English Laundry Pomade

When it comes to your coif, shine shouldn’'t come at the expense of comfort and control. Avoid a crusty hair gel catastrophe with this firm-but-pliable pomade. A base of water and castor oil makes this flexible formula shiny, but not sticky. Its medium holding power can craft a range of classic looks, from a pompadour to a Don-Draper side part. Dapper just got a lot more doable.

Great for certain styles
Sampled

First of all, this is pomade, and not a type of product that is supposed to be used to spike hair or pretty much do anything that would equate holding your hair in a very specific place for a long period of time. Pomade is typically used to add shine and gain low to medium hold to hair. My hair type is straight and semi-thin, so I can only judge for people with similar hair types. In the summer, I tend to trim my hair kind of short-medium length, and a medium-longer length in the winter. This product worked great for my summer style hair, as I didn't really have too much hair that would weigh the product down. In the winter, however, I tend to go towards stronger holding products - not this stuff. It really depends on what type of hair you have.

The perfect pomade
SampledPurchased

This pomade is perfect. It holds well, but isn't stiff. It holds nicely throughout the day and makes hair shiny and soft.

Smells great, very thick, strong hold
SampledPurchased

I love english laundry colognes, i have gotten several as samples and even liked one enough to buy it (oxford bleu), and this product smells like a good cologne.
I do think its necessary to repeat, it smells like cologne, so if you don't want people smelling the product in your hair, this isn't for you. In my opinion though, it is not strong enough that it would combat a cologne your wearing but that might depend on how much you put in.

Its very thick, has a strong hold, you don't need much to get the style you want. Downside is that you have to be careful not to use too much because it can quickly make your hair too thick and heavy, i really use it as a finisher product to make sure the style holds.

Excellent hold
Sampled

Brilliant! I'll be honest, I didn't like this product at first, but over time I realized I've been using garbage pomade all along. This pomade holds great and smells nice. Seriously, this held so well I couldn't make a call beause they were in hold.

Great for frizzy ends
Sampled

The pomade is great for controlling frizzy ends. You can't rub it all over your hair like a regular pomade, or it would be way too sticky. Just put a tiny dab (seriously, a TINY dab) in your hand, rub it around and use your fingers to control frizzy ends. Smooth the rest on the sides and back of your head to add some shine. Perfect! Also love the light fragrance (heavy fragrances irritate me) and that this is paraben and sulphate free.

Does the job every time.

I'm an emergency physician and at the end of 10 hours this stuff is still going strong. Works especially well on the top of my head where my hair is very difficult to tame.

So great, she'll steal it!
Purchased

I buy this stuff for my husband, but I'll admit that I borrow it quite often. It's phenomenal! It's great for styling his thicker, wavy hair, and also for taming my fine, frizzy flyaways. It's not too sticky or waxy, and has a nice, light scent.

Awesome

I liked the product so much that I bought the full size version. It has a very strong hold without being too sticky or flakey.

so far my favorite pomade
SampledPurchased

I love the samples I get for pomades and this is the only one that I've bought and not regretted. It works well if you have a lot of hair, great hold, good shine, not too greasy. It smells INCREDIBLE
