(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.

Strong Sage Scent - Last All Day
Sampled

Was not for sure how much product to use since I have never used a cream like this before. Scent is strong and took some getting accustom to but I like it now.

Smells great, light hold
Sampled

Not as much hold as I generally like out of a product, but I can see the need/appeal of a light hold, and it doesn't make your hair feel stiff or greasy at all. This stuff also smells great. I'm more of a pomade guy myself and have a go-to, but I would definitely try other Malin + Goetz products based on this.

Awesome

this is a great product for bald guys I highly recommend re gifting it to someone with hair. People with hair will love it.

Great Product, but....
Sampled

The product was excellently packaged and immediately peaked my interest. It had a great texture and smell and I thought I would really like it. The product just wasn't effective with my hair type. I have thick wavy/curly hair and the product just isn't quite able to take my hair and get me through the day.

Good, if part of hair cocktail.
Sampled

This styling cream was not very effective for me if used as a stand alone hair product. I have a long undercut hairstyle. This cream did not offer much in terms of hold. However, it does add some nice texture and "lift" to my hair when styled with a hair dryer. I needed to use a finishing product to accompany the cream. Gel or a pomade or a jelly wax was necessary for me to get any hold.

Good product, just a very light hold
Sampled

I think this is a quality product if you are looking for a light hold but I prefer something stronger for my thinning hair. The product smells great and its a good size for a sample.

Not appropriate for my hair type
Sampled

I like the texture and smell, but this isn't a great product for my hair type. I have short, thinning hair, and this gives me more of a "wet look" than is appropriate. I'm sure it's great for thicker styles and longer hair, but lacks the versatility to be a winner in my case.

Firm Hold
Sampled

A great smelling product with a firm, but not plastered, hold. It does make the hair look slightly greasy/wet in certain light.

Great product.
Sampled

I love this product. It smells great and doesn't make your hair look like you have tons of product in it. However, I have thicker hair and I feel like I need something a little stronger than this to keep my hair in place.

Hold isn't great
Sampled

I would say this is something you should use in a cocktail with some pomade or clay. The hold is pretty weak. Smells great though!
