Baxter of California Clay Pomade

If you seek industrial-strength hold without the look of a Ken doll, consider this highly competent pomade. A combination of clay and beeswax deliver all-day hold and a matte finish, while fennel, lemon peel, and sage oils give it a fresh, herby scent. The gritty balm will never leave neither oily sheen nor a single strand out of place.

Sticky

It's a little too sticky for my taste. It would work well for shorter hairstyles.

Sub-par that didn't hold my thick hair

When I received February's box and saw Baxter's Clay Pomade I was excited to use it. I have a wide range of Baxter products, though mostly their facial based products. I'm not one to use a small amount of product as my hair is thick and, at the time, longer than usual. The pomade barely held my hair together and by the end of the night it was as if I hadn't put it in my hair at all.

Not Quite a Pomade. Not quite a wax

It's not that this is a bad pomade, I just think for the price it should be a little bit more stiff or have a little less shine. It's like the one B of C product I haven't been 110% satisfied with. A little more hold would make this a great pomade.

Overly sticky

Clay is a good word for it. This product is overly sticky and difficult to work with. If you like a thick hold, however, you might like it?

Good Hold, But Too Shiny
Purchased

Tried this out when the Go 247 Texture Paste was sold out. It's not bad, but has too much shine to it to me. I'll use it up, but not reorder.

Others love it, I think it is just OK
Purchased

I am not impressed, at all. I actually find it one of the least workable pomades I have ever tried; definitely not worth the investment. For the money, I would go with another product.

holds great

Loved this product and used it for a few months. My only complain is that I had to wash my hair multiple times to feel clean after using it.

great hold and scent
Purchased

This product is fantastic. It provides a medium firm hold without looking stiff and without leaving hair greasy. Reactivate it the next day without washing hair, just comb through.

Solid product, better if cocktailed with others.
Purchased

The scent is very earthy (expectedly due to clay), but clean and not overpowering.

You'll have to take a pinch and rub your hands together until the product no longer resembles a paste and then style your hair.

Great for my curly hair that's short on the sides and ~3.5 inches on top.

I mix it with Hanz de Fuko Hybridized Wax to combine scents and add a low shine.

Near perfect hair product

I have thick & curly hair. I tend to keep it on the short side because it's been known to get a little "out of control." This product seems to do everything I want it to do. Keep it under control without the "wet look." I've tried countless products and this takes the cake.
