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

Happy hair
Sampled

I loved this product. I use gel in my hair every day and this was the perfect product for my long flowing locks. It also has a great hold and fresh scent with out it being too girly.

Love it
Sampled

My hair is fine and pomade usually just feels like grease in my hair. This stuff feels nice, smells great and holds my hair for a decent amount of time. Wish it would hold for longer, but I still think it's great.

its a bit too shinny
Sampled

The product holds nicely, but it has a bit of shine to it. A little too much for my taste. Over all I like it, but don't love it.

Nice product
Sampled

It has a nice scent and is okay. However it's a little too heavy for my hair and would keep me from purchasing it.

Great
Sampled

Hair looks fresh and product feel nice to apply. Doesn't lose pliability during the day so you can refix if it screws up.

good for longer hair
Sampled

Requires a lot more product to actually hold then I'm used to, but once you get the right amount, it has a pretty nice texture.

Smells Great!
Sampled

I am not a hair product fan and I was very reluctant to try this product. But wow it smelled great! I worked a dab into my hair and was very happy with the hold, the amount of sheen and again, the sent. Very nice product.

Decent pomade
Sampled

My hair is fine but very thick, so pomades aren't my go-to hair product. That said, this product worked alright for me. To get a decent hold, I had to use a fair amount of the product, which made my blond hair look a little on the greasy side.
