(MALIN+GOETZ)

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

If you’re wondering whether this styling cream will work with your strands, let us save you the trouble: It will. It’s formulated to play nice with hair thin or thick, curly or straight, short or long, color-treated or your natural hue, so it can support any style. Sage and chamomile extracts sooth the scalp, while shea butter, sweet almond extract, and panthenol deliver nutrients and hydration to hair.

How to Use

Work through clean hair, damp or dry. Start with a dime-sized amount for fine hair, and use a quarter-sized amount or more for thick, coarse, or long hair. Comb through for a slick style or tousle for a more mussed look. Dab in a small amount to detangle and style strands on the go.

Phenomenal

I love Malin & Goetz Sage Styling Cream! This products leaves my coarse frizzy hair feeling nice and soft. Given the fact the styling cream is very light, it works with other hair products to make a cocktail.

The product works well. I am not a big fan of The smell of Sage but it wasn't overpowering.

Sage Styling Cream
Sampled

This product is okay. Not great. It's very light and if good for anyone who wants a very natural feel and look from their cream. Don't expect much hold.

Great smell wrong product for my hair texture
Sampled

I love the way it smells. But it doesn't really hold my hair in place too well. However, it may just not work with the texture of my hair because my hair is very dry and requires a stronger hold.
