Baxter of California Hard Cream Pomade

As a gentleman's staple, pomade has a good track record (see: Cary Grant, Elvis Presley, James Dean). But repeated daily use can leave anyone's hair a little stiff. This robust formula combines the soft, natural finish of a cream styler with the hold and shine of a pomade—lending a style that's nothing short of iconic.

Hard as a Rock
Sampled

My sample was hard as a rock and was very clumpy when putting on. I'm a fan of Baxter but was very disappointed with this one

Too hard
Sampled

I've gotten this sample twice and the "pomade" is so hard it's nearly impossible to use. It doesn't even melt well with hot water.

Impossible to use
Sampled

Judging from the other reviews, maybe I got a defective sample, but I found this impossible to use. First, I had to struggle to get the nearly rock hard product out of the tiny jar, then it was so hard that working it in my hands amounted to worse than rolling play-do. Had to just throw it out. Very disappointing since I like the brand, loved the light scent of the product, and had hoped for better.

I think I got a bad batch
Sampled

I think somehow my sample dried out before I got it. It was like the WORST wax I've ever tried to use. There was no resemblance to cream whatsoever. I tried it twice and threw it away. The hold was nice, but it was horrible to work with. Try as I might using water, It stayed clumped and was just terrible.

is it supposed to be so hard ?
Sampled

I couldn't even get the sample out of the jar. I used a small spoon to get some of the pomade out but even then couldn't get it to spread in my palms.. it just stayed rolled in a little ball. is it supposed to be heated before using ?

Baxter of California Hard Cream Pomade

I honestly did not like this product because of how it made my hair look and feel. It just didn't work for me.

What?

This product comes in a cheap plastic container. The pomade is as hard as frozen grease and not nearly as pliable. I was really expecting at least a little more.

Melts in your hands, and in your hair.

I'm not sure who this product is designed for. There's virtually zero hold to it, the texture is like face cream mixed with hand sanitizer...

texture not for me

this may be a great product if you need hard hold but I prefer something a little more light. I need hold for my style, but I don't like it to feel hard and this product is hard. I do like their branding though and would be interested in checking out their other lines of products for my hair type
