So it’s not often that I’ll write about haircare products as I’m not the best when it comes to hairstyles…my hair is normally down in waves/curls and on the odd occasion I’ll wear it straight…other times you’ll see me in sporting a ‘messy’ bun and that’s the extent of my hairstyles…wow! So a few days ago I popped into Superdrug to have a look for a new wax type product to just hold my waves/curls better and I came across this VO5 Soft Moulding Wax.

Why did I pick the VO5 Soft Moulding Wax?

I actually picked it for the sparkle effect on the front….seriously! Anything that resembles a sparkle I’m drawn to it haha!

No on a serious note the product is described as a soft wax which gives definition (hold) to the hair, gives it shine and controls frizz.

Considering I have wavy/curly hair I don’t suffer with frizz which is fab but my hair is very ‘in it’s own world’ and sometimes my hair is wavy and other times curly hence why I say my hair is wavy/curly!

What do I think of the VO5 Soft Moulding Wax?

I like the colour, it’s pink! It makes me happy and it has a very nice smell, think of it as fresh flowers….that’s the best way to describe it. The texture is indeed a soft wax and when it warms up turns into a very sticky cream.

After washing and towel-drying my hair I combed it through and applied a little amount of the VO5 soft Moulding wax through my hair and started to scrunch it just to see the outcome. 聽After letting it air-dry my hair looked ok, there was more definition but it wasn’t wow and I could feel a little bit of the product on my hair….not great. 馃檨

The second time I used this product I used less and didn’t scrunch it but again I let it air-dry….again I found that I could feel the product on my hair….I hate it when that happens!!

The time after this I decided to use a small amount on the ends of my hair to see if it’ll just give it a little bit of hold without the feeling of product in my hair and that worked the best- yay!

Overall what do I think of the VO5 Soft Moulding Wax?

I think it’s an OK product, I don’t use a lot of it now and would never use this if I was to straighten my hair as I think it’ll feel awful!

However if you have wavy/curly hair like me use a very small amount (pea size) on the back of hair and scrunch it slightly, it’ll give it more hold and you shouldn’t feel it in your hair. 馃檪

Would I recommend this to family, friends and readers?

No, as much as I’d like to say this is a wonderful product, I have to say it’s not that great. It does give slight hold and if you do use a small amount you won’t feel it on the hair however I do think there are better products out there….sorry VO5! 馃檨

So, lovely readers, if you’ve tried this please let me know!

    I have been using this product for quite a while and think it is fab. I have short hair and I use it to give definition and lift, but I use it on DRY hair. I use my hot brush to style, comb or brush in place, and then put soft moulding wax on my fingers and just run it through. It gives a fabulous look, it shines and looks healthy and I never get a sticky feeling once it has been put on. I found your web site because I am looking for a supply of the product as our local Boots/Superdrug are not very big. (live in the country for my sins!). Anyway, hope that helps as I think it seems to be getting a bad press on your site. Admittedly I haven’t used it on damp hair – but then I don’t need to.

      Thank you very much for your comment – as I always say, sometimes what I might not like others might love and what I love others might not like鈥t just didn’t work on my hair but it’s long and it felt quite sticky, I tried it on dry and wet hair and it wasn’t for me but as I said what works for me might not work on others and vice versa! 馃檪 xx

    I’ve seen this in Superdrug and it looks nice but I dont like it when i feel the product in my hair.
    Is it thick and does it leave hair feeling greasy? x

      Hi Tina, if you don’t like feeling product in your hair then this isn’t for you! I recommend the Neal & Wolf Styling Creme which holds hair and smells lovely without it leaving hair feeling eww! 馃檪 xxx
