Hmm but saw some reviews that EBL Clay is a little difficult to wash off? Ever tried a sample before but I forgot what the experience was like. If really not bad might consider hooting one.

EBL is more dry compare to DC.
Which is perfect for me. I like that sandy dry look.

if you sweat alot, stay away from water based stuff such as pomade.
use clay or anything that is dry.

Try out By Vilain's Dynamite Clay. Me and some of the others here swear by it to hold up in our hot + humid weather haha. One of my fave products. The By Vilain products in general are quite suitable for our weather.

There was once I played soccer, whole head wet but I could feel the product still holding my hair. Just had to rake it up and neaten abit, and it still held decently. Usually most products would just flop completely. It's mainly cause the products are very concentrated ah haha, that's why you don't need to apply that much.

I usually get my By Vilain Products from hairbroducts.sg

I am using clay now but no matter how much I use, my hair always fall down 3 hours after styling. Even with hair spray

Don't even consider pomade when you sweat alot.. Who knows it clogs your hair pores then u get pimples.

Alot of people get Pomade because of trend. It's wrong. Choose something suits you.

Either dynamite clay or mmb. Or nothing at all. Hahaha

Which brand of clay are you using? Try out Dynamite Clay It's on a different level.

This will be a controversial choice but consider Quicksand.

It's super dry and has better hold than most products mentioned here despite smelling a back off putting. I personally find it quite enjoyable to use.

Tbh product is not the answer - it's more likely to knowing how to blowdry and use styling tools.

You should ask the professional who cuts your hair also. I've actually learnt a ton about styling hair and letting it stay in place, just by talking to my hair stylist whenever I visit..

Agreed, Quicksand provides good hold and volume for fine hair, but at the expense of really drying out the hair - at least in my experience. I've noticed that products such as Quicksand and SSS - which tend to remove excess oil tend to work better in our climate for a couple of main reasons -

#1: Our hair type - Most of us have the "asian" hair type, which is mostly quite limp and flat. So it can't take much weight, hence voluminous (poofy) hairstyles tend to be abit more difficult to hold up.
#1: Our SG climate - Humidity - Moisture settles on our hair, adding extra weight which in turn weighs the hairstyle down.

These two added together contributes to many of the issues we have with our hairstyles not holding well. Can say that we're rather suay la.

Which is why I say products like Quicksand and SSS make our hairstyles much more durable. This is because they absorb all that moisture and oils etc that would otherwise weigh the hair down.
