The best (and worst) temporary coloured hair waxes that get you in trend
We tested out Mofajang, Ashmud and Chameleon Color's and gave our honest reviews.
Crazy hair colours are still the trend in 2018 and we’re jumping on the bandwagon of coloured hair waxes!
It can be expensive to get your hair done in a salon and choosing a colour to stick to for the next few months is a huge commitment. But coloured hair waxes are a cheaper, temporary alternative to give your hair a cool makeover.
These products are blowing up on social media, and claim to add texture, shine and colour to the hair, while providing a strong hold with no damage or stickiness. They each cost less than $10, and wash off easily so you can try a new colour every day.
They sounded too good to be true, so we tested the waxes on our Youth.SG content team to see if they really lived up to the hype.

The texture of Mofajang was more like a hair gel than a hair wax. It was difficult to apply as it clumped up the hair, and Amanda found it especially tough to comb through her thick hair.
She said: “The wax just sits and does not blend well.”
The hair wax flaked throughout the day and stained their clothes. Thankfully, nobody faced any problems washing it out.
Cons: Sticky gel, flaky
The texture of Ashmud was highlighted by the testers as the best of the three waxes, and was easier to apply and blend.
“It’s not too wet or dry – just like a wax should be,” Gray said.
There was minimal staining and flaking. As for colour, Gray’s hair turned out pink instead of red (again), Amanda’s purple was barely visible, and Dexter’s grey wax was white, turning his black hair grey. However, the white wax may have different results depending on the base colour of the hair.
Chameleon Color’s had varying textures for different colours. While red had a similar texture to Mofajang, both purple and grey were a stiff clay.
“It was not spreading well so I had white streaks,” said Dexter, who was uncomfortable with the feel of the hair wax and washed it out within an hour, “I looked like Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations.”
The general consensus was that this was the most difficult hair wax to apply, as the dry wax kept flaking off, causing discomfort and staining clothes.
Here are the final results of each hair wax side by side.
