(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.

Nice, but not what I'm looking for
Sampled

It is exactly what it says: a cream that's not too stiff. I usually use a thicker pomade-type of cream due to my not-so-thick hair. This is definitely more of a thin, runny cream that will keep frizz under control, but not hold much body.

Did what it was supposed to
Sampled

Did what it was supposed to, I usually prefer something a bit dryer when finished. It dried a bit too wet and didn't hold as long as I usually like, but that's how it was designed.

What's the Point?
Sampled

It would have been just as effective to use water to style my hair than this product. There was no hold and all this product did was make my hair look greasy. I have short (1-2") hair which makes the failure of this product even more spectacular.

good stuff
Sampled

My wife actually steals all the styling gels and creams because she rocks the short, spiky hair look. Anything that lasts her through the day is most welcome. It wasn't too heavy and did the job.

Gave to a friend
Sampled

Curious why we set up "profiles" and then get products that we cannot use? I have little to no hair, which is in my profile, and yet I get shampoo and styling gel. My friend that I passed the product along really liked the texture, hold and quality of the product.

Great product!
SampledPurchased

I am very picky about my hair and the product I use. For years, I have had a hard time finding the right product.

The minute I used this product, I LOVE IT! It doesnt leave my scalp and forehead gressy while leaving your hair shinny and long lasting hold. The product also smells great.

I enjoyed this product so much that I just purchases a full bottle on line. :)

decent scent, but not a lot of power.
Sampled

I've used this several times now. perhaps I need to really load up the goop, but in comparison to normal gel and waxes I've used, this doesn't have the effect I want/need for my hair. I have fine full hair.

Not great for hold
Sampled

I have medium length hair and this product adds a nice shine, but hardly any hold. Goes great after putting in a holding paste.

Perfect for a natural look
Purchased

This cream is light with a pleasant scent. My hair is very curly, but not coarse. The curls tend to be ringlets (width of a Sharpie). I used the product on wet, and washed hair and let it air-dry. My hair is now defined, but still soft to the touch. I used a dime size amount for medium length hair. I really like this cream, it is not sticky at all!
