    Well I want to make a hair pomade, so I know that PVP is used for fixation commonly, i dont have that ingrendient at my disposal so I want to know if there is another component to gives fixation to your hair.

    Since PVP is probably the most easily available setting polymer- the first question to ask is : - what do you have at your disposal?

    I have only waxes, like beeswax and carnauba wax. do they work well for fixation?
