If you’re looking for a strong hold and low to no shine made with natural ingredients and washes out easily, then this product is for you! If however, you’re looking for crunchy or greasy hair, then I’m sorry to say, this isn’t the product for you.
During development and after releasing my fan favorite hair wax formula, people asked if I could make it in a stronger hold. Others asked for a low shine clay. Well, this is the result of those efforts. By tweaking the formula slightly and adding clay, I was able to achieve an all natural pomade with strong hold & a natural shine/look.
Barbershop- Our inspiration was an Italian barbershop. We’ve blended all the signature scents of a barbershop into this intriguing fragrance. Pairs perfectly with the matching shaving soap & aftershave. We started with a base of powdery musk, added some bergamot, orange zest, oakmoss, patchouli, and finished it with a hint of geranium.
How to Use It
There’s no right way to do it, but I prefer to use the back of my thumbnail to scrape out a small amount of clay; work it in my hands until it melts; apply to hair & style.
The History Behind It
The short story is because someone asked me to. But like all good stories, I had some personal reasons for tackling this formulation. Of course, one of those reasons was purely the challenge of making an all natural & petroleum free hair styling product that actually works. The main reason though, was I wanted something that worked for my thick hair and didn’t make it look greasy.
So, it all started when Rick the Barber asked me if I could make an all natural pomade. Well, at the time, I had just come out with my beard balm, so it wasn’t exactly out of the blue. But unlike beard balm or mustache wax, pomade has to have a relatively strong hold, be easily workable, not be ‘waxy’ or ‘hard’, and be re-style-able. It’s a pretty long list. But I was up for the challenge.
I made this hair balm because the mass market stuff just doesn't do what I wanted it to do. For decades the only options available have been petroleum based pomade or water based gel (fairly recently they've introduced a thicker gel that's of a similar consistency as pomade). Neither of these two systems work perfectly and did everything I wanted. So, I took matters into my own hands and crafted something better.
Petroleum based pomade works well, but it's made with petroleum and it left my hair unbearably greasy and untouchable. It also made my hair a little too shiny. In addition, the good stuff was very expensive to use per application. $30 for something that only lasts for 30 days!
Finally, the worst part about using pomade was that it JUST WON'T COME OUT!!! Pomade users call it "De-Greasing". And that's a pretty darn accurate description. Once it's in; it's a pain in the butt to get it out.
While the water based options were certainly easy to get out, they are crunchy or don't last all day (or even 2 hours in some cases). After some slight walking, I was no better off than if I had used no product. And don't get me started about how it lasted after even a light gym session...
So, I made this wax & butter based balm. It's easy to get out. I made it with natural butters and oils, so it conditions your hair as it styles it. And the wax lasts for hours and is restyle-able whenever you need it. Plus it smells great.
Now, it doesn’t work like your typical hair gel or pomade. You can’t stick your fingers right into it. You have to scrape some off with your thumbnail or something else and then melt it. But I think you’ll find the results to be worth it. And if you aren’t happy, you can send it back for a refund.
