Just rub on your palms till it feels semi dry.
You don't need a video for that.

for those korean 2-block haircut, do local hairstylists usually refer to it as the "overlap" haircut?

i show a reference pic to my hairstylist today to check and she said it's "overlap".

Isn't the 2 block quite similar to undercut?

What you need is a strong hold AND lightweight product, because fine hair will be weighed down by something heavy e.g Gold Digger.

I also see you're thinking of using sea salt spray, good choice.


Sea salt sprays and prestyling products (can be a lotion, mousse, gel, powder) etc are generally applied to damp hair before blow-drying.

When combined with the heat and air pressure of blow-drying what prestylers do is to create texture and an initial foundation, and the hot air helps push the roots in the direction you want the hair to go. Also prestylers are very usually lightweight so hair is not weighed down.

If you're doing this correctly your hair will become huge & puffy. Finish off by using the wax/clay/pomade/whatever of your choice to sculpt and control the huge mess on your hair into whatever you like, then add more hold with hairspray if you like.

Vid on how to blowdry -


Caveat: hairspray locks and hardens hair, so it's NOT recommended for more flexible casual hairstyles.

In the end you get the best of both worlds - huge weightless volume that is reinforced with strong hold wax and hairspray. Don't forget tt's always better to blowdry hair to a huge puffy shape and then tame down the volume with a wax/clay, THAN to use wax/clay to boost volume.


There's KMS spray, OS spray, REF 323 spray, Sidekick by Vilian, and tons of others sold online.

Google "buy sea salt spray singapore" and you'll be given a plethora of products.


Good stuff, you're doing what is commonly called cocktailing and it will work especially for looks with a shine finish.
thanks for the detailed advice bro!

i followed ur steps of using SSS + wax (gold digger) and my hairstyle is finally able to stay in place. previous with wax or clay alone (without using SSS as a pre-styler), my hairstyle will fall limp and flat within 15~20mins after i styled them. my hair by default is those limp and flat kind

i am now using SSS + gold digger wax for my daily routine. it gives me a strong hold and matt finish.
next for certain events, i wish to have a strong hold with some shiny finish. what is the recommendation?
i tried using pomenade alone previously, it was shiny but weak hold, my hair fall flat and soft and end up looking oily and messy

what shld i should if i wan a strong hold (like my current routine) but with a shiny finish?

sss = sea salt spray, pre styling product means you spray on your hair then blow dry to create volume

wax is after you're done with blow dry, you finish off your styling with this

You mean this video?
yes sir
