Right growing my hair, usually have it quite short so I need some wax for the in-between stages. Best stuff I can get that doesn't make my hair sticky and greasy? Theres probably a thread somewhere but I cant find it and 'im a busy man…'

Thanks

Tigi Bed Head Stick

Its about £12 for a stick which is a little excessive, but when i have my hair short it lasts me a year, using it every day. If you use loads your hair will end up being sticky, but you can use sod all and still get really good hold.

I used it when i was growing my hair longer.

one of my mates swears it was down to the amount of gel he used in his younger days that made him lose his hair.

I expect SOS to reply to this with a paper on why that cannot be the case Smiling

I think that's bollocks. My dad always said if you wear a hat you go bald. I think that's also a myth but because he said it I won't wear a hat.

Laughing out loud yeah, same here, it had to be used veeery sparingly.

i'd go for a clay instead of a wax.

nothing makes you lose your hair apart from genes and scissors.

my hair is heavy and I don't like sticky / greasy or hard (no homo) finishes, so I've been searching for the right product for a long time

currently using Moosehead Matt Holding Mud which I would recommend, available from Sainsburys (and eBay for a quid more)

Aussie is really good for a supermarket brand but remember most of those cheap brands contain silicone that give the appearence of nice healthy hair when in reality its not and is damaging the hair.

I used that once, and made me smell like a girl. I heard that stuff like that just coats the hair and doesn't treat it.
