I’ll start with a confession – I wasn’t really sure what to do when I received a tub of Dominate Out of Bed Clay hair wax to review recently, for two reasons:
1. I haven’t used hair products since I stopped wearing corporate office attire
2. Well…let’s just say I have a bit less hair on my head than I used to 🤷🏽 😂
After stashing the Dominate hair product in my drawer for almost a week, curiosity got the better of me. Maybe I was feeling nostalgic or maybe just having a bad hair day, who knows, but I cracked open the tin like it was a XXXX Gold on Boxing Day.
I was greeted with a smooth waxy surface that reminded me of a scented candle, so I intuitively gave it a sniff. My unsophisticated nose revealed hint of lemon, which I discovered after reading the tin was actually sage oil, apparently good for healthy hair and scalp.
Scraping the surface the Out Of Bed Clay it was surprisingly soft, and definitely less greasy than most other ‘bed head’ style products I’ve used in the past.
I rubbed a blob about the size of a 5c piece between both hands and palms to make it easier to spread across my noggin.
After applying it evenly to dry hair, it immediately became a bit heavy and oily. I was expecting bed hair, not a wet-look! At this point I wasn’t really sure if I’d applied it incorrectly, or just didn’t have the right hair style (or maybe I should have read the grooming guide first…hmmm…)
But 20 minutes later, some sort of magic happened.
Pulling up at the local shopping centre and forgetting about the hair product all together, I habitually ran my hands through my hair. It felt a lot more natural now, slightly straw-like, similar to after a day at the beach.
And just from that unintentional tousle, my hair had sprung to life!
I know my face doesn’t show it, but I was actually surprised how easily the Dominate Out Of Bed Clay had added some dimension to my hair with virtually zero effort.
It’s got me thinking, maybe I should start keeping a tub of hair wax next to my block of surf wax, just in case I need to spruce up my mane for a special occasion.
Dominate Out Of Bed Clay is available from major Australian supermarkets for $13.00.
