(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 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.

I use this all the time is amazing.
Purchased

Its a conditioner and a styling gel talk about win win situation. I love this hair cream and it keeps my styling looking great and it does not weigh me down one bit. Ive bought this multiple times and highly recommend it to any hair texture and any one with medium to long hair. Great Product.

Great hold without being too stiff
Sampled

My husband uses this stuff daily. He really likes how it gets his hair under control but doesn't leave it feeling stiff and plasticy.

Smells great and makes hair feel great
SampledPurchased

To start, i love the smell of this, the sage adds a perfect scent that smells natural and natural; not like i sprayed my hair with cologne.
I use it as kind of a base product for styling my hair or on days that I'm i just want to throw something in really quickly and be able to run my hands through it all day!
I usually put it in while my hair is still wet , let it sit a minute, and then blow dry it. It gives my hair a lot more structure and hold in a natural way , i can then put a styling mud or gel on it for styles that need a more solid hold.

Loved the scent but not great hold
Sampled

I liked this product for a summer day when my hair style is a bit more relaxed. I found it did not quite have the hold I was looking for for everyday use.

Not a great hold
Sampled

I saw noticeably more "flyaway" hairs than I normally do using other products. After using a decent amount, it did not hold my thicker hair as much as I'd prefer.

This styling cream is the perfect product for great hold without that flaking or stiffness of a gel! Left my hair feeling nice and looking shiny!

Great smelling product

This hair cream is awesome and works better than I expected. Malin Goetz is a great quality brand, the product isn't too greasy and holds my hair very well. Still keeps hair malleable for touch ups here and there. Highly recommend

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
Sampled

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.
