Was talking to Rob during my AU trip and he advised to run warm water over the bottle and shake well before using, as the cold and high pressure of the airplane can cause the oils to settle at the bottom of the bottle.
Anyways, been travelling, with barely any haircuts. Here's today's hair styled with Bb90 to hold down the sides and sea-salt spray on the top. Took inspiration from Dr Strange:
Sup guys, been awhile since I posted here. Anyways, have bought the latest Uevo Grey and Green waxes that bro GX had brought in, and have used the Grey enough to understand its properties in order give it a review! I have broken it down to 5 main attributes with a conclusion to make it easier to follow.
* Hair styled in my usual routine of blow drying with a pre styler (by vilain sidekick) and then applying wax as finishing product.
Soft and pliable on the hands, easy to emulsify. Tugs a little when applying to the hair, but nothing too serious.
Now guys gotta take note here that it offers a different kind of hold that those of us using European/American brands are used to. This is exactly like how GX bro described it, hairspray fixated kind of hold that is extremely firm. The product feels more like a firm coating on the hair strands, rather than it feeling "thick" if you know what I mean.
Weight: Very lightweight
This is where the product really shines. For the amount of hold, the weight here is almost nonexistent. High volume hairstyle? This product does it.
Take note that this is subjective. Because I have very fine hair that is easily weighed down, my hair (about short-medium length) started to droop towards the end of the day thanks to the accumulation of sebum and perspiration etc more than anything else. However, take note that the product didn't fall flat on me, product is still workable and can be adjusted. Also, the product does not melt under heat from the sun. Hair styled at 9am in morning, ended my day at 6ish.
Never a problem, wash off hands easy with hand soap, washes off hair easy with shampoo
This product really reminded me of why sometimes, Asian brand waxes tend to work better for our hair. The unique level of hold combined with its light weight and ability to withstand heat, are the perfect attributes for our Asian hair type and climate. Endurance wise I was kind of expecting as I have very fine hair. Still, I must say that it did considerably well considering that I could still restyle without it falling flat on me. Guys with thicker/ naturally more voluminous hair, I don't see it being a problem at all. Guys with fine-er hair like me, I'd say its more than ok for a casual day out, but definitely a few blasts of hairspray if you're doing anything wilder (clubbing etc), or looking to fix you style in place. All in all definitely a product worth checking out guys!
Will find time to review the Green Uevo wax when I manage to try it out enough. And also, the label men series that GX bro has passed me to review, which he is considering to bring in. Hope this helps guys!
