- Super hold (no really)
- Wow does this smell good
- Easily washes out of your hair
If you’re after an elevated style with serious hold, you may want to consider this one. It’s got the hold of gel, but all the flexibility of a pomade. And, it remains flake-free.
Some users find this leaves their hair a little dry. Though, some reviewers find it on the sticky side.
Gosh, we like the principle behind this pomade. It was created as a wax or gel alternative as far as the hold is concerned. But, it’s a pomade and it washes out like one – easily. It’s great for taming thick, coarse hair as it really does have perhaps the strongest hold out there.
We love that you can achieve a fair amount of volume with this American-made pomade. Guys who want a tight mohawk or spiked hair should really consider this as it holds until you want it to stop. At the same time, you won’t find a single flake – and you may find people trying to get a whiff of the delicious aroma wafting from your head.
Base: Water (though it’s not as if you won’t find some oil in the mix)
Notable ingredients: The caster oil conditions hair which the mix of glycerin and coconut oil emulsifies and thickens hair.
Hold and control: This is a really high-hold pomade; it’s almost as if it were wax. It’s also long-lasting, which means you shouldn’t need to make any adjustments before heading out for the evening. If you do, there is still a fair amount of flexibility in this blend.
Shine level: We’d call it a medium shine, but depending on the hair you bring to the party, it could appear a little less shiny than other pomades would provide.
Texture and fragrance: It’s a smooth, non-sticky pomade that smells like vanilla, but, like, a manly vanilla. We know that may be tough for some people to understand, but it really does have an amazing scent that people (of all genders) fall for.
Application: It’s super easy to apply and distribute, gripping hair to allow for an amazing range of styles. It’s also easy to restyle with a little water.
Washability: Expect zero flakes and an easy time washing it out of your hair. (It just keeps getting better, right?)
Sizes and pricing: For $18, you get 4.25 ounces. It is on the Prime list (but not Subscribe & Save). So, you should expect it to work out to about $4.25 per ounce; that’s on the high end of average. It’s not for people that are ultra-budget conscious, but we’d still place it in the value for money category.
