Wax, Clay, Pomade, Putty, Paste, Gum - has anyone else built a collection of hair styling products in the little round containers? Whenever a new product hits the shelf, I have to try it.

 

I have really thick hair, so I usually need a product with very strong hold. Some of my must have products are:

 

American Crew - Defining Paste

Alberto - Texturising Gum

Bedhead - Matte Separation

Redken For Men - Working Wax Manuever

 

Since I have tried every product under the sun, I have noticed that many cheap products are just as good as the really expensive ones. In fact, one product I loved - was actually made by Gillette and was called Precision Putty. Gillette's hair products didn't take off, so it was discontinued, but it was a fanastic product.

 

Currently I am trying Old Spice's new hair styling product line - so I will let you know what I think.

 

So is anyone else a little obsessed with hair styling products?

Yes, my girlfriend. 

If things don't work out between you both - let me know, since I already have something in common with her.

 

 

A love of older men with shaved heads?

Well I am 43, but no - I would never shave my head. I like having thick awesome hair that I can grow to various lengths. Maybe if I start going bald, then I will do the Bruce Willis.

Nice come back

Thank you sir.

You must have been sick the day they taught sarcasm.

No actually - I take great pride in the fact that I excel at sarcasm, cynicism and smarminess.

You had me going for a bit, HM.  At least, I hope that's what you were doing.

If not:  there's a cure.

Absolutely. I love sarcasm and use it constantly.

Either you're playing me, or you're playing you.  I think it's me.

You will never know for sure. Unfortunately sarcasma isn't strong enough.

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More

"Interesting list of arts.  I don't agree that all of these are necessary for a man to learn, but hey, neither is Minecraft and I enjoy it in my downtime.  I look forward to your next post."

Relatively new here; thought I'd say hello

Hello men,I'm not new to Art of Manliness, but I am new to the community. I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm almost 30, married for just over a year, and we have our first child on the way. I'm Mormon. I worked for five years sewing men's clothing, which is perfectly fine as a manly career in my opinion, but it was a dead-end job ultimately, so I quit and became an electrician. I'm still in my first year as an apprentice, but I'm very happy doing it. Before that, I was…See More

"My wife likes my hair tamed, but she doesn't want me to get rid of any of it entirely. She likes the look of hair on a man. I'd say don't shave, and unless your pit hair is really out of control, don't trim it either. "
