“Whats the Meaning of Better”

published 02/10/2002

It works and smells good

You need patience to be successful

How was your first experience? First experience in alcohol, in sex, first experience at marriage perhaps? or your first experience in anything, how was it? My first experience in using this Wella product was pure embarrassment! Why??? While me and Emily was at one of my mates house about a week...

“Something for bushes”

Style hold

Can get greasy

VO5 style wax has changed the way that I style my hair. I have very thick dark hair which is a nightmare to look after when it gets too long. Every time I wash my hair it bushes like a fuzz and looks ridiculous. Having used gel and mousse in the past I was loathe to try wax. Having tried VO5 I...

“Hold those Dreadlocks”

published 07/02/2001

works better tahn any other wax

It still takes ages to wax them all

It's not often that i have opinions on haircare products but i have had to start using this stuff so i thought i would give it a go. This isn't going to be useful for too many people but this is the ideal stuff for holding your dreadlocks in. Once you have been through the agony of getting them...

“Hair wax that works!”

published 17/11/2010

works well, does the job

hands may be greasy afterwards

V05 styling wax I don’t use many hair care products as I don’t have the time to spend grooming myself anymore but when I do go out and I want to make an effort I do like to make sure that I have all of the best products to help create the look I’m after. I have tried various kinds of styling wax...

stays in place, lasts a long time

DANDRUFF!

No, the answer isn't the juices of a virile man, and yes that was just a cheap sexual pun, but it seems to get people to read opinions so it was worth a try! Now, onto VO5 styling wax..well actually I'm writing about the new "texturising gum" but there didn't seem to be a category for that!! I...

“what's happened to the price”

published 19/02/2001

excellent all round product

unfortunate price increase

I have fairly short hair which I like to style front down and the back up for a little volume and separate, alot like Posh Spice's old style. To create this volume and separation along with other products I rely on styling wax as I find that hairspray tends to stick it all together in one clump...

“Sleek and Stylish!”

published 22/07/2000

Tames fly-away hair

Need to go easy on it!

I was very wary of using styling wax for the first time, as I had visions of a greaseball hair do that looked as though it needed a good wash! I think that could well happen if you aren't careful, you really need to be very careful not to use too much. However, it is amazing for taming fly-away...

“no bad at all”

published 22/07/2000

lasts forever

This wax wasnt bad at all, not the best mind you, but ok all the same. You really only need a little tiny bit. I even found it better if you put a little on you hand and add a drop or two of water and then evenly put it through your hair. I use it because my hair is curly and can sometimes get a...

Can't wash it out, trashes your hair

Have you ever wondered why ducks have water proof feathers? Probably because some manic teenager has attacked them with VO5 Styling wax. This stuff is terrible. Apart from the fact that you can't get it out of your hair, like ever and the fact when you finally have surgery to get it out it leaves...

“Spiky”

published 28/08/2000

Easy to use

This is the best styling wax i have found to date. I was looking for something that would help keep short hair spiky and this did it really well. I found that you only need to use it once and it will last all day giving you the perfect bed head look. It doesn't look greasy when done and was...

“the facts about wax”

long lasting hold

none

Alberto VO5 styling wax is a fantastic product. I have used many brands and have found that this product is by far the best value for money. Where i live, in Guernsey, it costs 4 pounds a pot. What makes this product unique from the other brands is that it will last longer for the simple reason...

right amount=perfection

too much = grease

I'm only going to go on what my boyfriends says about this as he regularly uses it: Well, it does make his hair nice and shiny, adn looks like it's in good condition. Howetehr, it seems that if you put 1ml too muc on then it turns from shiny;to greasy. This is defintatly not a good sine. Also it...

“its not so great”

published 22/02/2001

fairly good hold

not a ncie feel

I wasn't so impressed with this that I would buy it again without experimenting ith others first. I guess it's ok, as a wax it has fairly good hold and if you only use a tiny bit it's not too greasy. However, you do have to use only a tiny bit because the greasiness is quite high and if you're...

Can style hair anyway you like

Very thick, doesn't wash out easily

I've been using VO5 styling wax for a while as I've got short hair and its good for that "bed head" look. It comes in a small pot clearly labelled with the product name and instructions. You use only about a finger tip and rub it between your hands to warm it up, as was goes a lot further when...
