Customer Reviews:

Great hold and texture

I love how this paste holds my hair in place without making it look stiff or greasy. It also adds a nice texture and volume to my hair.

Too heavy for my hair

Unfortunately, this paste was too heavy for my fine hair and made it look weighed down and greasy. I had to wash it out immediately.

Long-lasting hold

This paste keeps my hair styled all day long, even in humidity or wind. I don't have to worry about my hair falling out of place.

Decent product, but not my favorite

The Construction Paste is okay, but I've used other products that I like better. It does have good hold, but I don't love the texture it gives my hair.

Difficult to apply evenly

I found it really hard to apply this paste evenly throughout my hair. Some sections ended up way too clumpy, while others didn't have enough product. It was frustrating to work with.

Not sure if it's worth the price

The MITCH Construction Paste is pretty expensive compared to other hair styling products. While it does work well, I'm not sure if it's worth the extra cost.
