What Shear Revival Say…

Northern Lights Matte Paste was created out of our love for natural texture and looks in the hair care industry. Getting my start in the salon industry, creating a product like this has always been a goal for me. I truly believe we’re bridging a gap between healthy home-brewed & chemical based cosmetic lab-made products. We always get the job done with the hair & scalps health in mind.

For best results: Northern Lights should be applied in dry hair. The product stays malleable all day and washes out 100% with shampoo.

    Could you explain the difference between this product and Crystal Lake? I’m not sure which one to buy.

  • Kai says:

    Doesn’t work too well for my thick hair. The hold is not sufficient, it’s overly sticky to apply. I love the packaging and smell, but would not buy it again..

    One of my favorite products for sure. Absolutely love the scent. Kind of smells like fruit loops imo. Great everyday product but have noticed that its very easy to use too much and less is defiantly more.

    I’ve been using Northern Lights for a few weeks now and I’ve been enjoying it. I have just over 8 inches of thick asian hair. I style in a messy quiff typically, and I’m honestly surprised how well this products works. Of course I use hairspray because of my hair length, but still my hair feels absolutely great throughout the day. I typically use clay products, but this this is a nice change with similar results. No significant complaints about Northern Lights, I recommend it to anyone looking up to try a lighter product but doesn’t want to lose out the benefits of a clay.
