Customer Reviews:

Strong Hold and Natural Look

I'm really happy with the strong hold that this clay pomade provides. It keeps my hair in place all day, without giving it a stiff or unnatural look. I've tried many products, but this one hits the sweet spot for me.

Difficult to Apply

I found this pomade really hard to apply evenly in my hair. It's quite thick and doesn't spread easily, which makes the styling process a bit of a struggle. I'm not sure if I'd repurchase it given this issue.

Decent but Pricey

This pomade is decent in terms of hold and texture, but I think it's quite pricey for what it offers. I've used other products with similar performance but at a lower cost. It's good, but I'm not sure it's worth the extra money.

Unpleasant Scent

The one thing I don't like about this product is its scent. It's quite strong and doesn't fade away as the day goes on. This wouldn't be a problem if I liked the smell, but unfortunately, it's not to my liking.

Mixed Feelings about Texture

The texture of this pomade is a bit of a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, it does provide a nice matte finish, but on the other hand, it feels a bit too heavy in my hair. Overall, I think it's just okay.

Product Summary:

Jack Henry Clay Pomade is known for its medium hold and distinct strong lavender scent. This styling product offers a matte finish with a slight shine, enhancing the texture of the hair. While it is on the expensive side, it tends to work more effectively in thick hair compared to thin hair. The pomade is best applied to damp hair and is capable of withstanding humidity, providing an all-day hold.

One aspect to be mindful of is the potential for product build-up over time if it's not thoroughly washed out. Users may find themselves applying more than necessary to achieve a stronger hold, but this can lead to difficulties in spreading the product evenly due to its beeswax and oil composition. Additionally, the pomade can be challenging to wash out from both hair and hands.

Overapplication of Jack Henry Clay Pomade can result in the hair appearing and feeling greasy, as well as giving it a waxy texture. Therefore, it's important to use the product sparingly and evenly to avoid these issues while still achieving the desired styling effect.
