Best Pomade for Curly Hair

Suavecito Firme Hold Pomade
  • Smells divine
  • Solid hold, even for curly hair
  • You don’t need a lot of product

You’ll get a healthy, but non-greasy shine. Plus you get surprisingly easy comb control while it tames even uncontrollable manes.

While most guys love the smell, there are those that believe it’s a little too strong.


This is a very popular option for those in the rock scene. But, hey, also for those in the motorcycle scene. That’s because it’s so good at keeping everything in place while retaining the ability to restyle – even after wearing a helmet for a few hours.

But, we’re fond of this pomade when it comes to guys with curly hair because it really does keep things in place – even those crazy cowlicks and swirls that go anywhere they please. It combs through like a dream. And, this American product does equally well across modern as well as old-school styles. You’ve got to love that.                                      

Base: Water

Notable ingredients: We’re not the biggest fans of the ingredients list as it has a fair amount of “not our fave” ingredients including urea. But, hey, it’s actually not bad for your hair. There’s also added fragrance and coloring.

Hold and control: A wonderfully strong hold that doesn’t harden into a helmet.

Shine level: Medium; it’s more natural-looking than many pomades.

Texture and fragrance: It looks a little like a thick honey; but don’t worry, it’s not sticky. It smells like old-fashioned cologne. It’s a little sweet, even though it’s quite manly. That said, it’s a little too strong initially for some users, though the smell tends to dissipate after half an hour.

Application: You can comb this through curly hair easily and it leaves hair workably soft. If you splash some water on your fingers, it’s even easier to style and restyle (after it’s been distributed, of course).

Washability: Easy, like all water-based pomades should be.

Sizes and pricing: It’s $12 for a 4-ounce container and available with Prime. That makes it a reasonable (and perfectly average) $3 per ounce. It just gets better and better.
