Customer Reviews:

Unpleasant Smell

While it does a decent job at styling, the smell is off-putting for me. It's quite strong and lingers, which is a deal breaker. I wish they would consider a fragrance-free version.

Easy to Apply, Average Hold

The cream spreads easily through my hair, which is a plus. However, the hold is just average. It works for a casual day, but not when I need a more polished look.

Perfect Hold, Lasts All Day

I'm really impressed with how well it holds my hair in place. No matter what kind of day I'm having, it stays put. It's also easy to apply and doesn't leave any residue. Definitely a game changer for me.

Great for Thick Hair

I have thick, unruly hair and this cream works wonders. It tames my hair without making it feel heavy or greasy. It's the best I've tried so far.

Good, but Pricey

The cream does its job well, but it's a bit expensive for the quantity provided. I would say it's decent value for money, but not outstanding.

Not Ideal for Fine Hair

I have thin, fine hair and unfortunately, it doesn't hold my hair as I would like. It might be better suited for thicker hair types.

Product Summary:

Smooth Viking Cream is a paste-like product that is easy to apply to both wet and dry hair. It has a strong smell and dries to a matte finish, but the shine lasts. It has a hold similar to hair spray, but without the hardening effect. It feels more like wax and is easy to spread in hands. It is not expensive and not suitable for long or thick hair. It does not last all day and is easily rinsed off with just water. It is water soluble, but not easy to spread in hair. If too much is used, it can make the hair look greasy. It is heavy and sticky.
