    How much are you guys paying for a container of wax, like Gatsby? (I'm thinking per container of normal gatsby moving rubber)
    I use it myself, but I get a friend to bring it from Asia because the mark up is 200+% here (costs around $8 there and $30 before taxes here), but I'm wondering what it costs in the States - or do you get people to bring it over from Asia?

    IIRC the little 75g tub of Gatsby Power and Spikes costs around 50 pesos here, or just over a dollar. I usually buy 3 or 4 at a time.

    For very strong hold, I suggest

    Sebastian's Xtasy Crude Clay or the one I use is called Giesel Matte Clay and works awesome, except I haven't seen it anywhere else (even online) except where I get it.

    Gatsby is very matte, but doesn't give as much hold as I like.

    Uwajimaya sells them for 9 or 10 $
    I gotta agree with Tits McGee on this one. Gatsby's been solid since I needed to find a new product after Wella discontinued their MattMaxx.
    I didn't know you had enough hair to use wax? [​IMG] *flexes*

    Usually I do. Luckily enough for me my tits don't get in the way of applying the wax, either.

    The Canadian import tax is ridiculous then.

    I've found that as I try most waxes/pastes, they all seem to turn my blonde hair a shade of brown. Does anyone have any recommendations on a product that would retain my natural color while providing shape and hold? or is this wishful thinking?

    I have the baxter of california water pomade and clay wax and have only used both once. If anyone's interested, I'll ship either one to them for $5.00 plus shipping fees or both for $8.00 plus shipping.
