First time use uevo, smell like gatsby moving rubber sia. Initial hold is super pliable, after an hour or so hold turns into pp hair spray kind, firm but still movaeble. Just don't use water when restyling.

lol to all the other so called retailers in the hair wax business now.
cannot compete professionally and all they do is send baseless complaints and accusation about others.
find other ways to compete, being a whistleblower just shows how much of a loser your business and yourself is.

dumb kids.

tsk tsk.

Like to share some info for those with hair loss issues. I am 50 yr old, facing hair loss issue. Using some organic shampoo, didn't stop hair loss, only slow it down. But recently, hair loss reversed. Actually gained more hair, but not to the same condition as when i was in my twenties.

The secret ingredient was nothing more than brown rice - the deep reddish type. 6 months ago, ate 1 meal a day with brown reddish rice. The hair loss reversed until my fren took notice.

You may wiah to try and see if it works.

Hey all,

I've tried using wax when i was in secondary school, didn't like it as it made my face SUPER oily, like super super oily. Thus i didn't continue using hair styling product as i had a bad experience. However as of now, with more research, I've came to found out that there are other products that are not wax, such a clay or pomades.

Would like to get some opinion about hair clay as I think hair clay is something that i would want; easy to wash off. As for the types of hold and shine it gives, i know that it differs from product to product.

Have been wanting to get pre-styler and hair clay, was looking at giovanni frizz be gone pre-styler as it has heat protection and hopefully anti-frizz property just as it's name suggest? However I've read in this thread that the sea salt spray works wonder too, may i know what are the differences between this two?

I've also decided on getting the By vilian dynamite clay as it seems that it has the properties that i want; medium hold and matte finish if i remember correctly. However on hairbroduct website there is a product which interest me which is the morris motley treatment styling balm. Will i be better off by just getting the dynamite clay from by vilian? Or will the morris motley product have something to offer like it's treatment property and works the same as the dynamite clay?

Much thanks!

like you said oily, i suggest you get something that will dry up your hair, like sea salt spray does.
It gives your hair that beachy ruffle look after blow drying.
can try the ref 323 sea salt spray
then finish off with Morris Motley Treatment styling balm.
the balm has a good all day hold, natural matte finish and it has ingredients in it to protect and treat your hair throught out the day.

dynamite clay as it suggest is medium - strong hold but it definitely more oily compared to morris motley because of a small amount of petroleum ingredients.

i would recommend morris motley balm over the dynamite clay unless you know what you're doing.

lastly, you will need a good shampoo to use daily to remove any impurities in your hair after a long day out, to keep your hair and scalp healthy

Hey thanks bro for the quick and in-depth reply! I do understand hairbroduct is the website you are running and i would definitely get those products from there :D . Morris motley balm was said to have a lightweight feel, so that it won't weigh down the hairstyle you have done after awhile, this seems like a plus point to me too.

May i know what is a good shampoo you will recommend? Speaking about shampoo, I've been watching videos about what kind of shampoo we should use and how frequent we should shampoo our hair. Any shampoo that contains sulfate is harmful for your hair. And shampooing your hair daily will take away the natural oil from your hair (but definitely to shampoo after using hair products). Since then I've tried to shampoo my hair every other day, only consistently using conditioner everyday. Hope i am doing this right

Hi Mr -Decade-,

You can go for Blindbarber 90proof pomade or Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm. Both are good for oily hair.

Blind Barber 90 Proof Pomade: Infused with hops, this protein-rich styling aid will leave hair with a strong, yet workable, matte finish. As it turns out, hops aren't just for beer. They happen to be an effective conditioning and thickening agent, perfect for regulating greasy hair. They are antiseptic and a great dandruff fighter.

Morris Motley Treatment Styling Balm: Formulated in house by Rob Mason, this product consists of radical blend of premium ingredients absorbs moisture and swells into the hair on impact. Creates weightless matte texture, fights off grease, pliable strong hold and thickens fine hair.

For more details on both products, do drop by our website products details page. We are the authorized retailer for both Blind Barber and Morris Motley. All products are straight from the brands with 100% authencity verification. I hope you can finally find your indespensable hair styling product.

Warm Regards,
Dave Lim

daily shampoo can try vogne shampoo. if not can try giovanni shampoo.

i have been using vogne shampoo since 2013 and i swear by it. (as much as i retail the product, i was a consumer before.)

its best to shampoo daily, at least once a day. for me, i do it in the morning and when my day ends. morning cause during the night, we guys tend to perspire more and oil is generated overnight. to look fresh and ready to conquer the day, wash your hair, smell good, look good and you will be confident. you dont want ppl to smell the overnight smelly hair of yours.

at night after the day ends because grime, dirt and oil is being collected throughout the day, especially our hot and humid climate on top of city life. the worse thing you can do is not wash your hair plus if you have hair products in your hair.
wash and keep your hair and scalp clean and i ensure you will have no problems.

those fortnightly washes only works for cooler and dry climates in overseas, that theory or rather crap dont work for us here in Singapore.
