GRIPS Hair Styling Products and Fiona Colognes by Skintec

A little over a week ago, I received a pack of products for review – Grips Hair Styling Products and Fiona Colognes by Skintec. To be quite honest, I stopped using gels and other hair styling products because of the hassles that I have to go through putting it on, washing it off, etc. Plus I’m also not the kind who’d fuss over my hair for extended period of time. So I was quite hesitant using GRIPS Hair Styling Products. I actually asked my cousin to use it, so I can get feedback from his experience and write about it. Unfortunately, he has yet to drop by my place to pick them up. What I have are GRIPS Hair Clay FX, GRIPS Hair Wax and GRIPS Hair Gel.
