1) extreamly plyable
2) has awesome light grapefruit notes
3) works very well on super thick hair
Prior to this I was using American Crew's fiber cream, and while that stuff worked just fine I really hated the tacky texture, and because of this it was all too easy to inadvertently tug on my hair while applying it, bringing my hand back down to find I'd pulled out a hair or two. Next!
From here I went to Mister Pompadour's Moroccan Texture Paste, but it was a bit too lightweight. I'm not really sure how to describe my hair in detail, but it's a typical side-part, clippered on sides, longer on top and parted to the right, and I need a decent bit of hold because 1) I live in a particularly windy area and 2) I like driving with the windows down.
And here we are with Baxter's Hard Cream Pomade. I knew that typical pomade wasn't quite what I wanted, seeing as I don't want my hair looking wet or really "done up" etc., and just wanting a relatively natural look with solid hold, but not to the point where it looks like I'm wearing a hair-shaped hat. Overall I'm very happy with the results. There's virtually no shine at all, applying the hard cream is a breeze (however it does start to dry out and become a bit tacky if you fuss with it for too long), the scent is subtle and pleasant (but unremarkable), and while I haven't finished off a jar yet, at the rate I've been going I can see a jar lasting me a pretty good amount of time. If I had to choose one complaint it'd be that I usually have to style my hair pretty quickly to avoid hitting that point where it tacks up and starts to pull, but if you apply this stuff while your hair is a bit damp you likely won't have this problem - otherwise you can either use more cream or just speed up your styling process.
To be honest, when I picked this up I half expected to find it to be not-quite-right just like the others, but for me it's pretty close to perfect. I've also been using a sea salt spray prior to using this cream just to achieve a bit more of that natural look, but I don't feel that's necessary at all and this cream is doing the vast majority of the legwork in that regard.
All-in-all I really enjoy this stuff, and will pretty surely be buying another jar when this one runs out.
I like to run my fingers through my hair throughout the day so I won’t be purchasing it again, however the high quality makes me want to try Baxter of California’s other products.
How I use it: Dry hair with a very slight amount of dampness. Almost none. Then scoop out a good amount and spread in the style you want. It sets fast, so you’ve got about 20 seconds. Then don’t touch it.
Layering is the best method of application for many hair products, but not this one. Use a good amount right at the start.
However I think it is a bit pricey. I started using Dove pomade and got very similar results for half the price. I love Baxter's product line, and it was hard to part from this one, but I am saving $10 a month now by getting Dove's.
