Such a misunderstood product. I threw my first can away because of complaints that most bring up. It melts. It's too oily. The wet look belongs in the 90s. You cant get it off your hands, ect.... Since then I have given it another chance. For $4, why not? I have found out how to use it in a way that does away with all the usual complaints. I always use Murray's Superior after I wash my hair. I liquefy the surface with a blow dryer before I apply. To get the product off my hands, I use dish soap. My hand and bar soap cant cut through it. It gets better after the first shower. I dont wash my hair every day, so when I have Murray's in it, I rinse at a very warm temperature. Not only does this melt the wax again and make it easy to spread around, but most of the oil will completely rinse out of your hair, leaving most of the wax. At this point it will only have a slight sheen, if any, and you can do damn near anything you want with it the next day and it will be matte. I would compare this pliable feeling to not washing your hair for 4-5 days, but of course it's much more hygienic than that. If you dont want the first day of shiny hair, then use the product at night, so you can rinse in the morning. It's a wonderful base of any other product you might use after that. It also easy to "clump" your hair after the Murray buildup has set in. Another benefit is that your hair will never dry out if you use this product all the time. Swimmers should take notice.
