    Thanks for the information! Your experience with KM and the Moulder is really helpful in what I need.
    Yeah, the Fiber doesn't hold well on its own. Its good for a casual look, but even then, its hold is pretty much done after the first few hours. Thanks for the recommendation on the Baxter. Always wanted to know more about it, but have smelt it in person and I just wish that it was more pleasant.

    Give us some deets on the baxter stuff if you try it. It would be cool to get some more opinions on it.

    Medium-strong hold but can leave hair with a gritty/sticky texture.

    Can be sticky if you use too much of it. I usually use maybe a dime-sized amount, rub in my palms, then spread pretty evenly throughout. I'll shape the wax after its all in there.

    PB after one use I think it is safe to say the baxter clay pomade works loads better then fiber for my hair...over the next week or so I will experiment with how it works for different dampness levels. The smell is meh but I can deal with that.

    It is a pain to get out of your hair though...might be taking evening showers as a result of this instead of just washing my face.

    Just want to throw my recommendation in for Lush Dirty Hair Cream. I got it on a whim after passing by a Lush and reading about it in here and I couldn't be happier. The smell takes a little getting used to, but the hold, duration, and matte finish is great. I mess around with my hair fairly often and it retains its hold very well throughout the day.

    For those of you that get your hair cut short, do you trim your sideburns as they grow? Do you just get a liner and edge em straight horizontally? Or do you fade them with razors? I have mine faded right now and if I don't trim routinely it looks retarded after a week.

    Do you have any pictures of what my hair might look like if I were to say grow my hair out to my shoulders? My hair "wings-out" around the sides and back. [​IMG]

    Do you think I can pull off this picture?
