Mitch Clean Cut hair paste has a light-medium hold, a faint smell with a pine scent, and a semi-matte finish that could give a shiny appearance. We noted that a little of the paste goes a long way, and that it dries hard in the hair, but is easier to spread when the hair is damp or wet. We warned that applying too much of the paste will weigh down the hair and make it appear greasy. We also noted that it works great for a "messy" textured look, and works well on both thin and thick hair, as well as both long and short hair. We noted that it lasts all day, but is hard to restyle after hardening. We also noted that it is easy to wash off and out of the hair, but can make the hair appear shiny. We noted that it made the hair feel a little greasy, and the trick with this paste is not to apply too much, which of course depends on the hair and its thickness. The paste is priced at around $20.
