Customer Reviews:

Great Hold

The pomade provided exceptional hold throughout the day, keeping my hairstyle in place even in windy conditions. I was impressed with how well it controlled my hair.

Difficult Wash Out

While the pomade held well, I found it extremely challenging to wash out of my hair. It left a greasy residue that required multiple washes to remove completely.

Natural Finish

I loved the natural finish the pomade gave to my hair. It provided a matte look without making my hair appear overly styled or stiff.

Moderate Shine

The pomade offered a moderate shine to my hair, which may not be suitable for those looking for either a completely matte or high-shine finish. It struck a middle ground in terms of shine.

Strong Scent

The strong scent of the pomade was overwhelming for me. It lingered in my hair and was too overpowering for my liking, making me hesitant to use it regularly.

Decent Texture

The texture of the pomade was average, neither too thick nor too light. It provided a decent hold but didn't stand out compared to other products I've tried.

Product Summary:

Arcadian Clay Pomade delivers a medium hold with a shiny finish that's particularly effective in the initial hours but may see a reduction in hold over time. Its distinctive citrusy scent provides a refreshing experience without being overwhelming. While offering a semi-matte look, it ensures hair remains flexible without appearing stiff, making it versatile for various styling needs.

Priced between $18-$22, it's suitable for medium thick hair, although its formula is efficacious across all hair types, requiring only a small quantity for effective styling. The pomade stands out for its soft texture, enhancing hair without causing pull, and its ability to rinse out effortlessly, leaving no residue behind.

However, its long-lasting hold might diminish throughout the day, necessitating careful management of application to maintain optimal styling. Applying too much can lead to a weighed-down and greasy appearance, with hair becoming clumpy and challenging to style. Thus, moderation is key to leveraging its benefits while avoiding potential drawbacks.
