Hey guys, I am checking out another DAX product today. However, I’m going with a less prevalent one. I am using DAX Hair Shaper this time. I contacted their GM Don when he was getting some hybrids made for me. I talked to him about this one, because I loved DAX Super Neat so much. And I decided to try it out once I found out they will only have it in the metal tin for a short while longer then it’s going in a plastic tub. I’m more of a tin kind of kid, and I try to avoid the plastic tubs if possible. I just like them better in my collection.
This one comes in their standard tin. However this one isn’t colored, it’s just stainless steel with some writing on it. I really dig it!! The writing on it is in red, fire engine red. This one also has the directions and a little blurb about the product on the side of the tin along with the name. And the ingredients and company info are on the bottom of this one as well.
Opening it up you’re met with a bright white product. At first glance it looks like a cream, looking closer it looks more like a paste. The white of this one isn’t quite as bright as the Lucky 13 cream, but it’s still really white, not an off white color. The scent of this one is a nice fresh smell. It smells like Vaseline lotion does to me. Or a fragrance free lotion.
Grabbing some out of the tin was a little different than I had expected. It was like a cream and a paste combined. It had the texture of a medium paste to it. Once I put the Shaper in my palms it had more of a cream texture to it. It didn’t soften up a whole lot, but it became closer to a cream.
Putting in my hair was a breeze! it went in just as easy as any cream I’ve used. It combed around nicely as well. It did kind of leave some small streaks where there was more of it in certain spots of my hair. They did comb right in with only a couple passes with my comb however. Really easy to comb in your hair, even with a fine toothed comb.
I was able to get some ok height with this stuff. I think it’s best as more of a low profile product though. It doesn’t make my hair puffy or give it too much volume which is nice. It wasn’t the best at taming the little hairs unfortunately. I seem to have a couple dozen that love to stick out around my hair line and part. This product did tame my cowlicks. That’s important to me when finding a regular use product, only because I have so many cowlicks that I need something to tame them all. And this stuff did that very well, despite it’s lighter texture.
Dax Hair Shaper holds nicely all day as well. It only broke down a little bit toward the right side of the front of my hair after the entire day. And this stuff doesn’t really harden up either which I love. I did wet comb the back, right side of my head and that one small area gummed up slightly, but it didn’t harden. I really liked how this one made my hair feel from start to finish. It also washes out of our hair with just water. So it’s great if you need something that comes out easily and isn’t greasy. The only thing I really wished this stuff did do was make my hair shiny, but this one didn’t have any shine to it. No big deal I can add a topper to it if I want.
I would definitely recommend grabbing some of this stuff!
Til the next one,
