Product Summary:

It's user-friendly, easily applicable to various hair lengths including short, medium, and long, and is effective on both wet and dry hair. This paste is successful in providing body and hold without leaving a greasy appearance, and it comes with a pleasant scent that endures throughout the day.

Particularly well-suited for thick and stubborn hair types, the product's hold can last up to a week, even with regular washing. However, users should be cautious with the amount of product used. Overapplication can result in hair becoming sticky and more challenging to wash out. Additionally, it's possible for the paste to leave residue, flakes, or granules in the hair. Incorrect application can also lead to undesirable outcomes such as greasy, dry, or stiff hair. Thus, it's important to apply the product correctly and in moderation to achieve the best styling results.
