Heavy Hold for Thick Hair

This is my first experience with a matte paste, and I definitely have experienced a learning curve. With thick hair, it was easier to apply smaller amounts well warmed up at a time rather than a larger amount all at once. The hold lasts me all day, doesn’t melt on rainy days under a hood, and washes out with shampoo. I like the scent, the texture, and how well it holds my style together for my hair type. The only thing that put me off was the hardened top layer, but as I have moved past that it becomes more moist and easier to scoop out. Great job, Arcadian.

Great smell and breakdown but very little hold

I really wanted to like this product as I’ve read a lot of good things. They smell was great and the product breaks down really easy in your hands for applying. However, the hold just wasn’t there for me. After only a few hours my bangs would be falling out of place. Applying more product did not seem to matter and it only made restyling harder.

Officially converted

Since I started using the clay pomade last year, it has been one of my top go to products. At first, trying the matte paste, I thought it was way to thick and grippy for my hair type. But after some time away, I decided to give it another try, and somehow I had a very different experience the second time around. Maybe it’s the batch I received, but now. I feel like it’s the best of both worlds. It has the easy scoop, breakdown l, but slightly drier than the clay pomade. Granted it doesn’t glide through the hair like butter, but it doesn’t tug or pull too much either. And the end result is something I feel much better and more confident about. High hold with restylability throughout the day and a much truer matte finish. Overall, a great product in my opinion:)

Not Heavy Hold

I got this for a heavy hold and matte finish. I spent $17 on this instead of $6 Axe matte paste. The Axe paste held better. This has a decent smell and holds ok, so it's not horrible, but it wasn't worth $17.
