      Recommended!

      I bought this hair shaper from Amazon for just under £6, that was for a 50g sampler tube.

      The hair shaper is great for use on wet OR dry hair. I wet my hair and shampoo it as normal, I then use a small blob of this at a time and run it through my hair, scrunching my hair as I go. Then when my hair dries it becomes more of a "bed head" messy look. This is more like "my style" so I am happy with that. The hair shaper is easy to use. It scoops up well and it smells great too. You can also buy a Mint one for fresh smelling hair! It's great for wavy hair and it's great for straight hair too as it actually KEEPS your hair straight all day!

      I find that even on wet hair this really works to set your style. It fragrances your hair and the wheat proteins in there help to strengthen damaged hair, which is something I need right now! Using the shaper on dry hair is great too. The shaper helps to smooth down the cuticle of the hair, leading to a neater look. It also works wonders for split ends. It seals them until you brush (or shampoo) the shaper out and it's also ideal for using after curling your hair as it helps to set your curls. It doesn't create a frizzy look so you need not worry about that!

      It's great for all hair types and lengths. My friend uses this and her hair is REALLY short. It creates little spikes and the effect lasts all day. She looks really funky with her Fudge spikes!

      A great hair shaper that really works!

      A hair shaper product that holds your hairstyle and smells lovely as well

      My hair has always been a problem - it's thin, mousy and wayward - so I am always on the lookout for good hair products. When I went to my hairdresser I noticed on top of everything else she was putting on my hair that she was using Fudge Hair Shaper. I asked her about it and she told me how good this product was, and considered it an essential hair product to use.

      Next day I rang her to see if they sold this product in the salon - my hair was still in shape and looked great! Usually after a night's sleep my hair is flat and looks nothing like it did as I left the salon, so I was more interested than before. They had sold out at the salon but she advised me of several places to buy this in town, one was a cut-price hairdressers and was not very far away, so I went there. When I asked the price and was told it was £11.95 I was aghast, but I still bought it anyway, anything that helps my hair look good is priceless.

      The young man in the salon told me to put a small bit of this hair shaper on all my fingers (as in lightly dipping in the pot), and gently stroke it on my hair, he also said to use it on ALL of my hair, rather than the bits I want to "sculpt" as it would look strange. Having used it everytime I wash my hair I can see what he means, it can look a bit unnatural on it's own. It says on the pot that this is a product to make your hair looked "lived in" , seriously, who wants their hair to look lived in? That's why I go to the hairdressers so that my hair looks like new! I don't think it makes my hair look lived in or I wouldn't buy it, but it does add texture and definition.

      But hey, if I find a product that keeps my wayward hair in place and looking nice then I will buy it. I think £11.95 is a high price to pay, I can see now that I can buy it for £8.50 or less online for the same 75g tub, but I have had my pot for months, a little goes a long way and as such will last a long time. I always put the lid back on straight away, at that price I want it to last as long as possible, as I use plenty of hair products anyway!

      It's a strong hold product for your hair and it does what it says, it's a hair shaper that definitely smells of fudge (but not too heavily). I use this every single time I wash and dry my hair, I use a thickening mousse when I blow dry, and then apply the Fudge afterwards. My hairdresser rubs the shaper in her hands and applies it that way, I still do the fingers bit but will give the whole hand thing a try, the more shaper you use the stronger the hold. My hairdresser then adds hairspray, but I don't, the shaper is strong enough to hold my hair from wash day to wash day, I recommend this product, it can be a bit pricey but lasts for a long time.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Salon style Hair at evryday prices.

        Introduction

        Ten years ago I was in a terrible state over my hair, which was falling out in handfuls. Before long it got so bad that I had my hair cropped to within a half-inch of my head and felt like a model, but without the model looks. Eventually I was diagnosed with thyroid problems and my hair grew back but I will never forget the anguish and the trouble needed to have the courage to go outside. During this period of time I must have spent a small fortune on hair-care products. Keeping my hair short was essential and styling it was almost non-existent until I saw a specialist in hair loss and bought some products to keep it in tip-top condition. My own hairdresser was wonderful and introduced me to the Fudge range, which were only then available through salons.

        Fudge Crème

        The product then was the same as it is now only it came in small tubes and cost a fortune. As my hair was very short I needed something to boost it and the fudge hair shaper promised to sculpt and mould my hair into whatever style I could manage with the hair I had. It worked perfectly giving my hair much more body and a tousled, 'just got of bed' look that made me look and feel more feminine. For a while I used nothing else but after a while I bought cheaper products and left off using this until about three years ago.

