I have been using Morris Motley Chrome and personally feel holding power isn't great.. plus point is washes off easily. Easy to create style but after few hours flops down already...

I personally prefer the balm as well, I find Chrome too heavy for me. Balm's strength to weight ratio is just nice haha

Any good hair spray to recommend? The one I'm using the smell quite strong. Preferably milder smell with good holding power and doesn't make hair looks hard

Personally using 8+ Firm Hold hairspray, bought from leejhong bro. Matte finish with a decent hold.. smell wise is pretty mild, goes away after awhile.

Thanks for intro bro. Sounds good. How long can the hold last whole day?

I would say yes, its a pretty safe choice for a casual day out as long as you aren't doing any activities like clubbing etc. You can experiment with using more or less to suit your needs. If you really want your hair to be cemented in place you can take a look at freeze hold hairsprays. I have a can of Tresemm's Freeze hold which works damn well.. Only downside is that I find it tends to dry out the hair when used in large amounts. Other than that there is got2b Glued which is available in some Guardian stores (ION basement has stock), and Korial and EBL Taste sprays recommended by leejhong bro. I haven't tried them yet, but might get round to it in the near future

Think I'll try the 8+. Freeze holds pray will make the hair looks hard or not? I prefer natural look like those korean one hahaha

Most freeze hold hairsprays tend to give off a bit of a shine, but Tresemme Freeze hold is one of those that I know (and tried) that gives a cleaner, more natural finish. But with what you mentioned, I think 8+ would be good for you! It's a nice, matte finish Looks like you don't even have hairspray on.

Yes, 8+ hairspray is one that comes across as a lightweight hairspray. Very natural look and feel due to the matte finish.

But do note that the shine from hairsprays might not necessarily be bad, especially so if we have coloured hair. The shine helps to bring out the texture of the hair.

Currently trying out the new variant for Indians Clay which is called as Indians Dry Shaper Styling Mud. From the way that you guys described MM Balm and Chrome to be, it seems to assimilate the two variants of Indians products too - Extra Hold Molding Clay and Dry Shaper Styling Mud.

One comes with higher hold but more rigid. The other comes across lower on rigidity, natural (soft) hold and higher shine. Will be bringing in the Dry Shaper soon too!

gatsby just released 2 versions of their pomades

one is for volume less shine greater hold
one is for sleek side style, greater shine less hold

i bought both and so far i'm leaning towards the volume one
