Customer Reviews

Clay Effect Style Spray is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great prestyler I bought this product awhile back when I was first growing out my hair. Its a great product for people with longer hair who want some texture and hold, I would spray about spray about 3 times into the roots t get volume off my head and then I would do and extra two to three sprays in the hand and rub it through the rest of my hair and it did great for what it was made to do. it gave me texture and volume with out making my hair all poofy, dry, and frizzy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing and super clean product! I have a drawer full of hair products--gels, creams, pomades, waxes, etc. that I've tried throughout the years. I really do not like sticky stuff that smells strong or is difficult to wash out. I spray about 3-4 pumps of this into my hands before I use the hair dryer and it creates really cool texture and shape as well as conditions my hair. I really don't need ANY product after I dry it, but sometimes I'll put another 1-2 pumps just to finish off the look I want and add a little more texture and definition. The only downside is the glass bottle, but I usually put it into gym sock and ziploc bag if I have to travel (yeah I know--it's a bit high maintenance, but the sht works)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spray Nozzle Issue - Can't use product(s). Just bought this last weekend (June 16/18). Same issues as everyone else seems to be having that the product doesn't spray or mist out (says spray on the label) and instead just shoots out in a stream so you pretty much can't even use it?! I can't even comment on whether or not the product is good or not because of this issue. Also bought the Daily Moisturizing Conditioner and that product wouldn't even come out of the nozzle so I have to just unscrew the cap and apply it directly out of the bottle. Overall disappointment with the experience considering the price paid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Pump I purchased this product at a store in NYC and it's not a Spray, the liquid points straight to the hair and it doesn't function as the finishing spray they promise it is as it damps the hair again. I see in some reviews that they have fixed the pump but I made my purchase today so it seems like it still is not offering the quality they promised.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit disappointed I bought this after reading some reviews about the pump being fixed. I'm not exactly sure if the product I received had the updated pump, because it is shooting out a pretty compact stream in my hair. The way this is dispensing makes it impossible to use as anything other than a pre-style on wet hair. I tried it the first time attempting to spray on styled dry hair for the extra hold and texture but it only made my hair look like a grease pit since the spray was still a concentrated stream. Had to wet hair and start over again. The next time I used it on wet hair, blow dried and styled and worked pretty well. Nothing much better than previously used pre styles. It would be a much better product if it could spray a very fine, and wide mist like the shave tonic. Not sure at this point if it's worth re purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome Idea, Not So Awesome Pump I bought this item at my local hair supply store and was so excited to use this product but the pump doesn't spray like a normal spray, it sprays almost like a water gun would which makes it kind of annoying to spray into your hair. If the pump was better this product would be 5/5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Absolutely love this stuff. Way easier to deal with than clay and has the same effect. This will be my go to product for everyday use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hey Baxter... How about sending replacement spray nozzles to those loyal customers (like me) who received the original model that no-worky? Haven't been able to use it for months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hoping they updated the bottle Bought this product when it was first released and was disappointed that it would shoot streams of the liquid. I’ve been using it by spreading it in my hands then applying it. It has a good hold. Hoping they did fix the bottle issue

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pre-Styler I have pretty thick hair, so I typically apply about 5 sprays to towel dry hair and I’m left with a natural finish and some great texture! Depending on how I’m feeling, I will leave it as it is or apply a little clay to finish it off. Either way, this product works great! And I appreciate the fact it doesn’t have a strong scent like other brands so it doesn’t compete with my cologne.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pump Issue I picked up the Clay Effect Style Spray really excited about this product. Unfortunately I am having the same issue as I see a bunch of other people have - the spray pump doesn't spray as much as it just shoots a stream of product. Pretty disappointed cause it seems like it could be a great product...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for everyone Wanting to try something new, I went a head and tried the spray. I need to say that the shipping of it was perfect and It didn't come broken or leaking. As for the spray itself, I think it works best for longer style hair like the gentleman in the video. My hair is thick and about two to three inches long. When I have the spray about 12 inches from my head to get a good area, the mist gets on my ears, neck, and even my mirror and sink. The spray is wide and the product is thick, so that any over spray creates sticky spots on you or your furniture. I ended up just spraying the product in my hands, but for me it holds more like a hair spray and I have to end up using another product any ways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been using this product for about a week now and I have been loving it. It is a great prestyler and gives me great hold

