The problem: You’re a fan of the slicked back, rockabilly-inspired do—but you don’t want to look like a used car salesman. The solution: This lightweight pomade will keep your locks firmly in place, lend your hair a light and subtle glossy shine, minus any of the grease monkey effect.

How it Works

Tame the Mane in no Time
Purchased

This is an easy to use weapon in your grooming arsenal. Simply emulsify a small amount between you fingers (take a dab of it and rub your fingers together like you are trying to start a fire for a few seconds) apply it evenly through your hair, style as desired, and go! It stays pliable enough to maintain a bit as needed throughout the day. The "shine" is great and natural it does not leave your hair looking dull nor does reflect the light so much so that it burns the retinas of any would be admirers.

Sticky. Really sticky.
Purchased

Was trying to find a new styling product to work with my hair as a started growing it out. Needed something heavier than a paste/cream and decided to go with a pomade after reading a few reviews of how my new style would look best in terms of product usage to achieve the desired effect. The Hanz smells good and is easy to work with, but it's just really sticky and lacks a lot of hold of any kind. I didn't expect a bunch, but I expected some. It may be due to the fact that I have really thick/heavy hair, so if you have that going for you, I'd say stay away from this one.

I went from sample to full product quickly
Purchased

I really loved the sample and as soon as it was finished, I purchased the full product. I have thinning hair and this added body and a little texture. Some products would get really greasy and shiny by the end of the day, but this has been wonderful. I found a new pomade and I'm pretty happy about it.

Great product and value
Purchased

I have used many products over the years and most of them leave my hair greasy and looking unnatural. This product has a natural look, doesn't leave your hair greasy, and has a pretty strong hold. I feel I don't have to use too much of it either and it is a great value at this price.

A Non-Sticky Pomade is Usually Hard to Come By

This pomade will provide your hair with a long-lasting hold, but unlike other products, will not leave your hair sticky or stiff. The look of your hair is pretty natural, and the smell is pleasant, so the whiff of your scalp does not send a lady running from the gels aisle of your local grocery.

Great Hold
Purchased

For my thick, rough hair, this is the perfect product. The pomade blends into your hair great without leaving much residue and it has great hold. Also, it doesn't smell bad like some pomades. I'd definitely buy this again.

Works well for me - easy to use

Sometimes my hair frustrates me to no end due to its thickness However, with this pomade, I'm able to go from the shower to the mirror, slap a dob of this in my hand, and get a decent look that will hold for several hours.

Great for Wavy Hair

This stuff is prob. the best hair product I've ever used. I have long wavy hair and it keeps my style firmly in place without the 'gel' stiffness and shine.

Great hold and great shine

I love this stuff. I have fairly unruly straight hair and this holds my hair in place for the whole day. It's lightweight too so it never feels like there is so much product in your hair. I'm definitely buying this product again
