was cut n style by Apple from Matsui Studio.

Do you also style your hair like the pic u shared? Would have thought pomade more appropriate product if so? The hair is actually cut pretty 'thin' and 'layered' that's geared towards use of pomade. Would be interesting to see a "GD matt" version of that hair style.

Yes, I styled the same as the pic. cut at Hounds of the Baskervilles, and using pomades to style.

If you're using GD, you can actually do it on damp hair for ease of combing.