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They fixed it!!! So I originally purchased this product a couple months ago and as the other reviews stated the pump wouldn’t function properly, as was the case with mine. I left a review stating how disappointed I was, especially since I love their products. So someone from the Baxter reached out and tell me they fixed the pump issue and they would send me one for free, (Great customer service btw). When I received the revised pump it worked perfectly! The pump sprays and I couldn’t be happier, because I loved the original idea of this product. Definitely earned a lifelong customer after this experience! (Old pump on left, New pump on right)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic new product I tried this after receiving a small sample of it. It's fantastic. I do not use it alone, but mix it with a soft gel. The hold is perfect, and it does give the hair a nice shine. It is very unique in it's texture, but worth a try.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this is an alternative! Really love baxter's forward-thinking for grooming products. This works really nicely on my hair - especially since it comes in liquid form. For me, it's a little easier to work in comparison to the traditional pomades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pre styler This is easily the most unique pre styler that I have ever used. It has essential oils that keep your hair smooth and healthy, while the clay aspect provides amazing texture to the hair. It won't make your hair feel dry as many sea salt sprays do, and it has a slight shine that prevents your hair from looking too matte. It sets a great foundation for your finishing product by providing initial hold that allows you to use less of your post styler. Pair this with any Baxter pomade and you will be good to go for the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Bought this hoping it would be similar to sea salt spray with a little more hold. I've only been able to use the spray a few times, but so far its performing exactly how I hoped for. My hair is in that in between area where too much product and it looses its waves and goes flat. The spray holds it just enough to let my hair get wavy while looking natural. I was a bit nervous about other reviews saying the sprayer was faulty, but so far mine is working perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spray is terrible I have no idea if this product works or not. The spray did not work, came out in 1 stream and left my hair greasy. They sent me another sprayer and still same issue. Ended up throwing bottle away because ended up being useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid Until Spray Issue is Fixed I recently received this as part of the Winter Cobalt Set and was disappointed to find out the issues with the spray bottle have not been corrected. The spray does not mist like in the videos but more of a stream. I tried using the product by spraying it in my hands but don't feel it has the same effect as I comb it through my hair. The nozzle doesn't look blocked and after ~20 sprays still doesn't mist. I am usually really satisfied with all of the products I purchase from Baxter of California and hesitated to write a negative review. I emailed customer service about 3 weeks ago but have not received a response on the issue. I would avoid this product since I have not been able to use it more than a few times due to the spray defect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unimpressed The product shoots out - it does not spray unlike what they show in the video. You practically have to spray it in your hands first to distribute evenly. Terrible customer service. I know it's the holidays but they say they will get back to you in 48 hours - it's been two weeks... 3 emails from me... no response from Baxter. i like their clay but I do not think i will ever be buying again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great potential, but not perfect I love the idea of this product, and I think what is inside the bottle is exactly what I was looking for and what they were going for. But the problem is I have to agree with the other users, the spray bottle just doesn't seem to work with this product. Maybe it has something to do with the thickness of the liquid? But it definitely sprays out in a single stream, and not a spray I was expecting. It it came out in a spray, more like a hairspray bottle does, I think this would be perfect. As it is, I have resorted to spraying it into my hands first and running them through my hair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sample bottle works fine Love this product but as all the reviews stated the bottle doesn’t distribute in a mist, product comes out in a direct stream. I received a free sample of this from Baxter in a small bottle that pumps out the product in a perfect mist. I just pour from the big bottle it comes in into the sample bottle. How could we purchase the sample bottles?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bottle defect I love the idea of this product since I have curly hair. Unfortunately as some of the other comments have said, the bottle doesn’t spray, it just squirts in a direct stream. I wanted to love this product but I wouldn’t recommend it after this experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does Not Spray Hairdresser's bottle worked great, spray provided good hold evenly in hair. Liked the product so much that I picked a bottle up myself. Unfortunately my bottle only squirts, seems like the that spray applicator may be defective. From other reviews this seems like a common problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product didn't live up to expectations I was quite happy and excited to order this item however it didn't live up to my expectations, which are quite high for Baxter of California products. Stick to the clay pomade, it will give your hair much better body and hold than the clay effect style spray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product I've been looking for my whole life When I first heard about this rumored product, I knew it couldn't be real. I'd been waiting and waiting for Baxter to release something like this, and when I saw their post about a July release, I was beyond thrilled. I recently ordered their face wash, toner, and face scrub and wished the product had been released before I placed my order. I just opened my shipment, and almost fell over when I saw they put a sample size of this seemingly unreleased dream product I had been waiting for. Now come to find out the product has been released, I can't even begin to say how awesome it is. I've used my small sample every day, and can't get over how perfect it is. You have to purchase this product if you have medium to long hair because without it, your life won't be complete. If you have thin hair on the shorter side and need a prestyler because your pomade just doesn't last all day, you MUST add this to your routine. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait a few weeks till my next paycheck to be able to grab the full bottle. Maybe I'll get lucky and Baxter will love my enthusiasm so much I might get a bottle for free! But I have not been compensated for this review yet, so it is as raw and truthful as it gets. This is by far the best brand, and the best product on the market. It should be a staple in every guys arsenal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a spray! I bought this when it first came out and used maybe twice..was going to use as a finishing spray but pointed at my hair and it shot out a straight stream into on thick wet spot..thought it was the bottle so bought a spray bottle from Walmart and transfered it and it still came out in a stream. Then poured it back into bottle and put water in spray bottle and it misted out..this clay spray must be too thick to come out as a spray..I love Bacter products but im disappointed in this one..i was looking forward to this product to use instead of hair spray
