The first thing you need to know about Dirt Texturizing Paste by Jonathan Product is that it doesn't make your hair look dirty — or even like it has product in it. I say this because when I mentioned Dirt ($26) in a recent post, some readers were wary of what stylist Jonathan Antin says about the product: "There's something amazing about the way hair looks and behaves the day after — washing that is."
But do not be frightened: Dirt is, hands down, one of the most wonderful styling products I've ever had the pleasure of dipping my fingers into. I don't like having dirty hair, but the fact is that freshly washed, light and wispy hair just isn't very manageable. That's where Dirty comes in, so read more
I know women with all sorts of hairstyles who love Dirt, though it seems to serve slightly different functions depending on your hair types. On short hair, it acts more like a sculpting paste, while long hair looks more polished and fashionably piece-y. Even better, it's incredibly light, so it won't cause buildup and lets your hair move naturally. And lest you be scared off by the price tag, a single jar lasts forever.
