Brylcreem Strong Wax
Disadvantages: Everything as it was rubbish
I bought this wax as it was on offer for half its usual price and as it was only £1.79 I decided to try it out.
I have shortish spiky hair which needs something strong to both style it and keep it from moving when it is in place.
This promised that it was a strong hold wax so I thought it would be fine for my hair but it turned out to be horrible to use and useless at keeping my hair in place and it definitely isn't something that I would ever buy again.
The wax comes in a plastic tub and it has a semi solid texture. You are just supposed to need a small amount of wax to style hair. As it was the first time I had used this particular wax I took a small pea sized amount from the tub to use as I didn't want to use too much. You rub the wax between your hands and then just rub it all over your hair and then style as you want it.
As soon as I put this on my hair I knew I didn't like it. The wax was just so greasy and it came me absolutely no control over my hair.
My hair is a bit frizzy and wavy and I need a strong wax to be able to manipulate my hair into a style and to also keep it in that style. This gave absolutely no control for my hair and I couldn't get my hair into its normal style as it gave no structure to my hair at all.
It was also so greasy that my hair looked as though I had just dunked it in chip fat. It actually reminded me of Vaseline both in how it looked and to the extent of how it held my hair in place. I couldn't spike it as the spikes would just fall down and my hair would flatten almost instantly. I do have thick wavy hair but as this was supposed to be a strong hold I expected it to at least be able to do what I wanted as I have never had this problem before with a strong hold hair wax.
I only used this a couple of times before giving up completely and just going to buy something else as it really was terrible and quite possibly the worst hair wax that I have ever used. I can't imagine what kind of hair this is designed for as it is supposedly made for hair like mine but it was next to useless.
Summary: Save your money and buy something else instead
