Men and even women have been styling their hairs for over a millennia . There are early accounts of people in ancient civilizations like Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans who used stiffening agents for their hairs.
One of the commonly used items are from bees waxes , bear fats, lards and natural oils.
Etymology of Pomade
Pomade comes from the word (/pɒˈmeɪd/; French pommade) is a greasy, waxy, or a water-based substance that is used to style hair.
Pomade gives the user’s hair a shiny, slick appearance, and does not dry it out. It lasts longer than most hair care products, often requiring multiple washes to completely remove. The original pomade of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries consisted mainly of bear fat , lard, lanolin, beeswax and petroleum jelly have been used extensively in the manufacture of modern pomades.
It started on September 2014 as a backyard pomade brewer, after numerous test and failure, the brand formulated the right blend to address the needs of sophisticated users of pomade.
It is legally incorporated in July 2015 in Manila, Philippines. The company set its direction to greater heights. With the leadership of its owner Mr. Froilan B. Llavore.
Why use Slick Tight Pomade?
This is not my first time to use some kind of pomade , gel, spray or any waxing agents. It had been a fad before. Unlike hair spray or some hair gel products in the local market Slicktight pomade does not dry, and can last much longer. Pomade can be used to style hair (including mustaches, side burns, and beards), giving it a darker, slicker, shinier look.
I have tried some commercially available brands with little effect. Sometimes, due to the harsh ingredients used in some pomade products plus dirt which accumulates in the scalp can cause dandruff and irritation.
Unlike some pomade products in the market which contain harmful inorganic chemicals and harm the environment.
Slick Tight Pomade is made from organic beeswax, castor oil, petrolatum and essential oils. Since it is concentrated, then you only need a little amount and it can go along way. One container can last maximum of 6 months or more.
What makes this product amazing is that it come in different flavors. Strawberry Cream and Bubble Gum scents seems to be almost the same. I think i should have tried the Cool Mint one.
When my father saw this product, He thought it was some sort of strawberry jam … Until i opened the container.
How to Use Slick Tight Pomade
I dabbed a pinch of slick tight pomade into my hands and gently apply them in my hair. I prefer my hair to be damp so to spread the pomade evenly. The application stayed for more than 6 hours without reapplying new pomade. For hair-styling wax or gels, you need to reapply several times a day . This makes me uncomfortable and uneasy.
Another proven trick is can soften the pomade with the help of a blow-dryer before, more so, if you are using a thick one, which will not spread easily in your palms.
I think this is one of the product to look out for this 2018 and a perfect styling partner in any occasion .
