I wanted to say thanks again to @gerald.ong_ for sending me their latest release - orchid texture paste to try. Iโ€™ve been wanting to try the brand!

The label is neat and beautiful as it has a metallic grey colour and the orchid graphic really brings out the products name. The design is well executed.

The scent is black orchid which has a pleasant floral, woody scent. It just has the right balance so itโ€™s not subtle or overpowering.

The paste is smooth so you just need some slight pressure to be able to scoop it. It also breaks down nicely with a good amount of grips and dryness.

The paste is easy to apply with just slight grips but if I apply with a normal scoop each time, it will weight my hair down easier. It took me a couple of days to test it well so I could find the best way for me to use it. The best amount for me to use is three dime-sized scoops as this gives me enough hold without weighing my hair down and still be able to achieve great texture and volume.

This is a great matte finish paste. It doesnโ€™t take away my natural hair shine. Well done!

The hold I get is a firm hold but this will decrease to medium loose hold in about 4 hours. This means my volume decreases but it still holds in shape.

Restyle is not hard but I just canโ€™t get the good result. In my experience, it flattens the shape of my hair and it loses the shape. This is the one thing I donโ€™t like on dry product as sometimes itโ€™s just canโ€™t be restyled.

Wash out is easy and just requires one round of shampoo.

Overall, itโ€™s a great well balance dry matte paste! It will definitely work better and last longer on shorter hair/ other hair type. But I do enjoy using it. The initial result I get is amazing and the scent wowed me! Iโ€™m sure I will have to pick up tropics matte clay next and I hope the brand will release UWB pomade in future!
