    Was curious, as i'v been using vo5 firm hold gel for awhile now but it makes it look kinda greasy.

    My friend has recently told me that he started using bryll cream putty or something like that and that it has the same effect as gel but makes it look more natural and less greasy.

    Was wondering if any of you guys could tell me what you use and your experiences with it.

    Fudge: hair putty or fat head
    Fish: fishfingers (never fails)

    all of these are pretty good alougth Fudge is expensive

    I use normal bryll cream gel.. used to use shockwaves but don't notice any difference really. I've tried wax before but would only use it on the odd occassion.. I find gel quicker for daily use.

    American Crew Fibre.

    For short hair, it really is the only solution.

    American crew fibre is the best thing to use so i've heard, i've not used that yet. But any matt styling putty is what i choose :). Currently using something called "urban".

    The one on the left for work (Fudge), the one on the right for going out (American Crew Fiber).

    I find that Fudge holds better when you're in a rush and don't have much time, and Fibre is better when you use it in combination with straighteners for the ultimate boyband look. :)

    Real men (southwesterners) use salty sea air and sun for the rugged windswept bleached look.

    I myself use a combination of tap water, Brylcreem and spittle.

    How do you lot use the Fibre stuff to best effect? I can never get any sort of lasting style and it doesn't really thicken my hair like it should. Tips?

    (Yes, I feel homogay).

    I feel unless I wash and blowdry/straighten my hair then the fibre stuff just doesn't have the effect I want.
