I use it as a prestyler, abt 5 pumps with hairdryer. Hair becomes stiffer and moldable and holds volume/shape throughout the day. Easy to wash out too.
I tried some high end products, this one has the qualities that satisfied me. The matte finish and texture is on point, it really has a strong finish. Usually i ride motorcycle, so even after using helmet, the hair is restylable. I was quite skeptical whether this will work in my fine hair concerning the volume and so on, but it work beautifully. Using it as a prestyler is also very good, have to use very little though. The shipping was quite fast and i was satisfied with my first purchase on this website!
I was a little sceptical given the cost is pretty steep for an aftercare hair product. But I must admit it was surprisingly useful! My hair length is pretty long so had to use 3-5 drops! It wasn't too oily for me probably because my hair is naturally drier. The scent is very pleasant, quite similar to those high-end men's fragrance scent!
After 3 weeks of usage, here are my honest thoughts on it:
It is my first time trying this brand! It is soft and easy to scoop. I barely noticed any scent even on closed up, perfect if you're looking a product with low scent. As any matte product, you have to work fast as it dries quickly. One trick to make it more malleable is applying it on slightly damp hair but you will have to use a little more than usual to let it hold.
As my hair is pretty long, to the length that I'm able to pull all back for a tiny topknot. It can only last me about half a day (provided you don't get caught by strong wind at outdoors).
However is an easy fix, I simply add another post-styling product to last it a full day. Since is a matte product, you will still get little strangle of hair sticking out, not the completely clean look to it.
I got it at a promotional price and I must admit it is worth it! Given my hair length, I have tried many products but it didn't impressed me as this one does. Definitely going to my list of go-to!
Online purchase can be trusted, SGpomade provides an excellent service, and the delivery service was very systematic. I received the item in good condition. Imperial gel pomade easy to apply and the smell is delicious ( lychee )—high-quality product.
