I like to use a texturising wax when my hair is shorter, to help give it a little body. I thought this would be perfect, especially as it’s particularly marketed as a wax for short hair. But unless I’m using it incorrectly, I’m just not seeing what the majority of other reviewers here are.The consistency of this wax is really off-putting. It’s very thick, a bit sticky and has an oiliness that I totally wasn’t expecting. I have to use the smallest amount – we’re talking no bigger than a single pea – on my chin length, inverted bob, as any more than that and my hair ends up looking like a greasy mess.I’m not a fan of the scent either. It has the scent of beeswax, obviously, but there’s an underlying sweetness that always puts me in mind of artificially scented vanilla candles. It’s not a scent I find attractive and it’s certainly not one I want my hair (and subsequently me) smelling of all day.At £5.50 for 50ml, I personally think this expensive for a product that doesn’t do much more than make my clean hair look greasy. As a result, I don’t find myself reaching for this very often and the times I have done, I’m quickly reminded of why I don’t! I doubt I’ll finish the tub I currently have and I certainly won’t be tempted to repurchase it either. Disappointing.

After consulting the reviews here I decided to go with this wax from the Body Shop and so glad I did. It has a very good texture, washed cleanly from hands, wonderful fragrance, easy to apply to hair and only use a small amount, and it brushed out easily.

I have fine hair in a boy-cut style and love this wax. I like playing around with hair products for my short hair and currently have about 5 or 6 on my sink, but I keep coming back to this one. While I still have various amounts of my American Crew and Garnier left, I am about to crack open a new tub of the Body Shop beeswax.Just the smallest bit rubbed between my palms gives my hair texture and shine. The shine is probably the best part -- so, so shiny! Really causes a great reflection off highlights. Smells very nice, comes in a handy palm-sized plastic tub and the 50ml will last about 3-4 months of daily use on short hair. As others have warned, just use a little at first or things go from great to greasy very quickly. Anyway, I love this. It's pretty cheap at £5 a tub and often cheaper with Body shop discounts.

I would not normally have purchased this, but I had a voucher for The Body Shop and since having my hair cut into a pixie a few months ago have been on the lookout for good styling products. This wax is very thick in consistency and quite oily, you only need a tiny amount otherwise it has a tendency to make my fine hair look a little greasy. I apply it once I've blow dried my hair just to add some shine, although I often have to use a separate product to give my hair any hold. UPDATE: had my curly, fine hair cut into a pixie again and found that this is just so greasy on my hair, if not washed every day. I also found myself getting scalp acne it was so oily!

This is one of my favourite styling products. I have medium length, baby-fine hair, and an extremely sensitive scalp, but this doesn't irritate it at all. I use just a tiny bit of the wax throughout my damp hair and blow it dry - it leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny and not greasy. It has a creamy texture and seems more like a paste than a wax - like solid coconut oil. The scent isn't noticeable on my hair, and is hard to describe: like tea, a bit if honey, and something tropical, but it isn't floral or perfumey, so it's fine for scent-free workplaces and men can use it too. The container is travel-friendly - it's just big enough to hold the product, so you don't have a giant container with a tiny bit of wax inside and there is an interior cap to seal in the contents in case it gets packed around in hot weather and melts. (I just got it before Christmas and it's January in Canada, so I have no idea how it actually responds in hot weather, but it is very creamy for a wax). This wax is well worth trying, especially if you like minimal ingredients and have a sensitive scalp.

This stuff is great. Smells good - like tea. Will buy again even though I really miss The Body Shop of the past. I only went to purchase this based on the reviews here and quickly realized why I haven't been in years.

This stuff is absolutely divine! I recently got a shaggy shoulder length bob and this product is a perfect match for my new 'do. It is really easy to work with, it's not greasy and it's not too tacky. I paid $8. for 2oz, which I imagine will last a long time. I also love that it comes in a TSA approved size. The scent is heavenly too! This is a holy grail for me!!

Wow, wow, wow!!! THIS is what I've been looking for!!! I recently got a choppy bob, and nothing was helping me get the look I want. Tried Crew Fiber, Redken Paste, Fudge, Kenra Clear Paste, Aquage Gelade ...all had at least one nice quality, but none was the total package. THIS IS! A tiny bit warmed in the hands, and your hair gets instantly smoothed (bye-bye baby hairs!), has a nice natural looking shine (not oily looking), and the white flakes I had from the prior day's product buildup are now invisible!!! If you're looking for the right wax...GET THIS! I don't have a Body Shop by me, so I ordered from amazon..and I will continue to do so!

This is the best wax I have ever used! I have wavy/curly hair in a funky boy cut with blonde foils. This product gives me a fancastic 'Just rolled out of bed with style' look. It's easy: just wake up, put a tiny bit (and by 'tiny' I mean tiny!) in your palm, and smoosh through your hair. That's it! 10 seconds and you're done :-) I have tried many, many, many other hair products: this is the best.
