My reviews previously but people may think otherwise for Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm.

Indians Extra Strong Hold Molding Clay
- Clay texture and creamy in colour
- Lightweight and able to create slight volume
- Easy to apply but sticky on hair after apply
- Holding strength: very strong for short hair length and strong for medium hair length
- Not easy to wash off (based on Ryo Shampoo)

Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm
- Smell: Pleasant fruity smell
- Texture: Creamy wax
- Easy to apply and does not feel sticky on the hair after apply
- Able to create very minimal volume for short hair
- Holding Strength: slightly above average for short hair and weak for medium long hair
- Easy to wash off

Indians clay is a dry textured clay. You have to use the back of your fingernails to dig it out, unlike soft wax. You don’t have to throw it away because its dry and “hard”. Its exactly how clay works to give you the lift and holds the hair together.

ya, i have 2 versions, 1 is the glass jar, the other is a plastic jar. The older one, glass jar damn hard, cant scoop out, have to use hair dryer to warm it dig out then apply. But put on hand harden again..

the newer ones plastic jar was better, hard too but still can dig out and easier to wash off from palm.

Hi
Looking for clay/wax/pomade suggestion that has a good hold like gold digger (or better)
Matte finish
Good for fine hair / volume / texture (if possible).
Or If I can rephrase my question : Any suggestion better than Gold Digger that have the same hold approx ?
My MM cant handle my hair, I need something stronger. I'm using GD, it is good, but if there is something better, why not

Thanks you

GD’s hold is good but you may have realized that it’s heavy too. Every product will have some tradeoffs in a way or another.

Based on your requirements, it seems that you have fine hair (small diameter of hair strand) and from the fact that GD works well for you, its likely that you have thick hair (high proximity of hair) so as to support GD’s weight. Also, all main styling products (ie wax/clay) creates body and texture for the hair, but they do not volumize the hair. Pre-stylers such as hair mousse or seasalt spray helps to volumize the hair.

You may consider ebl clay (semi creamy texture, high hold, provides good lift to the hair, slightly lower washability) or indians clay (dry textured - so you have to dig it out, very high hold, average washability). Since both are clay, you have to rub onto palms till a slight burning sensation prior to application.

Yup, the new version of indians clay comes with improved formula and easier to use. On a side note, for those who’re interested, new stocks are arriving next month.

What properties are you looking out for? Matte/slight shine, strong/medium hold and any concerns for washability? After knowing these, i can help to provide some options for you to consider

Anyone tried parting perm in Singapore? Can recommend place? Can't seem to find a salon that does it. Most only cold perm.
