Layrite Cement Matte Hair Clay for Men 4.25 oz works by binding individual hairs together to thicken and shape styles that stay in place all day. It also washes out easily with water. It is made from a unique combination of four mineral plant and animal waxes (ozokerite tribehenin lanolin and cera alba) chosen for their ability to deliver flexible hold. The product controls frizz and gives definition and separation when warmed and applied lightly. To control cowlicks and frizz smear a tiny amount on the end handle of a rat-tail comb and brush down stubborn areas. Layrite Cement Matte Hair Clay works best with medium to thick hair for creating messy looks and short to medium lengths for structured dry looks.
