So, if you have mid-long hair like me, this pot might last a month - 6 weeks depending on us. So, I would say a little pricey compared to some of its competitors, however, I have tried many of the competitors and this is worth the extra.
1) It holds well, really well. I have thin blonde hair which left to its devices will turn to a bowl mop with no care. This product helps me to style (easily) and ensuring better hold by using more WITHOUT turning into a greasy or uncontrollable mess. That is the difference here...if you need more hold just use more product and your hair will not suffer.
2) Other products I have used - Dax purple (good) blue (ok) Black and white pomade (ok but weak) B&W wax (too greasy) Fudge matte hed gas (instant results but fades after hours). I can confirm this Layrite is far better than these other products (and more).
3) I use a small dose of strong hairspray to keep hold & from 7am-7pm the hold remains. It is remarkable.
4) Smell is pleasant - on the sweeter side without going too far.
This is a great alternative to other major players like Uppercut Matte Pomade. I have thick medium to long hair and it holds perfectly if applied in the correct manner.
Step 1: make sure you have damp hair. This is a must! Step 2: comb your hair all back with a fine toothed comb to expose an even amount of hair strands Step 3: take a fingers worth it Layrite and rub it into your hands Step 4: evenly apply the cream through your hair so that there is good coverage across the entire head. Step 5: re do step 3 and 4 one or two times depending on how thick your hair is
Comb into style and find your parting or just sweep back with a proper pomade comb if you want a swept back look.
Let it dry... Takes about an hour to dry usually.
Re-wet during the day if anything comes out if place to re style.
Needed some cream to keep my unruly hair in place as I was unable to have it cut regularly due to the corona lockdown, and I haven’t used any hair products for many a year. So having taken some advice tried this Layrite cream. Secret is not to use too much. Spread a little on your hands then massage through your hair - then comb in the normal way. Works for me and very pleased, and has a pleasant scent as well. Non greasy so no mess on the pillowcase. Some might say a bit expensive but from the little I have to use it will last me some time.
Although it says Natural Matte if you put too much of it on it'll look shiny, though over time the shine then begins to wear off. Overall it styles my stubborn East Asian hair without any problems and provides the kind of lift and hold I desire that other hair products just aren't able to produce.
Best thing I have used in my hair! My hair arrow straight and difficult to shape or add texture and this is the only thing that really works for me! So a must have for anyone who wants decent hair hahaa
