Customer Reviews

Hard Water Pomade is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hair Product I have never been a fan of gel and only on rare occasion had I ever used it. I was extremely surprised by how easy this was to apply and the look it gave me. My hair held firm, but did not appear to have gel in it or look oily. I had several people come up to me and compliment me on my hair. The product also came out very easily and it helped to control my frizz. This is now part of my daily routine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product This product offers a light feel with a slick look. The water finish makes your hair look sleek and wet while providing a hard finish. It keeps your hair in placed but doesn't look as stiff as gels. This is a great product overall. I received this item for testing but I would strongly consider buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to pomade This hard water pomade always gives my hair and look exactly what it needs. It's a firm hold without looking to crunchy. My hair looks fluid, shiny and silky and can I still run my fingers through it. I've used it for years and it's one of my favorites.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to mix! I loved mixing this with the Clay pomade for the perfect going out look! Sleek but not to heavy. A great find and good gift idea!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Stuff. but, similar to Hard Water Pomade ○Shine : Medium Shine ○Hold : Light Hold ○Styling : Good ○Washability : Good ○Scent : Like citrus ○My hair type : Asian thick hair It is good point that Hard Water Pomade has easy styling for asian thick hair. And, It is washable well because it is water-based. But, It is similar to Soft Water Pomade. So, I think that If you have Soft Water Pomade, you don’t buy Hard Water Pomade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Shine In addition to looking for a pomade that holds my hair well, I also like to have my hair shine a little. Thankfully this pomade does a great job at doing just that! Typically other pomades that give your hair a bit of shine also leave your scalp greasy, but this pomade gives it a nice shiny hold while keeping it looking natural. I received this product for free, but this is my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shine without the grease WHen you open it, it smells good. The packaging looks upscale, it isnt plasticky. THE product itself looks a little glittery but goes on smooth without being too sticky. You can work it in your hair and rhen it hardens nicely. A good grip without the excess greasyness. I received these products complimetary of Influenster and Baxter of California, however rhese opinions are my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique product This give some you a medium hold and shine like a gel but isn't flakey. I also isn't greasy like other pomades can be. I don't know that I could say I've tried another product that does what this one does. It's not my favorite for everyday but certain occasions call for a shiny slick hairstyle, so I use this instead of gels now. I was sent this product to review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels like James Bond As someone who goes to meet and greet parties and evening events a lot, I need to know that my hair transitions the same way I do. Although I use the clay pomade for my day to day, this hard water is great to achieve the slick hair look without the greasiness of other products. Definitely recommend. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Shine I received this a month ago for free so that I could test the Hard Water Pomade. This pomade is my favorite so far because a little goes a long way. It is very neat that I was able to mix this pomade with other Baxter pomades. The Hard Water Pomade is the best for a finishing look to tame the stray strands of hair and add the perfect shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I am not typically a fan of pomades that have a firm hold as they leave my hair too stiff. This was not the case with this pomade - it felt just right and kept my hair in place. It also smelled great and of course, the blue color itself simply looks cool. I received received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good hold and nice shine This pomade was one that I was using when I wanted a nice shine and really good hold, for example a night out or going to a dinner. It really gets the job done and helps you get a nice polished look and a firm hold. I did receive this complimentary of Baxter and Influenster to test out and I do recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best! I've been looking for a water soluble hair product for a while, and while I've used many similar products this one is 'hands down' the best product my hair has experienced. A small amount holds firm all day, but it's the shine that wins it for me. The wet look has defied expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pomade This is definitely one of my most favorite products that I've reviewed from Baxter. This pomade added shine and manageability to my hair. I have thick and curly hair and it kept it in place with just a dab of pomade, a splash of water and a brush. I definitely must get more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hair product I have thick hair, so I thought this pomade wouldn't work on me, but it actually works great! It gives me a little shine and it holds up for most of the day. I do like to reapply, but it handles a good workday. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and high shine I love this guy for a high shine sleek look while being lightweight and fresh. The texture is smooth and easily spreads through the hair for a nice modern look. The scent is fresh with a hint of citrus. I did receive this product to test however opinions are my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good hold nice shine This pomade is my favorite of them all. It goes in super easy and provides and good hold all day long. And doesn't leave a gunky mess anywhere. And it's silly, but the bright blue color is fun too. I did receive this product free in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pomade! This is my favorite out of all of the pomades. My hair is very textured and can be really dry so it's nice that this pomade leaves my hair with a bit of shine while also holding my hair all day. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best pomade. This pomade was the best I could use in a long time, let the glitter of my hair look just beautiful. So far it's one of the best decisions I've ever made (in terms of pomade). I received this product for testing purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved It This is now my go-to product to keep my hair in check. I use it in the mornings after I shower and I don't need anything for the rest of the day. I received this product for free as a demo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong hold! This pomade lasted all day which is rare for me! I'm not a huge fan of the look that pomades have vs clays, but the hold is unbeatable. It also washed out well which was a huge bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You are going to like this pomade I have used a few pomades from Baxter of California and I get great results. You can mix different products and your hair will look clean. They are really easy to wash out as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! If you don't want a completely matte look, this product works great. It's portable, smells good, and as an unneeded plus, looks really cool too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic shine!! Best pomade for shine hands down!! Feels so soft in the hair, but holds for a long time. I like using this for that slick back hair style.
