It provides a great hold, able to tame all my flyaways and especially long hair. It also feels really light on your hair.
The hold drops noticeably after 4-5 hours. So, for a normal work day, it may not last all the way. This is probably due to its light weight. A touch up may be required, or you can use a hair spray to lock it in to allow it to last longer. Another way would be to use a pre-styler to aid in increasing the endurance.
It is rather close to a neutral shine. Definitely not that matte.
This thing is hard. Scooping it form the jar is as though using my fingers to lift a dumbell. Imagine using ur index finger to dig into a hard candle wax. It is that hard to scoop it out. You would require a vice claw to do it.
Suprisingly, even with the super hard scoop, the breakdown is super smooth. It is really creamy and glides easily on your palm and fingers. Emulsifying it is also easy and spreads really easily.
Super easy to apply. No tug, no pull. Smooth application and glides along your hair.
The scent is really unique. Kind of like a blend of mint and traditional chinese herbs. Its either you like it, or you dont. Initally, it felt weird smelling it, but after using this product so many times, i have gotten used to it, and quite like the scent.
Super easy to wash out. 1 shapoo use, and all is out.
