Great product with long lasting hold I highly recommend
I use this as a pre-styler, and most-often don't require a post-styler. It works perfectly to blow-wave my thick wavy hair, nice and straight with a good amount of hold that lasts. Have tried lots of pre and post stylers (Blumaan, Hanz du fuko, Trade Union, etc.) and this by far works for me.
BEST. PRE. STYLER. IN. THE. MARKET.
I used to use three-four drops of argan oil and 2-3 drops of olive and almond oil as a prestyler before to help tame the frizz and keep my hair smooth and straight. But ever since I started experimenting with this product, that's it. I don't think I'll ever use anything else as a prestyler. Ever. Just half a pump of this thing on my 4-5 inch damp hair before blow drying, and I can get just about any result that I want. And add a beautiful post styler, which for me is either shear revival gray ghost, or shear revival Northern lights, your hair will not only look healthier than it ever did, but the style will hold for almost two days, easily. Smells like a cologne too.
Really great product for pre-styling! Gives amazing texture and volume into the hair. It’s a great combination with a lighter post-styled, such as a matte paste. But you can get amazing results with a heavier product such as a clay. Can end up using less post-styler to get great results!
Never really had success with pre-stylers but Enigma is amazing. As the name suggest, definitely a mystery how it works. Half a pump or less was sufficient for me. Comb + blow dry with finger comb to finish. Cowlick contained, curls tamed. The smell may not be everyone's cup of tea though. Reminds me a bit like incense. However the smell is only strong when applying and during blow dry. Not noticeable afterwards. Would definitely recommend
