Hey guys I am looking for a hairspray that will hold my hair for the whole day. I am currently using Sebastian Craft clay and Sebastian Reshaper Fierce for my hairspray. However, I feel that the hairspray does not have enough holding power for my hair.. it all crumbles down after a few hours leaving my hair look sort of untouched. Which kinda pisses me off as I had to go to the toilet often to redo my hair and this would keep repeating for the whole day lol. I see some of you guys recommending Osis hairspray..but there are ****loads of Osis hairsprays to choose from lol. May I know which is the best for holding my hair and I wouldn't want my hair to look greasy as i would much prefer a matt-y look to it. Any help would be much appreciated thanks in advance! :D

Grey Uevo is matte. I am buying Uevo Wax tomorrow, will post a review maybe Monday?

Unless anyone recommends Nakano over Uevo?

Waiting for your review before I decided to go for Uevo wax or Hoyu Minitre Ultra Strong wax.

I think that theres only strength 3 in singapore. But 3 is strong enough. It takes you through the day.

You mean Uevo wax is sold in Singapore?

Do you mean the Arimino Peace Freeze Wax?

Oh yeah I'm from Canada ha :). I found this forum a little while ago and unlike other forums (used mainly by Americans) you guys know other waxes besides Gatsby and Nakano.

Anyways my little review on Arimino:

Pros: It spread easily into my hair and I was able to create lots of texture and bundles. The hold was pretty good too (keep in mind I used hairspray though), after riding with a bike helmet my hair was still able to be styled afterwards. It is matte too (which I like). It smells alright I guess but I'm not really picky about smell. The packaging is neat as well and I must admit I found myself opening and closing the cap a couple times (it makes this little 'click':s13:).

Cons: I found the wax difficult to wash off, especially since I like to wash my hair at most twice a week. I will probably have to wash it everyday now since water alone doesn't seem to get it off. The wax is pretty expensive too, $38 (CAD) for 80g :s31:.

Oh, you mean you buy it in Canada?

Currently I am using Arimino Peace Freeze Wax but do not really like it, that why I am sourcing for other wax.

i asked my fren to get it in Japan. Cost about 1,400 yen, i think $25 is a reasonable price if available in Singapore. I am also looking for it as my current one is finishing soon, if not i will have to wait for my fren to go on business trip again to get it for me lol. :o
