Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for growing out fine hair! I've been using this product for about 2 months now... And I won't use anything else. I'm in process of going from shiny bald to a longer undercut, and despite my hair spending the past few weeks in the "too long to ignore, too short to do anything with" phase, this product has kept me looking presentable. Now that it's finally getting long enough to style somewhat properly, it's still doing the job perfectly. Has a very good hold, with almost no shine, even in Southern Florida heat and humidity. On the occasions when I want a little bit of shine for a more formal look, I just put a small drop of beard oil in my palm with the paste, and it helps a lot without having to dig around for the jar of stuff my barber sold me that doesn't work as well. The scent is subtle, but a definite improvement from the other stuff I've tried over the past few months. My only suggestion would be to also make it available in a smaller TSA compliant size for those of us who fly a lot. It bothers my OCD when I have to spoon some out into a smaller container to travel with and the big jar looks uneven... Other than that, this stuff is as good as it gets at an excellent price point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh The thickening paste used to smell good then they changed the fragrance Also, to add more confusion, they sell texture paste with the exact same ingredients, bottling, and hold/shine as the thickening paste. So I have no idea what thickening paste I got once that smelled good but neither the texture or thickening paste smells that way anymore

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No hold, just waxy flat hair Here are my specs: 50+ white male with fairly straight s&p hair that has just begun to experience age related thinning. Cut with a 50s style side part with longer hair stacked on top. After one hour, my hair looked like I put a cap on with wet hair and took it off after a few hours. Flat, lifeless, uncontrolled hair. I hoped it would perform at least as well as the P&P clay, but all I got was waxy hair with zero hold. I really wanted to like this, too. Of course, it make work for someone else's hair so YMMV

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hold I used got 2b with the yellow lid for many year's and then couldn't find it any more. I tried so many different pomades and nothing held up. My last try was cremo and it works better than my go to. I wasn't sure if it was made for just men but I love it. I have a short pixie cut so this is a must!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on damp/dry hair! Adds thick/softness Thank you so much for making such an amazing product. It works so well even in damp hair (which not a lot pastes do). Adds good texture / thickness I dont like my hair to look too structured and crusty and this is perfect on my mid lentgth hair for a casual side part. The consistency when mixed with damp hair works well on my fine straight asian hair. The fact that its not loaded with Mineral Oil is awesome too. Dont ever change this formula that works wonders :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The light at the end of the tunnel I cut my hair short for the first time on my 19th birthday. After months of struggling with girly products my family reccomended I found Cremo hair paste! It was just what I needed! It does lose hold if you keep touching your hair but that's not too much of a problem for me. I just appreciate the low shine and high hold without making my hair feel too heavy and gross!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the Barbershop!! I have tried dozens and dozens of products and this is easily best for the money!! Does the same great job as their barbershop competitors which are double or triple the price!! Thank You Cremo for making a Superior Product for a reasonable price!! You have a loyal customer in me!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ll be back for more Your ad found me on YouTube last night and after reading the reviews on this product it sounded like just what I needed to finally pull off throwing all my hair back, even the stubborn parts growing forward. I’m very pleased and I’ll buy it again when I’m out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hair Product Ever Before using this I thought out I was the guy with bad hair. Nope, turns out I was the guy with the bad hair products. Now, I'm the pinnacle of good hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Thickening/Texture Paste There Is I searched for a long time and spent hundreds of dollars (literally) trying to find the right texture paste for my shorter style wavy and wiry hair. I tried texture pastes from fancy to budget to imported and everything in between. They were all basically crap or had certain aspects that worked, but weren’t the complete package hair product. Early in my search I eyed Cremo Thickening Paste, but didn’t try it until I had already flushed a lot of time and money down the drain. Ya, kicking myself. Cremo Thickening paste is the REAL deal. It is easy to find/purchase, has excellent hold, doesn’t finish hard or crunchy, it smells great (clean and light), easily emulsifies and works through my hair, helps my hair look and feel thicker/fuller, has the perfect amount of natural/low shine, washes out easily, doesn’t irritate my scalp, has all day and even into the next day performance, it delivers the absolute best textured style of any product out there...period, and last but not least my wife loves it in my hair. Not only is it the best, but you can buy it for under $15! What? I’ve rocked it with damp hair, dry hair, pre-stylers, finishing sprays on occasion, you name it. It consistently delivers the best modern style and performance hands down. Also, as an added bonus, Cremo is hq’d in Laguna Beach and I like the fact I am supporting a brand in my extended Southern California community.
