    Well, first off if your hair smells you might have other concerns but conditioner takes care of that entirely. Really all shampoo does is strip the oils off your hair which are a naturally occurring and keep the hair healthy, I usually only use shampoo if I've been doing something athletic.

        Yea heard allot about hanz, even talked to one of their big promoters. Only thing I see people complain about them is the hold not being strong enough and that it doesn't last long. Definitely worth a try, pricey though

        If you've used ac (fiber) an alternative that I think works better is their di:fi line. Pink ones my fav, smells fruity though unfortunately. Stay away from Gatsby

        For pomades best bet is probably layrite

        Edit: Yea, probably the best pomades if that's what your looking for, use to get my cut at layrites shop actually. If your going to try out Hanz de fuko they offer a great sampling thing you can choose from

            If you want super hold that isn't going to go anywhere for an undercut, when I was styling my hair that way I used Layrite Superhold, and since in the summer months I commute by motorcycle (helmet/on off a couple times a day) I would mix with Layrite Supershine which gave it a bit more malleability

              I have thick hair and use a pomade by Imperial. It works very well and you can still run your fingers through your hair without getting them all sticky.

                same thing i use Imperial fiber pomade and have VERY thick hair. It works better for me than american crew fiber which i had tried previously. Highly recommend

                  Imperial is good one I forgot about. Although I had a bad experience with it. There was black stuff in it after a month ... thought it was something from my fingers so I put it on my hair. Turns out it was mold

                  Edit: Suavecito is very similar to layrite, except it smells bad (at least I think so). Its also cheaper but I still prefer layrite over the other. Also Good tip ian+

                    I believe that those who complain actually don't know how to use these kind of products. People should realize that the hold and the shape of the hair comes from the heat applied and not the product. Also you should always use a very small amount, otherwise hair become heavy and lose their hold.

                      I have thick, curly hair. I use Layrite sometimes but I've been meaning to try Suavecito on a friend's recommendation. Apparently water-based hair products work better with this hair type.

                        My hair started thinning a few years ago. I currently take a daily finasteride, but was wondering if anyone has any experience with products that will re-grow hair? I'm not interested in any surgical procedures, but was curious.

                          Went to my derm for this as I have some recession around my temples, my hair's still thick everywhere else.

                          She told me that Minoxidil only helps for the back/center part of the head and not the temples. So if you've thinned there, perhaps give that a shot.

                          Additionally, once you stop taking it the effects fade, much like finestride.

                          I'm waiting for that magic future pill that fixes everything because nothing else is worthwhile. Hope my follicles hold out

                            I'm in a similar situation in the front. I caught it in time to where it doesn't look bad but I'd like it a little thicker. I'm sure if there were a great solution we would have heard something by now. The last thing I want to do is go the route of "shave head, get buff, wear only rick."

                              Any recs for a good everyday styling product for medium hair length, kind of how young yohji has it In my profile pic. Been looking for one since my hairs kind of boring and just flops. Nothing too shiny/greasy

                                @ the 'shave head...' part. It's a viable move if all else fails. How else are you going to get away with more 'casual' Rick going into your 40s?
