Why people love it
  • The manly sage smell makes people flip
  • It's a lightweight and soft product
  • Controls hair rather than holds it for a natural appeal
Drawbacks, not dealbreakers

Unfortunately, doesn't offer a lot of support - it's better known for keeping everything under control.


If you’ve got that thick, healthy hair that most men dream of having, this styling cream is likely to be a winner for you. Think of it as your mother's spit shine and groom, without having to suffer through her ever doing that again. But, keep in mind this adds serious shine to dull locks. It's a lightweight product that you're sure to fall in love with.

Even though this doesn’t have the strongest hold, it’s likely to be too much for super-fine hair. It’s likely to add plenty of shine, so it’s not great for guys with a lot of natural scalp oils. If you fall into right hair texture, though, you can expect flexibility to reshape your style without too much hold.

Application: Not too dry and not too wet please; this product should be applied to freshly washed and towel-dried hair.

Who’s It For: Got thick, dry hair? This is likely to be your go-to styling cream.

Why We Love It: This is another fantastic-smelling product. And, it’s one of the few creams that can manage thick hair. If it wasn’t on the high-end of the price spectrum, we would love it even more.

What Reviewers Say:

  • Good product for medium length hair. Shorter hair may need stronger hold. I like the smell. Natural, organic feeling hair product. I like this company, it's kind of high end Tom's of Maine. Worth a shot if your hair is at least 2.5 inches long, maybe 3.
  • I really is so amazing, my wife is stealing it from me. It doesn't give the "wet" look like other styling cream. Your hair looks clean and alive.
  • The smell is awesome. They say it is "sage", but it smells a lot sweeter than that. Whatever it is, it's amazing.
    The hold of the cream is perfect. Not too firm and not too little.
    The cream doesn't come off the hair - when you run your fingers through it, you don't get hardly any residue. This means that, unlike gel and similar products, you don't feel like you need to wash it off to be comfortable.
