Blind Barber 90 Proof Pomade

What do a barbershop and a speakeasy have in common, other than suspiciously strong liquids in glass jars? The word “dapper” comes to mind...as does this high-hold, moonshine-inspired paste. A generous swig of hops—a natural thickening agent and dandruff-fighting antiseptic—lends this protein-rich pomade its award-winning, natural-looking hold. (No secret knock required).

Not great
Sampled

This does not have much hold at all. I wish Birchbox would stop sending me products like this one, I already found the one I liked best in my first box...

doesn't work as well as I wanted it to
Sampled

I thought this would be great. I find the brand very appealing. It feels great and smells great. I don't care for the texture it gives my hair, and it doesn't provide much hold.

Really pliable, but weighed down my hair
Sampled

It smells great (kind of sugary) and for something with such a strong hold, it's super pliable in your hands which makes it really easy to apply, unlike most strong hold pomades/clays. However, while it gives me the hold I need, it weighs my hair down a fair amount and although it's matte (as I like) it does make my hair darker than it is. I like it enough to use it until the sample runs out, but I probably won't buy it.

Just OK

Product is good if you're using it in dry hair for a natural look. It's very lightweight & isn't the best to hold a style. Smells good. It was nice to try the product but for me it will not be something I'll buy in the future.

This is my other "go-to" product
Purchased

This smells 100% better than another pomade that I use regularly, that's for sure. The difference is the texture - I get a better hold with this. So I really only use this for special occasions when I'm trying to get a tight style from my hair. I've purchased one or two after sampling this in my Birch Box. The full-size lasts a long time. Really great product. Would definitely recommend!

My Husband's Daily Choice
SampledPurchased

My husband got this in his box and now he can't live without it. I'm pleased because not only does it make his curly hair look great, it doesn't have the overwhelming fruity odor of his last pomade.

Solid Pomade
Purchased

Great clean scent. Not too sticky or greasy as some others I've tried. Holds well and has a good finish to it. Price point is perfect also.

I love moonshine inspired
Purchased

I set this pomade aside to use when I went on a trip because I thought I liked the product I had been using. I was wrong and I'm sorry. This stuff held my hair all day long and gave it a nice shine.

My god son also let me comb his hair and use it on him, he's notorious for not liking his mane tamed. A little uncle action with a great product goes far.

Does the job
Purchased

My husband has been pleased with this product and I have used it in my two sons' hair with success as well. The smell is better than other hair products I have tried for them and it held up to a full day on all three of them. Would buy again.
