    Kenra Texturizing Taffy - great texturing and hold without the stiffness. Matte finish san guido sheen

    The kenra stuff looks pretty interesting...where do you get your supply? Doesn't seem like a brand readily available at a Brick&Mortar.

    Yup, I saw amazon has it for $19 -- wondering if there were a smaller shop that could use the business..

    Bumble and Bumble is the best. Depending on my hair length, I use either their grooming cream (when my hair gets a little longer), or Sumo Tech when my hair's a little shorter and choppier.

    American Crew's pomade is nice too, for a more overtly styled look.

    Seconding the Bumble & Bumble line. Sumo Tech is also the best thing I have come across out there for short to medium length hair. The key is to use only a tiny amount and work it out in your hand first. Too much makes you look like a grease bag.

    bumble & bumble sumotech
    bedhead hard to get
    bedhead hardhead

    I seem to go back and forth. Right now I've been using the hard to get and hardhead together. When I use the sumotech it's usually by itself.

    There's also one by Kenra, the working wax (#15), that I liked alright. It smelled pretty good too.

    How well does it work on coarse hair?

    American Crew fiber is great.

    Tried Murray's Pomade, pain to get out.

    I got the Aveda clay after everyone on the internet was raving about it too, but the smell is too strong. It's a shame too, because the hold really is great.

    gatsby pink tub is what i use. it's good, but if hair gets long then it won't hold well.

    this touravi wax my korean hair stylist has is pretty much the same.

    sebastian xtah crude clay -- i also have a tub, but i don't like the waxy oily feeling it leaves, and the hold isn't great. it's good for some volume, but if you use it too much then it leaves white specks in ur hair that look like nits.

    Kinda looking for a new shampoo. I swim in the pool 2-3 hours everyday and it's really damaging my hair by making it all dry so it always stands up (I kind of like the look) but I need something that will clean it without completely softening up my hair.

    Redken Polish Up Pomade

    Really like the smell, stays sorta moist all night, so it isn't for a "strong hold" but it works for me.

    I wanna use more Redken stuff but I don't like the price. For hair styling, it's okay, a tub lasts me forever since I just use a little. But for shampoo and conditioner I tend to go through it fairly quickly. Usually use Garnier Fructis (sleek and shine) for my conditioner, currently using Redken Clean Up (I think?) as my shampoo.

    I remember trying some d:fi stuff a while ago that seemed to be pretty excellent and wouldn't mind trying more of their stuff. I suck at hair though, so I dunno.
