All in all, I have found Sponge Wax to be a mixed experience. For comparison, I would say it's most like American Crew Fiber. First off, the quality of the product is extremely high; you really feel like it's an expensive product and it feels and looks amazing in your hair. It is very voluminous, which is not a good thing for me since I have naturally voluminous hair, but could certainly work for people with flatter and lighter hair. It adds a nice amount of texture and doesn't add a lot of weight to your hair. The one thing is that it really is far from a high hold product. I would call this medium hold at the most, maybe even low hold. For my long fringe it does not hold anything in place throughout the day. Don't go for this if you want high hold, but do go for it if you want a product that feels great and adds texture and volume without shine.
