Dax Wax is my hair wax of choice. It is also the hair wax of choice for almost all of my friends; every one of our bedrooms has the trusted little red tub in the corner. The reason for this is quite simple, we all like to think we can sport a cool hair do, and Dax is the strongest wax on the market by far. Rubbing it through your hair feels like its going to pull clumps out, hairdressers hate to try and wash it out, but it holds the hair in whatever shape or style firmly, giving longevity to one application. The minimal amount needed per application also makes a pot last forever, making it a financially attractive brand to buy.
My brother recently moved to Australia and was lost without the trusted red pot, I searched high and low for some to send for Christmas, but sadly Dax seems more of a rarity these days. During this great Dax drought, many of my peers and I have tried a variety of other hair grooming products – none of them come even close. One mate got wind that Brighton was full of lovely little red pots and made the journey just to stockpile the luxury, it was true. Brighton has lots of Dax, and grim jealousy from the rest of us soon ensued. I’ve just managed to find some on Chemist direct so I am ok for now.
How did this happen? Has Dax gone bust? And why has such a great product been allowed to disappear? It looks like my friends and I aren’t the only the fans – there is a whole world of disappointed Dax Wax fans. If you’re one of them, join the facebook group with us. We’ve also written a letter to Boots, Superdrug and one to Dax Wax makers, Imperial Wax.
