Customer Reviews:

Brilliant Shine, Impressive Hold

The shine it provides is truly unparalleled. My hair looks glossy, healthy and well-styled when I use it. The hold is impressive too, maintaining my hairstyle for the entire day. It's really a top-tier product for those seeking a shiny look.

Feels Greasy

Despite the great shine, I have to mention that it does leave my hair feeling a bit greasy. It's probably the price to pay for such a glossy finish, but it may not suit those who prefer a lighter feel.

Easy to Apply and Style

The ease of application is one of its strong points. It spreads evenly through the hair without clumping or sticking. Styling becomes a breeze with it, giving me the ability to achieve a variety of looks.

Moderate Pricing, Decent Quantity

It's moderately priced, not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive in the market. Given the quality and the amount you get, I would say it's a decent value for the money, although not the best deal out there.

Overpowering Scent

While some might enjoy it, I find the scent to be a bit too strong for my liking. It tends to linger and can be a bit overpowering if you're sensitive to strong fragrances. I wish it had a subtler scent.

Not the Best for Matte Styles

If you're aiming for a matte finish, this might not be the best product for you. It definitely leans towards a shiny, glossy look. For those seeking a natural, low-shine style, it may not meet your expectations.

Product Summary:

STMNT Grooming Goods Shine Paste is ideally formulated for traditional medium-length, slightly wavy hair, and works best on hair that is neither too thick nor too thin. It offers a light to medium strength hold, which is effective in keeping hair soft and pliable while still maintaining its style. A small amount of this product goes a long way in providing a long-lasting hold accompanied by a pleasant coconut scent.

The paste gives hair a shiny wet look with a matte finish, adding flexible definition, natural texture, and bounce. It has the advantage of being easily washable with shampoo, ensuring no residue is left behind. However, users should be cautious with the quantity applied, as overuse can lead to a greasy, sticky feeling, and can make hair feel dry and stiff. While the product is effective, there is a suggestion that its cost could be more competitive.
