This Heist wax gives my (short) hair great hold that lasts very well throughout the day. It�s easy to wash out and has a pleasant coconut smell. The packaging looks premium and the performance matches up to this.
Finding hair care products that are right first time is a challenge but this is absolutely great.
I have thick hair and this work great, works in well and certainly holds and allows me to style and keep it that way.
Its firm but without feeling like I've superglued my hair.
Works in great and washes out fine.
I really like this product. I feel they've got their branding and stance spot on. About three years ago I began replacing as many of my household/cosmetic items as possible with alternatives that are cruelty free. This is quite a process, and over this time I've tried dozens of different brands to try and find the best product for me.
Fortunately in the past 12 months or so, there has been a large increase in men's cosmetics that are cruelty-free. I have several brands that I rotate between, depending on current pricing/offers etc.
I came across this brand HEiST on Amazon and was pleased to see that they're certified cruelty-free, their products are also made in the U.K. and use 100% Recyclable packaging - these are two great bonuses in my opinion.
The clay itself comes in the familiar 100ml tub used for various hair styling brands, but somehow feels more premium than some rivals. I guess this is probably down to good branding.
The clay is smooth, and rubs well into a damp palm. This is my preferred method for styling my hair, which is short and thick. I find the hold is much better than some other clay products I've tried. It will offer all day hold and styling as long as you don't constantly play with your hair during the day! Washing out is easy, and is something I recommend before bed as can feel quite sticky if you sleep on it!
It has a nice smell - coconut-ty in description, but also I feel like there is a vague hint of Play-Doh in the background, which actually isn't unpleasant at all. Quite a natural scent.
I�ve tried a number of hair products throughout the years. Some fall completely short for the price you pay, some don�t work and others stand up okay. I�d say this matte clay from Heist is in the latter category after using it for a week.
It�s got a nice smell which is great as there is nothing worse than having a scent you don�t like on your head.
My routine is wash, blow dry then apply product. This matte clay works for me in that routine.
I've tried a lot of clays over the last few years, but this is definitely one of my favourites. This is a big 100ml pot, so will last for ages, and I really like the smell.
It is really easy to apply, and you only need a tiny amount. Once applied simply style your hair as required, and HEIST will hold it in place all day. I would definitely agree with the product description, it is firm hold.
Pricewise I think it is exceptionally good value for a hair product that will keep you looking good for many months.
I will definitely be buying more when the time comes, so you can take that as being a high recommendation.
