For a softer sheen and a stronger hold, try English Laundry Shiny Hair Wax.

Birchbox Breakdown

When it comes to your coif, shine shouldn’t come at the expense of comfort and control. Avoid a crusty hair gel catastrophe with this firm-but-pliable pomade. Pairing a medium hold with a polished finish, it makes dapper a lot more doable.

How it Works

A base of water and castor oil makes this flexible formula shiny, but not sticky. Its medium holding power can craft a range of classic looks, from a pompadour to a Don-Draper side part.

How to Use

Rub a small amount between palms and work into damp or dry hair. Style as usual.

Water (Aqua), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, VP/VA Copolymer, Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin

OK But not my Style

This is probably better suited for someone really wanting a controlled look. Was not bad, smelled nice, but just was not me

Great hair product
Sampled

Nice pomade, goes in well, not chunky like other products. I like the little bit of shine, hold is medium, provides texture. I would buy a full size.

Worked but was clumped
Sampled

Did what it says it will do but it was not very consistent when rubbed in. Could have been my fault but I'll keep trying it until it's gone

Too sticky
Sampled

I don't care for this product. It smells weird and, even though it's very sticky it doesn't hold as well as I need, or last the full work day. it may be better for shorter hair or just for a couple of hours.

Not normally a pomade user, but...
Sampled

Most of the time, I'm fine with my hair a little messy, but I was at a semi-formal event. Fresh off a haircut, my hair stuck up a little. I used the pomade, and it behaved all night. Good stuff.

Not bad

Like the product but does hold up all day. If I sweat at all it makes my hair look greasy
