So I am an asian male and my hair is really strong and hard to style. Its not curly but not overly straight and it will style the way I want it to but it won't last very long. My hair is usually 5-7 inches long and here are the products I've tried so far: Crew Fiber- seems to work better for shorter hair. a bit too dry for me. makes my hair harder to control. Crew Molding Clay- easier styling than crew fiber but hold isn't strong enough Crew Forming Cream- not enough hold. Crew Firm Hold Gel- Decent hold at start but doesn't last more than 3-4 hours. Aveda Firm Hold Gel- Not as strong as Crew gel. But cool smell. Decent hold without hair getting hard or flaky. And I FIRST use gel... and then a layer of paste/cream, yet it eventually wears out pretty quick. Does anyone have any better experiences/recommendations with other products that would be better suited for me? All in all I either use too little and not being able to control my hair or using too much and having too much of a "slicked back" look. Thanks ahead of time!
