Customer Reviews:

Great Hold and Texture

I love how the Layrite Cement Clay provides a strong hold that lasts all day. It also adds a nice texture to my hair without making it look greasy or weighed down. Highly recommended!

Difficult to Wash Out

One downside of the Layrite Cement Clay is that it is quite difficult to wash out of my hair. Even after multiple rinses, I still feel some residue left behind. It can be frustrating, especially if you prefer a low-maintenance styling product.

Long-Lasting Hold

This product is amazing for keeping my hair in place throughout the day. Whether I'm going for a sleek look or a messy style, the Layrite Cement Clay delivers a long-lasting hold that doesn't require constant touch-ups. Love it!

Decent Product, but Not My Favorite

The Layrite Cement Clay is an okay styling product. It provides a decent hold and texture, but it doesn't stand out compared to other similar products I've tried. It's worth a try if you're searching for a new clay, but it didn't become my go-to choice.

Too Heavy for Fine Hair

If you have fine hair like mine, I wouldn't recommend the Layrite Cement Clay. It tends to weigh down my hair, making it look flat and lifeless. It might work better for those with thicker or coarser hair textures.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about the Layrite Cement Clay. On one hand, it provides a decent hold and a matte finish. On the other hand, it can be a bit difficult to work with and doesn't offer as much control as I would like. It's an average product for me.

Product Summary:

Layrite Cement Clay is a hair styling product that offers a strong hold but tends to have a greasy texture. The newer version of the jar does provide better hold, though some greasiness remains and it might not be considered exceptional by all users. The product has a sweet vanilla scent which is noticeable but not overpowering and tends to fade after a few hours. While some might find the fragrance appealing, it may not suit everyone's taste.

A notable feature of Layrite Cement Clay is its ability to provide a matte finish with texture and spikiness, avoiding a crusty appearance. It effectively holds hair in place throughout the day and allows for easy restyling, giving hair a natural look as if no product was used. The product has a creme-putty consistency which is non-sticky when used in moderation and washes off hands easily, ensuring a smooth application process.

Priced between $18 to $25, Layrite Cement Clay is especially effective for fine and thin hair, adding thickness and enabling stylish looks. It performs well on medium-length, straight hair by keeping flyaways under control and maintaining a sleek appearance. It stands out from other products that either have excessive greasiness or lack lasting effects.

The product is easy to wash out, requiring only water and soap. It can be removed effortlessly during a regular hair wash. However, users should be cautious with the amount applied, as overuse can lead to a thicker hair appearance after blow-drying and might leave a slight shine despite its matte finish claim.
