Let’s keep other throwbacks from our adolescence where they belong too—starting with acne, using (MALIN + GOETZ) acne treatment daytime.


Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

Natural wax helps gives this pomade its smooth, matte hold, which works with any hair type. Aloe and yucca extracts shield hair against damage while meadowfoam seed, soybean, and cannabis sativa seed infuse strands with moisture.

How to Use

Work through clean hair, damp or dry. Start with a dime-sized amount for fine hair, and use a quarter-sized amount (or more as needed) for thick or coarse hair. Comb through for a slick style or tousle for a more mussed look.

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.

I wish I'd found this sooner!

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!

Perfect Pixie

I've been rocking the pixie cut for about a year now and have tried all sorts of pomades to mold my hair without looking too slick or shiny.
Several months ago a co-worker of mine gave me a product he had brought back from the Philippines that was just about perfect. Long story short, I ran out and spent ages looking for a good replacement. Malin+Goetz's Hair Pomade is not only a good replacement, but I actually like it better!
It has a subtle but somewhat fruity scent, a matte texture and holds my hair in whatever shape I choose to style it in while also allowing me to change the style throughout the day.
It's the perfect product for any type of pixie cut.
A-Plus in my book. I will definitely be purchasing this again!
