Creamy to the touch, easy to apply and style with.

    Brilliant product I discovered via MFH. I have thick wavy hair and find clay can be trial and error and at 40 years old I dont want to cut it all off.
    American Crew Matte Clay is easy to style but doesn’t go all sticky and stiff and like many others I’ve tried. Smells good too. Definitely recommend.
