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.

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.

Baxter can do no wrong!

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.

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

Great

Love it. Really works well, especially with my thinning hair. I like the texture (not too hard, but smooths out well), and the scent is age appropriate.

Love it. Stiff. Doesn't look like I'm wearing anything.

I've used Baxter before and have loved their other hair products and this product is the same, great hold and smells good as well!

Another excellent product from Baxter of CA
Sampled

I have tried several of Baxter of CAs hair products and each one has been excellent, with the Hard Cream Pomade being no exception. The hold is firm, but it keeps my short hair looking very natural, not greasy or shiny. I typically style with my hands or a comb but it looks great either way. Hold lasts all day and through my workouts in the evening. I absolutely recommend this product, although I can't vouch for the effect on medium to long hair.

Of the 3 hair wax samples I received, this was the best. Had a good matte hold.

It's pretty good

Hair Pomade is a great thing. A little goes a long way so it last a long time. Great hold in my hair and also allows movement.

Baxter is that good stuff...

I'm a pomade guy, but this is great to blur the line between actual pomade and clay. Very good hold.
