Afternoon ladies and gents!
Today I’m sharing with you some thoughts on a new product that I recently tried, the Moroccan Texture Paste by Mister Pompadour. How does this styling aid hold up on my hair? Read on for more!
A few weeks ago the folks over at Mister Pompadour sent me a sample of their texture paste to try out on my fro. Initially, I have to admit that I was pretty hesitant to put a “paste” on my hair. The name just conjures up images of Elmer’s glue in my mind, and to be honest that wasn’t too far from the truth.
The texture of the Mister Pompadour’s paste is pretty much what I expected. Its consistency is thick and paste-like. White in color, the paste is pretty reminiscent of elementary school glue with a pretty sticky feel. Fortunately, that texture doesn’t carry over to application.
To best use the paste, I took out about a nickel sized amount of product with my fingers and then emulsified the product in my hands. Then I ran my hands over the ends of my hair pretty gently.
I’ve used the product on both dry and damp hair and I have to tell you that dry hair is definitely the way to go. Water doesn’t react so favorably with this product. When used on wet hair the paste just doesn’t have that special manageability that it does on mostly dry hair.
In addition to being pretty effective at controlling fly-aways, the product also boasts some very nice key ingredients that I’m sure many of you will love:
Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil – Deep penetrating oil that instantly absorbs into hair producing incredible shine, helps control frizz, softens and aids in curl definition, and conditions hair
Ilex Paraguariensis (Mate) Leaf Extract – Powerful nutrient and antioxidant, rich in vitamins and amino acids that helps condition and protect hair and scalp
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil – Conditions and softens hair while adding great shine
Additionally, the Moroccan Texture paste is free of alcohol and parabens so you know your hair is getting some pretty good stuff!
Overall, I think that Mister Pompadour’s Moroccan Texture paste is a really solid product that delivers on its promise. As an afro-wearing gent I would like a little more shine in my styling products but maybe that’s just me.
