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've used Uppercut products in the past, notably their Monster Hold pomade, and a few of their combs. Looking for a more premium matte product I thought I'd try this out. It's got good hold, and washes out fine, but applying it to dry mid-long hair is horrible, it goes SO matte that it's difficult to get your hands through it and style properly. You'd be better off spending a third of the money and getting a VO5 product, as smells better, is easier to style, lasts just as long though doesn't wash out as well.
Pretty decent stuff. I'm a 35 year old with slightly wavy, shortish, thinning hair. It does a good job of holding my barnet in place without being super sticky / rigid, and washes out easily. Smells caramel-ish. Quite nice. Still holds the next day, although hair has fluffed up a bit by then... so not too bad for slightly messy styles either.
I tend to alternate with Layrite original pomade, which holds & restyles better than this, but feels slightly greasier after a couple of days. Both are great. I tend towards this when my hair gets slightly longer and I don't want any sort of shine to my look.
It required brute force to open the lid, it was a dirty mess, the plastic seal inside was broken hence the product had leaked out, and harden at the edges. The picture was taken after wiping up the lid. I have bought a cheaper product with 100 times better packaging than this one. Highly disappointed.
The product itself is very good. My barber uses it and that's what made me buy it. However, the condition in which it arrived was terrible. The tin lid didn't fit the tin and consequently the product had leaked out and had even rusted the lid and tin with dried bits of the product caked over it. I was dead set on returning it but in the end have decided to keep it and decanted the product into another container I had at home. When you pay a bit extra for these things you expect a lot better than this. Quite simply, I won't be buying from this seller again and note others have left similar reviews regarding this issue. The only reason I gave four for the product and one for the seller, who really needs to rethink how they are packing and delivering the item. I'd happily pay more to have it still in it's own tin and free of rust!
Love this product. First got it overseas at a barbers shop. Quality product. A little goes a long way. It is on the pricier side but worth treating yourself. Great hold. Washes out easily at end of day..
Great product been using it for the last year or two, easy to apply good hold (but not too stiff) easy to wash and brush out. The 3 Stars are because last time I ordered it was £12.75 this time it’s £17!! Shop around I’ve found other sellers out side of Amazon selling the same product for less the £13.
I`m not that big on hair products, and I`m not that good at doing anything with my hair in general. However, this product is easy to use, feels great to use, and holds for a good amount of time. I`ve used it for a year or two (tried the other uppercut variants but the green one is definitely the one for me).
