Rated 1 out of 5 by from No idea where the hype is coming from I have no desire to attack Baxter as a company at all, but I do not know how people are having such good results from this. By the time you get it spread evenly throughout your hand the product is already near dry, so application is nigh on impossible to get spread thoroughly. I have a lot of fine, stick straight hair and this feels like it's straight ripping out my hair as I apply—as evidenced by the dozen of hairs stuck to my hand. There is very little hold to see (seemingly less than the regular cream pomade—most likely due to application issues), with the hair not even holding in it's general spot to begin with. I will grant that it's a nice texture, but within minutes - hours later my hair has zero form. Sad I spent the money on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected Convert The hard cream pomade is a pretty great product. I wasn't sure how it would work on African-American hair but I was pleasantly surprised. It absorbed quickly and left behind no residue. After adding a splash of water and brushing my hair, it set up nicely and even taking my hood on and off didn't disturb my wave pattern. **I received this product free for review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for awesome thick hair I purchased this pomade @ Nordstrom. My hair is very voluminous and curly, when it's styled right it can rival Adrian Grenier's hair but when it's not it looks like a weird fuzzy mess especially when it rains. I live in Georgia and the weather here is crazy! So I need something that I can manipulate in my hands with a little water and quickly style my hair without worrying if my hair will become a sticky mess or being let down with a lack of hold. This is an awesome pomade and they have three different ones for each kind of hold you want!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for my thick wavy hair Does exactly what it promises: Firm hold, natural finish. This stuff holds my hair exactly where I left it all day long without really looking like theres product in it. I really appreciate the fact that it doesn't have a strong smell, its easy to wash out, and that I can actually still run my fingers through my hair since it doesn't make it super stiff. Great product, will definitely continue using it for my daily hair routine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product DO NOT BUY IT. This thing does not work at all. Anyone who claims that it works must have used half a jar everytime they style their hair, and it is just not the right amount for a hairstyling product. It basically has no hold effect and dries on your hands so fast you will just end up pulling your hair out trying to style with it. When you use it with damp hair, it gets a bit less irritating but when your hair is dry, your efforts will go to waste because of the no-hold issue. Comparing to the Clay Pomade, this is a joke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hold!!!! This pomade has such a strong hold and last all day. Even today with it drizzling outside, my hair got a little wet and it held up nicely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmm... ○Shine : no shine, Matte finish ○Hold : High Hold ○Styling : not good ○Washability : so so ○Scent : Clean ○My hair type : asian thick hair It is good point that Baxter of California Hard Cream Pomade has high hold and matte finish. But, It is hard styling for asian thick hair type. If you want easy styling, I recommend Cream Pomade. If you want high hold, I recommend Hard Cream Pomade. I prefer Cream Pomade to Hard Cream Pomade.
