Hair styling products with wax bases are making a comeback. Unlike many products on the market, hair wax is versatile and can be used on a variety of hair types, textures and lengths. However, men’s grooming specialist GATSBY has launched gatsby THE DESIGNER – a line of hair styling products that combines the best of oils, gels and clays.

Hair wax not only has staying power, but it also makes your style look more natural.

When you run your fingers through your hair, you’ll notice that the “grip” of these formulas also removes hair-laden fingers from your scalp. The chemical nature of wax and some other hair styling products also means that it tends to be insoluble in water, and you’ll need to use a deep cleansing shampoo to remove it. The wax and scalp oil mixture can build up on the scalp if not removed completely. The result is usually: a flare-up of irritation, itching, and dandruff.

The Team Trials gatsby THE DESIGNER: Amos Look 1 with EXTREME CLAY
This extreme clay is an effective clay; a pea-sized amount goes a long way. Lightweight and highly viscous, the clay provides medium hold and a matte finish. While it has great hold, we still recommend using hairspray as a follow-up, especially for voluminous hairstyles. It works well with textured hairstyles like french tops, quiffs and curtain fringes.
