Customer Reviews:

Great Hold and Texture

I absolutely love this hair styling clay. It provides a strong hold and gives my hair the perfect texture. I can easily style my hair and it stays in place all day long. Highly recommend!

Difficult to Wash Out

Although this hair styling clay provides a good hold, it is extremely difficult to wash out. It leaves a residue in my hair even after multiple washes. Not ideal for frequent use.

Long-Lasting Results

This hair styling clay is amazing! It keeps my hair styled all day long without needing to reapply. Even in humid weather, my hair stays in place. Definitely my go-to product.

Decent Hold, Average Texture

The hair styling clay provides a decent hold, but I was expecting a bit more texture. It does the job, but doesn't give my hair the desired volume and definition. It's okay for everyday use.

Strong Scent

The scent of this hair styling clay is overpowering. It lingers in my hair throughout the day and can be quite overwhelming. I wish it had a milder fragrance.

Moderate Hold, Easy to Apply

This hair styling clay offers a moderate hold that is suitable for everyday styling. It is easy to apply and doesn't leave a greasy residue. Works well for casual looks.

Product Summary:

The Old Spice Hair Styling Clay is a dependable option for those seeking a strong hold that lasts throughout the day and potentially overnight. It features the strongest matte hold in its range, offering lasting style. However, the product emits a strong, almost ammonia-like scent that might not appeal to everyone, though it does add a distinct masculine character, differentiating it from traditional Old Spice products.

This clay provides a matte finish, avoiding the wet or greasy look often associated with hair products. It leaves hair looking natural, without visible residue or build-up. Its smooth, creamy texture makes the clay easy to work with, simplifying the application and styling process. While it's not ideal for straight hair due to application challenges, it performs well with fine, thin hair, offering a robust hold.

The product's hold is durable throughout the day, with different effects achievable on wet or dry hair. It washes out easily at the end of the day, maintaining its hold without leaving residue. However, it's important to apply the clay in moderation, as overuse can lead to hair looking greasy or oily and can make styling and shaping more difficult. In summary, Old Spice Hair Styling Clay is a solid choice for those seeking strong hold and easy washability.
