Fudge Matte Hed – The Real Alternative to Gatsby Moving Rubber

So it happened, I ran out of Gatsby & Samourai! I forgot to to order my Gatsby from Ebay and my friends from Hong Kong couldn’t ship some over in time. I thought, there’s nothing round this part of the world that can come close to Grey Gatsby or Samourai and the first few products i bought proved me right.

I first bought some Tigi & Vo5, the Tigi had too much gloss, too little hold and Vo5 had the matte look but the hold was quite feeble. Another thing with the Vo5 is that the product turns into these big white chunks when I rubbed the product after styling which was a bit weird.

Just as when I was about to give up hope on all styling products this side of the world my “Knight in Shining Armour” came along! Fudge Matte Hed looks like a tube of Aquafresh but it is definitely the solution to get that matte/ natural look! First of all it has a hold factor of 9 out of 15 but that is more than enough to maintain your style throughout the day. The paste isn’t too thick so it is simple to spread the product evenly through your hair.  Overall, Fudge Matte Hed does the job brilliantly but Gatsby & Samourai are still sitting pretty at the top of my list of hair styling products.

Nerd Tips

  1. Blow dry your hair into the style you want
  2. Pump out about an inch of Matte Hed onto your hand
  3. Rub you hands together and make sure there is an even distribution
  4. Lightly run your hands through your hair (do not touch your scalp but make sure you add product to the back and sides)
  5. Twist and pull sections of hair you wish to define and also the focal points of your haircut (You can touch you scalp now!)
  6. If you require more hold, lightly apply some hairspray to those trouble spots!
