Nika Matt Paste Application Guide

Materials Required:

  • Matt Paste from Nika Styling Secret
  • Fine-tooth comb
  • Hairdryer (optional)
  • Hairbrush


  • Ensure that the hair is dry or almost dry. Matt Paste works best on hair that is not completely wet.
  • Comb through the hair to remove any knots, ensuring a smooth surface for application.


  • Rub a small amount of Matt Paste between your hands to warm it up and make it more malleable.
  • Run your hands through your hair, starting from the roots and moving towards the tips, to evenly distribute the product. Focus on areas that require more hold or where you desire more texture.
  • For a tousled look, use your fingers to sculpt and separate the hair. For a more defined effect, use the comb.
  • If you desire more volume, apply the product near the roots and use a hairdryer to lift the hair while drying.


  • If necessary, add a small additional amount of Matt Paste to further secure the style or to add definition to specific sections.
  • Rinsing is not required. The formula is designed to remain light on the hair without leaving sticky residues.
  • For a satin finish, apply the product on dry hair; for greater separation and unconventional styles, apply it on damp hair.

Post-Treatment Tips:

  • Avoid washing your hair immediately after application to maintain the styling.
  • To rejuvenate the styling the next day, run wet hands through your hair if you've used Crystal Fluid along with Matt Paste.
  • Use Nika Styling Secret's Natural Hair Spray for extra hold and thermal protection.
