Pomade Reviews

Above all, a great haircut is going to make you look good. Second to that, a high quality hair pomade is super helpful if you want to create a cool looking men's hairstyle.

In this section we cover the most popular pomade brands and the best types of hair pomade for men to buy. You can find in-depth pomade reviews below.

Not all pomades are created equal. In general, you should avoid cheap hair pomades and hair products that you find at big box stores (walmart, target etc.) or pharmacies and drugstores. Don't bother wasting your money on brands such as Axe, or Old Spice.

What Is Pomade?

Pomade Definition:

Hair pomade comes in a variety of forms. Pomade can be greasy (oily), waxy, or water-based and is used to help style your hair.

Historically, pomade was used to give hair a slick or shiny appearance and hold hair in place. Classic men's haircuts were most often slicked back.

For most guys, we recommend a water-based pomade. Why? Because they can easily be washed out of your hair. Oil based pomades do not wash out easily. They can take days or several showers to remove from your hair.

Hair pomades come in a variety of shine finishes:

  • No shine aka matte finish
  • Low shine
  • Semi shine
  • High shine

The amount of shine that you choose is really a matter of personal preference.

Pomades also come in a variety of hold strengths:

  • Light hold
  • Medium hold
  • Strong hold

Light to medium holds are good for natural flowing hairstyles for men that are very popular right now.

Strong hold pomades help to create popular men's hairstyles such as pompadours, quiffs or mohawk hairstyles.

In each pomade review we will explain which pomades are best for:

  • Thick hair
  • Curly hair
  • Wavy hair
  • Fine hair
  • Thinning hair
  • Short hair
  • Long hair

Okay, let's get started and help you find the best hair pomade for your hair.
