Birchbox Breakdown

Refined by Imperial'’s barbers over two and a half years of development, this pomade is a testament to the power of patience. It goes on smooth, lasts all day, and features an adjustable hold that increases as you add more product. The result is a versatile styler that can sculpt most any hairdo—all with a soft, non-shiny finish.

How to Use

The strength of this styler depends on how much you use. To keep a hairdo in place, apply a small amount to damp hair. For more serious hold, use a more generous amount on dry hair. It can also be reactivated for a quick midday restyle by adding a little water.

Good gel/pomade hybrid

It was like a Gel/pomade hybrid, it works well. Pretty cool stuff. I will probably look for something else to try out though, just to experiment.

Not quite what I expected...
Purchased

Maybe I am not up on my hair product lingo, but I expected something a little less gelatinous. It's a strange texture...I guess like a gel, but something that you would usually find in a squeeze tube, not a tub. I think the tub made me assume that it had a more solid texture somewhere in between a gel and what I would consider a pomade. My husband didn't like it immediately, so I tried it on my sons and they hate it too. It dries very, very hard and sticky. I even tried it on myself and it just made my hair feel sticky too. I will continue to experiment with it, because I feel like maybe I could find a way to use it somehow (it's a big tub). So, I am assuming that this might be a good product for someone, I am just giving it two stars because it didn't work for us and I feel the description was a bit misleading for me. I wasn't able to "adjust for varying textures and level of hold" nor did it leave our "hair with a soft, non-shiny finish." It was a strong hold, sticky product that might be good for a style that needed a rock-hard finish.

Great value
Purchased

I've been looking for something like this for a long time and have finally found it with this product. I have a hard time finding gels that hold my hair for long periods of time and this is the stuff. Very satisfied with Imperial Gel Pomade and it's such a great deal for the amount you get. I wont need to get another one for a few months!

Great Gel
Purchased

I ordered it for my BF but I use it just as much as he does. The gel is a clear color and not yellow like the picture on Birchbox. It has a very light great scent, very unisex. For women that might not wash their hair every days this product is great because it does not flakey or get pasty. I also really like their pomade for fly aways when straightening hair.

A Versatile Gel for Afro-Textured Hair
Purchased

This gel really does the trick. It gives a pliable hold without feeling heavy or clunky, worked into wet/dampened hair offers an even lighter feel / weight.
