What can we tell you about the Purple Haze mini-jar? That it's Purple Haze but in a 30ml pot? That it should do anything from a few panels to three or four medium-sized cars? That Purple Haze is historically our best selling Dodo Juice wax with a nice soft texture that makes it a doddle to apply? That it dresses up in women's clothes at the weekend and gets spanked for being a naughty little wax? Well, we could do and we have. And most of it is true.
OK, we digress. Back to Purple Haze itself. What is it? Well, it's our soft wax for dark coloured cars, created because we suspected that montan wax was wasted in shoe polish. Its oily hue and shine makes montan wax perfectly suited to darker shades of paint, so we mixed some up in the Dodo double boiler with the darkest beeswax we could find and our old friend, T1 carnauba.
You'll therefore enjoy an easily applied coating that fills minor defects and swirls on your car's paintwork, repels water like crazy when it rains and helps to protect the finish and make it less trouble to clean. And then there's the purpleness...
Expect a 2-4% dye tint to darken paintwork - it won't be that noticeable but it is there and it does affect the original finish (try 50/50 on a WHITE panel if you don't believe us). Metallics/pearlescents are going to enjoy the best results here.
Recoating interval? About every 2-3 months, but that's on a daily driver. On a garaged classic car used occasionally we'd probably re-wax once a year. And maybe get a finger mitt wax applicator while you are at it - they're small enough to fit into the mouth of these small jars.
Hard vs Soft Wax - which is the one for you?Whilst many of our waxes have a standard consistency, we make some of our waxes a little firmer or softer than normal. Softer waxes are easier to spread by palm or fingertips. Hard waxes often cure faster and go further, because they are less likely to be accidentally over-applied. Both contain similar amounts of carnauba and beeswax and performance will be similar. Harder waxes may cure better if you are new to waxing, so these may seem to offer more performance. And soft waxes may feel glossier due to their 'sorbet' like texture. It often comes down to personal preference - there's no right or wrong with wax texture, it just comes down to what you like.
