Intro

Barbers Pomade is brewed from Indonesia. It’s one of the most successful brands in its home country and has been slowly made known to the south east asia region. If you do drop by to any barbers in Indonesia, most likely you will find them.

We chose this because it’s one of our best performing pomade  that suits to the climate in SEA and also men with thicker hair.

Brand

Type

Water-based Pomade

Outlook & Mobility

It has a cool matte black packaging made of plastic. It’s very light and weighs at 100g. Best of all, it is flight friendly as you can include in your carry on luggage (tried and tested!)

Scent

It has a medium strong vanilla / coconut fragrance. Not too strong as compared to some other pomades like Red House Private Reserve

Texture

Its colour is yellow-gold and has a thick, soft and sticky texture (one of the many reasons why it holds well).

Application

It’s an easy experience to apply this pomade on hair. After scooping from the bottle, rub into palms until it has some heat on it then apply on hair. Even though it’s sticky, hair can be easily styled using your fingers or comb.

It can be applied to both dry and damped hair. It only hardens slightly after half an hour

Shine

Overall it has a medium shine. For better shine, use it on damped hair.

 

Strength & Endurance

Overall it has quite a strong hold product. It’s able to withstand the high heat especially in SEA. If one is working in air-conditioned office, commute through trains and some outdoor walking, this product definitely able to hold throughout the day. A little sweat won’t affect much.However, as all pure water soluble pomades are, once it’s exposed to water / sweat, it will dissolve. More pomade is required for restyling, otherwise a layer of hair spray needs to be added after applying pomade on hair. You may wet comb for restyle but it will lose its hold.

Washability

Very easy to wash off using water or normal shampoo. No residue of smell after washing.

Suitable for Hair Types with

  • Volume – Low to Thick Volume
  • Thickness – Fine to thick & stubborn hair
  • Straight Hair

Hairstyles

Barbers Pomades is best used for slick back*, swept back side parting* and spiky*.

Conclusion

Definitely recommended for anyone with short thick hair and needs a strong hold product. Easy to maintain, apply and wash off. Best especially for office workers.
