    Hey,

    So I'm in the market for finally getting some styling products. Never used them and I feel that I need to start. My hair is very weird, it's somewhat light and thin, and it becomes a bit poofy after I take a shower. It also tends to sorta stay up on its own, meaning that without any gel or anything, it stays up. I don't like that look so I need something to bring it down a bit and allow me to style it like I want.

    What product would you guys recommend, and what brand is good for that product?

    Thanks.

    My go-to is Bumble and Bumble sumotech.

    I recently tried the new Baxter pomade...the slick one I really like. they have four of them...the clay...is better for when I have shorter hair.

    http://www.bumbleandbumble.com/produ...PRODUCT_ID=217 Kind of expensive, but my hairdresser charmed me into buying this stuff .. haven't looked back since. Amazing styling qualities, without any of the buildup/shine/gunky feel you get with every other product.

    Real talk: Aveda Men's styling cream (they also have pomades if you want more serious stuff). Malin + Goetz sage styling cream. Both are very good product, great for your hair, not too pliant but solid hold.

    Axe paste gets it done for me. Super cheap and effective with no flaking

    I use Alterna Hair Concrete and have had good success with it.

    It's low shine and seems to build volume pretty well for my thin hair. It seems a bit more thick than normal pomade and the smell is pretty mild which I prefer.

    I use it as an anti-wrinkle cream myself.
