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.

Good but not great

The pomade is a little hard and tough to get the perfect amount right out of the jar. After that you really have to work it and warm it up in your hands otherwise it is a little chunky. Other than that the hold is great and will last all day.

Good texture, flexible hold
Sampled

Feeling pretty good about getting this sample in my box last month. Tried it and felt like I barely need to use a lot of it to so the trick! Great hold, flexible texture, and stays in place all day. The only issue with clay pomaded like this is that the more u mess with it towards the end of the day, the more "flaky" it becomes. Not a dandruff type of flake but more of a residue. I assure you, I don't have dandruff so I know it must be a side effect of the product because my other waxes and pomaded don't have the same outcome. But anyways, it's a quality product overall and lasts all day

It holds well!

It has a good hold to it but I don't care for the "wet" look. I prefer a dry dusting powder like "dust-it"

Pretty good
Sampled

This product works just like it should, but it's not right for my hair texture or style. So I highly recommend it for those who would generally use a pomade, but it isn't for me.

Great start, doesn't sustain
Sampled

I think the packaging is elegant and effective, the product has a nice smell, and the texture is nice. However, after a coupe of hours, my style falls flat. I wear my hair up/back a bit with texture/separation, and over time this product just doesn't hold up like my other styling creams / clays. I will say that I prefer the way my hair looks using this product (versus my others) immediately after applying it, so perhaps I could use multiple products to achieve optimum results....

Great hold and feel

I used this on wet hair and it kept a great style all night and was pliable. I liked not having crunchy hair.
