Here is my next product review installment. These products come from Hawleywoods and the product line is called Layrite, one of the first new products formulated to get the old look. The Hawleywoods website does a great job in providing information and a map for the closest product carrier in your area or you can order online. Layrite’s products are formulated to work together for the best results.
The first step is Layrite Grooming Spray. Buy your own bottle or steal it from your boyfriend because it is awesome. Their grooming spray is a wet styling spray, much the same way we use styling creme or setting lotion before we dry our hair. Spray a descent amount of it in towel dried hair and dry hair as you normally would.I like it for men or women. The scent is clean and only slightly masculine, but once you apply your pomade or spray in your hairspray and put on your Haydria perfume, no one will be the wiser. Haydria has now moved to Etsy by the way. It gives a tremendous amount of volume and shine and after you are done spraying and rubbing it through your hair it miraculously leaves no sticky residue on your hands. I tried it on one of my mannequins for a blow-out and I don’t think Miss Suzie-Kin has ever had such a voluminous hairstyle which is a great start for a full pompadour.
One more great use I found for us girls…heat styling. Just playing around to see what it could do, I found that it is great with hot rollers, hot sticks, and curling irons. With hot rollers it offered a tremendous amount of body and shine and hold to a hot roller set I did on one of my mannequin heads. To test it more, I did one of the hot rollers without any spray. That curl was lifeless and limp compared to the rollers I did with the spray. This is getting added to my permanent kit.
You apply an ample amount for a men’s style, which is determined by the hair you are working on and the texture and hold you need. It is best to start small, like a half a tablespoon and work your way up, rubbing it in your hands to get it more pliable, although it is already pretty pliable out of the jar.The original is great for fine men’s hair and shorter medium thickness men’s hairstyles. It holds well.
What is amazing is how clear they both are and they both look like gel, but they don’t leave that really sticky gel film that is down right painful to the person you are trying to apply it to. They don’t dry, so you can just keep on combing until it reaches the form you want.
