I purchased this product in hopes of replacing the Artec Textureline Material product that had been discontinued. I was dissapointed. While this product bills itself as a wax, it's more like a cream. I found I had to use much more product in my hair, and it only worked well when my hair is very damp. I use it to still my short hair cut and add texture/molds to it. Nothing fancy, just keeping my short, thick hair from sticking out.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A daily wash for my husband (although I did try it to see if it tingled like his American Crew tea tree, which feels awesome). He loves my Redkin All Soft but he wanted a 'manly' version for himself and I wanted him to stop using all of my shampoo/conditioner, so he tried this. Sales clerk said her husband loved this product and that it tingles the scalp. Found out that the sales clerk either A. Doesn't know her product or B. Will say anything to make a sale. As always, Redkin still made a great product, but was not what we were looking for. It misses the tingle factor. Based on the fact that it was the reps fault we were unhappy, I'm still rating this as a 'would recommend'.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
