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.
