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.
This was easily one of the best clay pomades I've used. Awesome bay rum scent that Battle Born is known for, easy scoop, smooth breakdown, easy application and styling. It gives a matte finish that you would expect from a clay, and you can achieve a wide range of styles with it. Use a little for a natural, more loose or casual style or use more for a tight and dapper style with sharp comb lines. You can't miss with Battle Born grooming products.
Great product all around! It has everything I like in a matte paste! Love the packaging. Scent is the classic Bay Rum scent that Battle Born has really perfected. The look, texture, and scoop is great! Break down has a little tug but spreads very nicely. Application is easy. I use a little water or damp hair to let product spread to all hairs evenly. Styling was easy as well. Final styled result is classic. Holds very well and is soft (not crunchy) in the hair. Restyles easy and washes out without a problem. If you're looking for a solid well rounded matte paste....look no further.
Hello guys, gals, and non-binary pals! It's time to review battle born's matte paste. Firstly, let me start with my hair type... I have medium thickness and thick density. What's that mean? My hair is in between fine and thick but I have a TON of it on my head.
Tin (5 of 5) - This product comes in a 4oz amber glass jar with a simple, classy looking label.
Scent (5 of 5) - BAY RUM. If you like bay rum scents, this one is easily one of the best on the market. It's a masculine sweet woodsy scent with a hint of spice. It's SO good.
Scoop/breakdown (4 of 5) - The scoop is really soft, but the breakdown is where this one loses a star for me. It's a tad difficult to spread evenly around my hands, but it doesn't have clumps or waxy bits that take extra pressure and time to breakdown - so that's a plus!
Application (3 of 5) - It's what you would expect from a paste product... since it has superb texture, it also has quite a bit of tug and pull. I don't find it to be an uncomfortable experience but I'm also not tender headed. I can definitely see some people with finer hair feeling uncomfortable during application - hence the 3 of 5.
Styling (5 of 5) - This product is SO easy to style with and its incredibly responsive. Your hair will go where you want and how you want with no trouble.
Endurance (5 of 5) - For my hair type and length (to the tip of my nose, so about 4 inches at its longest) the endurance was excellent. I styled my hair in the morning and went an entire day without having to restyle - of course, I love to finger comb and play with my hair so about 6 hours in I decided to style it differently and it stayed put for another few hours. I'd rate this as a firm to heavy hold if you layer in the product, OR you can get a medium/firm hold with just a scoop or two.
Overall (4 of 5) - This is an excellent product. It gives awesome texture, has a superb hold, and great scent. It's versatility is what really stands out to me... this really can do tight, clean styles or loose, messy styles - it all depends on how much you put in. If you want a 'do it all' type of product - this is the one for you!
Hello guys, gals, and non-binary pals! Here's my review on battleborn's clay pomade... firstly, you should know that I have dyed hair (obvious in the pictures) and my hair type is medium thickness with thick density. What's that mean? My hair isn't fine or thick, it's somewhere in between and I have a TON of it on my head. Okay, now then - let's talk about the product - everything will be on a scale of 5, with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.
Tin (5 of 5) - It comes in a 4oz glass amber jar with a simple, clean looking label.
Scent (5 of 5) - If you're a fan of bay rum, you're going to LOVE this bay rum scent. It's SO good. And if you don't know what bay rum smells like... it's a bit woody and sweet, with a touch of spice. It's on the masculine side, but as a lady, I love smelling it on myself throughout the day.
Scoop/breakdown (5 of 5) - The scoop on this product is soft and the breakdown is very easy - there's no clay clumps or wax balls that require extra effort to breakdown.
Application (4 of 5) - In longer hair (like to the bottom of the lip or longer) its got some tug and pull, BUT it doesn't give tangly ends in my hair. I recently cut my hair to a more manageable length (to the tip of my nose) and there's minimal tug and pull at this length.
Styling (5 of 5) - This product is INCREDIBLY intuitive, once it's in the hair it styles with ease. I've used this product on and off for nearly 2 weeks and its SUPER consistent, which is amazing. I know when I put this in my hair that its going to give me the style I want and its going to be quick so I get on with my day.
