Customer Reviews:

Great Hold and Texture

I love this product! It gives my hair great hold and texture without being too greasy or sticky. It's also easy to wash out at the end of the day.

Leaves Residue

I was disappointed with this product. While it gave my hair decent hold, it left a lot of residue that was difficult to wash out. It also made my hair feel heavy and greasy.

Long-Lasting Hold

This product really delivers on its promise of long-lasting hold. I don't have to reapply throughout the day and it helps give my hair a great textured look.

Not Great for Thin Hair

I have really thin hair and this product made it look even thinner. It's probably better for someone with thicker hair who is looking for a more textured look.

Difficult to Apply

I found this product to be difficult to apply evenly throughout my hair. It also made my hair feel sticky and crunchy, which is not a look I was going for.

Decent Product, but Not Worth the Price

While this product does provide decent hold and texture, I don't think it's worth the high price tag. There are other products on the market that do the same thing for a lower price.

Product Summary:

The Kenra Matte Texture Putty 10 is a hair styling product that strikes a balance between hold and flexibility, making it ideal for short, layered hairstyles. It effectively manages unruly hair, creating a neat look without a shiny or greasy finish. However, its strong and unpleasant odor might not be appealing to everyone.

The putty's thick and creamy texture allows for easy application, delivering a strong hold with a matte finish that enhances hair's natural texture. It's best suited for those with natural, textured hair types who prefer a matte finish and strong hold. However, it may not be the right choice for those who are looking for a product with a thicker consistency or a high shine finish.

Once applied, the product can last for several days and is easily washable without leaving any residue behind. While overuse can result in a lack of shine, the hold remains robust. For optimal results, it's recommended to apply the putty moderately to damp or mostly dry hair to achieve a lightweight and matte appearance. Priced between $15 and $20, the Kenra Matte Texture Putty 10 is a suitable option for achieving a controlled, matte look.
