Pomade has long been used to style hair and make hair shine. It holds straight strands in place so they don't fall apart in strands. A pomade is a fairly wet product, only the creams are even wetter. That is why they are often used for classic looks, such as the 50s and 60s slick looks. The hold can vary widely, but the shine is usually high and therefore suitable for those polished looks. An exception to this are the clay pomades, which is a kind of hybrid product of a pomade and a clay. These often give a higher hold and a matte finish.
Pomades are available in different strengths and are available on a water-based and oil-based basis. Because a pomade is often slightly wetter, you can also use some pomades if you have wavy or curly hair. Her Stuff offers a wide range of the best brands such as Baptism , Refining and natural Lard . Use the product filters to see which Pomade suits you best.
The popularity of pomades has increased enormously in recent years. This can also be seen in the fact that there are now water-based pomades. It is obvious that one is water based and the other oil based, but the question is which one is ideal for when. A water-based pomade is very easy to wash out, which is a big difference with an oil-based pomade. You can't restyle a water-based pomade as well, you often have to make your locks slightly wet. You also need more of it, precisely because it is easy to wash out.
The traditional pomade is oil-based. Your locks stay in place perfectly in wind and weather. You may have to run your fingers through your locks again to style it again, but then it's just like in the morning. This also means that you have to put in more effort to wash the pomade out of your locks. You need less of an oil-based pomade, as it is less easy to wash out. So there is always a little bit left in your locks, so you need less the next day. However, this is not a bad thing, today's pomades contain many natural oils that also take good care of your locks. So it is not an attack on your hair.
