I have always had an issue with styling my very long , thick hair and recently discovered that I actually suit curls more than I do having my usual straight hair .
The worry for me though is that when I do style my hair I tend to get a heavy weight and still a frizzy finish and with using heated curlers to get that perfect curl, it often leaves my hair looking less dull than it had when I had washed it , taking away that gorgeous healthy looking shine.
I have always used a shine spray for my finish to help with this issue but it can be costly and I simply have not got the pounds at the moment with being pregnant as every penny is needed.
I remember reading a fellow bloggers post regarding this product and although he was a male blogger it still appealed to me as my hair is very course so I usually find men's hair styling products work best for my hair when it comes to gels, mousse and wax.
I have actually been using this for around three weeks now and I did post a picture on Instagram of my curls and the finish was fantastic and I for one was very impressed .
I love how adorable and handy the small tub is but a larger tub is available and you can pick these up from various leading stores .
Cost - £4.65
Available from Superdrug
What they say about their product-
Black & White is a versatile styling wax that allows you to mould, sculp and create texture.
Black & White Hair Pomade adds shine and is great for taming thick hair, styling choppy bobs or mohawks, and gives a long-lasting hold.
PETROLATUM, SYNTHETIC WAX, ZINC OXIDE, AMYL CINNAMOL, CITRAL, CITRONELLOL, GERANIOL, HYDROXYCITRONELLAL, LINALOOL, LIMONENE, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE)
It seems this product is suitable for both male and female and with its gorgeous coconut scent it makes it even more delightful to have in your hair as the scent lasts all day long , I have even found myself opening up the tub just to have a whiff for those days I am not wearing it .
When I first took a look at the texture of this I found it looked very hard and Vaseline like but on digging in the finger to take some from the tub it seemed to warm to my hand and to be fare I was rather scared that this was going to make my newly cleaned hair look very greasy .
The reality was that it actually blended very well into my hair and in fact added the moisture my dry hair needed without making it look overly shiny and not at all greasy.
I found it made application easier by slightly spritzing my hair with water to leave it slightly damp , I found it hard to work through when applied to dry hair .
Although I have very long, thick hair I only needed a small amount, about the size of a 10 pence piece which was enough to get through my full length.
He is the finish to my curls .
I also used this on my straight look.
I have tried everything to get that iron straight hair and even my straighteners could not manage it . I achieved the following look by adding a small amount to my hair after towel drying , then styling straight from washing .
It was the first time I can remember that I got a flat straight look .
I found that wearing this product in my hair left my curls and straight hair looking styled all day.
The product was pliable and gave a fantastic hold to both styles and the one thing other than keeping the frizz and look together I was most impressed with was how it gave my hair that healthy looking shine .
What hair styling product are you using at the moment (if any) ?

I think the curl look is great and this product seems to have given your hair a crispness and sharpness.

I like the sound of this wax. Did you find it heavy? My curls drop out quite quickly so I'd worry that it would weight them down

I haven't used this brand but I have tried a serum from another brand and it left my hair heavy, dull and greasy, This sounds like a great product will need to give it a try as my hair needs a little oomph

I have to admit I normally stay away from hair products as I never seem to get usage right, this seems to have worked wonders for you though.

Wow I never would have thought of using mens products on longer hair (although I guess guys can have longer hair too!)
