What makes it unique

  • Flexible, medium hold keeps your style in place all day while leaving hair feeling soft and natural – not stiff or waxy

  1. Layrite is 5 Stars, this product is 4 Stars

    By Kory on 8th Mar 2017

    Okay so I bought the Natural Matte Cream, the Cement Clay, and Grooming Spray all at once. None of the 3 alone really work for me, but in unison are EXACTLY what I want my hair to look like. Looks clean and non-greasy or stiff, but with great hold for tough winds. It's nice that they offer the small $9 cans too because that's all I need of the Cement. I just put a dab on the front of my hair for extra hold. They offer sample sizes for all products, so there's really no excuse to not just try it.

  2. Great product that does exactly what it is meant to do!

    By Lawrence Tanoury on 6th Mar 2017

    The Natural Matte Cream is exactly the product I've been looking for. Great hold with a natural look and feel. You only need a very little amount to last all day without even feeling like it's there. Apply to dry hair for an even stronger hold. Washes out so easy and doesn't feel like "gook" in your hair. I love it and can't wait to try other products from Layrite.

  3. Great feel and matte finish

    By Eduardo on 5th Mar 2017

    Great feel, matte finish, non-oily and water soluble.
    Works best with dry hair

  4. Layrite's natural matte cream is the best!

    By Cole on 28th Feb 2017

    Layrite's natural matte cream is the best! I have used a few other brands but none of them compare to Layrite!

  5. Fine Hair

    By Slim on 24th Jan 2017

    If you have fine hair this should be your "go to" product!!
    I have plenty of hair only it's fine like baby hair. Just a pea sized amount works in easily and keeps my Pomp popping all day!!

  6. Nice Matt e Finish

    By Tom on 17th Jan 2017

    Finish is what I was looking for. Rinses nicely. Hold is good. Worth it. Wish it held a bit better with first come through.

  7. good but does not hold as i like

    By giancarlo valera on 14th Jan 2017

    It is a little too soft, i think this product is only for people with straigh and thin hair, i have thick hair and this product does not hold my style as i want it.
    I buy it because the natural mate but like i said it is too soft to hold my hair

  8. Did not like

    By Unknown on 18th Dec 2016

    Did not like the texture,or how it made my hair look. I'll stick to the original

  9. Excellent Everyday Product

    By Corey on 16th Dec 2016

    Perfect product if you want something that will hold your hair in place but leave it soft and able to be re-styled. I like to run my hands through my hair a lot throughout the day and this will let you do that while still maintaining the shape you want. Excellent smell as well. When you need a stronger hold, go with the cement. Very similar, but definitely stronger.

  10. incredible

    By Unknown on 14th Dec 2016

    This stuff is amazing as always! Never lets me down when I want a more loose hairstyle

  11. Great product for difficult hair

    By Unknown on 14th Dec 2016

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son who is VERY particular about what he uses on his hair so I'm giving this a 5 star rating based on him

  12. Great Finish stays nice all day

    By BT on 9th Dec 2016

    Excellent product, I love the way it isn't shiny, holds but is not stiff and stays ok to the touch

  13. this stuff is great

    By Sean m joiner on 8th Dec 2016

    Does exactly what it says, medium hold low sheen. Smells great also!

  14. It's ok

    By Ivan Rodriguez on 8th Dec 2016

    I have thick wavy hair, the cream to me does not provide enough hold as the pomades. Smells great but I think this works better on other types of hair. I do like the fact that it looks like you don't have any product on.

  15. Great product!

    By Moe on 7th Dec 2016

    First time using Layrite. So far the product has been great! I like the texture and blends nicely into hair to style. Plus it smells pretty really good...

  16. The Best!

    By robinsalyers@gmail.com on 22nd Nov 2016

    Hold is strong and easy to style. Great product!

  17. alright

    By Sam on 16th Oct 2016

    It's smells good but doesn't hold well

  18. Great for Summer or Daily Use

    By SZNyC on 13th Oct 2016

    Saw that it was a cream which sounded like it was easy to apply. Once I used it it held my short to medium wavy hair in place either pushed back (like a pomp) or combed to the side (with a part /w/ or w/o a pomp).
    But restyling it was easy with hands or with a wide tooth comb. Definitely my go to hair product for warm weather, gym, work or just day to day. 4 Starts because it does start to come somewhat not too much apart after like 8 or so hours, but a reapplication definitely works. I recommend this for people with wavy hair. (I can't say for curly or straight/fine hair ). My hair is thick and wavy. My review is all over the place, I apologize. Give this Product a shot.

