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

Perfect Pomade

This product gives a great hold without making it look like there is too much product in your hair. It also isn't too sticky so it's easy to move the product around.

Amazing
Purchased

I love this product. I'm not really a fan of putting goop in my hair, but the Modify Pomade is perfect to hold my thick, wavy hair in place, as well as give it some extra shine. Bonus points for the stuff not being greasy or endlessly sticky; I don't even feel the need to rinse my hands off after using it!

This is an amazing product. It has a great subtle smell. It is easy and smooth to apply. I really like that it doesn't make my hair hard to the touch. I get a nice soft texture with good control. This is probably one of the better hair products I've ever tried. Will definitely be buying again.
