Why people love it
  • Great hold without that "wet look"
  • Has a scent that people freak for
  • Doesn't leave any residue

It's a strong product, so it can be a little drying. You may want to consider extra conditioner with this product. 


There's a lot of pluses to this hair wax from Redken. Let's get the price out of the way first; it's more than reasonable. If you're on a budget and want a solid product, this should be on your list of products to try. You can also look at the hold and ability to restyle your look throughout the day. Both aspects of this wax make it a strong choice for just about every guy. And, yes, it also works on a variety of cuts and textures; you can make it work on a lot of different types of hair. Put all those aspects together and you'd be tempted to buy it for the entire household to use.

But, that's not all. This wax has a matte finish (which you might expect), but it's also super easy to wash out (which you probably didn't count on). It also adds texture to straight hair. All in all, you might think it's a perfect product... but it does have parabens in the ingredient list and the jury is still out on whether those are safe for guys to use. And, it can be a little more drying than some of the other waxes on this list. 

  • Hold and Control: You're going to get a decent amount of hold from this wax, but not so much that you should shape a pompadour with it. 
  • Ability to Restyle: Awesome! You'll be able to restyle your hair when you want. 
  • Texturing Ability: Expect more than average texturing ability with this hair wax. 
  • Shine Level: This has a matte finish all the way. But still, super attractive.
  • Flakes and Washability: This is perhaps the easiest hair wax to wash out of all the products on the list. 
  • Scent: You probably won't notice a scent with this wax; if you do, it's still unlikely to offend you or anyone else. 

Bottom Line: This is a solid choice for a lot of guys (and gals) and certainly affordable. It's easy to apply and it's even easier to wash out. If it weren't for the parabens or that it's a little drying, we would rate it even higher.
