Jonathan Silky Dirt

I received a sample of Jonathan Silky Dirt awhile back and finally tried it out this week.  I have been using Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shaping Cream and love the flexible hold. 

This shine-enhancing grooming cream is made with essential waters of cucumber and rose to nourish hair. Smoothing Shine Blend helps tame frizz, controls flyaways, and provides thermal protection. Antioxidant rich botanical, thermal and UV filters shield hair from damage and prevent color fading. 

Apply to slightly damp or dry hair to control, define, piece out, and add brilliance. A little goes a long way - emulsify a small amount in your hands before applying. Apply to the hair in sections, focusing on mid-length, through ends.

I was anticipating this would have the same results.  Silky Dirt has a lighter flexible hold and has a soft consistency.  The first thing I noticed was the scent of the product.  While it is a nice smell, it does last throughout the day.  Its almost a candylike scent.  :)  This does hold my hair in place, but its not as strong of a hold as I would like. 

  • Flexible, light hold
  • Smells great
  • Does not create visible build up like some gels & mousse do
  • Smell does not dissapate
  • Product transfers more easily due to lighter consistency
Would I recommend this product?
  • Maybe - the lasting smell is my biggest drawback and the price.
