Customer Reviews:

Long-lasting Hold

I'm absolutely in love with the hold this shaping cream provides. It keeps my hairstyle in place throughout the day without needing any touch-ups. I've never had a product that could do this so effectively. This has become a staple in my haircare routine.

Too Thick and Difficult to Apply

Unfortunately, I found this shaping cream to be quite thick and difficult to work with. It's hard to spread evenly in my hair and it takes a lot of time and effort to apply it properly. This is a big drawback for me.

Refreshing Tea Tree Scent

I absolutely love the refreshing scent of tea tree in this shaping cream. It's not too overpowering and leaves my hair smelling fresh all day. It's a small detail, but it makes a big difference in my daily routine.

Good, but Not Outstanding

This shaping cream is good, but I wouldn't say it's outstanding. The hold is decent and the scent is pleasant, but I've used other products that perform similarly. It's a solid choice, but not a standout.

Dries Out My Hair

Despite the great hold and pleasant scent, I've found that this shaping cream tends to dry out my hair. After using it for a few days, my hair felt brittle and lost its softness. This was a deal-breaker for me.

Decent Hold, Unremarkable Texture

This shaping cream provides a decent hold, but I found the texture to be rather unremarkable. It's not too greasy, but it doesn't feel particularly great in my hair either. It gets the job done, but it's nothing to write home about.

Product Summary:

Tea Tree Shaping Cream offers a flexible matte hold with a light to medium grip, making it versatile for various styling needs. This product is distinguished by its unique fragrance, which tends to elicit strong opinions — you might find yourself either loving it or not favoring it. It's particularly effective for creating a messy look, managing flyaways, and enhancing the texture and thickness of hair.

The cream is easy to apply on dry hair, and a small amount is sufficient to achieve the desired effect, highlighting its efficiency. It's suitable for all hair types, with a notable ability to provide more control for thinner hair. This product maintains its hold throughout the day and is praised for its easy washability, leaving no residue behind. However, it's important to be mindful of the amount used, as excessive application can result in a greasy appearance. Priced in the mid-range at about $15-20, it offers a good balance of quality and value.
