I recently got a pixie cut and this product is great for giving me a piece-y, textured look. My hair is fine but I have a ton of it, so I use about a marble size dollop. (My stylist recommended a pea size amount for most pixie cuts but my hair is thick enough I need more.) I rub it between my hands to soften it, then run it through my hair (after drying and straightening my hair). Then I just use my fingers to mold the hair into place. This has a matte finish and has more hold than I expected from something labeled "medium hold" (however, I normally use drugstore brand hair products so maybe my expectations were too low lol). It lasts all day for a typical day at my office job or running errands -- I don't know yet if it could survive a heavy workout or getting rained on etc. And it does stay flexible -- if my hair gets messed up later in the day, I can usually mold it back to where I want it, or at least close to it. It seems to wash out easily with any shampoo, but I do use a clarifying shampoo at least once a week, just in case!

not crazy about this. i have short spiky hair + am hunting for a great wax. pros: medium hold doesn't make hair look stiffcons: 1. smell is kind of floral chemical, but not overpowering; 2. the dispenser is so weird! you push up from the bottom of the bottle, then press a button on top that dispenses the paste. the first few times i ended up w/way too much product on my fingers b/c i pressed too hard or pushed the bottom too far up or something; 3. takes a while to emulsify on fingers + can leave white streaks in your hair, which go away when worked in, but that means more minutes spent on hair.

This is more matte than most pomades or pastes, so if you're looking for a shine product look elsewhere. However, if you want texture and hold, that won't weigh your hair down or leave it looking greasy, give this a try.

I love this stuff - Rough paste 12. I have longer (bra strap length) hair and this is great for -controlling flyaways and frizz-adding texture-making my hair feel thicker/less whispy and easier to styleI apply a walnut size amount to wet hair and dry. Only drawback: I hate the packaging, which often gets clogged up from product drying up in the spout.

I had my hair cut @ a salon some months ago into long layers. I didn't want them to use a razor (heard its not good for your hair) but wanted the ends to be "choppy/textured". The stylist used this on the ends and it was great for that. The smell didn't bother me-she had told me there was a fragrance to it and that it was usually targeted to men (guess that's why it smells like cologne to some). But it was amazing. Now that I have gone shorter,this comes in very handy to get the choppy look. Does not weigh my fine hair down or give it a greasy feel.

Yes it is expensive, but it is the best. I tried Garnier and it smells great, otherwise a total waste of money as it didn't hold my hair - not even a little bit. I also have Paul Mitchell wax, but it doesn't work like paste. Don't be cheap, if you need paste - this is the paste to buy. Nothing else works like this.

I have long, thick, layered hair, and wanted a little bit of texture in the layers. This product works GREAT-and I don't find a lot of products that I love. After drying and straightening my hair, I rubbed a small amount in my hands and ran it through the ends of my hair-just the top layer. It adds that little bit of separation between layers and as a bonus-keeps away frizzies and flyaways. It does not feel sticky or gooey at all. There is a bit of a men's cologne fragrance to it-but I kind of like it. And after an hour or so you don't even notice it. Love, love, love.

I have fine hair that I recently had cut short so I wanted a product to get that piecy textured look. It's Redken code 12 which means it has a medium hold. I use a small amount on damp hair then blow dry. You can also use it on dry hair.I do find it stays in better with hairspray. Possibly not as good as Redken's Rough Clay, which is for use on dry hair. Maybe better to combine the use of the two.

I have fine and thin hair but sometimes a wave. Instead of using mouse that is crunchy, I wanted something that would help enhance the slight wave without crunch or weighing it down. I HATED this when I first bought it b/c I think I was using too much. I gave it a month and tried it again (I will not be defeated) and used a small small amount, rubbed it in my palms and put it in my hair the same way I moused my hair. It's light and it keeps from getting frizzy and gives a fun, easy look. I'm getting to the end of the bottle and can't decide if I should try something else that's not so expensive but it really was well worth the $$ and I'll keep it in my styling stash. My hair is getting past my shoulders so I think I need something even lighter as my hair gets longer and heavier.

Well, this product COULD have been HG if it weren't for the smell. I usually don't get affected by the scents in hair products, but this was just overwhelming. I felt as if I had just made out with some guy wearing too much bad cologne...I smelled it ALL DAY. It was strong, and obviously not a feminine scent. The product itself is great, though! Defintely the texture of paste, and it did a great job at keep my side-swept hair off of my face. Added some volume, definitely provided texture for my piecey bob. I just couldn't take the smell, though. If it comes out in unscented, I'll rebuy...but for now, I keep searching :(
