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.

Good hold

This product holds my hair good but applying it is rather difficult. The cream is extremely stiff and mattes or clumps up in my hair rather than spreading in evenly.

Great for daily use
Purchased

A little of this product goes a long way. I apply it to my hair when it's still wet and it provides a strong enough hold but my hair still looks and feels soft. Just enough shine. I like my hair clean cut, parted to the side for work and this product does the trick.

I like it!

I'm not a big hair product person, but I enjoy this product. I have thicker hair and this tames it well and lasts all day long.

Love this product

This is the first time I ever used a pomade for my hair and I love it. The feeling that it leaves in my hair is better than what I typically see with wax or gel. I was able to shape my hair easily and continue working with it throughout the day. The scent this product has also is pleasant and it actually another major benefit of this product. I feel like this will certainly be a purchase soon.

Not bad

Not bad as far as pomades go. I'd definitely use it again, but it's not something I'd go out of my way to get.

Overall good pomade, not for me

I have thicker hair, so I'm usually looking for products that are thicker and more paste-y. I'm not into the shine look, so this product isn't for me.

excellent product
Purchased

The cream pomade works exactly like they say it does.
It's a pomade so you get medium shine but the cream let's you have a medium to hard hold.

Over all a great product..

Works great but smells like a band-aid
Purchased

This product works really well. I have very thick, wavy hair that is sometimes very unmanageable. I normally use Material but did not feel like going to the salon to purchase it, so I figured I would give this product a try. It works really well, better than material in my opinion.

The only problem is, it smells like a fresh band-aid. It has that latex/medical smell to it. It doesn't even go away after a full day.

I am teetering on 3-4 stars because the product works great but you can definitely smell the product in your hair all day.

Ehh nice but not for me

This product has a stronger hold than I need for my hair. It is perfect when you want to keep your hair in place without the crispy feeling of gel.

Nice, but has to be worked.

This pomade is nice and holds hair nicely and naturally. however, it should be worked a bit in your hands first. I've found a couple times when I've been in a hurry that it leaves clumps.
