So I really like this product. I have pretty much always stuck to matte, no shine hair products, since my hair is naturally black and also very fine, so anything with shine to it just tends to look greasy in my hair. But I decided to give this a whirl, and I'm glad that I did. So first off, the product description is that it has a "natural" look, and it's pretty apt, since it neither adds shine, nor mattifies. The product also claims that it's a good pre-styler, and that it cocktails well with other products. As for using it as a pre-styler, I did find it a bit heavy, at least for my fine hair. However, I will say that it works fantastic on its own or with other products. It's not greasy, it's not heavy, and it allows you to manipulate your hair without setting hard or too quickly. The hold level is shown as being a 4 out of 5, which I will say I think is a bit off, as I would say this is a 3 going on 4. It's best suited to messier styles, because while it will give you good control, it's not going to defy gravity. The scent is pretty subtle and not something you are going to really notice, for better or worse. Overall, I would have given this a 4.5 rating, but the site doesn't allow that, so I gave it a 5
Cant be beat for smoothing and controlling unruly hair
use this as a pre-styler before blow drying. gives thickness and control to hair before adding a finisher. i will say that it is key on the level of dampness your hair is before applying; if too wet the product i find will come off as shiny and greasy feeling.. sometimes i will blow dry a bit before applying and then continue with the blow drying process. also, love the smell of the meraki paste.
Blumaan Original Styling Meraki went beyond my expectations in terms of ease of application and durability of the product’s hold. It smells amazing with a slight hint of mint and it is not overpowering. Although it is a reformulated product with a smoother application, I would say that it does tug a tiny bit even with the thickest of hairs.
