So I was watching TDM Style review this entire line on YouTube and I was out of town and didn't have my usual product with me so I picked this one up at Target and let me tell ya.. I was VERY PLEASANTLY surprised!
The name is miss leading because this is not a fiber whatsoever, but a pure texture clay (which is even better).
The smell is wonderful, nothing overpowering, but natural.
The ingredients in this are all high quality, and there aren't any bad chemicals which is wonderful!
The clay itself is a bit hard to scoop out, but once you warm it up, it goes in the hair fairly easily.
I usually use a pinch (like half the size of my pinky fingernail) and apply it into damp hair, I then blow-dry it in.
That gives really wonderful volume, texture, a matte finish with great control and a silky smooth feel.
Then I add a pea sized amount to tweak & finish the final style.
It's better to layer this product in little by little as it has a high hold and you don't need much of this stuff!
Also, I noticed that if I add a drop of water to my hands while emulsifying the product, it goes on dry hair way easier.
The hold is a true high / strong hold! No doubt about that!
The style remains reworkable throughout the day and looks good the next day too!
It doesn't get greasy at all as it has both, Kaolin and Bentonite clays as first ingredients.
It's water based so it washes out easily with a simple shampoo.
If you just rinse your hair with warm water, you'll still have some leftover product in your hair. So I'd simply use a touch of shampoo and it'll be out, no problem.
I use the highest end products on the market ,and right now, on my all-time favorite is "crafted matte paste" from the Salon Guy in collaboration with Flagship pomade, which is a phenomenal product and unique, to where I've never used something similar!
But this one here, for the price, is truly a fantastic product because comparing to other high-end products that cost 3 times the price for lesser the amount, this is a bargain and this product delivers just as well if not better than a lot of those higher-priced products!
I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a matte finish style, especially good for people with thinner hair because the clays in it plump the hair up making it look much thicker!
Overall thoughts,... Wonderful product with really good ingredients for the price point!
A jar will last you a while as you don't need much!
Get it, I highly recommend it!
