So I have extremely fine hair, but I have a lot of it. I also like to have a more structured style as opposed to a relaxed one due to my profession. Because of this, I struggle to find a product that will provide the hold I need without weighing my hair down or making it extremely oily.
I have tried numerous products, including various clays, puttys, waxes and creams, but have not been able to achieve the style I want on a consistent basis, especially towards the latter end of my haircut cycle (when it's longer, my hair tends to stick out and becomes very difficult to control). I recently purchased Pre Game and have been extremely impressed by the results so far. For starters, the scent is great and ranks in the top 3 scents of the products I've tried. The scoop is paste-like as you would expect from a wax paste and, although you can feel the tack when breaking it down in your hands, the application is surprisingly effortless at first. The tack does become present as you continue towards your intended style, but this is representative of the hold the product will achieve. My favorite thing about the product is that it gives a slight natural shine shortly after application, which I like for the style I'm going for. The initial shine does fade away as time passes and becomes more matte, but I tend to spray a small amount of hairspray to my finished style to maintain the slight shine and to prevent fly-aways. In summary, I highly recommend this product for those with all hair types who are looking for a high-hold and extremely pliable product and who want a product that will create whatever style you are wanting to achieve.
This makes my fine textured hair look thick and full! The hold is unbelievably strong and smell is just heaven in a can.
Day two of using PRE GAME and I can honestly say it’s my new favorite product! The smell is amazing (all SalonGuy products have a great scent!). I also use the Pure shampoo and conditioner. Stephen, your products are amazing, can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2019!
Great hold that still has manageability throughout the day. I’ve used BluMaan and Pete&Pedro. So far this is my go to.
Weightless volume and insane good hold. And you'll love that scent. Best smelling product I've ever used! Perfectly matte product too! It's not to dry. But it looks great matte. Definitely one of my favourites!
I love it! There isn’t anything out on the market that can hold a candle to your Pre Game. Other products I was using my hair would fall. I love the 25 spray. I can’t live without it now. It’s awesome! ❤️
Amazing product! I have thick wavy’ish hair. I put a little for pre style and a little to finish. Hair was perfect all day, and even next day.
I don't use this term very often, for anything, but this is a game change....excellent product!!!
Really liking Pre-Game. I’ve used Clutch, XL, and countless other clays and matte pastes, and none have been near as versatile as this. While I’m still testing and using in different scenarios (dry hair, etc.), what I’ve seen thus far has been fantastic; this stuff is STELLAR. It is the best stuff I’ve used on damp hair yet (if you’re one of those who wonder what the purpose of damp hair usage is, it gives a nice piece-y look, without the wet look). Scoops and applies smoothly, strong hold and longevity (I was able to get almost two complete days without re-application or much fall, if at all), and washes out very easily. Banana isn’t my favorite smell, but it’s not bad; so far, LOVE IT, and will update this post as I continue to use it.
Amazing hold, amazing finish, and a great smell too. Definitely my go to product.
I love it I sell it in my barbershop and clients love that it’s 2 products in one starts off wet and strong like gel and within 3 hours it turns into a very dry matte model look!!! And the smell is incredible!!!!
Incredible product for those with thick and coarse hair thats difficult to style and tame. First impressions are that it instantly gives great texture and volume and the hold is really strong. finish was natural/matte in my hair and it remained reworkable and present in my hair, which is a plus for me since my thick coarse hair can sometimes just absorb/eat up lighter products, making my hair look okay at first but not last all day. the consistency is quite unique and almost gum like, but it scoops out really easily. you can feel some grip when you breakdown/emulsify it in your hands as well as apply it into you hair but once its in there and set, it doesn't feel sticky but still gives a high long lasting hold. definitely worth a try for everybody but especially those with thick hair!
Amazing product ! Always have a difficult time finding something that really styles my hair being as thick as it is. I highly recommend this, and the banana fragrance is truly unique!
