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.
Recently taken an interest in finding alternative's to Da Wax, liked the idea of having something that wasn't so firm that it would tug my hair when I ran fingers/comb through it, but kept the shape all day. After some good reviews on YouTube I gave this a shot.
How much to use?: Not even sure what is suitable. Used a small amount 1 day, didn't seem enough, large amount the next seemed like it had no extra hold, only added to the next day's greasy feel.
Hold: Saw a youtuber who claimed this held in place all day, at best I had a few hours before my hair had a mind of it's own.
Washes: Found that if I washed my hair the day after I used it, it still felt pretty greasy, sometimes a 2nd wash still wouldn't get that out, 3 days/showers before it felt better/gone.
Container: Made out of glass, sure, the container looks more smart but myself being clumsy I smashed it in a gym changing room. Clearly, this was my own fault and nobody else's, but would have preferred plastic.
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.
I have straight thick hair and this product is recommend for my hair type and hair style I go for. Hold - It's decent, not the best by far. It will not keep my hair in place all day, but you can readjust so not too bad. Smell - smells awful in pots, cannot tell on hair so no issues. Finish - matte, very matte - hair never looks wet with this. Use - tough to get out, need to dig it out, but application after warming in hands is easy, washes off hands super easy too. But sometimes my fringe when pushed back can separate meaning I have to mess around with it to make sure it doesn't stick up. Overall it's a decent product, but I feel it's a little pricey compared to others. But It will defiantly be a go to for me
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.
