Firsthand's Texturizing Clay was designed for textured messy relaxed styles. Don't let the thickness of this clay fool you. After application the lightweight and smooth formula makes it feel like there is nothing in your hair while also providing enough hold to keep your hair malleable and locked into place throughout the day.
**Formerly known as the "Styling Clay". Same functionality and application. Updated packaging, scent, and name.**
What it does well:
- Neutral finish with a medium hold.
- Perfect for textured/messy/relaxed styles without any shine.
- Works with all hair types.
- Lightweight, feels like nothing in the hair.
- Washes out with just water.
Kaolin Clay: This clay gently cleanses hair and scalp, without excessive drying. It stimulates blood circulation and gently exfoliates the scalp while cleansing. Kaolin clay strengthens hair, improves elasticity, and helps repair damaged hair. It soothes the scalp, helps treat dandruff, and encourages hair growth.
Shea Butter: Helps with hair growth, soothes an irritated scalp, and works as an anti-dandruff remedy. (An irritated scalp can lead to itching and eventually dandruff.) Tames unruly hair, protects hair from damage, heat protection, and moisturizes the hair.
Jojoba Oil: This oil moisturizes the scalp and may be a dandruff remedy. Jojoba is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish hair, including vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin E, copper, and zinc. Because it strengthens hair, it is also thought that jojoba oil can prevent hair loss and promote hair thickness.
Scent (essential oil blend): Bergamot, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Wormwood, Palo Santo

In terms of result I would say not quite as good compared to other products such as the Arcadian Clay Pomade.
One of the best I've used.
Great hold, not so greasy and easy to wash off!
