Booth,

The firm hold styling cream, does it have a stronger hold than the fiber? I have noticed that the fiber does not hold up very well when I am outside frown.gif

It is hard to say because the fiber is a completely different texture and product. I felt the fiber is just kind of pasty and doesn't really dry. The firm hold will dry more and it is creamy, like a thick lotion.

Will it flake?
post #605 of 1159
I don't think so. If it does I never noticed or encountered it.

I wish my hair didnt grow straight down ala dumb and dumber...

You could add your product as usual then blow dry your hair and tousle with your hands. This will get rid of that tacky crounchiness.

If i do that its like i never even put product in, in the first place.

Usually for me, that gelled, crunchy look goes away easily after it dries by just running my fingers through my hair about three times. The hold is still there, but it looks natural.

Any recommended hair product for a 50/60s side-part?

Why not try products used back then, brylcream or groom & clean. I prefer groom & clean as it washes off in just water.

The barber I go to has done a good job cutting the hair accordingly, but my hair is pretty thick and heavy, so it always falls into my face which does look bad.
I want my hair to look as naturally as possible, not wet or treated with gel after all.
What kind of product should I use to support my hair to stay in place?

Push to top :P Also interested in something similar to this. 

post #612 of 1159
So I've read the first 6 pages of the thread (300 posts) and I can't really find much of an answer.

For fine, thinning hair what is the best wax, pomade, etc? I currently style my hair messy if it makes a difference.

I was looking at Gatsby Spiky Edge but it sounds like that is rough on the hair and can pull some out whilst styling. Currently thinking maybe B&B Sumotech, Sumowax or Hairbond Moulder?

Would love some help.

I actually have Brylcreem. I'm looking for something a little less intense.

Let me clarify. I'm looking for a good, organic pomade/gel for side-parts. Anyone have a favorite?

American Crew Grooming Cream.

I style my hair in a side part and have tried all kinds of fancy modern pomades. The best product by far for nailing the look has been old school Brylcreem. It's a great product and the only thing that actually keeps my hair looking neat all day. American Crew et. al. dry out after a few hours and my hair poofs out. I have had no issues getting it out of my hair in the shower either.