  19. Absolutely Perfect!

    By Steve on 22nd Sep 2016

    All I can say is wow!! I am a devoted Layrite customer and thought it couldn't get better than cement but I was completely wrong. Natural matte is the perfect hair product for any hair style. I have extremely thick, poofy hair that can be extremely difficult to tame but this stuff works beautifully. All day hold paired with a natural feel and you can re style throughout the day! Layrite couldn't have done a better job on this one!

  20. With Layrite Natural Matte Cream, my hair looks hot AF

    By Mike on 17th Sep 2016

    I was originally a little skeptical about the Natural Matte Cream because my hair is a little longer than what was shown in the demo video, but man, is this stuff amazing! It goes in easily and evenly and keeps my hair in place all day. I think I finally found the hair product I'm going to use indefinitely. Keep up the good work, Layrite!

  21. Its Good, Real Good

    By Unknown on 9th Sep 2016

    To put it simply, this stuff is amazing. I can't say I've really experienced a downside to it. It goes in easy, I personally pair it with the Layrite Grooming Spray, but even alone it's got a solid hold, and though a little different from the other pomades, it's got a great scent! It's pretty versatile too, so works with a lot of different styles.Why they didn't coin the term "miracle cream" for this stuff is beyond me.

  22. great back up

    By Jerry Bladescc on 8th Sep 2016

    I really like the natural Matte Cream as a back up to the original. It doesn't hold as "tight" as the original layrite, so I like to use it for a less formal look. It gives my hair a more laid back, natural look. I work it in with my fingers and out the door I go! Personally, I like to use my original layrite sparingly, and this is the perfect back up.

  23. #HoldGoals

    By Dunks on 5th Sep 2016

    Soft and creamy. Aromatic, and just the right amount of hold. Feels much more natural and like I'm taking better care of my hair by using it.

  24. Highly Recommend

    By joe on 31st Aug 2016

    I heard about this through Ian Mccalls podcast at a time when I was looking for a new pomade after the last company I used kinda did a 180 on service. This did not disappoint. Great quality product and was here before the expected time! (Not 2 weeks after like some others)

  25. The best product i use

    By Dallas W Bond on 22nd Aug 2016

    It works great, holds how I like it too. It smells great and washes out so easily. Super lightweight. A++

  26. The best hair product i have found so far

    By Will on 20th Aug 2016

    I have been looking for a water based hair product for a long time with a good hold. I have finally found it with Layrite! I really enjoy this product and have found it to be the best for my needs, a great product!

  27. Happy Customer!

    By Dustin on 17th Aug 2016

    I will be using the Natural Matte Cream for now on. I love how easy it is to distribute through your hair. You don't have to work hard to style your hair with this product. The Natural Matte is a must. Layrite has done it again!

  28. PERFECT.

    By S Nathan Roberts on 15th Aug 2016

    I tried Layrite Cement, and although I liked it, the hold was a bit too stiff for me. My hair is stick straight (Muscogee Indian) so I need something with a bit more pliable hold. This was perfect. At first, I thought it felt way too "creamy" and I really didn't think it was going to be a strong enough hold. I was wrong. Goes on easy, holds shape, and washes out of hair and off hands easily. Perfect.

  29. Very good!

    By Phans on 9th Aug 2016

    It's amazing

  30. Over Priced but only product that works for me

    By Joey C on 31st Jul 2016

    It's a bit greaser then i expected to the touch, but this paste is the best I can find. I used to use Surf Head but they changed the distribution location changed and it was never the same.

    This paste keeps my hair in place and doesn't over due it with any greasy look. It would have gotten 5 stars if the price wasn't 18 for a 4 oz. Surf Head was $6 for over 4oz and looked just as good if not better.

  31. Natural Matte

    By Tom on 29th Jul 2016

    Woks well. Still fiddling with it to get best results but so far so good

  32. white lightning

    By Eric G on 19th Jul 2016

    Love love love this new Layrite cream. It's as if the gods themselves hand crafted this and gifted us with it! This stuff is the best I've ever used!

  33. the next best thing from layrite

    By Unknown on 5th Jul 2016

    been using the Superhold for a while. wanted the matte finish for so long. surprised how nice the hold is. product is nice and lightweight; also don't have to use much to get really great results. hair looks like a million bucks!

  34. layrite on top again

    By Chris on 30th Jun 2016

    I've bounced around a few different products over the last few years but the crew at layrite has men's products locked down!! Here for good this time around. Good stuff.

