Description

Abyssinian Twirling Wax is a moustache wax with excellent hold and styling properties. This is a heavy-duty wax and performs best in hot or humid conditions. I personally use it daily in the summer, but when temperatures drop below 10 degrees Celsius outside, I turn to one of my medium-weight and softer waxes. (See my Lanolin Spruce Moustache wax, Absolutely Frank and Babylonian Beard Wax.

Abyssinian Twirling Wax is all-natural and made with pure Frankincense Frereana, (Maydi) from Somaliland. It blends the natural Frankincense fragrance with the honey tones of fresh beeswax, the chocolaty warmth of Cocoa Butter, and a hint of musky Lanolin. it is all-natural and contains no added fragrances, preservatives or colours.

Resins such as Frankincense, have the ability to not only hold the hair in place for extended periods of time, but they train and “perm” facial hair in whatever form you desire. This leads to styling that requires less wax for hold, and contours that look easy and natural. The Lanolin helps keep hairs soft, supple and nourished, while the Cocoa Butter reduces hair pulling during application.

This wax can be especially useful when transitioning from a closely trimmed moustache to a full moustache and helps one avoid the sometimes messy in-between stage.

Applied with a heavier hand, it is perfect for freestyle designs and elaborate gravity-defying expressions.

It has excellent hold and endurance through hot humid summer conditions, smells wonderful and will easily style the tightest turns, twists, and handlebars. It works just as well on short moustaches as large elaborate creations.

For more subtle shaping, larger or bushier tracts of facial hair, a small amount warmed on the fingers, lightly brushed through the beard will accentuate waves or ripples in a long beard, give an expansive beard shape and cohesiveness without making it look stiff or forced. Use sparingly on beards.

It blends easily with most beard oils and they can be blended with it in the beard to lessen its hold and distribute it evenly. If needed, a brush or comb will help blend this super sticky wax with an oil of your choice.

—————————What customers have said about this product——————————-

“Your Abyssinian Twirling wax is far superior to anything else out there on the market. I ordered a 2 oz tin after a couple of uses on my first tin. Being honest about it, I’d say your wax is in the top 3, being the highest, the others being the Firehouse Tacky and Rex Wax. But I’d say both of those are a far second and third to the Twirling Wax. Keep up the good work.
Sam G.”

“The superior resin blend in Apothecary’s Garden Abyssinian Twirling Wax can keep the Imperial pointed and indestructible for three days here in temperate spring weather (early March, upper 80’s). This wonderfully named styling wax already outperforms the common drugstore brand and has an intriguing aroma that makes attractive people lean in closer. It shows every promise of being able to withstand the slings and arrows of outrageous Phoenix summertime temperatures. Well done!”

-What Great product, best yet for hold, great base notes from the frankincense, need more.

-This is an amazing wax! I have caught myself sniffing my moustache just for the wonderful smell. As Dan has written in the description, it is a heavy-handed wax but with the right tools and patience, it works wonders. The tin is properly sized to easily fit in your pocket. And did I mention the smell? Amazing! Excellent product from an excellent seller. I can’t say enough.

-“I have tried five very good waxes but this one is exceptional! Holds up in heat, goes on nice and DOESN’T bead up in stache!!! A+ product and customer for life.”

-Awesome Wax Great Hold for your stache and smells amazing

“Shipment arrived safely. This wax has spectacular hold smells great too.”

“Excellent Styling Wax, the most suitable i tried for our hot summers!
The transaction was smooth and shipment fast, Thanks a lot, תודה רבה”

    I will be a repeat customer for this product. I'm still fairly new to the handlebar mustache game and tried a few other waxes before settling on this one. The resin is what sets it apart and helps keep my tips together and up there. It has a tackiness that keeps my stache in place whereas I was constantly brushing the hair out of my mouth with other products. My hair is fairly thick and wants to grow down, not to the side. I live in southwest Florida and this summer will be the real test. Before using this wax I use a dab of Got 2B Glued styling jell and let it dry first then use the Abyssinian wax. This stiffens my ends and they hold even better.

    Heavy duty, great smelling beard and hair wax! It can be challenging at first to figure out how to best apply it, but once you get the hang of it, it's a pleasure to use.

    Fabulous wax. Going to convert some to a solid perfume base, and use the rest for the punk hairstyles of my dreams. Full mohawk next! Really, the sheen and hold is impressive; always soft, never crunchy – twist and twirl away! And it rinses out wonderfully with a little extra lotion, oil, or moisturizer. Makes me wish I had a mustache. Then again, I am Italian, so there's still time.

    Fast shipping, showed up in good condition.
    This is a smooth application for such a stiff setting mustache wax. Thoroughly impressed at it's performance.
    Even better that a little goes a long way as it spreads so well.
    Frankincense aroma is strong at the beginning but fades as the day goes on
    works amazing as a primary or secondary wax
    I've used Firehouse and Secondary – can you handlebar and this one performs easily as well .

    Shipped quickly and in a sturdy bubble envelope, which was nice.

    The wax itself is really great. It gives a nice hold and I find it to be easier to work with than some other heavy duty waxes I've tried, as I personally find it to be less sticky/tacky. It has a mild scent of frankincense to it, but it mostly fades after a short while. I can be sensitive to scents and perfumes, but this didn't cause me any issue.

    Overall, this is my new favorite styling wax, and I definitely recommend anyone looking for a strong hold to try it out.

    Love the fragrance! Excellent hold but because it is very firm, takes a little more care in the application (to avoid any clumps). Best hold of all my waxes.

    I have around a dozen different waxes and this is the strongest hands down. It also applies smoother than others like Firehouse Wacky Tacky and holds all day. Only downside is this is a wax that you have to use a hairdryer for even if its been in a pocket all day, it does not work without a hairdryer (I tried). Overall this is my go to wax now and will be buying a 2oz shortly

    Fabulous hold, and it smells divine — that Boswellia absolute is utterly dreamy and I love having it under my nose, making the blostering desert heat of late summer more bearable. It goes on surprisingly well give how tacky it is, the hold is long, and the perking action is absolutely stupendous. I've tried all of Dan's waxes and love all of them, but this may be my favorite, both from the smell and the perming action. Bloody fabulous…

    Works a little too good as a hold. Even in 85*F weather this stuff is too firm to apply. I’ve tried warming it up with fingers and leaving it outside on summer days and it’s still just too gummy. I’m not trying to twirl with it, just tame my wirey facial hair. I’ve managed to make it work by mixing it with beard balm so that the oil sorta softens it, but it’s still too tacky for my purposes. Seems unwieldy even for twirling unless you leave it outside in 100*F weather to keep it soft and pliable. YMMV

    Tried a ton of mustache wars, this is the best. Holds and smells great. Been using it steady for a few years and just recently figured out if I wet my mustache before putting wax on, it applies more evenly and is less likely to yank out hairs from sticking to my hand. I don't often use a hair dryer to soften the wax but this way is way faster and more reliable for an even application.
    My last order showed up a week or two earlier than expected too which was great

    Powerful and pliable hold. As advertised, it has a temporary perming action from the resin. So odd to see my handlebars curl back up stepping out of the shower.

    I have used for over a month and this is the best for mustache control. Holds hairs in place and smells like fresh cut wood. I used Honest Amish wax but this is by far the best. This is max control, Frank is mid, & Amish is low. Have bought another & will keep on buying.
