I love Baxter and this pomade is an okay one. I have thick, wavy hair and it does the trick. I haven't yet used it for a straighter, more controlled style, so I can't speak on that. It's not greasy and leaves a matte finish. I love that the sample comes in a jar - packaging is great - but dang it's tiny! I have a LOT of hair! Very faint, light scent, if any, so if you're looking for that this one is good. Personally I prefer something that has the added bonus of smelling great.
