Consistency wise, nothing like the other two. If anything, I'd compare the consistency to MP's Natural Beeswax Paste. Kinda spongey and scoops out as a chunk. Haha but honestly.. I would't know if I'd recommend it to those wanting their hair to stay in place like how they styled it. Cos for angmoh hair it's ok if their hair fell apart naturally cos they naturally already have movement and volume in their hair. For us, fall apart means... I don't think I have to elaborate haha.
Sounds suspiciously like HDF Sponge Wax

I'd say the performance wise for ADH dry is similar in the sense that it only holds volume for a very short period of time. Anws update, at the end of the day now.. hair has become an almost completely flat side parting. Volume is almost non existent. Hair still pliable and adjustable, but goes back down into that "flat" shape soon after.

Haha I think you guys can roughly gauge liao.

Verdict: Not suitable for our hair type (imo) - unless you strictly want hairstyles with little to no volume

Thought I would try it out.. Cost me 33 bucks ahaha. But you never try, you never know.

I have, just bought it and tried out for the first time. It's a very lightweight product with light hold. It's a must to pre-style when using this product. What it does is just coat your hair with grit, tackiness and texture. You need to have a good foundation prior to applying, or hair will mostly likely fall down during the day. Good for casual hairstyles! If I had to put it in the same class as other products, I would compare them to Morris Motley TSB and Carter Supply's Flux. Matte and lightweight. Although this is a much lighter product than both.. Lighter hold as well too. Take note on what I said about pre-styling first.
Wow wow wow awesome! Where'd you get it from?

Duplicate ones also have!

Craft clay was featured in one of blumaan's videos although he didn't explicitly mention it. The scent is lemon like, quite tempted to try actually

All who hasn't tried Layrite Cement yet. Please go try. Been using it for awhile already and I think it's up there in terms of suitability for our hair type and weather. Hold and endurance is pretty wah. Adh founder Andrew mentioned that products that help hairstyles retain volume usually coat individual strands and make them sticky in order to allow them to lay on top of each other without weighing each other down. Layrite cement does this much, much better than ADH dry imo. It has much better grip and hold.

Although it's not publicised much.. But seriously, it's pretty good stuff guys. 4oz jar at that too. If I didn't think it's good I wouldn't say so!

*pls take note that I did my usual routine of blow drying with SSS, then followed up with layrite cement as finishing product.

^Is Cement similar to Gold Digger - sticky, thick and amazing hold but also heavy and makes it hard to run your fingers through?

Got my hair cut by John of Hair Factor's recently. He seems to be pretty knowledgeable but I'm not sure if I want to pay $45 a mth for haircuts

More importantly how did the hair cut turn out? Any distinctive positive difference in your hair cut from your usual (presumably cheaper) hairstylist?

Styling with Scheme Cream today, end result shown below.

I really like the product, it's very easy to scoop and apply, and it glides through my hair easily. Best of all it gives a very nourishing feel that is the opposite of my usual EBL Clay which was dry af and tugged at my roots.

Btw my hair is pretty long and thick now - I need something to slick the sides down, so how I used Scheme Cream is very different from using the same product for a quiff or pompadour.
