I used to buy Redken Rewind or Rusk Wired for my short, long-layered hair. Recently, I decided to grow it out a little longer, and didn't want a styling product that was sticky or too heavy. After getting the R+Co High Dive Moisture and Shine cream as a sample, fell in love and immediately purchased a full-size, I wanted to try something else by this brand.
So, I came to Birchbox and bought this with the R+Co Outer Space hairspray (that stuff's fabulous, too.)
This styling paste exceeded my expectations! It's great for damp hair, but I LOVE it for fixing up and styling dry hair. The problem I had with a lot of texturizing pastes was how sticky they could be when added to dry hair. This product has a very smooth feel. It feels like a smoothing cream; very light to the touch. But wow, it has fantastic hold! Not helmet head, mind you. The smell is hard to describe. Sweet and citrusy.
The only complaint I have is how hard it is to squeeze the product out of the tube.
