Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula not good I’ve been buying clay pomade from Baxter for years. I noticed that recently changes were made, particularly with the texture of the pomade itself. Both the matte effect and the hold that converted me to this product are longer there. Hope the old formula is brought back, because I’m seeing these 1 Star ratings on most of Baxter’s styling products ever since the changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Love the final result after using I bought this product after a lot of research on hair products. Does not take much to give me the desired finish on my hair. I have very thick hair. I love the matte finish that this provides and it lasts all day even with the wind. It does allow for adjusting and fixing throughout the day as well! I also love that it provides hold, but your hair isn’t frozen into place so it still feels more natural. Only negative if I could even call it that is the scent. It smells very earthy which is not my favorite, but you only smell it if you open the container and hold it up to your nose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great matte pomade The clay pomade provides great hold with low shine. my hair thin and dark so anything with shine looks wet or greasy; this does not. my current cut is short on the sides and long on top. it smooths the sides down for a clean look. on the top i can comb it for a pompadour, leave it messy or style it up. Great all day hold. You can create a clean look for the day then mess it up a little later without reapplying. sometimes i use another product first then fine tune and clean up the look with this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality Pomade, Cheap Packaging Fantastic pomade. I’ve been using this clay for several years now and have yet to be disappointed - even when the revised formula briefly surfaced. It seems the old formula has returned. This place is much denser and less tacky than the one I previously purchased, which was more pliable and tacky. The greatest disappointment is the packaged goods. While it looks identical to all of its predecessors, the lid won’t stay on. It’s definitely disappointing that the lid to the container now can only rest on the base, rather than screw on correctly. And this is unfortunate, the premium packaging was once an impressive facet of this product and all of the Baxter line. I hope this link gets spotted out, soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tame This Mane I generally keep my hair pretty short and use product with less hold. However, now that I haven’t been able to get a haircut for several weeks and needed one ever before the quarantine, I started using this pomade. It’s got a great matte hold without clumping or buildup and texturizes well. It washes out easily, though maybe only 90% with just water. I have thick wavy hair, and this pomade has held it nicely in shape. I may stop getting my hair cut so short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hair product I’ve tried so far This product is awesome! It doesn’t harden my hair, it lasts all day, it’s not gunky and you only need a little bit. I like it so much that I signed up for automatic reordering. Five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great natural look I’m using this product for past 3 months and find this one the best pomade our there in market. I’ve probably used more than 20 pomades and this is the best from all of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite pomade As someone who pays around $40-60 for a fitted haircut, it's important that my hair products do some heavy lifting to keep my hair looking great. This pomade definitely achieves that. This pomade keeps my hair firmly in place and has a light natural scent so it doesn't get annoying if you have to wear it everyday or doesn't conflict with your cologne. Thumbs up!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Clay in this Pomade! My stylist used this on me today, and though it didn't do anything negative, I looked up the ingredients on the web -- first ingredient is PETROLEUM :( Not a drop of clay as far as the ingredient list (and it's long).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Go to Product I switched to this product after using the american crew fiber for a few years. This stuff blows out any other product. The product has a good firm hold that also leaves a perfect matte finish in your hair. I can achieve any style I want. Perfect for any hairstyle and smells amazing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will stay in your hair forever It was a great application... until it came time to shower. I thought something was funny the moment I put shampoo on and it did not foam. I went through 3 washes and the stuff is still in my hair. I will have to see how long it takes for this stuff to come out but I am never purchasing this product again. I would ask for a full refund if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Pomade Out of the four that Baxter of California make I prefer this one over hard water and hard cream. The matte look is very nice and is easy to sculpt with. It provides a better hold than my favorite, the cream pomade. A little bit goes a long way which is good because it doesn't feel like you're wasting it. It's really allowed me to experiment with different styles. I received this product as a promotion though Influenster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hold and malleability The product works great, it gives awesome hold and a nice texture to my hair (which is extremely straight and quite unruly), it helps a lot with styling the finish is completely matte, maybe some like a little bit of shine but it's completely fine in my case. I recommend it for anyone who can't style their hair most of the days. I got this product for free for reviewing purposes through Influenster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised ! I just received my new jar of Baxter clay pomade. I’ve been using this for at least a couple years. My hair is fine and Baxter’s ngives great hold throughout the day. I was surprised that the latest jar held a third less clay pomade for the same price as usual. No warning, no information before my purchase just less product for the same price. I’ll be looking for a new brand to purchase .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to This was my first product that made me fall in love with baxter and try other products. The scent is amazing its mild and earthy if that makes sense. Application is easiy and u need to use really small amount. It lasts the whole day and i can depend on it and as for washing it out it only needs a gentle shampoo to get it all out. Simply love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pomade This is the first and only clay I've bought for my hair, and I'm okay with that because I love it. I have fine, short blonde hair and this gives me good texture and hold. The scent is awesome as well. My one hang up: it's very overpriced. Two ounces for $22 is just way too expensive. It's going to be hard to make myself repurchase this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Matte Look I have a faux-hawk and I hate having shiny hair. I like my hair to look like I just woke up out of bed, yet have a perfectly styled hairdo lol. With this clay pomade I get the look I want without any grease or shine and a little goes a long way ! I highly recommend! I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT! I tried this product last week to go to a party, it was an excellent choice, it just lasted all night and gave the matte touch I was looking for. Everyone asked me what product it was because they were curious to see me so well. received this product complimentary for testing purposes. Thanks Baxter, YOUR ROCK!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hold without looking greasy A little goes a long way with this Baxter product. It's hold lasts basically all day and it holds my hair in a way that separates without 'chunking' it too much. Of all the pomades I have tried by Baxter this was the most versatile in terms of styling, hands down would recommend this product to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing compares. I’ve been using the Clay Pomade for about 3 years and I am confident in saying there is no better hair product available. I used to have to cocktail three different products (all of which ended up costing more in total than the clay pomade) just to achieve something close to what I get with this godsend. Don’t hesitate: order today, thank me (or the people at Baxter, whatever) later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Hold The clay pomade held my hair in place all day. I have to wear a hat at work and the products I used before would not keep my hair styled throughout the day as I took my hat of and put it back on. The clay pomade is the first product I used that kept my hair styled all day. It was a great find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hold, no shine I love the finish of this product, it definitely keeps my hair in place without being too heavy or giving that ugly gel-hair texture. You put it in and forget it's there. Love it! I got this as a free gift from influenster in exchange for this review, but this is an honest review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This is the pomade for me if I still want a strong hold but not too much shine. The matte look is a good alternative to the natural or shiny hair look. The smell is a bit different than I would like but it's not horrible. Besides that, definitely love using this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not matte It has good hold but the texture of the product is more oily and greasier than other clay products. It doesn’t give a matte finish and will make your hair shinier than other products. It’s the beeswax. I won’t be buying again. The Matt finish is somewhat misleading

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New formula, don’t buy Have been using the clay pomade from baxster for almost three years now. So disappointed they changed the formula, it’s softer, more greasy right now and doesn’t give the right texture as it do before. Don’t know if I will buy again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smell is pungent and can't trace its expiry date I bought the Clay Pomade on Monday and the product has no description of its manufacturing and expiration date. I sent an email to BoC but haven't received any response till now. The smell is very pungent and the product is greasy and does not get off the hands/palms. It doesn't seem to be of adequate quality. Please help.
