Birchbox Breakdown

Bring a little organized anarchy to your hair with this hardworking paste. With bentonite clay and beeswax, this pliable, high-hold formula delivers lift, separation, and texture while absorbing excess oil—lending a matte finish to short and shaggy mops alike.

How to Use

Moving up from the roots, work a small amount of paste into damp or towel-dry hair, and give it a little tousle for that slightly undone look.

Hair paste

My son loves this stuff. My husband doesn't have hair so it wasn't an option for him but my 19 year old loves it.

I like, but doesn't fit his profile
Sampled

I will likely steal to use this but it definitely doesn't fit his beauty/grooming profile so I don't think he will be using it. I think I'll be content with using it.

Cleans Well, Not Too Drying

Decent shampoo. Good scent, cleans well, didn't dry my hair much. What's not to like?

Excellent Texture and hold

I wasn't sure about this product when I first got it on my hands, but once I worked it into my hair I was convinced. Great product. Great hold.

Solid product but not on my thick hair

I like how the product felt, smelled and applied but it didn't hold my thick hair very well.

Kind of thick, not great hold

The scent is a little off. It's not bad or strong, but it's not good either. The paste is thick and doesn't warm up in your hands very easily. The hold doesn't last long although it's nice that it doesn't make your hair too stiff.

Not the best, not the worst.

This didn't work super well, but it also didn't do nothing. It also felt really weird and made my hair look greasy.

Great paste

This is a great paste that provides good hold. It was easy to rework my hair after initial use.

Not for me

This hair product didn't have the hold I was looking for. I have long hair for a guy and It just does not hold the style that I like.

Works great and smells great!

I like this hair product a lot, it keeps everything together and clean looking but it looks natural. It also smells fantastic
