I haven't been on here much over the last 4-6 months, because I've been busy studying for an awesome job, but I've run into a problem: my mohawk is roughly 20 inches tall now, and I'm having a very hard time getting it to stand up now. I can get it to stand up, but it takes 1-2 hours of work, and it doesn't stand up solidly; the spikes are very wobbly and tend to try to fall down MUCH sooner than when they were just an inch or 2 shorter. Basically from between inches 1 and 17 or 18, they would stand up NO PROB, but immediately after the 18 inch mark, the quality and longevity of the spikes has dropped exponentially within about 2 weeks, so I am kind of confused as to what the deal is. I am pondering some sort of external support at this point... some physical objects I can place within the spikes or on the outsides (that don't look hideous lol) to get them to stand like they used to. My hair is bleached blonde with some residual greenish-blue tones from a blue dye job quite some time ago.
Products I've been using are got2b freeze spray, and got2b glued. I know everyone has their preference as to which products they consider the "best" products, but these 2 products DO work because they have worked extremely well up until this point... now they are just not cutting it alone.
Any ideas for any sort of reinforcement? Any external objects to hold the spikes up or some other third product?
Thank ya kindly! ^_^
I used to use the Got2b Glued hair glue, my first hawk would fall down after about a day because the glue isnt strong enough to support its own weight, so the taller your hawk the less effective the glue will be. Try using the freeze spray without the help of any other product.
If that doesnt work have a barber trim the dead ends off. When I went 5 or 6 months without a trim my hawk would look more thin/gapy and wouldn't stay up for more than a few days.
Dude, have you ever had a fan?? I was just reading this, as I'm at like 11/12 inches now with my 'hawk, and I use got2bglued spray and then blowdry it (high heat, low blow) until it's dry, which was a perfect method, but now my amazing hairdryer packed up so I went out bought LOADS but they are all stronger tahn my old one, which is discontinued haha! And my hair is super thin so I think I'm screwed, as now when I do my hawk with another hairdryer, it's all like.. spiky? than fanned, so if you have any method which is good for you to do fanned, I'd really appreciative of your knowledge! Thanks :D MM xoxo
