The Original Pomades
Where it all started. The Original Pomades are tried and true. Backpacking in the mountains, long, heavy workouts, pool sessions, date nights, interviews, etc. This is a product that won't let you down. With a medium shine and a natural hold, it's perfect for numerous hair types. The best part is it won't even feel like you have product in your hair.
The Originals come in three different scents:
Paradise: Sweet smells of citrus, vacation, and reckless abandonment. Use this pomade to remind you that there is good in this world. Made with Bergamot essential oils. Scent: citrus, spice, floral notes.
Tree Kicker: A smell reminiscent of chopping down a tree with your bare hands. Rub this through your hair and you'll become one with Mother Nature. Made with Cedarwood and Juniper Berry essential oils. Scent: pine, woodsy, herbaceous.
Golden Tiger: A scent as mysterious as the pipe hitters rockin the golden tiger stripe. You may not be staging a coup with a savage warlord, but at least you'll smell good. Made with Tea Tree essential oil. Scent: crisp, clean, refreshing.
Directions: This product can be used in all hair types. Move fingers in a circular motion around pomade until it begins to warm up and then rub dime sized amount into hands until it melts completely. Run through dry or towel dried hair for a medium-shine and a natural hold. Depending on the length and thickness of hair, use more if necessary.
PRO TIP: Works perfectly for a beard balm as well. Use a smaller amount and apply it to a slightly wet beard to give it shape and hold throughout the day.
Store in a cool, dry place.

Not sure if they tweaked the formula a little bit, but it's really improved now. Compared to the first batch I got around last year, it was like putting coconut oil in my hair and not really getting much hold. This new batch I got though, way better. It's still going to smell like coconut oil, as that's one of the main ingredients obviously, but the hold is much better. Great for short hair to get it in order, but also great for longer hair to give it a more relaxed look as this has a flexible hold like a slicked back look. One of the things I would change about the Originals is that the scents could last longer or be a little bit stronger. The coconut oil smell overpowers them and the scent just doesn't hit you like the first time you opened that tin when you got in the mail. Overall though, great pomade that I think is best geared for those days where you want some product in your hair, but not look like you put a lot of effort into styling it... even if you did.
This product never fails.
Rain, hail, sleet, class 3 white water, 12 hour shift, holds true.
If I could give more than 5 stars I would
The Original Pomades
Holds well but doesn’t smell anything like the description. It just smells like coconut oil in your hair. Must be a bad batch or it needs a rework on the scent.
