Customer Reviews:

Smells Good, But Hard to Apply

This fiber smells fantastic, with a subtle and pleasant aroma. However, I found the texture a bit too thick which made it difficult to apply evenly throughout my hair. It's not bad, but there's room for improvement.

A Perfect All-Day Hold

I've been using crew fiber for a while now, and the hold is simply exceptional. My hairstyle remains intact throughout the day, without the need for touch-ups. It's non-greasy and leaves no residue. I am truly impressed!

Decent Product, Yet Overpriced

This product holds up pretty well and has a nice matte finish. However, considering the price, I expected a bit more. It's not a bad product, but there are cheaper alternatives that perform similarly.

Heavy and Uncomfortable

I tried it based on a friend's recommendation, but I was disappointed. The product feels heavy in my hair, making it uncomfortable to wear throughout the day. It also leaves my hair looking unnatural and over-styled, which I do not appreciate.

Easy to Wash, Gentle on Hair

What I love about this is how easy it is to wash out at the end of the day. No residue left, and more importantly, it doesn't leave my hair feeling dry or damaged. This product is a keeper for me.
