Customer Reviews:

Unrivaled Hold and Control

It's really impressive how well this holds my hair in place. It maintains its hold all day without needing any touch-ups. It makes managing my hair a breeze, and I feel more confident throughout the day.

Slightly Overpowering Scent

The scent is a bit too strong for me. I generally prefer a more subtle fragrance. It’s not a deal breaker, but it would be perfect if the scent was toned down a bit.

Remarkable All-day Hold

Its all-day hold capability is simply astonishing. I've gone through full days, even with heavy outdoor activities, and my hairstyle stayed intact. It really does live up to the 'extreme hold' promise.

Good Hold, a Bit Sticky

The hold is excellent, but it's slightly too sticky for my liking. It can make the application process a bit challenging. That being said, once it's in, the hold is top notch.

A Bit Difficult to Rinse Out

While it does a fantastic job holding my hair in place, it is a bit tough to wash out. It often takes more than one wash, which can be a bit time-consuming.

Strong Hold but Scent is Strong

The hold is indeed extreme as advertised, but the scent is a bit overpowering. It doesn't smell bad, but I prefer a lighter scent. Still, it's a good product if you can overlook the strong scent.

Product Summary:

Viking Revolution Extreme Hold Pomade is an excellent choice for those seeking a strong hold that is also easy to wash off. It is particularly effective for thick and coarse hair types, reliably holding the hair in place all day without any significant scent. This product is adept at straightening wavy or curly hair, providing a matte finish and a natural look, along with a good shine. It also enhances volume and fullness, boosts natural texture, and can create tousled waves.

Priced at under $10, it offers great value and is particularly suited for thick, straight, and thick, curly hair, though it may not be the best option for thin hair. The pomade's longevity is notable, with the ability to maintain style into the next day. However, it can require multiple washes for complete removal, which is a factor to consider in terms of convenience.

Users should be cautious with the amount applied, as overuse can lead to hair becoming sticky and heavy. Additionally, while it holds the hair well, it can leave it feeling dry and hard. There's also a possibility of the product pulling hair and leaving residue, so it's important to apply it carefully to avoid these issues.
