My Perfect Hair Wax: A Panic-Buying Story

Many guys will agree with me on this. Finding the perfect hair wax for our hair is not easy.

Our hairs- though made of dead skin cells- have proven to be one of the “vainest” parts of the human body and a source of a gazillion of ideas and inspirations for the creation of the many hair products such as shampoos, conditioners, hair styling aids, accessories and etc.

Pardon the vanity.
Life without hair is unimaginable. Literally, we’ll be able to dissolve half of the products being sold in the hair or beauty gondolas of supermarkets and groceries when that happens. And then the hundreds and hundreds of beauty parlors sprouting here and everywhere in Manila...

As I was saying. It’s not easy to find the perfect hair wax. It took me years, literally, after finding the “perfect” hair wax that I want for my hair. Here’s how it looks.

Tadaa! The perfect hair wax. 

I found it when I was in my first job. It was introduced to me by a hairstylist working for a hair salon I only visited once or twice in my entire life. That time, I was on a lookout for the “right” hair salon for me. And though the salon didn’t become the “right one" for it’s too far from home but the hair wax?! 

It's the one.

After some time, I lost contact with the hairstylist. And I know that even though I decide to see him, he won't let me buy in bulk since he's just selling the wax discreetly. And then one fateful day-

I found the magical hair wax lying beautifully in one of the gondolas in Watson’s in SM City Sta. Mesa!

As if panic-buying, I bought three instantly.

The magic three.

Till’ now I still don’t know the exact brand name of the hair wax. (Though from that picture above, you can say it's "Lightness" but believe me... It's plainly labeled as "hair wax" in the gondola.) The keeper from Watson’s said it’s manufactured by Shine Moist. (Anyone familiar with this brand?) Unlike other hair waxes, this one’s not sticky and very easy to rinse. It makes the hair easier to style and gives it a little shine boost.

It looks like gel but the packaging says it's hair wax. So, hair wax.

One jar just costs around PhP54.75. It’s the perfect  hair wax for me!
