MensDept. Microtech

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars (when used by a girl)

COST: $17.99

THE SKINNY: The bad thing about up and chopping your hair into a pixie is you have to go through a whole bunch of styling products until you find one that does what you need.

My hair stylist swears by MensDept. Microtech, which provides medium-plus hold and adds texture and shine. And it looked great when she dabbed a little on my freshly shorn locks. It did add a little shine and a lot of texture.

But in my hands, this product has been a minor disaster. No matter if I use a little or a lot, my hair ends up looking heavy, greasy and sad. And it gets worse as the day goes on.

It's a good thing, really. This product smells like men's cologne, which is off-putting for a girl.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. I don't have the patience to keep playing with the sample.
