Customer Reviews:

Great Hold for All-Day Styling

I love how Lockharts Medium Hold Hair Pomade keeps my hair in place all day long. It provides a strong hold that lasts without making my hair feel stiff or crunchy. It's perfect for creating different hairstyles and it even holds up well in humid weather.

Difficult to Wash Out

One major downside of Lockharts Medium Hold Hair Pomade is that it is incredibly difficult to wash out. Even after multiple shampooings, I still find residue in my hair. It leaves my hair feeling greasy and weighed down, which is quite frustrating.

Natural Shine and Definition

The Lockharts Medium Hold Hair Pomade gives my hair a natural shine and definition that I absolutely love. It enhances the texture of my hair and adds a healthy-looking sheen. It's easy to apply and provides a polished finish to any hairstyle.

Decent Hold, But Not Impressive

I find that the Lockharts Medium Hold Hair Pomade offers a decent hold for my hair, but it's not as strong as I expected. It works fine for everyday styling, but if I need my hairstyle to last for a special occasion or event, I prefer using a stronger hold pomade.

Overpowering Scent

The Lockharts Medium Hold Hair Pomade has an overpowering scent that lingers in my hair throughout the day. It's quite unpleasant and gives me a headache. I wish they had a fragrance-free option or a milder scent that doesn't overpower other perfumes or colognes.

Moderate Hold, Nothing Special

Lockharts Medium Hold Hair Pomade provides a moderate hold for my hair, but it doesn't stand out among other similar products. It doesn't offer any unique features or benefits that make it worth the price. It's an average pomade that gets the job done, but nothing more.

Product Summary:

Lockhart's Medium Hold Hair Pomade offers a variety of scents across different hold strengths, catering to diverse preferences. The strong hold variant, known as 'goon grease,' initially raised concerns about excessive shine but has proven to provide excellent hold. The pomade's fragrance is pleasant and long-lasting, reminiscent of subtle cologne. However, some users may find the scent overpowering, noting that it lingers for several hours.

The product is especially effective on the second day, providing a desirable greasy appearance while maintaining hold, thus avoiding an overdone look. Its creamy, smooth texture facilitates easy application and even distribution through the hair. The slightly sticky texture of the pomade enhances its hold and control, aiding in styling.

Priced between $15 and $20, Lockharts Medium Hold Hair Pomade is particularly suitable for thick hair, offering strong hold without the stiffness of water-based alternatives. While it suits all hair types, the scent might not be universally appealing.

Designed for durability, the pomade provides a lasting hold, capable of withstanding various weather conditions and activities. However, it is not formulated for easy washout and can be quite difficult to remove, potentially even more challenging than Murray's superior. Caution is advised regarding the quantity used; overapplication can lead to greasy hair, despite its oil-based composition. Additionally, excessive use might result in greasy hands for those who habitually run their fingers through their hair.
