I love hair gels, not so big on hair wax since I have oily hair. I liked what I read about Vavoom's new Switch Flicks styler( a gel-wax mix) but was a bit worried about the wax part. Switch Flicks acts like a wax on dry hair or can be used on wet hair for a more gel like effect.
First time using it,. I think I used too much and it worked very well but it did seem to be more "waxy " on the hair than I wanted. I persisted though, because I really liked how well it held on the piecy sections of hair I used it on. After several more tries I am liking it more and more. I think that cooler weather bringing slighly drier ends will help as well. This is perfect to tamp down the flyaways .
I mainly use it on dry hair, just a bit, worked in my hands and into hair . It spikes up the piecy parts , smooths others and stays dry looking. As I said, it also has a nice hold to it. Not as strong as strong hold gel or a hairpspray but pretty good.
It's very light gel-wax so that helps. It comes in a pump bottle and should last really long.
Much of the Vavoom line from Matrix is worth checking out.
