Any recommendations for new wax?

Past products which I used is Sebastian X'clay and Renati soft paste. Both work great for me, but are going out of production.

Need a new wax!

rakuten selling them at:

30g - ~1000yen (~$15) (incld domestic shipping)
80g - ~1500yen (~$23) (incld domestic shipping)

for me its either during my tokyo trips or through Proxy/EMS shipping frm there. i think i remember seeing some forumers selling them at marketplace..

chemically treated hair like perm or color will of cos make it dryer. Nothing to do with the styling products. A matte look will look dry and matte becos 'matte-look', until you wash off.

To be fair, I've personally gone to la coco over 5 times and Rina has always attended to me because I made an appointment in advance.

She's nice and has superb skills that make you sit up when she cuts, trims and blows your hair.

And the shampoo gals might be new, don't let it spoil your views about the salon.

I swear by Rina and her hairstyling skills, so make an appointment and not be disappointed call 3 days in advance.
(Note : She's not free on sundays)

Hi do you have their phone number? I would like to try my luck and book rina today since its a weekday, their website is down cant get the number. There is only 1 la coco in sg right?

nice hopfully sg can get distribution right and sell cheap.

yup. but most probably won't be appearing in the shelves of watsons/supermarkets. :(

heres a little round-up from what i notice right now in tokyo recently,

*all prices are subjected to 5% tax.


demi uevo, starting to get really popular.. (just had its own marketing shelf at tokyu hands beside the rest of the hair wax.)

30g / ¥1,000 (~S$15) (excld tax)
80g / ¥1,400 (~S$21) (excld tax)

uevo740.jpg




arimino peace, greatly supported by the users of past arimino products. (i didn't really like it a lot due to the strong smell of rubber? :s22: but nevertheless, its still one of the better ones :) )

40g / ¥1,500 (~S$23) (excld tax)
80g / ¥2,000 (~S$31) (excld tax)

NUMBER THREE deuxer. i still have these, find it a little hard to wash off esp the purple cube.

"All DEUXER styling products contain either Macadamia nuts oil or Macadamia nuts butter with treatment effects to the hair. It can create various hair styles without making the hair heavy even though it gives mild moisture rich feeling to the hair. Enjoy subtle smell of sweet fresh floral berry."

80g / ¥1,400 (~S$21) (excld tax) [ONE SIZE]

deuxer_wax_01.jpg




lebel TRIE homme free move. never used them before, but then again, you could see them at any stores selling hair wax. will pick them up soon.

55g / ¥1,000 (~S$15) (excld tax)
100g / ¥1,600 (~S$25) (excld tax)

free_move_homme_01.jpg




last but not least.. nakano TANTO.

90g / ¥1,300 (~S$20) (excld tax)

preferred

1. uevo
2. arimino
3. samourai
4. tanto(by nakano)
5. DHC


deuxer <- would take this out till i try their green(4)

personally im very sensitive to the smell of wax, would prefer a light,mild scent then those heavy citrus smell. cause i will be smelling it for the whole day.. sometimes i would get headache because of it. :(

oh yes.

forgotten to add DHC to the list, one of the under-rated wax.

50g / ¥525 (~S$8) (excld tax) [ONE SIZE]
