Strong hold / Matte finish texturizing spray

Men's texturizing spray that leaves hair with a strong hold and texture-rich finish.

Customer Reviews

Clay Effect Style Spray is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 32.
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 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 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 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 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 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 1 out of 5 by from This product serves better as an April Fools Joke. Not sure how this even made it to production. Take everything that you like about hair spray, remove it, then intentionally make it worse. You will be left with a product similar to this. It adds no volume, instead ways your hair down. It leaves it sticky and crusty with horrible distribution (sprays like a squirt gun). It adds no volume or texture. I used the products for three days, the first two days, I had comments about how horrible it looked (its that bad). Finally on the third day, after application, I simply decided to be late, once again washing my hair. It is that bad. I really wish I had something positive to say. In fact, I have never left a review before. I needed to warn you. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about it. No constructive criticism, scratch is and start over. Please, just buy yourself hairspray.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a Spray or Clay Product Really unhappy with this purchase. The applicator releases the product in a straight shot with no spray and so you wind up with a clumpy mess. They even sent a second applicator and it's no better. Regardless, even if you try to apply less densely using your hands, it is nothing like a clay product. Much too oily and greasy. Would suggest you try anything else on their website, plenty of their other products are great.

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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 2 out of 5 by from Great product...terrible spray bottle. I really like this product. I use it before applying Baxter's pomade to provide some additional control. However, the liquid comes out in an uncontrollable stream rather than a spray which makes it hard to 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 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 Great Product I've just placed my third order for this product. I absolutely love it. I just wish there was a travel size as well.
