Test Results:

Like all Hanz de Fuko products, Claymation is certified organic and paraben-free.  The product feels a little harder than most and will take a little work to emulsify.  It is water soluble but takes a little shampooing to get out.

This product has wicked hold.  You can get a pliable messy type natural look or really lock your style in place depending on how much you use. It’s the perfect styling aid for undercuts, pompadours and quiffs.  It provides height and hold that will stand up all day.  It also has a bit of Quicksand in it, so it also adds separation and texture.  Unlike many pomades, Claymation is entirely matte, very little shine.
