    Hi!

    I am a 24 male (student) and would like recommendations for a good matte finish hairstyling product. My hair is black and very short (around 21 mm on top and 9 mm on sides and back). I never let it grow past that and always keep it relatively short (but enough length to style it up).

    I basically want something that is easily available everywhere at supermarkets here in the UK and that washes out easily (most matte hair products take some effort to wash out of hair when showering). Also, I want to style my hair forwards, towards its natural direction and to possibly being able to spike and hold my bangs up (they always fall down).

    Thank you and appreciated!

    This is what I use - Schwarzkopf Got2b iStylers Texture Clay, 75ml

    It's £5-6 in most places but if you go to B&M, you can get for £3

    I have that one, but applying it and washing it out is a bit difficult.

    vo5 matte paste
    Isn't it only for mid-length hairstyles, though? My hair is short (17mm on top).

    The WELLA products are way better than the Vo5 ones but they're not too available in store you'd have to amazon it

    I use it and find it quite good, I suppose we just have different hair types. Plus, i have long hair which will make a difference
