Waxes tend to offer a pliable hold, but sometimes you want that PLUS a firm hold that makes others cry over their own styling products. If that's what you're after, this is the wax you want.

And it's never ever greasy looking. No really, people love that it's matte, without being crunchy, and firm, yet flexible.

At the same time, it adds a fair amount of volume and texture (thanks to the ingredients in the mix).

Now we should let you know that it's better at keeping flat hair up than wild hair down. But you can't have everything all the time, can you?

Though the price is on the high side, we think this is worth it across the board - especially if you've been let down by other waxes in the past.

Notable ingredients: There's no drying alcohol in this foruma, but you will find parabens. On the plus side, all that good hold comes from the beeswax (which is also an antioxident). There's also cera caranauba to thicken and soften your hair.

Hold and control: We love, love, love the firm hold you're going to get with this - and it's one that's never greasy or sticky. It also doesn't harden; you get a pliable hold here.

Shine level: You'll get something between a totally matte finish to a natural gloss, depending on the water in your hair when applied.

Texture and fragrance: It's a very creamy wax - so much so that you might be concerned about its holding power. Don't be. And as for the scent, it's clean and subtle.

Application: Some users prefer putting it in dry hair to add a lot of texture. Others like it better in damp hair, followed by a hair dryer to add some volume. Either way, a little goes a long way and you will have the ability to restyle it during the day, without sacrificng the hold and volume.

Flakes and washability: For as firm as the hold is, you won't get any residue or flakes with this wax. It also washes out immediately, which always makes your life easier.

Sizes and pricing: You don't have a lot of options here; there's just a 1.7 oz container that sells for $14. That's not the cheapest and it also doesn't come with Prime, but at least the shipping is free.
