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.

Not great

I found the consistency to be a little thick for my taste. It’s clumpy and hard to apply.

Great product.

Loved it! The hold was perfect and didn't leave my hair looking greasy.

Product has been great for me!

This product has been great for me and what I want my hair to do. I have thick short (less than 2 in) hair that can get oilier by the end of the day.
This product has not made my hair oilier, than it naturally is. Since this product is a water based pomade is washes out easily with no residue left over like some wax based pomades.
This pomade offers a more natural look with barely any shine. It is not matte though. It holds pretty well if you use enough pomade, and you can easily reshape throughout the day with a little water. It makes my hair feel soft to the touch and not sticky but it does have a pretty good hold, which is hard to describe. It is not the strongest hold product ever made as your hair is able to move through your fingers.
I am glad I found this product as I do not want a wet slicked look and I don't want a product that will make my hair and scalp oilier.

Haven't stopped using this stuff since I was introduced to it years ago by Birchbox.
Love the hold and texture created by the pomade.

Nice scent and easy to work into hair. Doesn't get hard like other products

Good stuff

I liked this product. It's a lot like my favorite cream pomade. I may have to pick up a full size jar. It doesn't weight down my hair like many similar products and controls my hair all day.

Kind of weird but smells good

Wasn't the most appropriate for the styling I like to do, I guess, but that doesn't mean it was bad. Not as effective for the hard part.

Product leaves hair dry but formerly held based on how it is styled. I would use this product again.

Since my hair is hard to keep it up, this pomade did the trick to have a nice messy style that I like
