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.

Nice, but has to be worked.

This pomade is nice and holds hair nicely and naturally. however, it should be worked a bit in your hands first. I've found a couple times when I've been in a hurry that it leaves clumps.

Good hold for a pomade

I use a combination of products, so I subbed this for my pomade. Decent hold, matte finish and fairly easy to work after it sets. Only complaint, I think it smells like bathroom cleaner.

Great smell, held very well.

I have naturally thin hair, and this product worked perfectly. It wasn't super thick, and managed to hold my hair in shape all day. The smell was great, and had a sweet/fruity smell to it. My only complaint is that it seemed like bugs were slightly more attracted to my hair than my friends who used other products.

Does the trick!

This is a pretty subtle pomade. It's not very fragrant and it doesn't leave a slick sheen. It keeps my very thick and sort of long hair out of my face, so job well done.

Loved it!

From the faint smell to the smooth texture I feel after I apply, loving this product! I would definitely buy this product.

Not bad, but still not exactly what I am looking for

I have very thick hair. I also do not like hard, crusty feeling products. I have used several different products, mainly pomades, and I have yet to find one I really like. I was hoping this would be it. With my thick hair, I had to use quite a bit to get my hair the way I like. The look and feel were great, but it just didn't stand up as well as I would've liked. After a few hours it lost its hold and shape. Good product, just not the one for me.

Does not hold great

I have thick hair, and this product is not the greatest for it. I had it on for a few hours and the hold was fading and fast.

Not for me

It is hard for me to find a hair product I like. I have not found pomade to be of great use when styling my hair, so this seemed to be on par with others I have tried.

Great

My man uses this on his pretty-thick hair and it styles pretty well. Doesn't get too clumpy or greasy, but holds his hair in place.

Great smell! Meh for texture.

This stuff smells amazing and I like using it for that reason alone. I wouldn't say the hold is exactly "strong", but it's ok. The texture is different than I'm used to; more of a solid that I wasn't sure hold or not. It doesn't seem sticky at all.
