Who wouldn’t want perfect looking hair? Whatever style or cut you have, whether you have long or short hair, having one that closely resembles a rat’s nest is definitely a no-no. But even with shampoo and devoted conditioning, extra help is needed to tame our mane.
For the past weeks I’ve had the pleasure to test Snoe’s Hair Heroes – The Fixer, thanks to my good friend Sofie. She knows how maarte I am when it comes to hair care. Similar to skin care, I can talk on and on about hair—how to take care of it, which products are best for what types of hair, et cetera—most of which come from my own experiences having gone from short to long hair, straight to curly, and what-have-yous. So I took it as a challenge to test The Fixer.

100% love! I have never encountered such a heavenly scent—so heavenly I can’t even begin to describe it. Suffice it to say it reminds me of scented candles and drifting quietly into sleep and sweet dreams.
A friend, however, described it a the Shandal car air fresheners, particularly the green one (I think it’s lime).
But Snoe’s Hair Heroes – The Fixer did not smell at all like lime. Then again, this friend is a guy so go figure.
The Fixer indeed delivers on the hair taming category. Since the formula is quite heavy, one application instantly flattens and makes hair styling manageable. One problem I found though is that since the formula is heavy and thick, you have to be strategic in applying or else you may find your hair a tad too flat.
What I do, I apply it only on the stops and middle portion of my hair and only a miniscule amount on the curls just to keep the volume and definitions.
Ease of Use: 7/10
The formula is thick and heavy. The texture is not the same as other hair tamers that I’m used to, which are mostly hair serums (oil) and lotion type. This one is sticky so it’s quite a struggle for me.
It’s tricky to try apply this evenly on the hair. The first time, it stuck to one part only and there’s no direction on how to spread it evenly.
The container is also a bit hard to pump and I find the nozzle opening is too small. If the product requires me to use a dime size amount, then I’d be pumping several times.
It’s clever how they marketed The Fixer as a hand cream as well considering the stickiness of the product. Even if it’s not mentioned, I wouldn’t wash my hands anyway because I love the smell so much.
It also says to apply only on dry hair. I tried it on wet hair and it’s not so bad. It’s just that since it’s sticky and cream based, you might find it icky if you apply it on wet hair.
It’s just too heavy on the pocket. There are hair tamers that are more affordable than this one so I’m not so happy with the price. But if you consider the formula, its texture, the scent, quantity needed per use, and the strength, the price may be reasonable.
Just a note. I searched the Snoe website and there’s a bit of confusion because even though it’s called The Fixer, the website calls it baby hair tamer. So this may just confuse other consumers missing this product via search engine because they typed the fixer vs baby hair tamer.
If you you want the sophisticated and sleek look, Snoe’s Hair Heroes – The Fixer is for you. It has the a heavy, cream based formuly to tame baby hair and other wayward strands into perfection. But, if you’re not the type, you can always limit the application and do a spot application to add volume here and flatten there. In either case, your mane will still be fabulous and will smell heavenly. Not to mention your hands!
The downside is that it is pricey and application tricky. Would I recommend it! Definitely! It’s just not the perfect match for, for now.
