Carter Supply Products

So guys, Joe the owner of hairppening just contacted me to send me a sample kit of Carter Supply's range of products. He just brought them in, and I believe he is the first retailer to carry the range. He has also mentioned to freely share my opinion as well as inform anyone about this exchange between us - And as usual I will be transparent with you guys and let y'all know about this before I review them.

I will test the products once I have received them, and as usual you guys will know my honest opinion thereafter.

so ive been using mm for almost 2 weeks and its rly a fantastic product, strong hold, nice scent, easy to wash off. only had 2 issues with it.
1) its so pliable when you style with it it doesnt give a fixed structure, but yea its a trade off

2) it sucks as a prestyler dont ever use it as a prestyler, you're wasting the product imo. waaaay more worth to use as a post styler.

thanks to the bros who asked me to try mm again, loving it now :-)
Yes you are right. MM does not work well as a prestyler.
Apologies for the wrong info previously.

Whether I mention its made in China or not is redundant at this point.. You'll understand if you have been following my posts carefully. If its a low quality product that dries my hair out, then yeah maybe its worth me bringing out the MIC info you provided. But if you feel compelled to mention it as I am reviewing the products please don't hesitate! It's a free forum.

And yes of course, I will be transparent with my reviews and relate them according to my own personal experience. I have been doing that since I first started posting here.

Yeap didn't expect them to contact me too. But the jars are actually really tiny, maybe enough for only 5 times use max. But at least I get to to test them, so no complaints there. Will let all know about my experience after I've tried them out thoroughly.

Sea Salt Spray for lightweight hold, big volume and oil absorption properties.

By Vilain Sidekick for a slightly more heavy, high volume structured finish with a stronger hold than SSS.

Its up to personal preference, I love both.

which one gives more volume? ive been using smooth which has been pretty decent as a prestyler but it leaves hair feeling straw-like and its quite sticky while blowdrying. anyone can provide a comparison between the 2 and smooth?

If u want serious poof go for SSS. Original works ok for me as a prestyler for short hair, but once it grows out it isn't as effective.

I so far only tried OS FASHION SEA SPRAY & By Vilain Sidekick. I take turn with them & depending on the mood also. OS tends to be drier.

What he said! OS, or any SSS for that matter. Because of their oil absorbent properties, they tend to dry out the hair alil esp when used a few days consecutively. Be sure to implement a moisturiser or similar hair treatment procedure into your routine to balance it out.
