I first bought this product after seeing a YouTuber use it on his hair, and for only $10 it wasn’t gonna hurt to try it. Previously I’ve tried Gatsby’s “Moving Rubber” line of products (the green, purple, pink, orange, blue, and grey colors) and this by far beats all of those products. It has a slight shine to the finish, so not exactly a true matte. The product makes up for with its ease of application and it’s styling potential. I use a decent amount, about 2-3 scoops, and it goes into damp hair like a breeze. The hold is a bit inconsistent, but it depends on amount used. Somedays i can have perfect hair all day, somedays require a touch up every hour, and some days my hair can droop down every five minutes. All of which I’m sure are because of me and not the product. Overall this product is easily the best hair wax for the money.
I have been using hair wax for quite some time and i like strong hold waxed with matte finish and this is the perfect wax for it. Only down side is that it does not easily come off when you wash it, other than that this product is really good. For first time users it will not give you the perfect hold you want so i suggest using hair spray for finish and you will have hair style that last all day.
First of all, the seller sent me an open and used product. Secondly, I tried it anyway and it is too water based. You can feel how weak it is the moment you rub it in your hands. I have medium length hair with a wavy texture and unless I just want a product that controls frizz, this really does nothing in terms of styling. Very disappointed and the search for a good product goes on....
I heard about this product from Jen on ladylike. She uses it and her hair is very nice, she said it held well and that it wasn't stiff. It allowed her hair to remain soft and manageable. Will our hair cuts are different, I figured it would be worth a shot. I'm seriously a fan. This stuff is awesome. Depending on how I use the product, when wet it gives a firmer hold, when mostly dry it gives a softer more manageable hold. You don't need much to get a good hold. 10 out of 10 would highly recommend
First time buying this type of product and brand. After a lot of research I arrived at Gatsby’s and I’m very satisfied! The scent is fresh and has a good amount of hold for my very, very straight Asian hair. I use it to swoop my hair back and give it lift. My roommates tease me and say I look like I belong in a teenage pop boy band
