Hi fellow forumers!

I'm not the kind of guy who is into styling my hair but I'm definitely a HUGE sucker for fragrance haha!

As such, I'm wondering whether the experts here can recommend an awesome shampoo and/or conditioner (either wash or leave-in) that has:
(1) an out-of-the-world smell; and
(2) lasts for a long time!

Both factors are equally important (because what's the point of smelling awersome for only 10minutes after you step out of the shower right?). I know that there have been rave reviews about the kanebo shampoo but there are no indications as to whether it fits the bill lol.

Please offer suggestions, thanks!!!
Personally I think asience pink will fit that bill. The scent can tahan from night to night. Everytime wind blow can smell again lol

Kanebo shampoo not only helps to effectively remove impurities and oils from the hair, but also helps to control the excess oils in one's hair. On top of these cleansing properties that it has, it also adequately moisturizes your hair such that you will feel your hair being silky smooth after shower. I must say that it will definitely allows you to be relaxed after usage. :)

And now to your main concern, fragrance. Kanebo is capable of staying on your hair for a considerable period of time. Rest assured that it wont be just 10mins but definitely longer than that. I don't dare to say that its out of the world smell but definitely pleasant enough to please most of the noses around here. You can check this page out for the collective reviews on the shampoo:
KANEBO LISSAGE VOGNE ACIDIC SHAMPOO 800ML (pH 5.5) - ThePrettyJerk

On a side note, Kanebo conditioner will be here soon too. Do stay tuned to it! :)

Next month bro! It should be arriving earlier than the kanebo shipment though. Received a few positive feedback from some of the bros on EBL head colour forced finalizing hair clay!

Will text you when its here, zonglin bro! :)

have u tried wetting the golddigger or ur hair?

2 or 3 sprays of SSS onto clay thats already on ur hands has worked for me.

actually prestyling with quicksand works well too

Try these.

1. Make sure your hair is dry (damp is also can but use on dry hair for a start)
2. Dig an appropriate amount onto your palms.
2. Rub to heat it up with your palms in a front-and-back manner before application
3. Dont use your fingers to pick at it when styling; Spread it evenly across your hair as if you are towel-drying it. Let the palms do the job as its spread evenly and distributed across your palms now

Like what death bro mentioned, you can consider using seasalt spray but however, his method of spraying SSS onto the clay on the palms is slightly too high level. Try spraying a few times on damp hair --> blow-dry --> Gold Digger --> hair spray if need to. This should work out good for you. :)

Yes this circular movement is also possible and allows a fair and even distribution. The thing about styling is that you first try to get the styling product evenly across the different areas of your hair then u crunch and shape till it becomes the hair shape that you want. Many people commit the mistake of worrying that it will be too messy or tousled and will be hard to style and hence, they are very gentle when styling or even use two fingers to style. This is wrong as the product cant get evenly across the hair and there will be no creation of any hair texture at all. Just press on and i am sure you will be getting better and better at it. :)

This is because Gold Digger is heavy and if your hair texture is of the thick type, it will be even heavier. Of course there will be pros for thick hair texture as due to the weight of the hair, its easier to tame them too. I believe seasalt spray should serve your needs well and further complement the use of your GD in the styling process.

With no SSS, when you are tousling your hair, you can try to create additional volume by styling in the reverse manner. If your hair parting is always to the right then style it to the left this time. It will create volume for you and your hair wont look flat. Crunch your hair as if you are crunching your fist to make it look more voluminous. Twist and punch the ends so that it wont fall flat that easily. Hope it helps. :)
