Great clay with little shine
Purchased

The Baxter Clay Pomade comes in a glass jar instead of plastic so you know it's classy. It spreads evenly in my hands and through my hair. I have dark hair and can't use anything with shine without it looking greasy. I can use this in towel dried hair for a funkier look or blown dry for a cleaner look. Good hold without it being too heavy. Can be modified during the day if needed.

Awesome for long hair

I know this is geared toward men, but I bought this for my boyfriend, and ended up using it in a moment of desperation one day. It kept my curls soft and in place all day, and is very flexible. My boyfriend has extremely thick hair, and he loves it as well.

3.5 would be more like it

Its a great smelling pomade. I wish hoping for a little more hold, but i will give it 4 stars because it didnt make the hair feel as greasy as other pomade's i have tried.

Excellent Pomade

Does a great job at making hair look natural and stylish. It is easy to apply as well which is better than most.

Sub-par that didn't hold my thick hair

When I received February's box and saw Baxter's Clay Pomade I was excited to use it. I have a wide range of Baxter products, though mostly their facial based products. I'm not one to use a small amount of product as my hair is thick and, at the time, longer than usual. The pomade barely held my hair together and by the end of the night it was as if I hadn't put it in my hair at all.

Best Hair Care Product I've Used So far!
Purchased

I've been using this for a couple months already and already love it, i've used quite a bit of product but highly recommend this for medium to mid length hair, and for those looking for a great smelling matte pomade but still has a strong hold. This Pomade Clay is the way to go!

Good Hold, But Too Shiny
Purchased

Tried this out when the Go 247 Texture Paste was sold out. It's not bad, but has too much shine to it to me. I'll use it up, but not reorder.

Best hair product I've tried
Purchased

I love this stuff. Great hold, Great naturally fresh smell, and a little goes a very long way. I will surely be buying more when this runs out, whenever that may be.

great style less move
Purchased

Perfect for the disconnected hair look that's going around now.

Can't wash it out easily with the shampoo from the same company but I like the look and feel of this product. I have thick heavy hair so it works perfectly well with the style I am go for.
