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.

Light and easy to mix
Sampled

Worse thing about pomades is when they dry out or are too hard to mix in your hand IMO.

This one is easy to mix. Does not provide a strong hold but a natural hold

Solid hold
Sampled

Really good hold for a pomade. I have long hair and it does a good job of keeping it maintained and slicked back. But it does finish a bit greasy.

English Laundry does it again
SampledPurchased

They easily have the best smells in everything that I try, that stays consistent here. Holds my hair in place perfectly. I definitely will be buying more of this!

Not for me...
Sampled

Well yes, this does have a great smell and comes from English Laundry, one of my favorite brands. But it's near impossible to work through your hands, let alone your hair without feeling like it's pulling out every strand you have. Maybe it's just my thick, wavy hair but I've definitely used better, creamier pomades.

Smells nice
SampledPurchased

Another BB sample that I bought a full size of. It has the English Laundry signature scent and a good amount of hold with some shine. Very thick stuff. I like to use it when I need a little extra hold.

Doesn't leave too much of a shine
Purchased

It does exactly as its described. Not too much shine, enough of a hold, and if you dampen your hair later throughout the day you can restyle it a little bit. Its probably better for people with hair that isn't super thick. I have thicker hair and I seem to use more product then recommended.

I don't really use pomade

It smells nice and has a nice texture. I might recommend it to the right person

Good scent, decent hold, not crunchy
Sampled

I have fine, curly hair and this gives me partially defined curls without frizz. My hair is still soft to the touch after use and it washes out cleanly. Both I and my wife like the scent.
