To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have medium/long thick straight hair and this product worked really well. You do have to use a fair amount and I always blow dried my hair before applying product. Would not recommend on wet hair as you'll just waste the product. Also noted that it comes off pretty easily with shampoo etc.
If you're a cheapskate like me, you'll have wasted a small fortune buying off-the-shelf supermarket hair products, thinking it's cheaper to settle for lots of lame products. I decided to get this after many 5-star reviews, and it's honestly the best. I have a quiff sort of haircut, and this is somehow a really high hold AND matt and natural looking. I use sea salt spray on wet hair, blow dry and style with this on my dry hair. You'll never use anything else, trust me.... also, don't need much AT ALL, so it'll last a while (I admit I haven't finished one yet so I can't say for sure)
Also, few comments on the smell... it's an aniseed smell, like sambuca, which is an aquired taste but I like it. It's not nearly strong enough that you'd notice it once it's on your head.
I've never used a product quite like this before, it's like a very stiff wax in the jar, but warmed in the hands its very easy to put on and not like clays I've used before. I use about a pea sized amount and it holds my hair all day, it looks natural and isn't sticky.
The only negative is the fragrance, I don't like it! But it's a minor detraction from the best holding hair product I've tried, and I'll be buying it again once I've finished it.
Went through a phase of buying water based pomaded, oil based pomades and waxes trying to find a good product that would keep the shine down but be strong enough to keep my hair in place without feeling like super glue. Bought this by accident one day and haven't used any others since. For anyone having trouble getting it out try using the back of your nail and push away from you, always gets the perfect amount for me.
This is really good stuff. It’s very firm in the jar but softens quickly in your hands and feels somewhere between a stiff paste and a wax.
It works very easily into hair and sets almost instantly with a firm hold. The finish is strong and matte, and allows you to build height and thickness with ease. You can also restyle through the day without really losing much of the original hold or finish.
It washes out very easily - I just use standard H&S shampoo, and Baxter clay pomade doesn’t leave hair feeling greasy or sticky after you wash it.
The jar is very heavy and feels premium - I’m glad it glass from an environmental POV, but it does add weight to your travel luggage etc.
Overall I’m really pleased with the product. It’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for and one jar will last months.
I almost never review anything, but because of how good this product is I thought it thoroughly deserved one. I also want to ensure it never goes out of business because I don't know how I could replace it.
First of all it is so easy to use, it holds my hair in place which is really strong, but you can also re-adjust it if needed if your hair gets moved at any point.
I only need to use a tiny amount when applying to give it a good strong hold. This means a relatively small sized jar lasts a very long time and you get great value for money.
Also after applying to your hair, it gives a really natural look, there's no bad shine or smells or anything from it
Best product I’ve found for thicker hair. Easy to wash out, doesn’t look or feel like it’s there but my hair is hard to Keep it where i what it and this does the trick! Tried cheaper options but don’t stay the same so would recommend spending bit more and getting good result!
Love this product, been using it for about 2 years now and each tub lasts me about 6 months. Great finish and keeps hair in position for a whole day with ease. Can play about with the shape throughout the day and it maintains the hold. I use it on a medium front upstyle look and it is hands down the best product i have tried (and there has been a few) - no hairspray required which is unusual for my very thick hair.
