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.

I had wanted a hair product that held well but didn't leave my hair with flakes after a full day. It holds strong and lasts all day. Fantastic Product.

Does the job!
Purchased

It is a good cream/paste. Don't need to use too much. Seems to work as advertised, but it isn't my husbands favorite. Definitely more of a paste consistency and takes a bit of work to spread out and blend into hair, but overall seems to be a good product!

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.
