(MALIN+GOETZ) hair pomade

Some ’90s’ trends (like crop tops) are making a comeback, while others (the perfect flannel shirt) never went out of style. But there’s one look from our youth we hope to never see again: supershiny, so-crunchy-it-cracks gelled hair. Luckily, we can now reach for this hair pomade instead: It has the same firm hold, but with a modern matte finish—and it doesn’t leave a flaky residue behind. What’s more, it’s formulated with a range of plant extracts that protect and hydrate hair, rather than—come to think of it, we don’t even want to know what those gels were made of.

I recently cut my hair into a P!NK style mohawk and I love it! But - I've had the same bob haircut for like 10 years and had no clue how to style my new 'do. So - I sought out something natural and easy to use. This product is light, has a texture that holds well but can be changed throughout the day, and smells amazing! As a first time product user this wins a gold star and makes me confident.

Hella residue
Purchased

The hold is golden but it leaves a residue. On the tacky but dry side. Sweet smell and did I mention the hold.

Not good with thick hair
Purchased

I've really liked some of their other products, but this one really underperforms. It has no hold or styling capability. I would not recommend it for thick hair.

Good Product!
Purchased

I really like this product. I have tried countless pomades and this is the one I have found works for my hair. The waxy texture works great and doesn't leave your hair feeling oily. Great hold and washes out easily. Definitely recommend.

Light but Effective
Purchased

First impression: it doesn't register as a pomade, and I mean that in the best way possible.

The product itself is light and more creamy/waxy than a traditional heavy and greasy pomade. That lightness translates into two things: the matte finish they promise, and no weight pulling your hair down. If you have fine hair and are sick of products folding under their own weight and failing to hold your hair off your face all day - give MALIN+GOETZ a shot!

Other small notes: Smell is OK, not too feminine. It actually is a Firm hold - will keep your hair in place and UP (unlike most pomades).

Awesome product
Purchased

I purchased this product as a way to "slick back" my hair. I was not disappointed. Wet hands with a small dab of this stuff keeps my hair in place all day. Smells great as well.

firm hold, matte finish, great smell
Purchased

Sophisticated fragrance and matte finish for a more modern do. I use about a pea sized amount and it keeps my wavy hair looking great. Love this product.

I wish I'd found this sooner!
Purchased

I have very short hair and pomade is an absolute must for me. I'd used l'oreal's higher end pomade for years, but the hold was just too stiff and if my hair was messed up by the wind or taking a nap, I would have to re-wet my hair and start over. Not with this product. The hold is flexible yet stays in place. And allows for adjustments in the case of bad weather and such. The texture is creamy and not sticky and the light scent is pleasant. I am sticking with this pomade!

Great ingredients with avoiding the chemicals and bad stuff.

Treats my hair wonderfully, without any of the shine others have.
