The secret to Alix Earle’s slicked-back hairstyles is on sale for under $8

This flyaway-fighting stick just might fly right off the shelves.

Alix Earle included the TikTok-famous Samnyte Hair Wax Stick ($10, $8) in a roundup of her Amazon favorites during Prime Day — and right now, the viral find’s marked down even more than it was during the retailer’s annual bargain blowout.

The viral beauty product, now at its lowest price of the year, is made to fight flyaways and smooth strands with plant-based ingredients like beeswax, vitamin E and castor seed oil.

Earle’s hardly the only one who keeps the formula on hand, as Page Six Style Senior Writer/Editor Melissa Minton calls it “one of the only hairstyling products I will use, period.”

“I has no scent [and an] amazing hold, but doesn’t make your hair crunchy, stiff or sticky in any way,” she explains. “In fact, it has an almost moisturizing effect — though I’m not sure if my hairstylist would agree — and isn’t a pain to wash out at all.”

Minton notes that a “dense boar-bristle brush to smooth out the hair after running the stick over it is a must for perfectly slicked hair without any flyaways.”

She uses the GranNaturals Soft Bristle Brush ($6) to achieve just that — “no hairspray needed.”

Supermodel Josephine Skriver is equally devoted to the beauty editor-approved buy, as she said she’s “obsessed” with it during a livestream on Amazon.

“Now that I’m pregnant, I’m getting baby hairs everywhere,” she explained at the time. “This genius hair stick keeps them in place and under control when I wear my hair up.”

The slick stick is similarly popular with shoppers; it’s racked up over 41,900 largely glowing customer reviews praising everything from its “non-messy formula” to its “affordable price.”

“The wax stick glides on like a dream and holds everything in place without making my hair feel like it’s trapped in a glue factory,” wrote one, noting that the compact stick can be tossed into a gym bag “without fear of leaking.”

Just be sure to add one to your cart ASAP if you’re planning on purchasing, as savings on this viral stick-based styling solution won’t, well, stick around.
