Baxter of California Hard Cream Pomade

As a gentleman's staple, pomade has pulled off plenty of timeless styles (Grant, Presley, Dean, et al), but repeated daily use can leave even a style icon’s hair feeling like a bird's nest. Enter this robust formula, which combines the best of a cream styler—healthy, soft, smooth finish—with that of a pomade—strong hold with light gloss. Apply to damp hair for some gloss, or to dry hair for a shine-free look. Either way, expect your friends to cop a feel.

What i've been searching for. I love this pomade. Its not like the others and gives me the look I want. I've tried many others like for example ''crew'' and this is a better quality. Its not sticky and to hard like the others. Its all I use now.

on behalf of my husband

First, a confession. When this Baxter Hard Cream Pomade arrived in one of our birchboxes, I misread the label and thought it was HAND cream. So I tried it myself. It went on a little sticky and then it magically absorbed into my hands and they felt actually soft and conditioned! Silly, yes. When I realized it was a hair product I gave it over to my husband (who also has better vision and uses it on his hair BTW), and he really loves this pomade. So much so that he told me to buy 2 jars.

The best

By far the best hair product out there! Great look and hold without the look of having used anything in your hair

Nice product
SampledPurchased

Pretty good product for very specific hair styles. I find this product works better for me in winter than summer. It can make hair dry and stiff and almost feel like cotton candy which doesn't feel nice, so I use a softening product before to give it some shine and pliability.

OOhh...that smell.
Purchased

I really love the smell and feel of this product. Everything about it says 'luxe'.

Don't let the word 'Hard' in the name fool you. The cream is set inside the container 'hard', but as soon as you scoop some out, its soft and lush and easy to move.

It holds my VERY straight hair in place and does not dry it out, which is so good I can't say enough about it.

I would buy this again.

awesome

I love the smell and is very durable. It feels very fresh. It doesn't make your hair super hard is soft and it gives it that wet look.

Favorite pomade
SampledPurchased

This stuff is great, it keeps your hair in place and looking great without a hard crusty finish. I can't stand the hard shiny finish on my hair. This stuff gives you a natural look and a natural feel while keeping your hair in place, I highly recommend.

Non-greasy pomade

The product has a bit stronger of a hold than a typical pomade and feels less greasy than they usually do as well.

Good hold, light weight, great for texture...
Purchased

This has become my favorite product for fixing my hair. I like to spike my hair, but like to keep away from the hard hat effect certain products create. I really liked that with this pomade, is that if you apply to dry hair it will allow you to style as you wish but provide a look as if you don't really have any product in your hair at all. The control is good, but you shouldn't expect your hair to stay 100% in place with this product after 8 hrs, as it's not meant for an extra firm hold.

If you apply it when your hair is a little damp or wet, it mimics the 'wet look' a bit more. To apply to your hair, place small amount on palms and rub your hands together, then rub into your hair starting with your palms [in circular motions] as this provides more even distribution of the product than just using your finger tips. Then use your fingers to sculpt your hair as preferred.

I will point out that one flaw, is that it does feel a little greasy, not a lot just a little if you run your hand through your hair. However, it washes out exceptionally easy with shampoo which cannot be said for many products.

Overall, definitely worth the purchase I made after getting a sample of this in muh box.
