Best unrestrictive men's hair styling product?

Asked by Unit134679 (93points) September 27th, 2008

I’m looking for a men’s hair styling product that can shape my hair without making it stiff. I want to be able to manipulate my hair at any time and have it stay instead of at application.

I’ve read that wax could work but I am uncertain how effective it would be. Also I’d prefer it not make my hair shine.

Control Paste by Aveda

Smells great, works great, no helmet head.

A bit harder to find but I use Jonathan product line “dirt.” it’s that guy who had a hair styling reality show a couple of years ago, has a great product line; I have the coarse “Asian” hair and it allows me to do the “messy” look without my hair looking greasy or spikey (like ICE). No residue and lasts all day.

I’m female, but I have a spiky cut… I use Sport Fiber Paste by LA Looks. It’s in a blue tub. They also had a TERRIFIC wax… I can’t find it anymore… but it was in an orange tub… they must’ve stopped making it :(

If you use wax, make sure you get “dry” wax. It’s usually in a tube, instead of a tub. It doesn’t make it greasy.

@ sndfreQ – You wouldn’t believe how many ways I tried spelling that before I gave up and went with a sound a like.

Yeah, that stuff. But not the slick back way. Just a little bit roughed through.

@Bri_L & sndfreQ: Pommade? Does that stuff even exist? I thought it was just in the movie. Good movie indeed.

@xioioix: I think that is what I am looking for…thanks!

@Bri_L: I was wrong! It’s pomade (one M)

@Unit134679: Check this out!

Wrong?!?!?

Then what did I just smear in my hair and where are all these bees coming from?!?!!?!?

Unit134679's avatar

@sndfreQ: I guess any pomade would do
