Northern Lights Matte Paste

Northern Lights was created out of our love for natural texture and looks in the care industry. Getting my start in the salon industry, creating a product like this has always been a goal for me. I truly believe we're bridging a gap between healthy home-brewed & chemical based cosmetic lab-made products. We always get the job done with the hair & scalps health in mind.

Crafted For One

Northern Lights was created out of our love for natural texture and looks in the hair care industry. We truly tried bridging the gap between mindfully crafted & chemical based cosmetic lab-made products with this one. Its namesake comes from "Screaming To The Northern Lights" by the New Jersey band, The I In Team. The skyline on the label is actually made up of sound waves from the song. The song was a favorite of a dear friend who passed. We thought this would be a beautiful way to pay hommage.

The ultimate hair product.

Love the Shear Revival Northern Lights. Lives up to the hype!

Wish it would last longer throughout the day

Not the biggest fan of this clay due to the price tag and the performance. I expected more for bang for my buck but I was left disappointed once I realized this clay didn’t last throughout the day. Initially styling is easy, the hold seemed to be strong. But I noticed as the day went by, my hair began to get flatter and flatter. I was expecting a higher hold, but that isn’t what I got. I will say that the smell is great, and if you don’t sweat/ work a laborious job this may be well suited for you. All in all, not what I expected.

4 years in

I stumbled upon this 4ish years ago and have been using it exclusively ever since. I have stubborn hair, i’m super picky with what i use, and really love clean products, and this fits the bill. I don’t even wash it out at night and it doesn’t give me acne or anything from being on my pillow/sheets. Styles my hair awesome, lasts forever, and the ingredient list is solid. I figured after years of using this i really should review it.

Great with a caveat

I want to preface this by saying I enjoy NL a lot. However, I had to change how I normally style my hair due to the tug and tack of this product. I have extremely thick and curly hair. So, I blow dry to get my desired style. Making my hair dry obviously. This product is horrible to put into completely dry hair. Must be damp. I can see how that my out some people if they aren’t flexible or wanting to work with the product.

Aside from that the product is a true matt finish and has great hold.

Better than American Gardens

Love this product for my thin, fine hair (especially paired with the Amity Spray). Tried the American Gardens first looking for strong hold and no shine. After trying Northern Lights I think its effective hold is even better, thanks to easier application allowing me to coat more hair fibers evenly. Will be back for more!
