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.

It only takes a tiny dab
Sampled

This stuff really lasts a long time. It only takes a small dab to create a lot of hold. I love good products, but I'm also a tight wad. So, it's a constant struggle for me to find the right balance of what I'm willing to spend vs. what quality I'm willing to settle for. That is all to say: I don't normally spend $20 on pomade. However, one jar of this stuff will last me for months.

Also, for how well it holds, the finish is softer than I expected.

I also like that this stuff works great on slightly damp hair. That's super handy when I'm rushing to get out the door on weekdays.

not for me

I like more of a matte finish from my hair products. This one makes my hair a little glossy for my liking. I'm also not a fan of the scent.

Great Product

I really like this hair product. I have thick, straight hair. It likes to stay down. This product helps give me the style I want all day. It doesn't weigh it down.

Solid Pomade
Purchased

Good hold, great texture - leaves your hair looking neat, not hard as a rock. I don't have much more to say about a hair pomade, so now I am just typing to meet the minimal word requirement for a review.

Not like other pomades!

Great smell, easy to warm in between you palms and rinses much easier off of your hands after styling your hair. I have since replaced my previously used what I'd describe as hair goop with this product and love the results!

Great smell and look
Purchased

This product has a great smell to it. Really wakes you up and starts your day off right. I have to use it liberally due to my hair being thin but with some hairspray it holds all day. Great product.

Great Stuff
Purchased

up until this point, I had been using a cheaper, store bought brand. So, I guess I don't necessarily have chops yet when it comes to hair products. I will say though, it even held up in the rain and I have very thick hair. Light shine, great hold...I'm happy with it.

Live by it!

I have thick, medium length hair and like sporting a MadMen-esque side part. I've tried lots of other products over the years and now swear by Baxter. A little goes a long way and the product holds well without being greasy or leaving hair looking wet or matted.

Really Strong Hold for Thick Hair
Purchased

I have some really thick hair, and it is hard for me to find a product that will offer the hold I need without having to use an immense amount of product. This Baxter of California pomade gets the job done with almost no effort at all, and doesn't leave my hair looking greasy, which I love.