        This time I needed something to style my hair for a wedding and had my hair cut and styled at a top salon in London, courtesy of my daughter. When asked whether I wanted a gel shaper or a glue I felt confused, until I remembered the Fudge make and asked about it. Yes, they did use it and I was given a lesson in how to get a lot of height in my hair. The stylist rubbed a very small amount of the product onto the palms of her hands to warm the product, which is essential to getting the right texture. Then she scrunched my hair at the roots and fanned her hands out creating an upswept look. It looked really easy the way she did it but I knew from experience that this needs practice. I was so pleased with my style that I bought a salon tube of this product, which cost me £9.50 for a 50g travel size tube. I've used it ever since and now have the tub pictured that I bought locally for £8.50.

        How to use

        I still have the tube I bought from the salon and this is called Fudge Mint flavour hair shaper. It's very similar to the tub but it's cheaper now and still does the same job. Mine is called molding crème and is green in colour although the smell isn't that strong when used. It looks like a thick crème and is slightly sticky on your fingers. A little bit of this goes a long way especially if you choose a strong hold. These products are available in different 'flavours' as well as different strength hold. Mine is factor 10 (it goes from 1 to 15), which is just right for my current style, which is still very short. The directions for use are exactly the same as the tub, and as the stylist showed me how to use it. As far as I know this is used on dry hair, though I imagine it would work on damp hair as well. You use it to scrunch your hair into shape by using your hands to get the effect wanted. It's as simple as that.

        The results are slightly different every time it's used. I think it depends on how you feel at the time, how much you use and what style you want to achieve. I've had huge hair, spiky, upswept, bobbed, and curled around the face. I love the feathered effect and it's so easy to get this by running a bit of the crème through the side hair and bringing to a point or fluffing out slightly. Generally I use a small amount when I'm going out or traveling. It can be used on it's own or as a finishing touch to a particular style. I prefer it to mousse as it washes out easily and doesn't leave my scalp feeling dry as some mousses do. I don't need hair spray with it either so my hair feels softer to the touch.

        The Sabre Corporation in Australia makes the product, but fortunately you don't need to go down under to buy it. As well as salons (who charge extra) you can now buy this online and in some stores, though it's wise to shop around. I prefer the tube to the tub as I can get it in my travel bag, but it's a matter of choice. I won't give a long list of ingredients but this does have wax in it and as far as I know it's the combination of the ingredients with the wax that gives the hold factor.

        I think we all have a certain product that we wouldn't be without. Mine is this and I recommend it without hesitation to anyone (you can buy it for men or women) who wants a bit of movement in your hair but prefers to choose how much movement and how much height you want. This delivers on any hair, short, long, curly, sleek, and especially soft, fine and dry like mine.

        It might not make you look like a model, but it's the next best thing!

        As always, thanks for reading.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Top product

          I have never been one for loyalty when it comes to hair products - for any bodycare products in general to be honest. This is, however, one of the things I must have at all times when it comes to hair styling and that is the Fudge Hair Shaper. This product comes in a variety of sizes and I always buy it in a 75g pot for around £6-£7. As you may agree this is quite expensive, but it does the job better than all the cheaper brands I have tried.

          As you may be able to tell from the name of the brand, the Hair Shaper smells great! It could be a little tempting to grab a spoon and tuck in! It comes in a small pot with all the details on the outside in bold black writing on an orange coloured label. The creme is very easy to apply and is great for texturising, moulding and general styling of your hair. The hold is very strong but still leaves the hair pliable whilst offering texture, volume and definition. I find the creme very long lasting and I didnt need to reapply for evening use after a long day at work with it in.

          Fudge also have a mint version of this Hair Shaper in their range, and overall they have a wide selection of products for all types of hair and look you are aiming for. yes, the price is a little on the high side but I have experimented with more expensive products with little or no success.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Smells great, holds well & it doesn't leave a residue

          Why I bought it:
          I have been trying to grow my fringe out for a while now, and I entered the stage where my fringe stabs my eyes, but it doesn't quite sweep to the side yet. Solution: use a hair product to hold it to the side. But which one? I tried several hairsprays, waxes and mousse, but none of them seemed to hold them in place. As this is a review for the fudge shaper, I don't want to write negative things about the ones I tried on this review. I looked on amazon and read through some reviews. I decided to give another hair product another shot, and in comes my fudge shaper. I have been using it for a few days now, and the results have been fantastic.

          Good point:
          The main points about this product is that it does what it says on the package. It keeps your hair in position for a long time, and it smells fantastic. It also doesn't give your hair that horrible greasy look, although it does have a minor shine to it (which I find to be acceptable).

          Negative points:
          I haven't come across any yet. It's a fantastic product, and having read the other product reviews, I don't feel that it is hard to come across at all. Then again, I do love to shop from amazon, which is where I bought mine from.

