Poor for styling on thinner hair Has a poor amount of hold Has absolutely no texture There is no matte finish, it just looks greasy The only way to get this to provide a suitable finish is to top it up with hairspray. Would not recommend, and would definitely not buy again.
This, smells terrible, and woman will run ten miles away from you if you're wearing this on your hair, not only does it make the hair look greasy it also leaves a white tinge in the hair, it is hard to put on to and very difficult to wash out, does not have a strong hold either. Every time you touch your hair you have to literally wash your hands, due to the small it leaves on your hands. It's basically like putting dried toothpaste on your hair.
I have fine hair, so I needed a product which would keep my hairstyle in place. Generally day to day, this does the job, but you will need to put the style back in place occasionally throughout the day as it doesn't have a great hold. It doesn't hold in wind (even light wind) unless you put a significant amount in, and use hairspray. This is in no way ideal as the product can weigh down your hair if you put too much in, but if you don't put enough in it won't hold. However, it has surprised me on many occasions when I thought my hair had surely blown out of place, but actually it had not.
I won't be using this further when I find an alternative.
For everyone saying this product is greasy - you may simply be using too much, you really don't need a lot! I've been using various pomades for about a year, and wanted to try some more matt-look products, and this works really well, I was surprised. Far less greasy looking than your classic pomades like Murrays, DAX, etc. And look at the price! It's a no-brainer, give it a try, and don't use too much. I use got2b Matt Paste first, then dry my hair and then use this V05 Clay, they work well together.
This is the worst clay ever. Was really surprised since its vo5 brand..... seems like vaseline mixed with white chalk..very greasy and pain to wash out with water... wierd feeling on scalp and makes hair limp...
