Customer Reviews:

Great hold for short hair

I have short hair and this paste gives me the perfect amount of hold without looking too stiff or greasy. It also has a nice matte finish.

Not effective for long hair

I have long hair and this paste did absolutely nothing for me. It didn't provide any hold or texture, and my hair just looked flat and lifeless.

Easy to apply

This paste is super easy to apply and distribute evenly through my hair. It doesn't clump or leave any residue, and it washes out easily.

Decent hold, but not my favorite

This paste provides a decent hold for my hair, but I've used other products that I like better. It's not bad, but it's not my go-to either.

Leaves hair feeling dry

After using this paste, my hair feels really dry and brittle. It also seems like it's harder to style after using it.

Works well for textured looks

If you're going for a messy, textured look, this paste is a good option. It gives a lot of definition and separation, but might be too heavy for more sleek styles.

Product Summary:

The Paul Mitchell MVRCK Dry Paste is a flexible styling product ideal for short styles and thin hair, offering a flexible hold with a matte finish. It adds texture without heaviness, making it suitable for lighter hair types. The paste is user-friendly, allowing for multiple restylings throughout the day while maintaining its hold.

Its minty scent receives mixed reactions; some users love it and receive compliments, while others find it subtle and masculine but potentially headache-inducing. Designed for long-lasting hold, it suits even active lifestyles. However, washing it out can be challenging, sometimes leaving hair feeling unclean. Excessive use may result in a greasy after-feel, despite multiple washes, and can leave residue, contradicting its matte finish claim. Priced between $20 and $30, this product requires careful application to avoid these issues.
