    I just have a normal one sided undercut and mainly concerned about the long part, would like it to have volume, etc, etc.

    Been using Sumotec by Bumble & Bumble for the past 4 years or so. Not too heavy, doesn't make my hair shiny and gives it a good texture and hold. B&B surf spray is also worth trying.

    I'm assuming spikey brush is the type that stands perpendicular to where it comes out of your head? If so, have you guys used that trick where you put a beanie on after you wash your hair and let it dry under there? I've used that and it's decently successful in taming my hair and making it less puffy when short. With this method, I generally never use product anymore.

    Currently growing out my hair from the typical short on sides long on top. Tying up my hair and putting it under a beanie until it dries is getting me through the awkward grow out phase.

    ^Yeah basically. I won't be much help there, though I've heard good things secondhand about bumble & bumble for that type. If you're floppy like me then you probably want mousse and a light wax to add volume and texture.

    Blowdryers are also magical but I'm usually too lazy in the morning.

    For asian hair...i gave up on product a long time ago. Instead of spending money on product, just have to spend it on frequent haircuts.

    Short on side, as high as possible without the carrot top look, grow out the top/bangs. Blow dry, no product, looks great for about 2-3 weeks max until it grows out and its awful until you get the next haircut...

    If it's wax you're looking for… I've been obsessed with this shit for years. Best I've ever used… no surprise it's Japanese.

    I have, "asian hair". From my years of experimenting, I have found the following products to work depending on the style you are going for.

    Undercut: Garnier Fructis leave in conditioner + Hairbond Moulder and Shaper <-After washing your hair let it dry till it's fairly damp and apply a decent amount of leave in conditioner, use a roll comb to get that curled front, and blow dry hair into place. Once that is done, before going out, apply one or two finger dabs of product into your palms, rub it, and start styling. You can try doing this first without the leave in conditioner, but it may not be as effective.

    Typical messy textured look or sides cut, hair on top standing up - Gatsby moving rubber - grey or purple one
    Gatsby has plenty of videos of people using their products on youtube, just search it up as a reference.

    i actually use gatsby but I don't know if I'm using the best type as there's like 10, and I've a feeling it's pretty damaging to my hair from just the way it feels. Otherwise it's probably solid but was wondering if there are more "natural" options. To be specific I have a side undercut but not too extreme. I just want the long part to stand up more and look shinier.

    If you want your hair to stand up more your best bet is blow dry. Pomade or whatever isn't going to do that for you unless you're on that 80's hairspray kick, and even then you'd still need a blow dry.

    I don't think there is really anything "natural" about crazy hair wax unless you just use bee's wax or something. Gatsby is my backup when I run out of the good shit, but it's a bit more moist and thus a little "greasy", while the Tu-re Syoss wax is very "dry" and more for sculpting.

    How do you mean you think it damages your hair? Wax certainly builds up a little, but I've never felt it damaged my hair the way chlorine or harsh products have.

    I didn't realize there was a hair thread! OK, agreed. Was that directed to me? What picture reference do you mean?

    It was directed at accordion. I'm guessing his hair is a bit too dark to see any texture? idk

    KoY I think you should grow it out along the lines of say Our Legacy store model:
    [​IMG]

    Of course I'm biased towards long hair, but also that way you may be working with your hair's natural tendencies - ie. being kinda straight and flat, rather than trying to make your hair do something it doesn't want to (voluminous, messy) by using copious amounts of product or whatever.

    That's pretty cool, my hair is just about down to the bottom of my chin atm, so it'd be another 10-15 cm until it's as long in that pic, will have to see if I have the patience to grow it for another half a year.

    All the suggestions from everyone else are much appreciated as well, think I'll book a visit at the hairdresser for some trimming and maybe if she has some suggestions, and if not I'll try to find some of the stuff suggested (I've seen Bumble recommended before + I think I can get it here so it would probably be a good place to start)

    I have a ton of B&b stuff and it's great. Have the surf spray in today just to give my hair a bit of hold, but I haven't really found the product that speaks to me the best. It might have to be a combination of the mousse and a finishing product along with a hair dryer...

    KOY: A hairstylist or someone who works with hair and product every day would best be able to turn what you want to do with your hair into reality, and the immediate feedback you can have in the process is a definite plus as well. My barber pretty much only uses Layrite exclusively, so I may have to turn to another avenue for product and styling advice.
