Growing up in dance studios, a slicked-back bun was one of my go-to hairstyles. I was always on a hunt to find products that would smooth down my flyaways, and let's just say it was a challenge. It definitely took me a while to figure out what worked with my hair type. Recently, I discovered a product I wish I'd known about sooner: the Insert Name Here Quick Slick Finishing Stick ($18). It conditions, slicks, smooths, and holds hair without making it feel greasy or hard.
When it comes to smoothing down my hair, I like to use products that achieve a natural finish. In general, I avoid using hair gel or hairspray because they can be too stiff and require me to wash my hair right away after using them. With this INH Quick Slick Hair Finishing Stick, I can get the best of both worlds — smooth hair without that crunchy feeling. It almost feels like I don't have any product in my hair to speak of. This gives me full control over my style, especially if I want to change things up before having to rewash.
Ahead, read my full review of the INH Quick Slick Hair Finishing Stick, including how I use it in my routine.

What I Like About the INH Quick Slick Hair Finishing Stick
I like that the INH Quick Slick Hair Finishing Stick doesn't leave hair feeling greasy or sticky. Not only does my hair look slicked back, but it also feels soft and shiny. As soon as I apply this product, I instantly can feel how soft it makes my hair. My flyaways stay in place all day, and if I want to go from a bun to a ponytail, I can. It's super easy to change my hairstyle without putting in any extra effort.
I love how quickly I can apply the product. If I notice my style needs a quick touch-up on the go, it conveniently fits in my purse and applies hands-free.
How to Use the INH Quick Slick Hair Finishing Stick
You can apply the finishing stick at your roots and brush back to coat hair in the smoothing cream. Instead of putting it all over, I only use it where I need it most, which is around my hairline. I also found that using a regular hairbrush to comb the product through can help you slick back your hair even more.
What to Consider Before Trying the INH Quick Slick Hair Finishing Stick
For those with thick hair, you might need to apply more than one coat. Keep in mind that it's the size of a mascara tube, so the container isn't huge, but a little does go a long way. The INH Quick Slick Hair Finishing Stick is great for frizz and touch-ups, but if you want to create a true slicked-back style, you may want to pair it with the TIGI Bed Head Stick. These two products combined work really well together.
