Birchbox Breakdown

Some ’90s’ trends (like crop tops) are making a comeback, while others (the perfect flannel shirt) never went out of style. But there’s one look from our youth we hope to never see again: supershiny, so-crunchy-it-cracks gelled hair. Luckily, we can now reach for this hair pomade instead: It has the same firm hold, but with a modern matte finish—and it doesn’t leave a flaky residue behind. What’s more, it’s formulated with a range of plant extracts that protect and hydrate hair, rather than—come to think of it, we don’t even want to know what those gels were made of.

How to Use

Work through clean hair, damp or dry. Start with a dime-sized amount for fine hair, and use a quarter-sized amount (or more as needed) for thick or coarse hair. Comb through for a slick style or tousle for a more mussed look.

I recently cut my hair into a P!NK style mohawk and I love it! But - I've had the same bob haircut for like 10 years and had no clue how to style my new 'do. So - I sought out something natural and easy to use. This product is light, has a texture that holds well but can be changed throughout the day, and smells amazing! As a first time product user this wins a gold star and makes me confident.

Strong Hold, Light Weight, & Matte Fight

This was recommend to me by my barber and has now become by day to day product for almost a year now. I love it because it easily controls my crazy cowlick with very little product, but with an extremely matte finish. I've found it really only works with completely dry hair though.
4 stars instead of 5 because it is a little bit pricier than comparable products by Hanz, Baxter, ect.
Purchased in SoHo store.

Hella residue

The hold is golden but it leaves a residue. On the tacky but dry side. Sweet smell and did I mention the hold.

Not good with thick hair

I've really liked some of their other products, but this one really underperforms. It has no hold or styling capability. I would not recommend it for thick hair.
