      The price seemed a little steep for hair goo, but I have been eyeing it up for a while. I am glad I did because it is amazing! It is an odd texture. It sticks to you finger but wants to ooze back into the container. A little bit on my finger and rubbed between my hands is enough for my hair (a pixie cut) and lasts all day.

                  I buy this all the time. I opened it to use it and it was all over the cap. There was no extra lid on the top of the product like other times . I brought 2 of them and the other one had the lid on the top of the product. . This product is good I love it but it is also expensive and half of it was in the cover .it was a mess.

                  Thanks

                          • Q:

                            My hair is really short and styling products like this tend to make my hair go flat, or look greasy. Is this product kind of light weight so that my hair won't do either of the things stated above? I need something that will give me that messy hair look without that greasy hair look. I also don't want it to weigh down my hair so it keeps some volume.

                              Yes, it sounds like the Texturzing Taffy would be perfect for you! You will put a small amount in your hand, emulsify it and then apply to your hair. I typically recommend applying to dry hair.

                              A:

                              The Texturizing Taffy is great for getting the "messy" look. This product has as hold index of 17, but is also moveable if you want to change up the style half way through your day. Typically it is worn in shorter hair, but also used in long hair to tame fly aways, and for smoothing out hair for updos. If you are looking for lift and hold, I would use the Root Lifting Spray, it goes on damp hair, and then style as normal. Finish your look with the Award Winning Volume Spray 25. This product has a hold index of 25, it will keep your hair from going flat all day. The greatest thing about the Volume Spray 25 is that even though it has an amazing hold, it is not sticky, or hard. You can brush the style out right after and you would never know you had hairspray on.

                            Would this be the right product to try on longer, somewhat wavy layers? I am looking for a product to help get that separated, "piecey" look. My hair is kinda thin, but products usually help it hold a curl well!

                            I have a freshly permed curly bob. I'm looking for a finishing styling product that will help to hold my hair in place AFTER I have dried it with a diffuser. Basically, I need a finishing styling product to help place the hair and define it and a spray to keep it there. Would this work, or what would you recommend?

                              The Texturizing Taffy is great for getting the "messy" look. This product has as hold index of 17, but is also moveable if you want to change up the style half way through your day. Typically it is worn in shorter hair, but also used in long hair to tame fly aways, and for smoothing out hair for updos. If you are looking for lift and hold, I would use the Root Lifting Spray, it goes on damp hair, and then style as normal. Finish your look with the Award Winning Volume Spray 25. This product has a hold index of 25, it will keep your hair from going flat all day. The greatest thing about the Volume Spray 25 is that even though it has an amazing hold, it is not sticky, or hard. You can brush the style out right after and you would never know you had hairspray on.

                            Can you use this on damp hair and then on your hair when it is dry? I noticed my hair looked great the other day and I was wondering if I was using too much of the product. Can you also blow dry your damp hair after putting this in your hair? I have chin length natural curly hair...which gives you more volume. Damp hair , dry hair or both? I really love it!!

                              Yes, the Texturizing Taffy can be used on damp or dry hair. Yes, you can blow-dry your hair after applying the Texturizing Taffy. You can use it whichever way works best for your hair type.

                            what's the difference in use and results between the Platinum Texturizing Taffy 13 vs the Platinum Working Wax 15?

                            I have thin hair cut to chin length (bob), very thin at the crown and thick at the back of my head. Looking for volume, texture and thickness. Also that won't weigh hair down.

                              Working Wax 15 Hold Index: 15
                              Medium, flexible hold for texture and definition
                              Malleable formula allow for easy use and all-day style modification
                              Provides ultra-matte finish

                              For your hair type, I would suggest the Texture Wax, Thickening Glaze, and The Texture Powder.

                              Hold Index: 13
                              For flexible styling without stiffness

                              Yes, you can use with hot rollers, be advised this product is not a heat protectant.

                              Yes, it will hold your curl very well.

                              I would also suggest Hot Spray 20, it is a heat protect, and has a hold index of 20.
