I prefer not using anything on my hair except a little coconut oil, but every once in a while I need some style power to keep my hair straight fly. I've tried the Crew Pomades and Aveda Waxes, but to be honest, they all had issues in some way or another. Most of styling waxes are un-natural and so they end up clogging your pores and even the Aveda products had some alcohol or chemical that made my forehead breakout. Other natural/organic styling gels I've found had great ingredients, but when it came to holding power, they totally failed.
What to do what to do?
About 2 months ago I found the Giovanni Natural Hair Care line and was amazed at 1) their ingredient quality (tons of organic stuff) and 2) its styling/holding ability. My forehead hasn't broken out either! Since then I've been totally pimping the product and telling all of my buddies about it. So far their success has been similar to mine.
If you are having similar issues with your styling wax or gel, I highly recommend check out the Giovanni line - specifically the Magnetic Force Styling Wax.
A lot of stores sell it online, but you can also find it at almost all Whole Foods now too.
