Contrary to popular belief, pomade isn’t just for old men or Elvis anymore. This underrated product can help you get any hairstyle that you’re looking for, from that slicked-back look to a trendy man bun. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best pomade out there for men in 2018. We’ve chosen the three best pomades, complete with quotes from men who have actually used it!

HOW DO YOU USE POMADE?

The best way to apply pomade is to first rub it between your hands. Then start applying it toward the back, working it forward as you go. Also be sure to use it in small amounts. It’s easy to add more, but can be hard to take it off! It’s also best to use it when your hair is damp.

The trick is to treat it as a finishing touch. You don’t want it to look like you’re using anything, it’s just an extra step to add style.

WHAT IS THE BEST POMADE?

AXE CLEAN CUT

Axe’s Clean Cut Pomade creates structured styles instantly and helps you stay in control of your look. This gives you the hold you need without the hard feeling, for a clean cut, polished look.

My hair gets a little wild at times, but this pomade keeps it in place. I’ve also tried other Axe products and they don’t really work for me, it’s just this one specifically.

SHEAR REVIVAL CRYSTAL LAKE

Shear Revival Crystal Lake is considered a best pomade because it grips your hair like a strong wax, but is water soluble. It washes out quickly and easily, and smells great!

Unorthodox water-based pomades are now the way to go. These new cool kids on the block allow you to get all the characteristics of pomades and be able to wash them out at night. When I want a pomade with the slickest hair with great hold, my go-to choice is Shear Revival Crystal Lake.

BOMADE COIFFETTE BY JAO PRODUCT

best pomade

Bomade Coiffette is unique because it isn’t just a pomade, it’s a bomade — meant for use on both your hair and body! It moisturizes skin, tames flyaway hair, and softens cuticles.

I have super thick, wavy hair and am growing it out, so pomade that washes out easily and leaves hair in a better condition than it was before it was put on as important. 

Stumbled upon Bomade Coiffette by chance as I use another JAO Product. It is technically a multu-purpose balm, but is more than consistency of a pomade than a balm. The heavy essential oil content definitely lends to a strong, distinct scent (which I personally like quite a bit) but the results are the real key. Firm but flexible without leaving hair overly shiny. Washes out easily and leaves hair softer and healthier feeling.