          How to use it/ease of use:
          It is really user friendly. Rub the product in your hands, then apply to your hair. The product is quite gooey (see photo), but it doesn't leave any residue (which would have been a big problem as I have black hair).

          Aesthetics:
          The smell of the product is fantastic, a kind of fruity smell. The look of the packaging is quite cool as it has a see through plastic around the outside, with the container contained within. I'm not sure if it has a function, but it looks nice. The feel of the product is gooey. The taste is... well, I wouldn't want to find out, and I wouldn't suggest any of you to try it either :)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great styling cream, well-worth the price

          I have used Fudge hair shaper for a long time and it works very well. It has a unique texture, which is quite creamy and not very wet. Therefore it helps to maintain a dry look upon application as opposed to a wet one that you might attain from using an actual gel.

          The product nowadays comes in a white and orange tub. There is a transparent plastic part on the outside where the title is and it shows that this product has a maximum hold factor 10. It certainly does as it keeps my hair styled very well and can be used for some very spikey styles.

          The lid simply unscrews and there is a plastic cover over the cream inside. You can remove this and throw it away - it's just used to keep the stuff fresh before you open it. The cream inside has a very faint yellow or off-white colour. It smells wonderful - literally of fudge. It's quite sweet to smell and rather addicting. I tend to associate the smell with going out as I use it whenever I do!

          The cream has quite a thick texture, which is good as it makes it ideal for styling hair. Once I have washed my hair and blow dry it, I first straighten it before applying this. The best way to actually apply it is rubbing it on your hands after taking a small amount out the pot. Then physically shape your hair rather than just rubbing it in all over. If you try to shape individual small parts of your hair with this, it'll actually work surprisingly well and you can pull off a nice style.

          I like to use a hair spray after using Fudge to keep my hair fixed in position. This always works. If you apply too much of the stuff, you will notice a slightly wet look but you'd have to apply a large amount to notice this! Otherwise, it keeps your hair looking quite natural. I have used it on short to medium length hair and it works just as well but seems a bit of a waste with hair that is too short. When my hair used to be more difficult before I straightened it, this was the only product that worked. It worked so well that I still use it today. You can get a 75g pot for as little as just £6.25 on Amazon, which is a lot cheaper than you will pay in a hair salon! You can even buy a mint version. The RRP is always around £12 in salons, which isn't cheap so certainly order it online! I have ordered it from Amazon before and it came quickly, even with a small sample of some light version too.

          Thanks for reading!

          :)

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good hair product for positioning into particular styles, although can be a bit tricky to manage.

            I've used this product for a couple of years now, and only recently switched to something else. It's a good product for short, choppy and textured styles - the hold is great and it doesn't create a shiny look that can often look a bit odd in such styles. It smells really good too - almost like vanilla. It lasts very well, a couple of fingers of product should be enough to hold most styles up, and it restyles pretty well too, without too much fluffyness occurring. It is reasonable value too - comparable with similar products in this market.

            There are a few downsides - the product becomes more difficult to use when you get toward the end of a pot. It begins quite creamy, but once you're mid way through, turns quite gloopy and thick, which can result in it clumping in the hair or leaving little dots of white residue. It also doesn't hold particularly well in hot weather - my style goes flat quite quickly!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A superb hair product to style all kinds of hair to your preference

            I have searched around for a long time trying to find a hair product that works well with my hair and I came across the Fudge Hair Shaper a while ago. It is made in Australia and can be purchased online or in good hair salons for a premium price. However, it is well worth the buy as it does a fantastic job, smells lovely and lasts a long time.

            It comes in a grey tub with an orange lid. The grey and orange colour scheme is unique and very modern as part of the Fudge variety. The orange lid has the letter F on it with a grey background surrounding it, which stands out. You can definitely not miss this one on the shelf. The front of the tub has the Fudge logo and says 'hair shaper' but bare in mind there are other tubs that look the same such as the 'fat head' variety. The hair shaper costs a whopping £12.95 for a 100ml tub. However, it does last a long time, as you only need a small amount when using it.

            This hair shaper works best with slightly longer or thicker hair as it is very strong and helps give it style. When you unscrew the big orange lid, there is a plastic cover to preserve the freshness. Once you lift this off, a sensational aroma of fudge hits you, which is to die for. It smells wonderful and is lovely to have in your hair. The actual fudge is an off-white to pale yellow colour and is of quite a thick and creamy consistency. It is not like a gel but more like a thick cream, which doesn't feel very wet. This excellent texture gives a lovely basis to work with when styling your hair.

