This product is an all round knock out. It grips and slicks short or long hair and effortlessly shapes just about any style. Its almost too easy. Best used to create short textured looks, or longer sweeping styles where ultimate control and precision are required. This petroleum based clay is of a thick consistency, but it has great control and is slightly more dry than a classic pomade. Strong hold, but reworkable. Uppercut Matte Clay has a peppermint scent with a vanilla undertone. You can acheive all kinds of styles with this product.
