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 hair styling product that offers ease of application on both wet and dry hair. It is characterized by a strong scent and dries to a matte finish while maintaining a certain level of shine. The cream provides a hold that is reminiscent of hair spray but without causing the hair to harden, which makes it more akin to a wax in terms of texture and ease of spreading in the hands.

This product is affordably priced but may not be the best choice for those with long or thick hair. While it does not maintain its hold throughout the entire day, it does offer the convenience of being easily rinsed off with just water due to its water-soluble nature. However, users might find it challenging to spread the product evenly in their hair. Additionally, applying too much of the Smooth Viking Cream can result in a greasy appearance. It's worth noting that the product has a heavy and sticky consistency, which should be considered when deciding on its suitability for your hair type and styling preferences.
