For the past 10 years, I have used a wax stick. And if you have been using something for so long that you do not feel comfortable changing, why do it? Because Baxter of California Hard Cream Pomade was awesome! I haven't used a different product in my hair in almost 10 years. I was obviously skeptical of using a different product. This, people, was amazing. It changed the style of my hair and had the same feel as my wax stick, except better. I will definitely buy this product. The only bad thing about this product is that I am almost out!
