Hello mylotters! Who uses here hair styling wax? Who uses here hair styling gel? Normally, i am using styling wax and the effect is that it makes hair sticky to make it more manageable and there are different style of styling wax which depends on your type of hair and design. Today, i just bought a hair gel to use as a substitute for wax. Normally, when we were kids, gel makes hare compact and shiny which is somehow different to wax. These days, styling gels differ only there holding capacity, some have extreme hold, others are normal hold. I tried the normal hold, and i can feel my hair more manageable unlike when i use styling wax. However, the good thing is that, it makes my hair non sticky and gives shine. . .By the way, i am using the same brand of wax ang gel.

There are so many brands and variants of hair styling wax in the market. In addition, you can choose from many type of wax for your desired hair style. Some are sticky, some are like gels, some are shiny, some are dull, some are oily, some are dry. :)T

I don't use either but I'm betting the wax is stickier. I can't stand to have that stuff in my hair, it makes it feel like I never washed it. I'd rather my hair fly away in all directions before I end up with it in my hair, LOL. But I'm sure there are styles that allow it to look good with. I wish I could help you but am just trying to find topics to post in.
