Hope you all are doing great. Today, I’m going to review Nick Chavez SoftFlocker Styling Cream. This cream promises to add nourishment, bounce and volume to thin and limp hair. I have used it a couple of times and thought to share my experiences here. So, let’s get started.
Nick’s famous Flocker® re-invented and formulated into a cream! SoftFlocker™ is a versatile, universal hair styling product that provides the same all day styling control and amazing volume without weight or oiliness. Use on wet hair to provide control and maintain a soft voluminous look, or on dry hair to provide texture, creating piece-y, sexy looks and sustainable control throughout the day with humidity resistance and a subtle shine.
To Use: Work a quarter-sized amount through wet or damp hair, blow dry or let air dry. For dry hair, use a quarter size amount and work through for texturized and piece-y looks.

My Experience with Nick Chavez SoftFlocker Styling Cream:
The product comes in a plastic tub packaging and I have to dip my fingers to use it because it’s pretty thick as butter. It has an extra protective cap inside to avoid any accidental spillage.
I have very thin hair that needs a bit of lift to make it look nice and thick so, I am always on the lookout for products that can help me achieve that without causing much damage to my hair. I got this styling cream to give a little volume to my roots as they fall flat and look bad at times. This cream is from Nick Chavez who is a celebrity hair stylist and has iconic high-end products in the market. When I got this for myself, I knew I will love this product as I have already used Nick’s shampoo and conditioner.
The texture of the cream is very thick just like hard butter but it spreads easily on the hair. One can easily go overboard with this product and that can lead to disastrous hair rather than looking like a celebrity. There is a soft feminine fragrance to it and it isn’t over the top. I have used it on dry as well as wet hair but personally, I loved using it on wet hair.
Usually, I take a tiny amount and warm the product between my palms to apply it to the roots because that is where I need more volume. Then after, I proceed with blow drying and styling my hair. I have had a couple of bad times with it as it made my hair flat and limp instead of providing the desired volume. I guess I had used more product and this cream also causes product build up, so using a clarifying shampoo once a week becomes a must. The list of ingredients is huge and confusing and I am not sure if I will repurchase it again, but it is doing the job somewhat satisfactorily.
Pros of Nick Chavez SoftFlocker Styling Cream:
- Adds a slight volume.
- Nice smell.
Cons of Nick Chavez SoftFlocker Styling Cream:
- Confusing list of ingredients.
- Too thick to use.
- Causes buildup.
IMBB Rating: 3/5
Will I Recommend/Repurchase Nick Chavez SoftFlocker Styling Cream?
No, it’s just another hair product and at this price, you can find better ones in the market.
