A lightweight, water-based shaping cream that adds texture with flexible, all-day hold for a range of styles from easy and laid-back to more defined.
Works best for
What makes it unique
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.
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.
Great feel, matte finish, non-oily and water soluble.
Works best with dry hair
Layrite's natural matte cream is the best! I have used a few other brands but none of them compare to Layrite!
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!!
Finish is what I was looking for. Rinses nicely. Hold is good. Worth it. Wish it held a bit better with first come through.
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
Did not like the texture,or how it made my hair look. I'll stick to the original
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.
This stuff is amazing as always! Never lets me down when I want a more loose hairstyle
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
Excellent product, I love the way it isn't shiny, holds but is not stiff and stays ok to the touch
Does exactly what it says, medium hold low sheen. Smells great also!
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.
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...
Hold is strong and easy to style. Great product!
It's smells good but doesn't hold well
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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)
It works great, holds how I like it too. It smells great and washes out so easily. Super lightweight. A++
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!
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!
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.
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.
Woks well. Still fiddling with it to get best results but so far so good
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!
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!
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.
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++++
This stuff is great! So easy to restyle! Love it!
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.
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!
This is the best selling product in my Barber Shop. The lightweight cream formula is a dream come true. Thanks Layrite!
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
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.
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.
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!
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.
Been a Layrite Original Deluxe Pomade for several years. Like the hold and appearance of this much better. New Favorite.
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.
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 .
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!
An excellent product for shorter messy textured hairstyles, with no shine. Perfect for when you want a convenient, fast hairstyle.
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!
It's like pure butter for your hair. The best cream pomade I've ever tried. My daily go-to product now.
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
Everything I expected it would be! It truly is a matte finish! Smells great! Layrite has done it again
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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
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?
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!
