Customer Reviews:

Great Hold and Texture

I love how the Dapper Dan Matt Paste provides a strong hold that lasts all day. It gives my hair a nice texture without making it look greasy or weighed down. Highly recommend!

Difficult to Wash Out

One downside of the Dapper Dan Matt Paste is that it is quite difficult to wash out completely. It leaves a residue in my hair even after multiple washes, which can be frustrating.

Natural Look

This product gives my hair a natural, matte finish that I absolutely love. It doesn't make my hair look stiff or overly styled, but still provides enough hold to keep it in place throughout the day.

Moderate Hold

The Dapper Dan Matt Paste offers a moderate hold, which may not be suitable for those with very thick or unruly hair. It works well for everyday styling, but may not provide enough control for more intricate hairstyles.

Strong Scent

The scent of the Dapper Dan Matt Paste is quite overpowering for my liking. It has a strong, cologne-like fragrance that can be overwhelming, especially for those with sensitive noses or allergies.

Mixed Results

I have mixed feelings about the Dapper Dan Matt Paste. While it does provide decent hold, it tends to make my hair feel dry and stiff. It's not my favorite styling product, but it may work better for others with different hair types.
