Customer Reviews:

Great Hold!

I love this product! It holds my hair perfectly in place all day long without feeling heavy or greasy.

Too Sticky

I purchased this product hoping for a strong hold but found it to be too sticky and difficult to work with. It also left a residue in my hair that was hard to wash out.

Long-Lasting Hold

This wax provides an extra hard hold that lasts all day and keeps my hair looking great. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a strong hold without the heavy feeling.

Decent Hold, But Strong Scent

The hold on this product is decent, but I was not a fan of the strong scent it had. It was overpowering and made me feel a bit nauseous throughout the day.

Doesn't Work for Thin Hair

I have thin hair and this product just didn't work for me. It made my hair look greasy and weighed down, even when I used only a small amount. I would not recommend it for those with thin hair.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about this product. While it did provide a decent hold, it also made my hair feel sticky and difficult to style. I may try it again, but I'm not sure yet.

Product Summary:

The Gatsby Perfect Hold Wax Extra Hard is a hairstyling wax known for its fresh, pleasant scent and ability to create a youthful, trendy look. Its packaging is designed to be visually appealing, standing out on store shelves.

This wax has a thick, clay-like texture, which makes it easy to mold and style hair. When applied, it becomes slightly sticky and tacky, providing a strong hold that endures throughout the day. However, the strength of the hold may vary depending on the amount used, and it might not be as robust as some other hair products.

It's particularly suitable for thin, fine hair and excels with short, straight styles, offering a natural hold and styling versatility. The wax is long-lasting, with a single container offering at least a month's worth of usage. It maintains hold for hair lengths up to 3.5 inches without leaving any sticky residue, and it washes out easily. Caution is advised to avoid excessive use, as this can lead to a shiny appearance and the product's hard, sticky nature could potentially pull out hair. The Gatsby Perfect Hold Wax Extra Hard is priced between $10 and $15.
