Rated 5 out of 5 by hairbydavid Staple Perfected Hair Product.
I've searched years and years looking for a product that could sculpt, mold, and show off my hair texture and magnify it. I've tried so many brands from expensive, high-end, and niche, and the Malleable Molding Paste is perfect! It really pushes the bar on what products claim to do, versus what actually happens.
I'm a professional hairstylist and have seen them all, especially when it comes to the men's hair department. Especially all the newer developments over the past few years from waxes, clays, creams, fibers, pomades, and pastes. I really have to say I hadn't come across anything this lush, flexible, sculpting, or resilient for my hair. My hangup with most has been that they are greasy and felt like I've always needed heavy shampoo to get it out, or that the product was damaging my texture. I've never had that feeling with this product and I leave on for days and reapply about every other day. Rinses out amazing, and also smells great.
Dry hair: Take your middle finger and grab enough to take about a dime size and apply to coat your palms together creating a fine coat on palms. Clap to activate the silky fiber. Start application in the crown and work forward with fingers and apply rubbing palms backwards through the sides. Work product in evenly to tips of hair to maintain even coat and distribution.
*For best results and to intensify the texture and hold blow dry your hair until you know your hair is warm and there is no more dampness in the product. Now sculpt your hair to your hearts desire. You can achieve gravity defying results!
Sometimes I heat the product up with the blowdryer on one palm to make sure that if I have blow dried the hair to keep even temperature of the hair to product ratio as cold product and warm hair would ruin the blow dry.
Damp hair: For a textured surf or loose wave look apply a quarter size and apply in palms even coating. Start application in the crown and work forward with fingers and apply rubbing palms backwards through the sides. Work product in evenly to tips of hair to maintain even coat and distribution. Work until excess moisture is worked through, sculpt then refine with finger tips.
Things I've noticed, initial over application will look and feel greasy, if that happens either heat it up or keep messing with it and moving it around, eventually it'll work itself out because the hair absorbs this product and leaves the silky fiber. At first glance I applied to much and really disliked the product, but went out into the hot Southern California sun and my hair really absorbed the moisture until I was able to sculpt, also didn't prep my hair for it.
I will show a few examples.If I ever reach a certain amount of feedback I will do a video tutorial. I hope it helps or works for you. Cheers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by nford Nice Medium Hold..
I'm happy with this purchase. It has a nice light-ish hold, doesn't weigh my hair down, and leaves it looking healthy. I like how it's in a jar because I feel like I have more control of how much I use.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Larfifty5 Decent Product
I have been using this product off and on for the past few years and would recommend it to another person. I do suggest that you do leave the top of for a a couple days since it will dry the product up a bit and will work a lot better with the styling and hold. Without doing so, I find the product to runny and not as strong as I would like in a styling product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kiehls131 Not that good
It hydrates the hair and holds it well that's true but it left me with a whole bunch of white stuff in my hair and made my hair feel dirty.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JPinTX Have been using this for years
I've tried many different types of "pomades" and this is the best product I've run across. What I like the most is that it has a strong hold (but not overly strong) but rinses out cleanly when showering. It's not waxy and doesn't flake. Love the product and have been using it only for years!
Rated 3 out of 5 by CollegeStudent Weak Hold
I really wanted to like this product, but I just did not work out for me. The description is a little misleading. I have medium length hair and and this paste would not hold up my hair throughout the day. It did leave my hair feeling so soft, which I really loved. Overall, I was a little disappointed in the product especially since I have so much left that is going to go unused.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chell This stuff is fabulous!
Great hold without being sticky. I've tried several other brands and this is the best. It doesn't take much which means the tub also lasts a really long time - making the price a bargain. Thanks Kiehls!
