(MALIN+GOETZ) sage styling cream

A bit of sage advice: If your style needs serious (but not stiff) hold, scoop up a tube of this botanical-based cream. Whatever look we’re going for, this styling cream gives firm but flexible hold—meaning our hair stays touchably soft, and stays in place even if we touch it. And unlike some products that deposit dulling residues on hair, this one moisturizes strands and boosts shine, leaving hair looking great even on days you don’t style it.

Not a strong hold
Sampled

Not sure about the other reviews, but this certainly wasn't a strong hold for my hair. Almost seemed as though I was just putting lotion in my hair. Wouldn't recommend.

Not enough hold, to none at all
Sampled

Smells great! that is about it, no hold, or very little in both damp and dry hair.

Great scent undercut by weak hold.
Sampled

Strong, amazing scent, but sadly, I am unlikely to ever buy a bottle because the hold is too weak, which is surprising considering I have fine, light hair. If you are expecting "super-mega-ultra hold" like L.A. Looks circa 1989, then this is not your product. Otherwise, if you need minimal product and hold, then this would probably work for you.

Did not work
Sampled

The product is rather runny, and does not do much for my hair. At least it did not dry it like most pomades and gels.

I did not like this product at all. It smelled great, but it did not work at all for me.

Disappointed
Sampled

The product did pretty much nothing for my hair. The smell was nice and the texture was great, but the actual product was too thin to do anything for my moderately thick, straight hair.

I use all sorts of products and was excited about this brand when I heard of them, but I am sad to report it is a big let down. I'll give the product a 2/5 because it does smell great and it seems to be working for other people with thinner hair or less constraints.

Not Effective
Sampled

This hair product is the worst I have ever used. When I put it in my hair all it did was make my hair appear wet.

Not for my hair.
Sampled

I have thinning hair so I generally use matte styling products. This product was thin in consistency, and high shine so it made my hair look even thinner. Also it doesn't smell good. You know your product isn't great when it is out classed by a drug store product that costs a quarter of the price.

Not Effective
Sampled

I was excited to receive this product and upon opening the tube I felt it had a great scent; however, I found it to not very effective. I will not be buying this product in the future.

Weak Hold
Sampled

This is not meant for a strong all day hold. Great scent, however can not hold up all day.
