I'd be interested in this, too. There's a surprisingly barren well of resources out there for this sort of thing.

+1 You should try to get one of the mods to pin this to help prevent the creation of unnecessary individual threads in the future.

I'll certainly edit the OP if people want to share some sites. We could even put together a list of products to try for desired hairstyles.

I have been using Bumble and Bumble Sumotech for the last 2 years or so and am starting to dislike it more and more as my hair gets thinner and thinner so I'm considering either trying to (really hard to do) use less of it in my hair or try a new product altogether. Any recommendations? Also I shampoo every night which doesn't help at all I'm sure, using Nioxin stage 2 at the moment, how many times would you guys suggest a week?

I've only used Sumowax, but don't really care for it. I've found it makes my hair too heavy, even though I've read many customer reviews claiming the opposite. I don't use much of it, either.

Honestly, I've gotten better hold without the added weight from a combo of Got2B glue and John Frieda All-Out Hold hairspray.

Is there a reason you shampoo every night? Most people agree that it's not necessary unless you're sweating a ton. Even then, you can probably get away with rinsing instead of shampooing a lot of the time.

Nioxin, I should mention, doesn't do anything with regards to hair loss. I'm not sure if you're aware of that, but it's a common misconception that it does. That stems from its thickening properties, which can create the illusion of hair restoration.

Even then, I found it to do little in regards to thickening. I don't shampoo much anymore, but would still like one that actually thickens. I've heard great things about Aveda Pure Abundance. It's pricey, but you can stretch it a ways if you aren't shampooing often. I've got a similarly sized bottle of my current shampoo, which I've had for more than a year.

GJ!

I hope you didn't waste away too much of your life in the past months contemplating the 17 seconds it would have taken you to create this thread.

I have incredibly fine/thin hair that loves to lay flat. I've been using American Crew Fiber for a while now and I really like it because it gives a decent amount of hold and it still lets me run my hands through my hair. However, the one problem I keep running into is that it really only lasts for a few hours before it falls right back down. Are there any similar products that would have a longer lasting hold?
post #28 of 1137
Are you blowdrying your hair when you style it? That helps a lot with hold.

Definitely put Gatsby moving rubber purple and green on the OP so everyone knows cheap easy hair products. Ebay is defs the cheapest got some for $6 (80g container) free shipping worldwide.

This, I believe, is due to the fact that I was probably overcompensating and producing more oils when I was washing my hair more often, since with every washing you strip a great deal of essential oils from your scalp.

Anyone else experience something similar to this?

I do this.