  35. Their Best Yet!

    By Anthony on 27th Jun 2016

    This is exactly the perfect cream for what I need. It hold all day without weighting my hair down and smells even better than the regular lay rite cream. I will probably never use another cream the rest of my life. Not to mention the awesome golden lid and jar it comes in 5++++

  36. absolutely incredible

    By Unknown on 27th Jun 2016

    This stuff is great! So easy to restyle! Love it!

  37. My day-off do.

    By Joshua Hunt on 27th Jun 2016

    Love the stuff. Not all that different from the Original. Firm hold, but not as stiff. I've been using it as a more "casual" variant. Do recommend.

  38. Natural Matte. Greatness.

    By Kyle on 25th Jun 2016

    I've been looking for a product that gives you a firm hold, yet doesn't look wet or shiny for so long now, but I just can't find a company that has got it right. Layrite nailed it on the head with this product. Looks great, doesn't make your hair hard and crunchy and because it's a water based produced, it combs/washes out like nothing. Gives your hair a nice styled matte finish, or even a lazy chilled out look with exceptional hold. The only regret I have with this product is not buying the bigger container. Highly recommend!

  39. Wow

    By Vincene Lewis on 25th Jun 2016

    This is the best selling product in my Barber Shop. The lightweight cream formula is a dream come true. Thanks Layrite!

  40. Layrite has done it again!

    By Nate Guerrero on 24th Jun 2016

    I was very anxious to try the new "Natural Matte Cream" I regularly use Cement and I love that product as well. But when j heard about this new coming product. I was excited. I read in the discription that it's very easy to style with right out of the shower. This is 100% true and I love that! I also prefer Matte finishes. So this product is great for me. Well done Layrite

  41. Comparing to their Original Pomade...

    By Kamran Hameed on 24th Jun 2016

    Thus far used it a couple of times only so maybe my opinion will change on it once I use it more and more. It's not as much of a shine but slightly stronger hold compared to the pomade. It gives your hair a natural finish. The same scent is on there as well. It's very easy to apply onto the hair and you don't even need a lot to apply in the first place, but I feel it's a little harder to wash off. The pomade feels like I can just rinse it off and I'm good, this one not so much. It's definitely good for short hair. For longer hair, get back to me in a month haha

    Overall, I'd recommend giving it a shot. Between this and their pomade, people have said to me to stick with the cream. I'm undecided at the moment which one I will stick with.

  42. layrite matte cream

    By joey on 23rd Jun 2016

    I used the high hold for years. I just switched to the matte cream and it has worked very well. I am in the military so to find a product that I can use at work is very difficult. Your products are great I would be happy to try any one of them.

  43. AWESOME!

    By Cody on 21st Jun 2016

    Just got the Father's Day kit and went right to this first. I always wake up later than I should when preparing to go to work and this stuff is great for that on the go life style. Go from a laid back style to a very business like style as well. Also, I live where it gets very humid and this stuff locks my hair in without looking crispy or unnatural. Will definitely be buying the larger portion as well as the pomade super hold! Best product I've used for my hair and believe I have tried many and this beats em all!

  44. overrated

    By Armando on 20th Jun 2016

    I bought this product based on the description, I wanted a natural matte finish on my hair. My hair comes out still hard like when I put pomade. Not as advertised.

  45. Matte is better

    By Unknown on 17th Jun 2016

    Been a Layrite Original Deluxe Pomade for several years. Like the hold and appearance of this much better. New Favorite.

  46. Works exactly as marketed

    By David Campos on 17th Jun 2016

    I switched to this product from Layrite Cement. I love the hold of the cement, but it can be very hard to work with. It also required that my hair be very wet to apply. The Natural Matte solves this problem. It is effortless to work with, and functions very well on even dry hair. My only complaint is that it takes a large amount of product to achieve medium hold (grape sized +). I only needed a pea size portion with the clay. Its a small issue. This is definitely a product I will continue to buy.

  47. awful

    By Colby on 17th Jun 2016

    Terrible product,not matte finish . Will not work with my hair no hold . After a day the hold dies especially if it's hot or humid it will not work work at all in the heat . Very disappointed it's not worse 21 dollars at all .

  48. Best Layrite Yet!

    By Karl on 17th Jun 2016

    Having been a Layrite fan for years, I was very eager to try this new Natural Matte Cream for myself. Now that I’ve had a chance to use it, I can say that it’s quickly become my favorite Layrite product yet. It goes on smoothly and provides great texture and hold with an all-natural look that lasts. It’s also very easy to re-work and style throughout the day. As a bonus, it has that great signature vanilla scent. Thanks to Layrite for another amazing product!

