Paraffin or Beeswax

If theres 8% of paraffin(microcrystalline wax)
or, 8% of peg-8 beeswax 
  on hair styling product. Which one would actually give more hold to my hair?

    @Aldyppratama actually evryone has adequat use so for oil phase you should will use parrafin and for water phase you should use Peg-8 beewax.

    depends on the grade of paraffin/microcrystalline wax - depending on the linear/branched ratio of its constituent hydrocarbons it can be malleable or brittle
