Frequently Asked Questions

What is pomade?

Pomade “grease” is a wax and oil based hair dressing product that adds sheen and ability to sculpt any traditional style. Some of the best benefits are that it doesn’t wash out or sweat out. After most activities, it only takes a couple flips of a comb and you’re back to looking good!

“Water-based” Pomades are a gel like product that adds a little flair. They will wash right out just like a gel but, unlike most gels ours can be re-combed and restyled!

If you’re having trouble with how hard some of our products are, try these options- You can run under warm water, use a hair dryer, or a coffee warmer to soften heavier weights. Sometimes the use of a blow dryer helps to spread an even coat and to style.

How do I wash out pomade?

Pomade is an oil and wax based product that gives the look of your hair shine and hold. It’s formulated to be a long lasting and not easily removed. However, yes, it will eventually wash out. We recommend using a clarifying shampoo or any type of dish soap. Additionally, in order to protect the natural oils and moisture in your hair, we also highly recommend using a high quality conditioner.

  • The hold is strong and the smell is great. My hair doesn’t look greasy. Also, I have lighter brown hair and when I put this in it, it gets a much darker tone. Great stuff, and will be buying it again when it runs out (which will be awhile)

  • Awesome old school style pomade. Best hold out of any grease I’ve tried. Has an awesome coconut smell as well

  • Loved this stuff. It holds hair in place. Totally does what it is intended to do and lasts all day. I thought it had a good smell too! It is water based so it washes off really easily. Works great and you can guarantee I will be buying it when I run out.
