In the use, the black container with all green is called "axe natural look understated cream". Is this the same product? I haven't bought it to test it out, but everytime I open it the product looks very watery and shiny, almost melting? Very different from what your video shows
There is no axe clay, only lynx clay. They are branded differently as different products, which does not help me at all. For all I know the lynx clay could be called axe cream or paste in the Canadian market. :(
I have always used either got2b beach matte or texture clay. In the last fee months I have tried hdf claymation, reuzel matte clay and many more top tier products. Because they all looked and felt greasy in my blonde hair, I have always come back to got2b. What I have been doing lately is mixing a full pot of texture clay with a full pot of beach matte and putting it back in the packaging. I feel like this is the perfect hair product for my head
I occasionally use the got2b product but generally stick to original by blumaan. The got2b is a great product. You just need to do a nice volumized pre style and add a tiny amount of got2b at the time.
Cheers for the video Robin! I would like to ask you if you ever came across the Trevor & Sorbie Clay and your thoughts. I've been using it for years and it's the only hair product that really works for me. The problem is that I live in Italy and it's impossible to get it even through online shopping without spending like €100... so I'm looking for an alternative. Any your suggestion will be greatly appreciated! Cheers!
When you mean oil based - does it mean "plant based" oil or "petroleum derived" oil? Also, it'd be good to have a Wirecutter style article to integrate your videos as well as a comparison chart/ matrix with pros, cons, ingredients and "chemicals vs natural/ organic" components. I'd prefer less chemicals etc.
If you ever stumble on L'Oreal Studio brand, it's about $10 USD and it's been my go-to over the more expensive stylers I've tried. I haven't tried any of these. Garnier also has a decent one but it's very very low hold, I use it because it comes in a huge container and if you already have a pre-styler it's enough ( I used a heat protectant mousse and powder play with it so it gets the job done)
I went even cheaper than these and bought 2 different Gatsby hair waxes.. Mat & Hard for the matte finish and Tough & Shine for shiny look but not overly so. Great value for money and works with my straight short hair. Both of those have good hold and a re-mouldable in hair. One is creamier than the other. Thanks for your review... if i find these products here, will give them a try. Ps. is my phone or are your ears really that red? Cheers!
I use matt Clay from VO5 everyday and I have to use a dot otherwise it makes my hair greasy and heavy, also the more you use to product it melts and is crap, Use SuperDrug on brand Clay, its unreal and is £3
Which type of clay is good for thin hair? Whenever I use regular gel my hair gets wet and just stays flat on my head. I need something that will add volume and will make my hair stay firm. Also, whats the best shampoo for my hair type? Thanks a lot
Im using got2b for 2 months now and its not that bad. But a quick tip: dont put a lot (start with rly small amount and add more if you think you need), use it when your hair is like 10% wet, spread it with your fingers an not the whole hands, then spread it in your hair. Btw it would be great if you also use prestyler (i use silicon) cause your hair will feel really dry with only this clay. (But yeah, im not buying same one anymore either)
