Review: Dirt Texturizing Paste by Jonathan Product

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

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.

Vegan means that it doesn't contain any animal derived products (such as honey, beeswax, ect.) Be forewarned though, all Jonathan Antin products are vegan EXCEPT dirt. Sad, sad!

I am always looking for good products for my hair. It's short so texture is always key. Thanks for the tip Bella!

i love dirt. yes, it does last for a very long time (my jar lasted a whole year) but it still hurts knowing you are forking over 26 bucks for hair gunk. word on the street is that costco sells it for much less then sephora does, but i have yet to see it at my local costo. keep your eyes peeled!

I have long, super-fine hair and, when I tried Dirt, it made me look SO greasy; like I hadn't showered in days. I'm not a fan, but maybe I was just not using it properly. Tutorial, anyone?

What great timing for this review. I ordered some (along with it's companion Silky Dirt) last Friday and have been frantically watching the mailbox every day for it's arrival! I'm glad to see it get a great review; that makes me much happier about paying the shipping and exchange.

hmm, maybe i'll have to try it then. i read some bad reviews online, but i have really been layering styling products lately to get my clean hair, well, more dirty... summer is the worst for flyaways, and i just gave myself some dumb bangs and now i have to deal with the consequences. i might pick this up this weekend...

I was just looking at this product on It's good to hear that it doesn't make your look dirty because that's what I was afraid of.

I bought it a few years ago when it first came out- I used to have short hair and found myself using it more than, than I do now with longer hair. It's great for fly-aways, but sometimes if I didn't rub it in well enough in my palms, it would leave white streaks (well, goldish, the color of the product) in my hair. I'm chalking that to my inexperience with a denser product (im usually a gel/mouse girl) and not dirt itself. has anyone tried his liquid dirt?

I thought since he uses it on long hair that it wouldn't work with my short, textured hair but it actually works so much better than any other manipulator/palmade I've used. I also like that it lasts FOREVER! It's a little pricey, but the fact that it never seems to run out makes it worth the cost! When he says his products are Vegan though, does that mean they are all natural or not tested on animals? Or just don't contain any meat? :)
