With the enticing choc fudge brownie scent of the Australian Matte Clay, The Bearded Chap has created the ultimate hair styling product.

Our Australian Matte Hair Clay is made from 100% natural, ethically-sourced ingredients, including three variants of Australian clay. With an intoxicating and masculine chocolate fudge brownie scent this styling clay gives your hair a natural, voluminous and textured look. But perhaps the most impressive thing about our Australian Matte Clay is that it performs as an oil based clay, however easily washes off your hands and doesn’t leave your hair hard or sticky. 

We do not dilute our Australian Matte Clay with water like other brands, so the product will appear, at first, to be hard. The hardest things are always the best though!

Frequently Asked Questions

What does hair Clay do?

Hair clay products add volume to hair. It’s perfect when you need to achieve a style that requires volume, as it doesn’t weigh the hair down with product, while still achieving great hold with a matte finish. Hair clays are a great option if you're a fan of hair styles that need medium hold/high hold and volume.

Is hair clay good for hair?

Clay products are good for hair as it draws out impurities, dirt and grime, but without stripping the natural oils that keep your hair healthy. Hair clay products can help heal damaged hair, and stimulate hair growth by nourishing the hair follicles and the scalp.

What is the best hair clay?

The best hair clay products will: 

  • Be easy to work through your hair. 
  • Keep your hair and side parting in place, but also allow you to rework during the day. 
  • Be a great pre styler.
  • Give a matte finish. 
  • Enable you to achieve a volumized, textured look. 
  • Nourish your hair and scalp.
  • Wash off easily just like water based hair products.

What is the difference between pomade and Clay?

The differences between pomade and clay products are pretty clear. Pomade hair product is best for medium length or longer styles where you want your hair to have medium hold and you can restyle throughout the day. Hair clays actually contain a clay ingredient, elements of volcanic ash clay, which are better for shorter, spikier styles.

Does hair clay wash out easily?

As most hair clays are completely water soluble, they are easy to wash out and make great hair styling products. Unlike oil based hair products, you should be able to easily remove all of the clay hair product from your hair with water and shampoo, leaving you free to restyle your hair as you wish.

Our Australian Matte Clay hair styling product washes out easily just like water based hair products, so never fear!

Can I use hair clay everyday?

Yes, you can use hair clay products every day as hair styling products. Hair clay will not damage your hair like some products, and can help to nourish the scalp, each hair strand and your hair follicles in order to give your hair a health boost. Some people even claim using clay hair product helps to stimulate hair growth, such are its nourishing qualities. A little bit goes a long way when it comes to styling.

Is hair clay better than wax?

Whether hair clay is better than wax depends on the look you are trying to achieve. Clay will give you a more matte, natural finish, and add volume to your hair. Whereas hair wax and hair gel will add shine and leave your hair looking more ‘styled’. So, if you favour a natural look, clay as a hair styling product for men's hair is better than wax.

Is it bad to leave clay in your hair overnight?

It is not necessarily bad to leave clay in your hair overnight. It really depends on your hair type. If your hair tends to dry out, you might be better advised to wash it out before bed. But for many, they will see no adverse effects if they leave their clay in overnight, and may even see some benefits to the health of their scalp and hair.
