Customer Reviews:

Great hold and shine

I love how the BYRD Classic Pomade provides a strong hold for my hair while still giving it a nice shine. It keeps my hairstyle in place all day long without making it look greasy.

Difficult to wash out

One downside of the BYRD Classic Pomade is that it is quite difficult to wash out. Even after using shampoo multiple times, there are still some residues left in my hair. It requires extra effort and time to completely remove it.

Long-lasting hold

The BYRD Classic Pomade holds my hairstyle in place throughout the entire day. Even in humid weather, my hair stays styled and doesn't lose its shape. I'm impressed with its long-lasting hold.

Decent but not outstanding

The BYRD Classic Pomade is a decent product. It provides a medium hold and a subtle shine. While it does its job well, it doesn't stand out from other pomades in the market. It's a good option if you're looking for something basic.

Leaves hair feeling greasy

After applying the BYRD Classic Pomade, my hair feels greasy and heavy. It doesn't absorb well and gives my hair an oily appearance. I would prefer a pomade that leaves a more natural and lightweight finish.

Middle-of-the-road option

The BYRD Classic Pomade is neither exceptional nor terrible. It does an okay job in providing hold and shine to my hair, but there are better alternatives available. If you're not too picky about your hair products, it can be a decent choice.

Product Summary:

BYRD Classic Pomade offers a heavy hold, suitable for thicker hair, while allowing style changes throughout the day. Its quality surpasses that of cheaper pomades, providing satisfactory hold and a subtle scent that doesn't clash with colognes or fragrances. The product makes hair look great, but it has a waxy, stiff texture initially, resembling elementary school glue, that turns oily and slick in the hair.

One of the challenges with this pomade is its difficulty in washing off from both hands and hair, often requiring multiple washes and conditioning for complete removal. Excessive application can make hair feel heavy and appear greasy, affecting the desired hold and style, and may also lead to product build-up. Priced between $15 and $25, it's a good option for those with thick hair seeking a product that holds well and enhances hair appearance.
