Agree with you on the Nigelle Clay being "complicated", it does take a bit of trial and error to get the right amount moulded into the hair. But I have to say, in this heat we've been having, it is superb for not weighing down your hair, not irritating your scalp, and also not leaving an "oily" feeling on your scalp.

I think the Nigelle clay genuinely excels at retaining that natural hair look/texture with really respectable hold (sorry to use this term again), even when the sun/wind is bearing down on your head. Really have to emphasize NATURAL! =)

the OS salt spray + nigelle clay is superb when used in the correct combination.....sometimes even Im amazed by how it works out even after the entire day at work is over and im off to after-work events :s13:

gotta try and experiment to figure out if u like it. To be honest, i didn't really like it much until i figured how to make it work for me. its not straight forward like a simple clay or paste or even wax cos its neither really a clay or a paste but somewhere in between.

Hey guys,

Would like some input from some hair experts here.I'm currently using GD.However I find that if I use:

GD + Hairspray = Oily look on hair very unappealing and almost very little hold.

Gatsby + Hairspray = Expected matte look and considerable hold.


Is there anything I'm doing wrong? FYI, I have very soft fine hair, difficult to hold unless using hairspray.

Thanks!

how much gd you use? dry or wet hair? gd only got hold when its dry.

very soft hair shouldnt be a problem. my hair cant even be held by most hairsprays, but gd is a monster.

good on you bro! hahaha!
since i used quicksand, nothing else can be considered matte anymore :/ but gd is definitely not a glossy finish, that would be the upcoming silverfox. WHAT DID THE FOX SAY?

i would assume that thicker hair is harder to style since it resists change more. why would you both say that fine hair is harder to keep in place?

Gatsby is dry as hell. and the hairspray by them is LOL.

soft hair is the easiest to style.

Seems like most of the community here goes for natural look. I would like to say none of the community here styles their hair like mine because all have been complimenting the holding strength.

Without Osis+ for me, my antenna is confirm gonna sway left and right. :s13:

hey guy. I'm using gatsby pink and its hard to wash off, i'm using wax more often now so i'm afraid for my hair too.

I'm thinking of changing product for style and holding power.
I prefer wax with matt finish or slight gloss
my hair have some volume and fringe length is touching my mouth. looking to trim it soon ( just need a new hairdresser)
I usually just style everything to the back or side. so i need holding power that will last.

any input is appreciated.
thanks in advance

Hi yurec,

If you want to style your hair to the back or side. Backcomb or Side Pompadour. You can try the Imperial Barber Classic Pomade. Slight gloss. Or the Imperial Barber Matt Pomade Paste for a more matte look.

Available at HairyPortal

Just did sss on semi dry hair and I have to say it's very good at making my hair flat. I tried to give it volume and it just didn't do it. Blow dried of course, but nope, doesn't go up. I'll stick to my powder for that. However, sss on wet hair was fantastic at keeping my hair down and flat, very useful for my undercut back and sides.

Not sure did I bought the wrong product but I just got myself a L'Oréal deep repairing hair mask.

Yesterday bro JH recommend using hair mask could help my hair preventing from dryness. So I quickly hoot one to try lol.

I tried curling my hair before I attempt a quiff. Not too bad and it can be achieved once again with the SSS, blow dry, curl, quicksand, gold digger!

These product are seriously blow my mind off again :s22:

Hair masks usually need washing off after application. Use the loreal hair mask after shampooing and leave it on for around 5mins or so. It can be lesser than that as you deem fit too. However, don't use it more than 2-3times per week as it will be excessively greasy. So with the hair mask, i believe the problem of dryness in the hair will be improved significantly as it helps to nourish and condition your hair greatly. But bro, did you buy the hair mask for coloured hair? :)

Like what death bro mentioned, its always best to curl before applying SSS. Do it on "clean" hair. When your hair is free of these styling products, curling and/or straightening will work best and this should be when you used it too. After curling then you apply the products to complement and bring out the contrast of the curls. But you already going for perming right? No more hassle of curling anymore then. :D

Since you're using gatsby pink, i believe you are definitely one who needs very strong holding strength. Gatsby pink is also not matte as well so i am guessing you need find yourself tilting towards slight shine too and this is especially so when you always style everything to the back or side as well.

Like what a lot of the bros mentioned here, you can probably try out Gold Digger. First thing first, it can be washed off easily. Only gatsby can't be washed off easily and when your hair is not cleansed properly, hair can be yanked out SUPER easily. GD doesn't give you a total matte texture finish but at the same time, definitely not glossy touch too. Slight shine, just right at the dot, makes me fall in love with it. Its just nice to go so well with side pomp or slickback. Apply it on dry hair will give you best results, at least for me. If you want a bit more shine, just put a few drops of water and spread the GD evenly and well across your palms. GD isn't dry to start off well so you can try to experiment it to get the best look and feel for yourself. Alternatively, you can also consider syoss ture wax as well. Gives you a slight shine finish as well. :)

Another recommendation that you can most probably consider will be SSS. The volume that it gives you will go well with almost any form of styling product out there. Try it, bro! :D
