  • I Love Sumotech 5 Star Rating
    I have been using Sumotech for years it has a great pliable hold which is perfect for the bed head/messy hair style that I have. I emulsify a small amount in my palms and use my fingers like combs and apply it into dry hair. All day long it evolves and never looks bad no matter how much I run my fingers through it. I don't find it greasy at all and would stockpile it if I ever hear it's being discontinued.

  • For Long Term, Strong, Clean Hold, This Is It. 5 Star Rating
    Pros: A little goes a long way. Cost per day is excellent.Cons: Need to apply properly - else - white gunk in your hair.The Bottom Line: If you need a product that provides a long term, strong, clean hold, this is it. Before Bumble and Bumble�s Sumotech Id wash my hair every day, and apply a little "something" to get the hold I need. With Sumotech I can go three days before I need to repeat the process - and my hair doesnt get funky. I can just rinse my head in the shower in the morning, dry, comb and go - I have no idea why it works so well. Major plus in my book is no apparent perfume - as a guy I appreciate that. The product comes in a small 1.5 oz jar and is a white wax. The trick is to take a small amount, (about a single peanut size), into your dryhands and rub hard to �melt� the wax � and then apply to your towel dry hair. If you don�t rub hard and soften the wax, you�ll get while clumps in your hair � not good. The product is very �clean� � by that I mean if properly applied it doesn�t gunk up your hair, it doesn�t attract dirt, it doesn�t create an oily mess like a lot of the �pomade� style products � and it washes out easily. Method: Towel dry hair, then hands. Apply about a single peanut worth to hands, rub both hands together until warm, run hands through your hair. Comb. Once dry, comb again to get a dry, no fuss, look.

  • Not As Good As Original 3 Star Rating
    I bought this after borrowing my brothers Original Sumotech - he was almost out of it when I got my hair cut short. So, I bought this new one. Not as good. I keep going back to the remnants of the old one. This new one leaves hair greasy and heavy and does not provide a hold.
