So I am trying a few new things this year with regards to blogging, and Vlogging, and this is one of the many new things.
I use products and on a regular basis, one that I use daily is hair wax so I thought why not blog about it and share my experience.
I am not Mr Knowledgeable when it comes to things like this, so for me its trail and error. I would like to try more products and see what they are like, but right now it cost and playing safe till I have some money to play with.
So this review will be for two products, one that I have used for a while and one that I recently tried and the reason why I decided to try it.
Urban Fudge (Strength 8) :
As you have possibly seen from my many Instagram pictures, I like my hair short and spiked up.
I first tried the number 5 strength and thought nah this isn’t for me, but I decided to see if 8 was any better and it was MUCH!!! better for me.
This is really good! if your after a strong hold, one that could even last through the night and next day (if you don’t wash it out at night) then this is for you)
My only problem is the cost of this, this roughly lasts one month for me and its around £7. Yeah thats not much but £7 every month…..
You can get this on offer at SuperDrug which is good as its basically buy one get one free, but its difficult to know when they have it without stopping in store loads.
L’Oreal Studio Line 6
So I mentioned cost was a thing for me, so I decided to try this as it said it was a strong hold and L’Oreal get a good name.
On opening its a very different style of wax to Urban, its more smooth and closer to a gel but not a gel.
I put a little on and put it through my hair, it felt slightly wet the texture but I thought this might start to harden in a few minutes so I left it.
After an hour it still had the same look and feel, it didn’t get any harder so I thought ok lets see how this is over the course of a day.
For me this was just ok, it didn’t have the hold I wanted and over the course of the day. What I did notice is that after washing my hair in the morning, and drying it…it still felt like some wax was in my hair and I use a good shampoo and very warm water.
Overall I think I will stick with Urban Fudge, as it seems to have the hold I want.
If your looking for a strong hard hold/texture for your hair go with Fudge, but if you want a soft hold use the L’Oreal.
If you know of any that is similar, and has similar hold and maybe cheaper please do let me know I am always wanting to try new things.
