(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.

This is a great styling cream that keeps hair firm and smooth for hours. I recommend this product if you want an all day hold

The only styling product i need for my hair
Sampled

Very glad I tried this, because it is just about perfect. I keep my hair quite short and even a small amount of gel can be too much. This keeps things in order and doesn't get goopy. The smell is interesting, but dissipates quickly.

Great in small amounts

I've used this a bunch of times after receiving it as a sample. It's not too greasy and works well for me in small amounts. My hair is normal/thin in some spots.

The brst

Hands down, this is the best hair styling product I have tried. It's light, with no crunch, and smells great. No thick, shiny chunks of hair; the hold lasts for hours.

Great for bed

Not too much hold. Incredible smell. I use it before bed after a shower just to keep my hair looking tame and natural rather than my other products that are more firm holding.

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.
