I have spent lots of my life trying to find a good hair product that will just do what I want. I find it very frustrating when my hair just won't hold or stay where I want it.
I found this product in Tesco a few weeks ago and decided to give it a go and I'm over the moon with it - if I have to say anything negative - is that it's gives too much hold.
I thought I would try and categorise my thoughts so here goes:
The actual product is a rectangle-tin type shape. It opens to reveal the paste in one side and obviously just the lid in the other. The colour is a bright orange and looks great and does stand out on the shelf. The name 'urban' to me says street art, graffiti, cool designs and the tin does show this ... more so on the back and the front too.
The 'actual' Product
The product is a thick yellow-white paste and a little goes a long way. I take a small finger amount and rub into my hands and then apply to my hair and my hair is quite long at the moment. It smells good too - not a great smell but not a horrible smell either.
The product has a hold factor of 6 which I think is appropriate and I definitely agree with. My hair keeps its shape and style all day at work and I do move around alot and shake my head so it does get tested well.
I do think the product is quite expensive when it comes to hair products - in Tesco you will pay £7 per tin. I don't think it was on special so this is the normal price. I also at the time bought their other product (the blue tin) which has a stronger hold (hold factor 8) - believe me this one is very strong. So the two tins cost £14.
I love when a product pleases me ... who doesn't and I like to get what I pay for and this product gives me that! Yes it's £7 and a few years ago I would have thought I would be crazy to spend that much on a hair product but it does what it says on the tin! I'm very happy and it will hopefully last a long time! I've been using it for about a month now (5 days a week) and I've barely used any or so it seems.
Let me know in the comments below if you have ever used this product or if you want to suggest anything else that gives good hold - then let me know.
