This stuff is great, it keeps your hair in place and looking great without a hard crusty finish. I can't stand the hard shiny finish on my hair. This stuff gives you a natural look and a natural feel while keeping your hair in place, I highly recommend.
The product has a bit stronger of a hold than a typical pomade and feels less greasy than they usually do as well.
Great, but took a while to get the amount right
This is a great product - I found this one to be the best I've tried, but especially for folks with shorter-medium length hair. Once my hair started to get longer, I had to keep experimenting with different amounts of the product and it left my hair either out-of-control or way-too-greasy - there seemed to be no middle ground. Once you get the quantity right, it's great - and it's pink, which is awesome, and it smells good too.
Good hold, light weight, great for texture...
This has become my favorite product for fixing my hair. I like to spike my hair, but like to keep away from the hard hat effect certain products create. I really liked that with this pomade, is that if you apply to dry hair it will allow you to style as you wish but provide a look as if you don't really have any product in your hair at all. The control is good, but you shouldn't expect your hair to stay 100% in place with this product after 8 hrs, as it's not meant for an extra firm hold.
If you apply it when your hair is a little damp or wet, it mimics the 'wet look' a bit more. To apply to your hair, place small amount on palms and rub your hands together, then rub into your hair starting with your palms [in circular motions] as this provides more even distribution of the product than just using your finger tips. Then use your fingers to sculpt your hair as preferred.
I will point out that one flaw, is that it does feel a little greasy, not a lot just a little if you run your hand through your hair. However, it washes out exceptionally easy with shampoo which cannot be said for many products.
Overall, definitely worth the purchase I made after getting a sample of this in muh box.
Baxters of California Hard Cream Pomade
I had wanted a hair product that held well but didn't leave my hair with flakes after a full day. It holds strong and lasts all day. Fantastic Product.
Does the job!
It is a good cream/paste. Don't need to use too much. Seems to work as advertised, but it isn't my husbands favorite. Definitely more of a paste consistency and takes a bit of work to spread out and blend into hair, but overall seems to be a good product!
It only takes a tiny dab
This stuff really lasts a long time. It only takes a small dab to create a lot of hold. I love good products, but I'm also a tight wad. So, it's a constant struggle for me to find the right balance of what I'm willing to spend vs. what quality I'm willing to settle for. That is all to say: I don't normally spend $20 on pomade. However, one jar of this stuff will last me for months.
Also, for how well it holds, the finish is softer than I expected.
I also like that this stuff works great on slightly damp hair. That's super handy when I'm rushing to get out the door on weekdays.
not for me
I like more of a matte finish from my hair products. This one makes my hair a little glossy for my liking. I'm also not a fan of the scent.
I really like this hair product. I have thick, straight hair. It likes to stay down. This product helps give me the style I want all day. It doesn't weigh it down.
husband loves it
My husband uses this product- I love the way his hair looks when he does it- seems to last the whole day.
