Paul Mitchell Construction Paste

I have thick, curly hair but have never wanted to apply heat when styling it, so I’m always on the lookout for new hair styling products that provide the right amount of hold and texture. I was so excited to try the Paul Mitchell Construction Paste that has an elastic hold so it provides enough strength to a hairstyle while still allowing for it to move and flow throughout the day!
