I should really confirm that this is not a review, but rather a firm warning for anyone who is considering using Dax Wax.
Most guys have tried Dax Wax products at some stage of their lives, and I was no different. I picked up a tin of this stuff at my local supermarket and gave it a try a few years back.
Once moulded into my hair, this wax actually felt pretty ok. Due to its texture, my hair felt rather thick and it held my style into place easily, all day long. The only problem was, the next morning provided me with two problems...
I found this stuff an absolute nightmare to wash out of my hair. The gunky wax had embedded itself in my locks, making it extremely difficult to wash out. I had to resort to using Fairy washing up liquid to get this wax out of my hair, and even that wasn't easy!
The second problem I faced was staring right up at me from my bath tub. The amount of hair I lost trying to get this stuff washed out was scary. I know much of the hair lost in the bath was forced through vigorous washing, but even so, for a man who's going bald already, this really didn't help matters.
So, I ditched Dax Wax and have since elected much softer matte textured clays that aren't as thick, wash out easily and don't have damaging effects on the hair.
If you're a sufferer of hair loss then you should definitely steer well clear of Dax Wax (the red tin at least), as the last thing you'll want is for your hair loss process to speed up!