Endurance (3 of 5) - Okay, This is where I believe most people will think this product falls short. When I was sporting my longer hair (again, past the bottom of my lip) it would only hold for an hour or so before I found myself finger combing my hair back into position. With my shorter cut, I found that it lasted longer, about 3 hours before I started finger combing my hair back into place. For me, I don't mind restyling so it isn't a big deal - but I know many people who want their hair to just stay - and this product won't last more than 5 without a restyle.
Overall (4 of 5) - This is an excellent product. It's so much better than 90% of the stuff here on amazon. It smells great, it scoops soft, and styles easily. If you're looking for a home-brewed clay, made with care and GOOD ingredients - look no further, you've found a winner.
I love me the matte paste, incredibly smooth and easy to apply, a beautiful texture and finish from the jar as well. It’s perfect for everyday use! Great on my hair when it was longer and shorter.
The scent is fantastic, falls in line with the other Battle Born products that I bought. Same scent. If you are into Pomade’s with a matte finish this will be right up your alley. Easy to scoop, easy to break down, washes off your hands with soap, and comes out of your hair with shampoo. Works well for short to medium hair length.
Been using battle born pomade since last year and I have to say the original pomade my favorite so when I heard they were going to release a clay pomade soon I was excited to try it. Now that I’ve had it for 4 days I have to say this clay is awesome. It breaks down easily and it applies to you’re hair easily also. You do feel the tackiness when you start applying it but ones you start using a comb it’s easy to mold to how you want it. I recommend there original pomade and the clay one. Thanks for making great products here in Nevada Battle Born!
Battle Born Grooming Co. Clay Pomade is an Instant Classic! The smell is clean and refreshing. The scoop and application is super easy. Styling is a breeze. And the look it gives when styled in the hair is absolutely incredible. Feels good in the hair and holds very well. Doesn't leave your hair feeling dead like some products. Washes out very easy. Love this stuff and highly recommend it! #battleborngrooming
Battle Born's Clay Pomade is advertised as a Firm Hold, Matte Finish hair product, and it delivers on all counts! The scoop of the product is a little thick, but it breaks down with minimal effort, and it applies just as easily to the hair. Applying to dry hair or as a pre + post styler will guarantee the most amount of hold, but for me and my thick hair it held all day with minimal restyling needed. The finish really allows for some great finger combing to get fantastic texture, and the volume is top notch! It's an easy washout as well, completely gone in one shampoo/conditioner. I would highly recommend this product especially for folks out there with thick hair, it will tame the mane and keep your style insane (ly good)!
The “Bayrum” scent is legit! Easy to scoop. Easy to break down and apply. Washes out with a single shampoo. Use for a textured style. For my hair, the hold is in the firm range.
WOW...Fantastic POM. A hold that you can restyle or easily wash out. Nice light scent. Buy some, it's the BOMB and BOOM, the Ladies love it.
This is a great product the bay rum scent is not overpowering has great hold
Amazing product from Battle Born! This is exactly what I was looking for in a pomade. All natural, water based, cruelty free, and locally made here in Vegas. The Bay Rum fragrance is not overpowering and slowly fades throughout the day but never completely disappears. The hold is perfect. Not greasy or crunchy and has a natural matte sheen. No white residue is left behind either. You will definitely need a shampoo to wash out followed by a conditioner. My stylist also recommended a clarifying shampoo once a week to remove any buildup. Please keep up the amazing work on your products Battle Born Grooming!
The big plus side for me with this pomade is that it is made of all natural ingredients. I struggle with psoriasis of the scalp and most hair styling products makes my scalp break out. I decided to try BattleBorn as it is not filled with unnecessary chemicals. After two-weeks of trying it out, so far no scalp breakouts! For that reason I am sold. The only thing to be aware of is that it is a medium hold pomade. I would like a little more firm hold, but am ok with it since it is healthy for my scalp. That is more important to me.
