Currently using this meme, but need something with a better hold. It's windy as fuck outside and my hair goes all over the place. What is a good alternative that has a better hold and leaves a matte finish?
Schwarzkopf Taft Carbon Force. No shine and holds well. 4 euros for this one, meme free.
Hanz de Fuko Quicksand is like Claymation but a stronger hold and even more matte. Might be worth trying that and cocktailing it with a fiber or wax to get a more even application and a slight, healthy looking shine. I use Quicksand and American Crew Fiber in a 1:1 mixture and even if it gets fucked up it's easy to restyle.
Murray is terrible standalone. You need a bottle of shampoo to get it out of your hair. It might be okay if you cocktail it and only use a little. The hold is okay and it's dirt cheap
My hair is a little thin up top/in front. Will this stuff help it look more voluminous? Without anything in it it either lays down flat or turns into some weird frizzy afro.
Pic is my hair on a good day, which are very rare.
I use argan oil. It gives hair a more healthy look and makes your hair easier to work with. Just use 3-4 drops in damp hair. It acts as a heat protectant too.
To give more volume also blow dry against the direction.
Nah it doesn't damage hair at all.
When you guys apply product how do you get past the feeling like your sticky hands are literally tearing your hairs out? I fucking hate that feeling and I don't want to drop $20 on HdF shit if it's super sticky.
Yes, my forehead is massive. Probability of me balding in my late 20s is high. I baby my hair.
>do you get past the feeling like your sticky hands are literally tearing your hairs out?
no because i don't have thin hair
people with thin hair should never use products with high hold written on them.
This holds my coarse hair in place for around 2-4 hours depending on the weather conditions.
