Pomade is categorized under the hair gel variety but it still has some different features. Usually pomade are water-based formula and are made from petroleum jelly. Conventional pomades were first made with petroleum jelly, but recently, we now have pomades appearing in water-based formula. The hairsnerd website has some of the Best Pomade for Men 2018 in stock.
Water-based pomades can be quickly cleaned off compared to petroleum jelly. Petroleum jelly will stick to your hair for some days unless you shower for at least five times per day. The most widely used petroleum jelly is the one referred to as Murray’s Pomade while for the water-based pomade, the most popular variety is the Suavecito Pomade. These three pomades varieties might not necessarily be the most effective, but they fall under the most used items.
As highlighted above, Suavecito falls under the water-based pomade variety and it originated from Santa Ana, California. Let us analyze carefully the three main factors of choosing the best pomade. The first factor is scent, and considering that factor, the scent of Suavecito is out of this world. Suavecito is applied to the hair after haircut, this item is used by many barbers after haircut as they like to apply some varieties of hair product to bring out a good smell or scent. Many use this product and at that instant, you will recognize that delicious smelling scent and the beautiful soapy moistness it produced. Note that this product is quite strong and will produce a nice scent for the rest of day after applying it.
As explained earlier, Murray is simply categorized as a petroleum based pomade and it is a strong product. Murray is best suited for those whose hair are extremely long or those who love to create a crazier hairstyle, this product helps provide extra support or hold. However, we advise that you should be extremely careful as an excessive application of the product can damage your hair. It is not easy to wash off the product so you need to be ready for thorough washing. When considering the scent effect, Murray doesn’t really give much in this regard as it neither give off a bad smell nor a pleasant one. It doesn’t give off any scent and is simply plain. Nonetheless, it has a superb hold and shine factor.
The third pomade product we will recommend is Layrite Pomade. Many people always compare this product to the Suavecito Pomade and the comparison will still continue. The reason why the products are compared is because both products are similar in terms of hold, smell and texture. When you first bring out the product content, it won’t produce a strong scent as applicable to Suavecito. Although it smells nice but the smell is more timid in terms of strength. This factor should be taken into consideration by cologne enthusiast who desire to carry a single scent to prevent multiple scents from clashing together. If you belong to this category of people, then you should opt for Layrite amongst the three listed above. Layrite also falls under the water-based pomade just like Suavecito. The texture looks like a wax and it is easy to apply the product to the hair.
