  • A: It has that smell that hairgel has, decently strong. Almost kind of a soapy smell in there, too. It's not offputting, but you can definitely smell it.

This has been my sons go-to styling product since we started doing his hair. We use a small amount on his shorter hair so it lasts us a while. The hold lasts all day without looking greasy or crunchy.

I bought this product to use on my short hair. I am female. However, I was not able to find a product to use that I like that is marketed for females. This product is exactly what I was looking for! It smells great, holds all day, and can be easily restyled by running my fingers through my hair. I highly recommend it! I will definitely purchase again in the future.

My go to product for many, many years. Now it's a watered down version of what it used to be. It's bad enough that they keep raising the price but now they have cheapened the formula. Sad...

Bought for my husband recently because I needed to grab something quickly. My local target didn’t have many choices so I grabbed this. He has very thick hair. Military cut. This did the job to keep it in place without making it hard or greasy.

Axe really messed this up :(

1 out of 5 stars
- 8 months ago
originally posted on theaxeeffect.com
I had been using this product for many many years. As someone with thick and messy hair, I loved the almost waxy consistency and matte finish. It had great hold without going overboard or being obvious, and it lasted. However, the latest tin I just bought has a completely different product with a new formula that is completely different from what it had been all this time. The new "paste" is essentially a cream. It has none of the good qualities of the original product. Axe, how did you mess this up so bad? Please bring back the original formula.

I’m super picky about my two sons’ hair and this is one of two products I approve for their hair. Holds, but washes out easily. Perfect for my little boys, even their dad uses it now too

They changed the formula. It's like lotion now. Does nothing for texture or hold. This stuff was perfect. I don't know who was stupid enough think this was better than before. No way in heck I'm putting this new version on my hair.

What happened to the paste? This new product is like lotion, not paste. I purchased a tin and assumed it was bad batch, bought another at a different store. Same issue. Different texture and different hold from the original.

I’ve been using Axe messy paste for years and I loved it. Unfortunately, the paste is not nearly as firm as it once was. I now have to find a new product.

The description of medium hold and low shine is accurate. The hold doesn't last too long. This product would probably be better for someone with shorter hair.

I am genuinely confused… this was the only product I could use that kept my hair nice and up without it looking like garbage. You guys changed the product? Why?? Worst move you could’ve ever done. I’ve been using it for so many years. Genuinely, I am very upset. Bring the old one back
