1) Setting Power of hair waxes
Generally, there are soft waxes and hard waxes. Soft waxes is for creating light, soft styles. It sets on the hair well. and lets the wind ride your hair. On the other hand, hard wax holds the hair style in place firmly.
2) Texture of the hair waxes
Beside Setting Power, hair waxes can be separated into textures of fiber, matte of cream.

・Suitable for thick hair, bristle-like hair
Very fine fiber is used in Fiber-type waxes, which makes it easy to use on hair. Thus the type is for anyone who is not good at styling, or for anyone who wants lots of control in styling.
However, the fiber-types contains lots of oil, making the wax heavy. Should it be used on thin or soft hair, the hairstyle will crumble from the weight of the hair wax. Therefore use on thick hair or firm textured hair is recommended.
★ Matte Type

The cream type hair waxes exist in between the fiber types and the matte types. These do not have the weight of fiber type hair waxes, while providing some shine to the hair. They are also suitable for a wide variety of hairstyles.
