Jonathan Silky Dirt

Having a shorter do that needs volume to look its best means I steer clear of smoothing products that will make my hair feel great but flatten it like a pancake.

After weeks of use, I’ve found that using Jonathan Silky Dirt Shine & Define Creme allows me to have a little bit of hold with shine, and a smooth, silky feel to my hair – without my whole do going limp!

Silky Dirt is designed to add shine and definition, provide flexible and moldable hold, smooth dry and damaged hair, and texturize and control hair. After weeks of on and off use – I can say very assuredly that yes, this product delivers!

Silky Dirt has become my preferred styling creme on days when I don’t want to pump up the volume all the way, paired with a little bit of hairspray to finish up. I like using Silky Dirt on days when I’ve just washed my hair, and I want that clean, smooth feeling on my head (I wash my hair on average every other day).

So what are some of the highlights of this vegan hair styling product?!

According to the company:

  • Sunflower phyto-ceramide (restructures and protects the hair cuticle)
  • Lemongrass extract (adds brilliance, body and enhances texture)
  • Pomegranate extract (antioxidant conditions and helps maintain healthy-looking hair)
  • Exotic butters (shea and mango butters condition and soften)
  • Sweet almond and soy proteins (improves manageability and appearance of damaged hair)
  • Natural botanical extracts (cucumber rose essential water, for example, nourishes hair)
  • UV Filters shield hair from color fading and environmental damage
  • Safe for color-treated hair and all hair types
  • It has a very subtle and pleasant scent that smells pretty after your hair is blown dry!


What Silky Dirt doesn’t include:

  • Mineral Oil
  • Synthetic colors
  • DEA
  • Sulfates

Jonathan recommends using on dry or slightly damp hair. Keeping in mind that a little goes a long way, emulsify a small amount of product in hands and apply to hair in sections, focusing on mid-lengths through ends.

I use it on my towel-dried/damp hair, prior to blow-dry and style, and use a small bit throughout my whole head, running through pieces of hair.

This retails at a SRP of $28 for 3.35 oz, which isn’t cheap, and may be a deciding factor on whether I buy it when I find the tube empty. On the Jonathan website it’s listed for $26, but out of stock. Here’s a link to show you all the places you can find Jonathan hair products, aside from their website!

Have you ever tried this product? What are your thoughts on the Jonathan brand in general – I’m curious to hear what you have to say!!
