Customer Reviews:

Amazing Hold and Matte Finish

I've been on the hunt for a hair product that provides a good hold and matte finish, and this is it. It keeps my hair looking great all day without any shine. Really impressed with it.

Hard to Wash Out

While I love the way it styles my hair, I find it quite hard to wash out at the end of the day. I often have to shampoo my hair twice to fully remove it.

Minimal Product Needed for Great Results

I appreciate how a little bit goes a long way. Just a small amount is enough to style my hair, meaning the product will last for quite a while.

Decent but Overhyped

It's a decent hair product, but I feel it's a bit overhyped. It does the job, but there are other products out there that perform similarly at a lower price point.

Unpleasant Smell

My main issue with it is the smell. It's quite strong and not to my liking. I find it a bit off-putting when styling my hair.

Good Hold but Leaves Hair Feeling Dry

While it holds my hair in place quite well, I've noticed that it tends to leave my hair feeling dry. It's not a deal-breaker, but something to be aware of.

Product Summary:

Pete and Pedro Putty stands out as a high-hold, low-shine hair styling product, adept at creating natural, voluminous styles without a matte or greasy finish. This product excels in enhancing the hair's natural texture, effectively defining and separating curls while adding volume and structure. It is characterized by a neutral to slightly lemony scent, which is both pleasant and masculine, though it gradually fades over time. This putty is versatile, being ideal for a range of hair types including thick, dark, coarse hair, as well as short, fine, and soft hair.

Its durability is notable, lasting at least a day and potentially up to two weeks, depending on usage. Additionally, the putty is formulated for easy washing out, ensuring that hair remains soft and manageable after use. However, users should be cautious with the amount applied. Too much product can lead to stickiness and greasiness, while too little might result in dryness and a hard texture. One consideration for potential buyers is the price point, which is relatively high considering the quantity provided. This factor might influence the product's perceived value for some users.
