Heavy hold is right

The Matte Paste is like a heavier, dryer version of the clay pomade. In many ways this styles like a more traditional heavy clay product but with those unique Arcadian qualities. There is a definite waxier, stickier feel to this that makes it more difficult to scoop and break down, but that translates into some serious hold and texture. Wherease the clay pomade has really nicely balanced texture, this stuff is geared entirely toward coarse texture. If you’re looking for maximum texture, this is the product to get. I also really love how it makes my fine hair look and feel thicker. The finish is definitely matte but not an unhealthy or overly dry matte. Because of the ease of application and lighter hold (which works better for my slightly longer, messy side part), the clay pomade is still my go to daily styler, but the Matte Paste is just as good a product. If you like the clay pomade but have always wished it had a firmer hold, this one is for you.

Finally found the paste for me

I've used a variety of Matte Pastes out there right now: Monarche, Lockhart, Label M., O'Doud's, Apothecary 87. I have fine hair, and none of the above have worked as well as this paste. It is a bit dry and does have some tug to apply for sure, but it gives awesome texture, and doesn't make my scalp visible nor make strands separate. It also goes straight for the strong hold on my hair, none of this pliable nonsense ("It falls down all the time but you can just brush it back into place!"). It just works.

Worth the Price!

I am a guy who used a lot of budget products and this was my first time to buy something more premium. I'm very impressed with how well it performs! It has some grip when you apply it to dry hair but has amazing hold that lasts all day! Once the product settles it loses some of the grip but there's still a bit there which helps with the reworkability. With cheap product I would have to use texturizing powder to give my hair the hold it needed but this stuff is more than enough. Even if I use a leave in conditioner (which normally lessens the hold of the product I use) and no pre styler I still get such good results. Wash out is pretty good as well. Mostly comes out with just water but a round of conditioner would probably get it all out. It has safer ingredients in it which is just icing on the cake. I also enjoy the scent. Has a mild citrus, earthy smell to it.

Top shelf

Almost didn't buy this based on the review from The Pomp fellow, but I couldn't disagree more with his assessment. This is a stellar matte paste and holds up true to its description.

favorite matte paste

This is my favorite matte paste to date. The level of dryness in this product is spot on. With the clay I feel like I only get a good style in only bone dry hair. This works great in damp or dry hair. Best product in there line IMO
