GO247 Texture Paste

As you might expect from a line founded by a celebrity hairstylist, GO247's Texture Paste delivers red carpet-worthy results (we’re not surprised it won a Details magazine award in 2012). The flexible formula provides 24-hour volume and definition with a smooth matte finish and a pliable, comfortable hold. Unlike hair gels or some other pastes, it results in a softer, more natural look.

Good for easy hair
Sampled

First off, my hair has 3 "cow licks" in it. Therefore, most products wont work on my hair. When I used this a few times, it did do an admirable job but not the perfect job. My friend used it and he has what I consider "normal" hair. He loves the product as he can control his hair freely.

Not for Curly Hair
Sampled

So I have used this product twice now. Let me first say that it is not for people with curly hair. The second time I used it I straightened my hair beforehand and it seemed to work a bit better.

Control without the controlled look.
Sampled

When I was a kid, females used you always touch my hair and tell me how soft it is. I was always worried that this meant I had thin hair and I'd start losing it as I got older. Thankfully this was not the case.

However, my hair is very soft, and many products simply don't work for me without using to excess. For a few years prior to receiving this product in my Birchbox, I used a similar product from another brand. I was happy with it, for the most part, but always felt like there was a fine line between getting the control I wanted and using too much product.

The GO247 paste is a better fit for me. This clay / paste gives you great control without making your hair look slick or overly conditioned. Even if I accidentally use a little too much, I don't get a styled greasy look or feel with this product. Just the thicker texture and control that I like from a hair product.

Works as advertised
Sampled

I'm not really the guy to review this product because I don't use any gel, spray, pomade, tonic, etc. These products get in the way of a man because they melt on a hot day and are otherwise too high-maintenance. Nonetheless, worked as advertised. A pea-size amount was enough to affect all my hair.

Great hold

GO247 has great hold all day, but gums up a bit if I don't figure out what to do with my hair right away.

Impossible to wash out.

I received my sample in a birchbox and gave it a try when my normal hair gel/grease ran out. I liked the texture it gave my hair, but when I tried to wash it out using shampoo in the evening it seemed like it would never come out and I still felt the texture in my hair after washing several times.

Not different from other similar products

Paste was fine, does the trick, holds the hair although there are definitely more inexpensive options out there that are just as effective.

First product I purchased from Birchbox
Purchased

Great product. I have used all kinds of hair products and this is one of my favorites. I go a long time between haircuts, getting it cut short and changing the style as it grows (I'm cheap and busy). I have generally changed the type of product I use depending on how long my hair is, starting with a testure paste like this when it is short. As it gets longer, a paste generally makes my hair look like it has a lot of buildup and kind of dirty for my taste, so I will switch out to a lighter gel or cream. Not so with this. It feels very light in my hair. It doesn't feel like I am wearing anything, but I can tell I am when I look in the mirror. The volume, control and texture are amazing. Also, for a paste, this goes into damp hair better than any that I have tried before.

It's okay

I prefer my current hair product to this paste. It has a good hold, but not as good as the other stuff i use
