construct styles with chunky separation, oversized pieces and a matte finish.
I bought this product to style my quiff and it really doesn't work to create shapes. It has no hold at all either and you use too much it makes your hair greasy.
I like the texture and the finish, but not a fan of the smell. While not as sweet as Jonathan "Dirt" (which is hazelnut), it is more of a cologne smell than Joe Grooming Texture Paste (which is pretty much scentless). This stuff has almost a tobacco smell to it. Not my favorite smell, but the hold and finish are great, especially for the price!
Best product I have found for my hair, thank you, Hair Cuttery. Not the strongest hold, but use with a small amount of Pantene Hairspray and it will hold for 12 hours, and hair still will be manageable. Bottom line, I have very fine, straight and thinning hair on top, this putty gives my hair a thicker look, and doesn't fully separate like Gel does. Works well with a texturing type of hair cut.
I was used to the rough clay 20 and told this was replacing it, do NOT like it, the clay did not turn greasy after a while, nor did it smell like men, The clay 20 was PERFECT, can find nothing to replace it, kind of disappointed. Bring it back! My hair and I beg of you:~)
This is by far the best stuff I've ever used. I've used gel, wax, hairspray, all the Crew products, axe, etc. and was never satisfied. This doesn't make my hair feel gross and has really good hold with out being hard or looking greasy or wet. Also it DOES NOT smell. It's actually one of the better smells! Highly Recommend.
First of all, this stuff does NOT smell bad whatsoever. Maybe you just got a bad product or something, but mine smells great. As for hold, it's not the strongest thing in the world, but some help from hairspray is good enough. A good thing to keep in mind is that when you first put this stuff in your hair, it does look kind of greasy, but it just needs to dry, so after you put it in your hair,
Works perfectly for 4 hours and then begins to smell. Had to get a new hairbrush and never have used this product since. Redken #20 was perfect. Shouldn't have been discontinued. :(
I got this at a local salon, and I have to say I love it. Yeah there's a slight smell but it wears off in like 20 minutes. If your that persnickety about the smell just put some finishing wax on it and it smells amazing. Anyways the hold is great and it lasts for quiet sometime without giving that shiny guido hairstyle. Definitely a great buy!
Does exactly what it says on the packaging. Just got it yesterday and so far I'm LOVING it! Different smell, but doesn't smell like crap; in my opinion at least.
I don't think the smell is a big deal, because it wears off pretty fast. Anyhow, this wax is great if you want to make a cool style with decent hold that looks modern, with no grease. The texture it creates really looks cool.
