When I go to apply the Matte Paste it ends up flaking off into my hands. What is the best way to prevent this from happening?
A: What makes O’Douds Matte Paste extremely unique is its creamy consistency and ability to be easily rinsed-out and cleansed from the hair. This consistency is made possible by an intricate blend of water, kaolin clay, and other waxes/oils. If O’Douds Matte Paste is too vigorously pressed into the hands, the water, waxes, and oils in the product get absorbed into the palms. When this happens, O’Douds Matte Paste will not function as it is intended. For the best results, we suggest gently spreading a smooth layer of product onto the palms and then spreading it evening through the hair. You will then experience every ingredient and the true design of O’Douds Matte Paste.
What is the difference between your Dry Wax and Matte Paste?
A: Although both O’Douds Dry Wax and O’Douds Matte Paste do not add shine to the hair, each product differs in function, strength, and sheen level. O’Douds Dry Wax is our strongest holding product in the line. It provides maximum control and maintains the hair's natural sheen, making it ideal for shaping the hair into any style. O’Douds Matte Paste offers a firm hold that maintains shape all day but still moves. This product provides lift and volume that continues to flow while reducing the natural sheen level of the hair to a matte finish.
How can I recycle my jar?
A: All of our jars, lids, and bottles are easily recycled. We recommend researching your local guidelines on separating recycled materials, drop off center locations, and curbside pick-up schedules. Don’t forget to rinse out the remaining product from your jars and bottles and remove the lid to recycle separately. The Earth thanks you, and so do we.
