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.
