I don't have much experience with putting effort into my hair. It's a recent thing. I got this product for my new side part haircut after trying a few other pomades, like Imperial. The two reasons why I bought it: a low shine pomade was exactly what I was looking for... and the brand looks awesome! Seriously, the name and graphic design were most of the appeal for me.
Size: Speaking of the jar, I was shocked at how small it was when I received it — guess I didn't think about how big 4 oz was. I was worried at first that it would only last me a few weeks or a month, but after about two weeks of daily use, I've barely scratched the surface. So that's encouraging! Use about a dime-size. Trust me, it works fine in small amounts and taking big chunks out will just waste it.
Smell: There *is* a smell when you open the jar. It smells like Beeswax, primarily. But it's very faint and goes away as soon as you start applying it. It's a very natural smell, since there's no "Fragrance" with hidden ingredients. You know exactly what's in the jar!
Hold: As a Medium Hold pomade, you can mess up your hair a bit, both on purpose and on accident. But it's really easy to put back together with a comb or other utensil, sometimes even after you get bedhead. Very impressive! You can use a larger amount for a stronger/stiffer hold, but be careful you don't use wasteful amounts.
Overall I'm really happy with this product. Thank you, Clan Battle-Born!
Awesome Product. Great Volume, high texture, good hold and endurance. An additionally benefit is, that the product conditions the hair. The bayrum scent is noticible but infoffense. I like the scent.
Highly recommend this matte paste. One of the best you can get.
Styles nicely and not to much shine afterwards. It's just right. Washes out with no problem. I highly recommend this pomade to anyone looking for a high quality natural pomade! Love it!
The name of this pomade isn't correct. It may be an "original pomade", but to tell the truth, it's a perfect fantastic pomade - the best I ever had.
Love this stuff! My hair is hard to work with, but when I use this, I feel like I can finally get it under control and have it look the way I want it to, before I step out for the day.
I have never done a product review before because past products I've used have just been 'ok.' I can truly say that Battleborn grooming products are great! They are the only products that work really well on my hair. I have thick, coarse, Italian hair that has mind of its own on most days. I style it in a quiff type hairstyle and the clay and pomade really get the job done for me. I sometimes even mix both together and it works really well. It gives a ton of texture and great hold. Your hair never gets hard or crunchy and it smells absolutely amazing. Battleborn honestly makes the best products! I will be trying the matte paste next and I am expecting greatness with that product as well. I just wish you guys had a Canadian stockist because shipping prices to Canada are terrible. Keep making it, and I will keep buying it!
This clay gives a firm hold to whether towel-dried or blow-dried hair. When I used it on towel-dried hair, it has a more slick look but still a ton of textures. On blow-dried hair and OMG, it's perfect. It's a texture monster. It also held my hair all day and still looks perfect over a good night of sleep. I just wake up and restyle and go out again. It's also really lightweight and not heavy like other clays on the market. It also won't make your hair greasy, which is the main problems of other clays I have used. Washing out of your hair and hands is also a breeze. I only use shampoo my hair one time and it washes everything out. After styling my hair, I just need water to wash it off my hands. Highly recommended for those who love using clay for that natural looking style!!!
I have tried the clay pomade from Battle Born before and I was very impressed. This has similar ingredients so it is very light in the hair and tons of texture. The matte paste also has a firm hold similar to the clay pomade. This matte paste is more slick for me when I apply it on towel-dried hair. Compared to the clay pomade, the clay pomade is less slick. I love both products and would recommend both!!!
I usually add a drop of water to my hands to minimize tug and pull which this product has. the result: product beads up, balls up in my hand, rendering application useless. very disappointing!
Being a person who does not gravitate towards pastes I found myself really liking this product. It’s easy to use and has just the right amount of slickness to make the application easy and just the right amount of hold to use as a standalone product. Endurance and overall use is great as well.
I really enjoyed using this product as my “set it and forget it” type product. Something that I know will hold up all day, and this clay pomade is especially great because it doesn’t weigh my hair down like others, so I won’t have sad hair at the end of the day. A must try!
This hair styling product will always be on my shelf as my everyday go to! More a paste than pomades I was use to, but good hold and love the scent. Customer service is outstanding and happy to support small business!!!
This product walks a fine line in that it works great in dry hair as a clay but also works well in damp hair as pomade. With a few scoops you can finger comb a great dry hair style as well as a great pomp! It has all the best qualities of a clay as well as a pomade. If you’re looking for a brand new product to try you can’t go wrong with this Clay pomade!
From the scent, to the scoop, to the ease of application and styling this matte paste has it all. Classic Bay Rum scent from Battle Born Grooming is amazing. The scoop is super creamy, breakdown is great, it applies to the hair with ease and styling is a breeze. This is a must have for anyone who enjoys quality matte pastes.
