My hair goes from being quite short, so a medium/short length during the year. I routinely use the pink and purple Gatsby Moving Rubber. The Moving Tubber has an expectional hold and is easy to work with. I like the fact that it holds my stubborn hair and doesn’t require the use of hairspray. At the end of the day, though, this product is extremely difficult to wash out of my hair. Unlike other products I have used before, I will have to shampoo my hair 2-3 times in order to get the product out. The only reason that I keep coming back to this product is that it has a stronger hold than most other hairstyling products on the market.
I have really long hair for a guy. About 10 inches and I wear my hair in a ponytail but like to textures the hair on the front to give it some volume. This product works really great just be prepared to have it stay in your hair for a while and also expect to shampoo your hair twice to get everything off.
Growing out a pixie is never easy, especially when your fav hair wax is discontinued. After an extensive search, Gatsby fits the bill. I started with green, then pink, now this purple works my longer (yet still short) style how I want it. It's very matte, & unlike the pink, it doesn't get clumpy or heavy by the end of the day. I get great texture & volume, & if I use a curling wand, it holds all day. Green was amazing on a short pixie though, but my hair is just too long now for it to hold.
I love this hair rubber. It smells good and really feels like it's making my hair keep its shape better. I might have to try another color though because my hair is on the longer side (around 5" on top) and on days when I wash my hair this isn't sufficient to keep my hair up. They have some colors for longer hair so I'll probably check those out. If my hair was a little shorter this would be perfect.
Gatsby Wild Shake is great for malleable soft hair, it allows you to style and shape as you wish, simply mix a smidge with water in your palms and work your hair. Because it has a matte finish, its a bit hard to wash off during a shower, may have to shampoo twice to get it all off.
Works great. The scent is like green apple, but it isn't as natural/fresh/clean as the matte formula in the gray container that this company makes. The scent is more chemical, so I have to be careful of how much I use so I don't have a headache. It holds well and it's not shiny or oily and it doesn't take much.
