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.

Not my thing
Sampled

It wouldn't wash out of my hair. It made my hair stick up in a funny way, like a weird cowlick. I didn't care for the consistency. I prefer water-soluble pomades.

Awful

This went right in the trash. It was like trying to spread parched clay in my hair. It does not spread around AT ALL. Besides that, it wouldn't wash off my hands with soap and water. So it will probably be in my hair for the next couple days. I'm not a fan of Baxter products and this would be a perfect reason why.

Mostly Ineffective

This pomade is so thick that I had a hard time getting it out of the tiny sample sized jar. It was pretty much useless in my thick hair, felt a bit like putting oily glue on my scalp. Also it smells like weird chemicals.

Just bad...
Sampled

Did not hold very well and it just seemed to clump up in nasty little bits. Not to mention it took me a few showers to get the stuff out of my hair.

This is a sample repeat

I have already received this sample in a previous box so that was a disappointment. Also I am not a fan of the dough like texture or smell . This is not my first choice.

Horrible

This pomade is terrible. Not a big fan of clay based products to begin with but gave it a try. My hair (which is very easy to style and manipulate) would not come close to staying styled for more than 30 minutes and it took 2 showers to fully wash this product out of my hair. Would absolutely stay away from this product and would even recommend staying away from all clay based products and stick with water based.

Really tough

This is a really tough product to use because it is not very pliable.
