A pomade can be a great styling aid for your hair, no matter what type. It helps style and keep in place the most stubborn of hair, allowing you to keep a greased nice look or style it in any other way you want.
When shopping for a pomade, you need to first consider the type of pomade you want, water or oil based. Water based pomades doesn’t give you as much shine or strong a hold as oil based pomades. They are also relatively easier to wash out while giving you a more natural styling look. Oil based pomades have a stronger hold and can even provide nutrients your hair needs for a nice shine while keeping you looking stylish throughout your hectic day.