  49. Conveinent and Effecient

    By Clay K. on 16th Jun 2016

    An excellent product for shorter messy textured hairstyles, with no shine. Perfect for when you want a convenient, fast hairstyle.

  50. awesome buy!

    By Unknown on 15th Jun 2016

    This product is great. It's easy to apply and holds. On top of that I don't have to use much to get my hair style the way I want. Overall great product!

  51. Great Stuff

    By Michael on 15th Jun 2016

    It's like pure butter for your hair. The best cream pomade I've ever tried. My daily go-to product now.


    By Mr. Lucky King on 14th Jun 2016

    The evil geniuses at Layrite™ Have done it again.
    A fine product. Easy to work in and comb through, yet even at medium hold strong enough to last the day... The Natural Matte is like a summertime version of the Layrite™ Cement. I'm loving the no gloss look and as always the fact that it washes right out. What really blew my mind was the packaging. The gold top lid exudes quality and the flat white can with its blue label is the essence of nostalgia ... It's old school look is spot on..
    I feel like I'm writing this review with bias though, I've been a Layrite™ Fan for well over ten years and have only not liked two of the products they've put out...
    I'll be buying quite a few more cans of the Natural Matte, that is a for sure ya' betcha'
    Keep up the good work cats and kittens.
    Mr. Lucky King

  53. Awesome!

    By Eric T. on 11th Jun 2016

    Everything I expected it would be! It truly is a matte finish! Smells great! Layrite has done it again

  54. Terrific Product For Fine Hair

    By Jason on 10th Jun 2016

    I have all of the Layrite products and now like "Natural Matte" best for my hair. I have fine hair and and this cream is able to give it some body and keeps my hair in place nice. You can restyle as needed with your fingers and it will hold (flexible).

    It's name is Natural Matte, but I feel there is still a very low level of shine. Not much, but your hair doesn't actually look dry. I really like the look and feel of this new product and highly recommend for guys with finer hair.

  55. Better than I hoped for

    By craig CADY on 10th Jun 2016

    this stuff works great ! just what I wanted , allows me to have my comb over side part hair style hang down on one side and look a little messy just enough hold and separation really impressed Layrite never disappoints

  56. Fast Natural and Stylish

    By Josué Aguilar on 9th Jun 2016

    I had always look for a product that had a great style hold and a natural matte finish. I have tried all layrite hair products and we'll I love them all but this is my favorite one. . I tried the cement hair clay and it works great but I like the medium hold it's easier to flow and it satisfies my needs when it comes to a quick hairstyles ..easy to apply and comb by had or with your layrite comb

  57. Outstanding

    By Daniel Griffin on 9th Jun 2016

    Personally, I prefer a matte finish over shine so this product is excellent. Although I just got it, I feel that it might be the most versatile of the Layrite product line. I absolutely love the Layrite Cement for my hair, though sometimes I don't want something as heavy in my hair for different occasions. The new Layrite Natural Matte is the best replacement for this issue one could ask for. In my barbershop, we use all the Layrite products on our clients' hair and there is a Layrite for everyone. I really look forward to using the new Layrite Natural Matte on my clients and my hair for a long time to come. Also the packaging is very cool as always. Thanks Layrite, for having a true understanding of what consumers, as well as barbers and stylists, want and need for their hair.

  58. DIG IT

    By MT on 9th Jun 2016

    Dig the texture. Dig the scent. Excellent product. My only gripe with these layrite products is that it stings the eyes if you get sweaty. If y'all made a no sting version i'd never buy another hair jelly.


    By rob on 9th Jun 2016

    I was skeptical at first. I think Layrite's cement is amazing. Tried this on a whim and it's freaking awesome. Blow drying beforehand is a must. This gives me a natural look with just enough hold so my hair doesn't fall in my face. This and cement are my new go to's

  60. Natural Mate

    By Dario on 9th Jun 2016

    Hello, I have use Deluxe, Super hold, and now Natural Matte. My favorite is Natural Matte, easy to sculpt and I like how it feels when is dry. I did not give it 5 stars because I need to use more compared to Super hold or Deluxe to fix my hair, this makes Natural Matte more expensive in the long run... but it is my new favorite... are you planning on selling a bigger size?

  61. Best Layrite Yet!

    By Karl on 7th Jun 2016

    Having been a Layrite fan for years, I was eager to try this new hair cream for myself. I was looking for something that would go on smoothly with good hold, definition and matte finish. This product is everything I was hoping for and more! It has great texture, is very easy to use and provides a superior look that is perfect for my wavy hair. Layrite does it again!
