How does the stuff compare with American Crew Fiber Wax/d'ya think it'd be any good on Asian hair?

This fit seems to illustrate a reoccurring problem with cdhagg's fits in that he doesn't really commit fully to one look or another. FWIW, I think his slimmer, black fits looked better on him, but if he would rather do the americana/preppy vibe (which won't get much love here, but if he likes it I think he could pull it off well), then he needs to do it right instead of continuing the straddle the fence. either way, the hair needs fixing (and this is coming from me, lol).
I think I get what you're saying about "straddling the fence." Any "straddling" isn't intentional, but probably the result of a not-sufficiently-formed sense of style.Quote:

I used to work at a hair salon, so I'll chime in my 2cents.
CDHagg, you seem to have thick, frizzy hair which is rare, but still found, in Caucasians.
Pomades won't be of much help to you because they are petroleum- or lanolin-based, and only help to seal in moisture found naturally in hair. Moisture is normally absent in frizzy hair. In other words, it won't keep in what ain't there to start with.
What I'd recommend is that you consider a chemical relaxant. I won't endorse a single brand, but make sure it is a beta-mercapto-ethanol (BME) based product. BME will remove the frizziness and help your hair strands to absorb moisture, which you can then seal in with your pomade or gel of choice. Do not use a BME-based product more than once a week. Also, before you begin any regimen, test a small sample on a small patch on your hair to make sure you are not allergic.
Thanks for the info - I'll look into this stuff.
Thanks for all the comments everybody.post #73670 of 1176668/8/12 at 12:05ampost #73671 of 1176668/8/12 at 1:21ampost #73672 of 1176668/8/12 at 3:07ampost #73673 of 1176668/8/12 at 4:29ampost #73674 of 1176668/8/12 at 6:40ampost #73675 of 1176668/8/12 at 6:58amThread Starterpost #73676 of 1176668/8/12 at 7:15ampost #73677 of 1176668/8/12 at 7:21ampost #73678 of 1176668/8/12 at 8:44ampost #73679 of 1176668/8/12 at 8:48ampost #73680 of 1176668/8/12 at 9:10am
