Customer Reviews:

Great for creating textured hairstyles

I absolutely love the CHI Twisting Fabric Paste! It is perfect for creating textured hairstyles. It provides a strong hold without making my hair feel stiff or sticky. I can easily twist and shape my hair into any style I want, and it stays in place all day long. Highly recommend!

Leaves a greasy residue

I was really disappointed with the CHI Twisting Fabric Paste. It leaves a greasy residue in my hair that is difficult to wash out. It also weighs down my hair and makes it look flat. I have tried using a smaller amount, but it still doesn't work well for me. I will be looking for another product.

Long-lasting and versatile

This product is fantastic! The CHI Twisting Fabric Paste is long-lasting and versatile. It allows me to create different styles and holds them in place throughout the day. Whether I want a messy look or a more polished style, this paste delivers. I love how easy it is to work with and the results it gives me.

Decent hold, but not exceptional

The CHI Twisting Fabric Paste provides a decent hold for my hair, but it's not exceptional. It keeps my hair in place for a few hours, but it starts to lose its hold as the day goes on. I have to reapply it multiple times to maintain the desired style. It's not bad, but I was hoping for a stronger hold.

Difficult to wash out

I found the CHI Twisting Fabric Paste extremely difficult to wash out of my hair. Even after shampooing multiple times, my hair still feels sticky and coated. It also leaves a residue on my hands when I apply it, which is not pleasant. I would not recommend this product if you prefer easy washability.

Average performance, nothing outstanding

The CHI Twisting Fabric Paste performs adequately, but it doesn't stand out among other similar products. It provides a medium hold and allows for some styling, but it doesn't wow me. I expected more from a brand like CHI. It's an okay option if you don't have high expectations.

Product Summary:

The CHI Twisting Fabric Paste is a versatile hair styling product known for its strong hold and shine, without resulting in hair hardening or feeling gooey. It offers long-lasting hold and shine with minimal weight, accompanied by a subtle scent that is generally not overpowering. However, some users may notice a strong and unpleasant odor that can be difficult to remove.

Perfect for creating spikey or fuller hairstyles, this paste avoids making hair gummy. Its smooth and creamy texture makes it easy to work with, providing medium hold and a flexible finish for effortless styling and hair manipulation. This makes it particularly suitable for those with frizzy, naturally curly long hair, as well as for those using other Chi products. It also performs well on wavy or straight hair, offering lift and hold while maintaining a natural look throughout the day.

The CHI Twisting Fabric Paste ensures a smooth application and sustains its hold for an entire day without flaking or crust formation. However, after washing, hair might still feel like the product is present, requiring double washing for complete removal. A single wash can, on the other hand, create a more relaxed hairstyle.

In summary, while this lightweight and non-sticky paste adds shine and control without stiffening or flaking, overuse can result in hair appearing greasy, sticky, and unappealing. It is recommended to use the product in moderation to achieve optimal results.
