Customer Reviews:

Long-lasting Hold

I absolutely love its hold! It lasts all day without getting flaky or crusty. I can style my hair in the morning, and it still looks great in the evening. In my opinion, it's one of the best on the market for hold.

Difficult to Apply

The major downside I found is that it's pretty hard to work into my hair. It's thicker than I expected and it tugs at my hair a bit when I'm applying it. This makes styling a bit more of a challenge.

Classic Shine Finish

I'm a big fan of the shine it adds to my hair. It gives that classic, slicked-back look that I really love. Plus, it's not too greasy or heavy. It's just right!

Good but Has Some Downsides

It's a solid pomade overall. The hold and shine are impressive. However, I wish it was easier to apply. It's a bit on the thicker side and can be hard to distribute evenly throughout my hair.

Not Suitable for Fine Hair

Unfortunately, I found that it's not the best for my fine hair. It's a bit too heavy and tends to weigh my hair down. I think it's more suited to people with thick or coarse hair.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about this pomade. The shine and hold are top notch, but I think it's a bit too heavy for my hair type. If it was easier to apply and lighter, it would be perfect.

Product Summary:

Uppercut Deluxe Pomade is an ideal choice for those seeking a strong hold while maintaining a natural look and feel in their hair. It emits a pleasant coconut-vanilla-caramel aroma, enhancing the styling experience. This pomade excels in adding body and volume, providing controlled definition with a touch of shine. Its strong hold, ease of use, and mild scent that fades quickly make it a popular choice.

The product imparts a slightly wet appearance, though it's not overly shiny, contributing to a retro-inspired look. It's well-suited for a variety of hair types, including thick and coarse hair, as well as curly, wavy, long, and thick hair. The formula's efficiency is evident, as a small amount of the product can go a long way, especially for those with thick hair.

However, users should be cautious with the amount of product applied. Overuse can result in hair becoming greasy and sticky, with a tendency to leave residue and produce a high shine. Additionally, the pomade can dry stiff and hard, which may complicate styling efforts. Therefore, it's important to apply the right quantity to achieve the desired hold and look without encountering these issues.
