Finding the right product for your hair can be painful. Since finding this product I have been able to cut back on what I use and how. The Texturizing Taffy left my hair heavy and greasy looking even with a small amount. Mousse, gels, blowout creams, putty, I just couldn't get a consistent look. I have fine and thin hair that I wear in a pixie cut. I use this product after blow-drying hair to style. Doesn't take much. Hair looks shinny and healthy and not weighed down. Just light hairspray after to set and I'm done. Love this product and love the results!
I used this product for a few years and loved it. Within the past year, it has either been unavailable or what I get is not what I was use to. It is not the clear color and it has liquid at the bottom of the jar. I tried it in my hair and it was a sticky mess. I will return.

This stuff is horrible. I put a little in my palm and rubbed my hands together and it felt sticky and when I put it in my hair, what a sticky mess it became. What a waste of money!!

Nothing like it used to be. During the pandemic they removed it & when they brought it back it had been reformulated. Now it's a sticky, greasy mess. I thought it was just me until I read other reviews. I've had to seek a different product.

I'm not sure why Kenra changed the formulation of this product but it is nothing like it was previously. I've used this product since they introduced it on the market and have loved it! Nothing compared to it. During the pandemic they removed it from their products and when they brought it back it had been reformulated. Now it's a sticky, greasy mess. I thought it was just me until I read other reviews. I've had to seek an alternative brand that compares to what this product used to be.

Perfect Pixie Paste

Great to style my hair
Karib from Wisconsin
Agree with other reviewers that the formula has changed. Clear paste is not the right name anymore. It is milky and leaves hair sticky.
Kymmer from Buffalo, NY
I've used and LOVED this product for over 6-7 years and literally couldn't live without. Recently this product has been horrible! Cloudy and sticky, makes my hair coarse, heavy, and completely unmanageable and workable. So disappointed and disgusted.

This is NOT a good product for thin/fine hair
Robyn from Sandusky, Ohio
This is very thin. Seems like it had been watered down or something. Doesn't work at all.

My very thick, chin-length, wavy hair needs this soft hold and shiny gloss to look its best. It's a great styling aid for when I wake up with waves going in every direction and don't want to shampoo my hair. I also buy it for my husband, whose very thin hair tends to be flyaway but is easily tamed with this clear paste.

I have used this product and Kenra Mousse and styling spray for years on my pixie cut. The last jar I purchased was runny and not a clear paste all. It also had a very unpleasant odor. I am really disappointed Kenra changed the formula. I have read other reviews and others have said the same thing.

I have tried several control paste products by different brands. I have been using a product that cost twice as much as this one. My hair dresser used this on me and I loved the smell, so I tried it and I love it....even more than the expensive product I had been using. I love the smell and it provides just the right amount of hold for my thick, short hair.

I have used this product for a few years but these jars had product that had deteriorated in consistency. Returned them.

i bought this to slick my baby hairs/part flyaways down for cute low buns, ponies, and claw clip styles. works perfectly, flexible hold is true its not crunchy at all and my hair still feels like hair, but these little baby hairs are def NOT moving. it smells incredible (not sure why people are saying it smells bad, it literally smells like sweet strawberries), and NO FLAKES which has been such a struggle for me to find. overall 10/10

I had a really hard time finding a replacement for Short Sexy Hair Quick Change which worked perfectly for my hair but this is my new favorite product! It works better than Kenra Texturing Taffy, Whipped Taffy, Matte Texture Putty, or Working Wax for me.
Sandy from Texas
A little goes a long way . Leaves my hair shiny and controlled smelling great.
Tallgal from Ohio
Even if this paste worked in my hair I would never use it due to the horrible smell. It smells like formaldehyde! And the consistency was not what I expected. Thought it would be a paste but was more of a gel. Awful product!
Kat from NE Florida
I bought this in the hopes it would be like Rusk Pro Polish03 Gloss Wax that has been discontinued. It is not even close.
Too sticky and the shimmer is just not there.
Preacher's Wife from State College
I see only one other comment about smell. The texture and workability are great - I have a very short cut. It's not gunky or greasy. A little bit goes a long way. Their other products smell great... Not sure why this one has to smell so gross. I'm disappointed bc it fits the bill in every other way.
Pam from IN
I have tried to use this to see if I could get used to the smell. It smells as bad now as the first day I tried it.
Dru from Oklahoma City
Easy to use, makes my hair stay in the style I want, recommend using the Kenra hairspray #30 With it

Whenever I have a short hair style, this is the product I like the best.