            The highlight of the product has to be the smell. It's just absolutely adorable and I have had a few comments before about the smell - good comments. I like to wash my hair with conditioner before applying this and use straighteners before hand if you do so. I still think it's important to apply this to slightly damp hair, but it should be 90% dry. This enables you to style it well rather than your hair flopping back down because it's too wet and then it's a waste of fudge. Get a small amount on your hands by dipping your finger in and then rubbing them together until they feel hot. Apply it to your hair as close to the roots as you can to really get it sticking up so you can style it as you like. If you want a dry look, use a very small amount but if you are looking for a slightly wet look, use slightly more with damper hair.

            Whether you are looking for a messy style or just a crazy style or even a French crop, Fudge will do a superb job. The thickness allows you to style it to the max and the smell is so fantastic that it's just irresistible to use. Despite the rather hefty price, it's a product well worth buying. A 100ml tub lasts me around three months if I use it five days a week on average. You really only need to apply a little bit as it is powerful stuff. It gives a strong hold throughout the day and you will smell it every now and then too like you're wearing it as aftershave. The only drawback for the product is that if it rains whilst you have this in your hair, it will start to drip down as big white drips, which doesn't look very nice. Obviously it's unlikely this will happen, but it's an experience I do not wish to have again. Overall, it's a great product for all kinds of hair - even the toughest to style!

            Thanks for reading,

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great for short to mid length hair

            I have used this product for years as it's one of the best i have found for keeping your style in place for long periods.

            One thing i have recently noticed is that it used to come in a grey packaging with an orange lid as shown here in the picture and it was 100g of product. They have since changed the packaging to a grey lid with an orange inside which is covered by a see through plastic and is now only 75g - but the price has stayed the same. I never buy mine frm high street hair dressers as i think it's a rip off and i can usually get a deal on ebay for about 3 jars plus delivery for around £12 so it's definitely worth shopping around for this.

            I like fudge as it's not too shiny so doesn't make you look as it you've overdone it withe the gel ( if you like the wet look then this probably isn't for you).

            I find it really easy to use i simply rub about a 5p piece amount in my hands and run through my hair and style and it lasts until i wash it out basically.

            I usually try to wash it out before i go to bed though or it can leave a bit of a stain on the pillows.

            An all round great product for hair though

            Disadvantages

            the best on the market,by a looooong way

            Fudge hair shaper is the best wax ive ever come across and im more than prepared to hand over upto £11 for it,its worth every penny.

            The wax is designed for medium length hair(around a max of 2inch).You only need to apply 3 peanut sized amounts and this wax will give a great,firm yet flexible hold all through the day,whatever the weather,warm to wet.Even if your hair does get wet,let it dry and you can simply restyle afterward.

            The product itself easily washes off both hair and hands,even without shampooing which is great because it cuts down on both mess and time.

            To apply the wax make sure your hair is dry,i wear my hair spiked and often straighten it to,i find this allows the wax to cling to the hair better.Simply apply the wax and comb it through your hair with your fingers,and style into place.The tub itself is 100g and i myself get around 5weeks of daily use out of this,so for £11 its not as bad as it first seems.The wax also has a really nice smell to it,its like a vanilla smell and its quite strong,it has a consistency of sort of toothpaste which makes it easy to work with.The beauty of this product is the fact you can rework it throughout the day without having to reapply.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              great styling product

              Fudge Hair Shaper is a great hair product that gives hair hold and texture without any stiffness. This product is labeled as a strong matte molding crème. This product is definitely unique, it is not a wax and not a gel but almost like a combination of the two. I purchased this product online from Mankind for around £11.

              --Advantages:--

              This product gives excellent hold to hair throughout the day whether it's hot or humid. Fudge Hair Shaper is easy to apply, just scoop a bit out, rub together with your hands, and apply to hair. This product definitely helps cut down on time spent styling your hair.

              It is easy to wash off hands when finished and when shampooed out leaves no reside behind. I have curly hair so I use this product to give my curls a nice texture, my husband usually this product everyday to style his hair in that spiky, messy look.

              Fudge does not dry hard or stiff. Since this product is a creme once it is applied to the hair, it is able to be reworked into shape or style desired. If you decide in the middle of the day you want a fin, then simply mold your hair into a fin and there it will stay!

              This product will give your hair a soft and natural look rather than greasy.

              --Application:--

              Make sure hair is completely dry before applying this product as it does not work well on wet or damp hair.

              You only need a small amount about 20-50p sized. Using your fingers, simply scoop the small amount of product onto the palm of your hand, rub together so the product coats your hands, and simply work into hair and style as desired.

              --Product Description:--

              The product comes 100g tub with a twist off top. 100g lasts about a month for us. One of the things I love most about this product aside from styling, is the smell. This product smells amazing; the aroma reminds me of vanilla or caramel frosting. Believe it or not, the product actually looks and has the same consistency of vanilla frosting as well.

              --Conclusion:--

              I highly recommend Fudge Hair Shaper if you are looking for a styling product that is neither greasy nor stiff.
