    Jojoba Crystal wax is the best for men’s hair styling. I highly recommend it! Highly manipulative, long lasting strong hold and washes out with water. I have been getting this from <a href="http://www.jojobawax.com">Jojobawax.com</a> and <a href="http://www.hairbeautyshopper.com">hairbeautyshopper.com</a>! If you give it a go you will never want to use anything else!

    i'm partial to Night Rider by Kevin Murphy. i have thick and coarse asian hair that usually laughs at any kind of wax or molding clay, so i usually have to use a lot more product than the average person to get any kind of hold. with this stuff, i use about a dime sized daub.

    i was pleasantly surprised by Night Rider bc it has a softer texture (than AC Fiber) but it has a really nice amount of hold while still being moldable. most products like this either stay pliable in the hair but don't hold and dissipate into nothing, or they have a super hold but once you try to restyle it loses its original holding strength. anyway, with Night Rider, the heat from your hands makes the product moldable, but a few mins after you've put everything in place, it freezes it nicely. you can run your fingers through it again to try and restyle later and it will warm up into its moldable state again, but will then set again.

    it's not a revolutionary concept or anything; it's what these types of products are supposed to do. i've just finally found one that does what it should, and if it works on my unruly hair, it should be plenty good enough for normal hair.

    it's not greasy or sticky, which blows my mind bc i usually need something tacky to create any kind of hold. it definitely has a better hold than Fiber and smells way better - like a natural beeswax/orange scent. you can apply it to dry AND damp hair, but like all products like this you need to really rub the product in your hands till you can't see it anymore then apply.

    BTW, i'm a hairstylist and have used just about everything from Murray's to Oribe's 24 Karat Gold Pomade.

    i think i've pimped out Kevin Murphy enough, oy.
