John Allan's

Birchbox Breakdown

Leave crispy and flaky hair product to the boy bands of yore—your coif deserves something more sophisticated. The minds at John Allan’s, New York’s famed full-service men’s salon, created this super smooth blue styler. It applies easily and quickly and dries to a matte finish. Use it to give hair any shape, style, or texture you like.

How it Works

This alcohol-free formula conditions hair with orange flower, lemongrass, lime, grapefruit and lanolin extracts. You’ll get a lightweight hold without any of damaging chemicals often found in hair products.

How to Use

Rub a penny-sized amount between palms until it’s spread evenly (don’t over do it—a little goes a long way). Run hands through hair to create a textured or smooth look. Add more as needed.

Matte? Yes. Shape? Not so much.
Purchased

I was looking for a good blend of matte finish with some styling power. But this is all matte, no shape or hold. The only way I can get any kind of shape out of this is to use an insane amount--more than I've used for any product before it. Suffice to say, it's a one time purchase and I'll be going back to my older product ASAP.

Great product!
Purchased

Good scent, good hold without looking too obvious. Hold lasts for a while. I'd buy it again. Previous products I've tried made my hair too shiny or "glued together". This one is just right.

Love this product and would highly recommend
Purchased

This is a great styler that I would recommend for men who like to keep their hair in place without getting the sticky, dirty hair feel some products leave. It is very light and applies easily. Best for short hair.

Very clean

Adds just a bit of hold and a touch of shine. Not much fragrance to it. It really does not add a heavy pomade look to your hair.
