“ Brand: Brylcreem / Type: Styling Product „
I don?t normally do reviews on hair or cosmetic products but as this is something i use quite a lot in my hair then i thought id do one on it.
Firstly this is quite cheap, i picked up a tub of this for less than a pound a while ago and its lasted me ages.
Its very simple and easy to use too. You just rub a small amount into your fingers, a peanut sized amount should do, but perhaps less if you have shorter hair. The key to this is is use as little as possible to get the effect as then it doesn?t look greasy or like you have too much product in.
The gum works really easily into the hair and its easy to distribute evenly as its not too thick, yet still quite firm in texture.
When added, if you have shorter hair, then its easy to stick bits up, however longer hair just adds texture and you may have to use another product if you want to stick your hair up.
The gum doesn?t make the hair look greasy at all, as long as you don?t use too much and also lasts quite a long time too. If i put some of this on in the morning then i usually find its still in when i get home, although if your going out that night then you would have to put a bit more in as well.
Altogether, this is a great hair product, it adds lots of texture to thin or thick hair and is excellent value for money too. If you have a shorter hair style or medium length and want to add texture then i really do recommend it.
I started using gum instead of gel probably about a year and I am not going to look back to the dark days of big clumps of hair sticking together, I prefer to look forward to a more natural look, that is not way too greasy looking! I used gel for about ten years before looking for something else. It was when i was in getting my hair cut that the barber said I should not use gel, but should use gum or fibre, as I am not getting any younger and there is not the same amount of hair on my head!
This is really good at giving a firm hold, even if it is a different feel to gel. In my opinion gel leaves your hard rock hard, whereas this gum leaves your hair looking more naturally but once in place, it will stay in place.
It is definitely for short hair and you do not need a lot of gum. The tub is quite small (100 ml) and you may think that it will run out very quickly, but you honestly do not need a huge amount.
It is easy to wash out as well, no after effects after a shower.
this product costs £2 every time and is well worth it.
Use this stuff on short to medium length hair / Get some between your fingers, rub them together, then roughly run 'em through your hair / Pull and twist bits around until it looks right, and when people say how good your style is, respond with 'What do you mean? I just get up in the morning and it looks like this' /
