I have really enjoyed using the new clay by UpperCut Deluxe. Slightly waxy in consistency, it easily emulsifies in the hands for smooth and even distribution.
The product adds loads of gritty texture to the hair and although it has a strong hold, it can be reworked with ease during the day. I personally think this will be best suited to guys with shorter to mid-length hair. The matte finish will give the hair a textured, lived-in look.
Compared to the UpperCut Deluxe Matte Clay, the Clay gives a more noticeable amount of texture; and it’s also slightly easier to wash out.
What They Say
This delicate balance of wax and water-based ingredients allows the product to hold firm, without setting hard meaning the product remains reworkable throughout the day.
These wax elements also bring an anti-humidity complex to the formula allowing the product to maintain it’s structure when exposed to low levels of heat– be it in the gym or even just a hot day.
Clay creates a low shine finish through a combination of ingredients that gently disrupt the cuticle layer of the hair. This disruption means that light is absorbed, rather than reflected create a matte finish effect.
Uppercut Deluxe Clay is a strong hold product with a natural finish that is easily reworked throughout the day and just as importantly, washed out at the end. Clay will tame hair short or long, adding texture and control to a diverse range of styles.
