Birchbox Breakdown

This lightweight wax smooths away frizz and flyaways, adds soft hold to our style, and leaves our hair with a glossy, luminescent shine. The wax defines strands and adds texture as essential fatty acids nourish and hydrate our hair. But our very favorite part may just be the formula’s oh-so-subtle shimmer—to let our strands, and our style, truly shine.

How to Use

Emulsify a small amount of product between your fingers, then smooth or comb it through dry hair. Apply a small amount to your hairline, bangs, or ends for extra shine and hold.

Use every day

I've been using this product for years through my hair salon and I'm so excited it is on now! This is one of the best, most pliable hair pomades/styler I've ever used. You put a small amount on your hands, warm it up, and then run through your hair. It gives my hair that perfect piece-y texture and keeps everything in place. It actually does shimmer!

Glossy shiny goodness

I love S.U. products. I bought this on a whim. It goes on thick and rather sticky, but it dries and leaves the hair so glossy and shiny. In the hot Alabama humid weather, it faired well and kept my ends looking shiny and sealed. I can't wait to try it with a fishtail braid. It's pricey for a small tube, so I may wait for a coupon before purchasing again. Overall, I give it all 5 stars--which I rarely do. By the way, this product has silvery fine glitter in it, but the doesn't stay in long, but I'm fine with that. Lastly, the smell: very light and hint of cherry blossoms. Not overwhelming at all. Just clean and lovely.

SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Touch of Gloss

While I wanted to love this, the sample size I received did not give me enough product to give it a good try. Pleasant fragrance, worked fairly well to tame the frizz in my hair.

Not for me

I was really looking forward to trying this product, however it is too heavy and sticky to use. I've tried several times and found that it's sole purpose for my hair is to glue it downing humid days, where sticky is better than frizzy.
