MFH says

A truly matte and shine-free hair product, Forte Series Molding Paste by Alex Costa gives the hair a dry, lived-in finish with medium to strong hold.

It’s a little sticky in consistency and application to the hair which causes it to tug a little, but once it’s in it’s really very responsive and easy to style with.

Forte Molding Paste has a dry, sand-like smell with a hint of citrus. It really reminds me of the Hanz De Fuko Quicksand hair product… and even styles a little like it. But I prefer the styling ability and finish of this one!

A really solid launch. Well done to Alex Costa and the Forte Series team.

What They Say:

“The Forte Series Molding Paste offers a strong, pliable hold that will enhance your hairstyle in every aspect. It was carefully crafted for a smooth and weightless application, but provides hold and texture when you most need it.

It delivers a fuller and thicker look for medium to thin hair, and serves as a volumizing pre-styler for all hair types.

The water soluble formula keeps your hair from looking sticky or greasy, and washes out effortlessly.

Designed and made in the U.S.A.. Paraben and sulfates free.”
