As above been using these for quite a while now, recently just purchased third bottle, been using it with the shampoo and i’m really happy with the result.
Haven been using it for quite a while now just purchased my third bottle, can already feel the difference. :)
Hold: I get a medium-firm with 3-4 scoops on dry hair. Don’t run your fingers through your hair unnecessarily as it brings out a lot of the product, and you lose hold very quickly. Make sure you apply enough in the first place. This does not harden in damp hair, and you will instead get a lower hold. Paradox is lightweight. You will use a lot of it to get a good hold, but you don’t have to worry about it weighing your hair down.
Shine and texture: Low shine. This is medium shine at first, but it drops to a low shine very quickly.
Scent: It smelled tangy when I first opened the jar, so I mistakenly thought I had a bad jar. If you’re worried about the sour undertone, that is the scent. The scent becomes much more toned down and pleasant when it’s in your hair and you get light whiffs of it occasionally.
Application: Easy and smooth, as you’d expect from a gel-based. It scoops out like soft ice cream, breaks down without effort, and applies without much tugging.
Restyling: No need for water. A comb or fingers will do. Don’t do this too much or you find you’ll have to apply more product.
Washout from hair: I am extremely particular about build up in my hair, and product tends to be hard to wash out from my hair. This is the first homebrew product I’ve experienced where the product washes out with literally just water.
Washout from hand: Strangely, washout from the hand is the worst I’ve experienced. This thing doesn’t come off with water and soap at all. Just wipe it off on a cloth to make it easier.
Overall: It’s an okay product. My favourite aspect is that this washes out so easily. For now, it is more a product I reach for when I know I just don’t want to fuss with washing product out of my hair, since Blumaan Fifth Sample provides a little more of a firm hold at the expense of being ever so slightly harder to wash out.
Good product....love e strong hold and matte finish...highly recommended. FAST DELIVERY TOO! thanks Sgpomades!
The smell of this product is very subjective.
The hold of it as it had advertised. Rather firm
The wash out is easy with just a single wash with just water.
The endurance to me is just about right. Lasted quite a few hours.
