Big fan of Lockhart’s and their hair product range. The Lockhart’s Matte Clay is good but it isn’t great. It’s a solid product but I wouldn’t necessarily reach for it. This product really does require layering to get your desired style and being quite dry, doesn’t have a great hold, at all.

How To Use

A top tip from Lockhart’s is to apply a small amount into blow-dried hair. Keep applying until the desired style is achieved. After drying with heat, use a cold setting on your hairdryer to finish which will allow the product to be absorbed into the hair and create a matte finish. The product should provide a medium hold and will let you move and style it using your fingers.

    The Lockharts matte clay was user friendly for my hair type which is thick and straight. I only liked the product when I was able to go for sleek hairstyles and if I use this product for messy styles then I wouldn’t work because it makes my hair way to greasy. The medium hold is spot on and at least it has a better hold than Layrite Cement clay for sure. However, I have used other clays that have a better finish and hold than this such as the other Lockhart’s Fire and Brimstone matte clay and Cavalier Clay Blumaan. The Fire and Brimstone version of the matte clay gives a better hold and structure to the hair without any fail.
