I just started seeing this being sold around Soompi, and I wanted to know if it's really as good as some people say :]

Just share your opinions and experiences. Which one did you use? Loose shuffle [orange], air rise [green], etc. What length hair do you have, and how well did this product work? Any styling tips would be welcome too ^_________^

    I bought Air Rise (Green) when it first hit the market and I absolutely love it.
    It's very versatile and you can re-mold it anytime you want.
    A little dab is enough for a large area.

    It doesn't flake and it isn't residue-y and it's nice and matte.
    Sleeping with it wake up to some funky styles for sure.

    My brother used it and he looks good =D

    He looked like those fobby korean/chinese/japanese boys with nicee hair haha

    Yea, a little bit is enough, you don't need to smother like tons of gel in your hair which when messed around with it'll flake and feel gross image

    It's nice and light but holds perfectly =)

    My friend bought the whole set while she was in HK image
    She used Loose Shuffle and it looked really natural (:
    I wanted one but she told me it was for guys & so she gave hers away..... o_o

    -edit 12 May 2008-
    I currently use Grunge Matte. Very light & I love the texture... it smells good as well (:

    I just ordered some yesterday from a Soompier
    Green Air Rise ^____^V
    This one seems to be really popular :0
    I'm getting my hair cut to around.. chin length? And layered,
    so I hope it'll give me a funky new look x]

    aaaand I think girls can use this stuff too.
    Just as long as their hair isn't past shoulder length..?

    I'm using Air Rise right now and it works realllllllllllly well. Doesn't feel nasty since a little dab is good enough and it holds pretty well, even in the wind =o.

    ^ If your hair is layered, then I'm guessing you could probably use it on the upper section of your hair. Make it all puffy and light at the top. Just what I think ^_____^;; Someone correct me if I'm wrong ><;;

    did anyone buy in america? there is this japenese market where i bought my reg. gat. wax but i havent been there for a while and was wondering if they carry it~

  • Lanie_Lanie_ Posts: 132Member
    Mmm... I have the blue one lying around somewhere, I don't use it much though. I dont really put naything on my hair actually, just wash it and that's pretty much all.

    can girls use this? cus i thought it was only for guys. does anyone have a pic of them using it and is a girl?
  • T.LUUT.LUU 5:13 heaven. San Jose, CA(:Posts: 1,743Friend of Soompi


    ^ I'm pretty sure that girls can use it too.
    It was made for guys, but it's just a hair wax, so why can't girls use it too? ^^;;
    I think for us girls instead of using the wax to spike our hair or whatever
    we could use it to give our hair the messy but casual look?

    yay!! I just got my Gatsby today in Air Rise ^_____^
    It works really well. I used it to make little tendrils at the bottoms of my hair
    and to volumized my hair.
    I used a little more than a pea sized amount, and it held just fine.
    I'll probably take pictures later! :]

    yep i use this and love it image
    I have the green air rise one. You only need a tiny bit and it like keeps everything up for most of the day, and even if your hair like does become a bit flattened then just using your hands to fluff it back up is all it takes to make it look good again, no need to like add more. Also even tho i'm a girl, i think it holds pretty well, I have long hair but the top part is cut shorter so i can spooff it up and all and Gatsby works wonders image
    Seeing i'm going back to australia i bought myself a couple more to share with my brother.
