Simplicity and style in a Jar
on December 8, 2012
This hair treatment is not for people who want spikes, mowhawk, flat top ex. This hair treatment is made for combing your hair back (slicking) or if you want to part your hair. It will hold either one of these all day with a finger tip full. Maybe a bit more if you have allot of hair and want it to lay flatter.
1. You DO NOT need a hand full. A finger tip full should do fine.
2. It should be worked into damp hair not soaking wet because it works against the treatment and if you go dry it is to hard to get it into your hair. Notice I said into not onto. You want to rub the treatment on both your hands and run your hands vigorously through your hair. DO NOT just smush it ontop of your hair because it won't hold right otherwise.
3. This treatment DOES NOT wash out with shampoo. Unless you want to wash and rinse your hair 3 times at least. You need to use a hand soap or dish soap like dawn if you want to get it out in one go. But if you do one wash with regular shampoo once your hair will have some left in after so you just use a but less when you style.
The treatment smells good. It is not an overpowering smell more like a lotion or an after shave. It is something other people should smell when close to you not 10 feet away. This is something people never learn with body spray. I have had a few people ask me at grocery stores and at the movies what I was wearing. Most mould not believe until they smelled my hair that it was a hair treatment.
It's better than a gel or spray for the above mentioned hair styles because it does not get hard or crusty. Three flowers has a nice "semi gloss" shine to it as many older styled hair treatments. It is very Similar to "Axe shine Pomade" BUT the thee flowers has a more pleasant smell (Axe Pomade smells to strong like many of their products) and the Axe needs a bit more water before application because it tens to be a bit more WAX like than the three flowers. The three flowers may seem expensive but if you want to keep a simple clean hair style and want to use three flowers as your only styling product it will work just fine.
Note: this should be applied to freshly clean hair every time. Even if you use a regular shampoo that leaves some of the three flowers behind that does not matter. What matters is dirt, grit, flakes oils and other "bed head" symptoms will not be covered up by use of this treatment. In fact these symptoms will work against the treatment and make your hair look messy and a bit of a "mop top" as the old timers say
