I just bought some Aveda grooming clay which I'm going to try.

Also, I generally use American Crew Firm hold styling gel and got2b glued (styling spiking glue). The got2b is nice, because it's water resistant (it rains here a lot) so it has to be taken out with shampoo.

I recently picked up got2b magnetik, and it works pretty good as well. The hold is a little less than the got2b glued, but it's great as well.

I can't use any type of pomade. My hair is way too thick/stiff.

Lucky you.

I've used pretty much everything you can find at a Target/Wal-Mart. Never heard of these fancy branded wax/clay etc.

IMO, they all work the same.

For fauxhawk's, if one day you're styling it and you feel like it doesn't look the same as the other days before...it doesn't mean your product is old and it's time to buy a new one. Tt's time for a haircut

haha true! (last line)

I didn't mean "thick" like "dense", but like each strand is really thick. I look like a chia pet if I let my hair grow, lol.

But dnicetl, if you use the got2b glued, you can fauxhawk any length of hair, seriously. the stuff really is like glue.

Sounds like some hard stuff.

I personally prefer softer glue/wax.

Of course, I'd prefer not using anything on my hair but I'd look like every other Asian guy: shaved head or long, flat hair hanging over my face. (referring to where I live). OH, and guys still spike their hair!

I've recently switched to water pomade because it's cheap and doesn't sound damaging to my hair, but I should try reading the ingredients more carefully

EDIT:

GAHHH, I wish I can get a fauxhawk/"messy bed hair type fauxhawk" without products hehe.

How is Bumble and Bumble?
Soft or hard?

You can blow dry the substance to soften it a little I learned.

My son uses Got2b glued. It's good but leaves white junk in if you put to much on.

Cheap too!

The hairstyle that you basically see everywhere, kind of like a pyramid on the head.

Some people may say it's a wussy's way of a mohawk.


There's a lot of ways to do it/look IMO...I kind of like it messy and not too "clean cut."

not really a wussy mohawk, alot of my punk friends prefer a fauxhawk to a mohawk.

and some of my MMA friends have fauxhawks...so wussy? i think not.

MMA friends as in fanboys or actually in MMA/Training?

And I'm not calling it a wussy mohawk, that is just the general perception.

Got2b glued always worked best for me. I tried a ton of other products but nothing else kept my hair up.

Use Rusk products, they have been by far the best in my experience. They give your hair an actual natural looking hold instead of having it look like it's all hard and crusty, and you can style it different through out the day with it still holding very strong. Highly recomended.
