    1. Great firm pomade.

      Like every Pomade I've purchased from Red House this one works, works, works. Hold is tremendous without being heavy or stiff. And that great aroma! on Mar 18th 2019

    2. Best I've Used

      Typically when you think of pomades you normally think of use in medium to longer length hair. Well, I'm here to tell you this stuff works great in ALL lengths.

      I've used it with several different styles of undercuts ranging from hair down to my chin to medium hair down to my eye brows. I've also used it with shorter hairstyles as well.

      The product applies rather easily once warmed up in the palm of your hand with som vigours rubbing. When it comes to the first initial couple pass throughs with a comb it'll pull a little but not uncomfortable.

      The hold, best I've used, and I've tried a bunch of different water based pomades. It holds up to the Arizona heat and restyling is super easy if it needs to be done.

      As for washing out, it all depends on how much you use. The more you use the more shampooing you'll need to do. Typically I'll wash my hair every 2 days with shampoo while using this. The majority will rinse out with just water (again depending on how much you use). Which is a good thing. Leaving it in overnight with just a water rinse will help keep your hair hydrated with the pomades ingredients.

      Now let's talk about the scent... Holy hell! It's the best! The tobacco isn't too strong and the vanilla isn't too sweet. I've had so many ppl ask me what cologne I wear and I just tell them it's the hair. I've tried several of the small batch special blends, but the original is by far the most amazing. Now if they ever came out with a tobacco/patchouli/vanilla blend, as long as it's just right on the ingredients, that's the only thing which could top the OG scent.

      If you're on the fence about trying The Red House firm water based pomade, just do it. Trust me, you'll love it!

    3. More fiber than pomade

      Hold (5/10)
      Shine (4/10)

      Good fiber. Useful for thick or dense hair. Hold lasts about half a day. Can grab at your hair when applied initially.

    4. Exceptional

      After trying over a dozen different water based pomades, this one is by far my favorite and has become my go to everyday product alongside the red house matte clay. The product breaks down incredibly smoothly and applies to the hair effortlessly. There's minimal tugging and pulling while combing it through but not to the point of discomfort. This definitely provides as much hold as needed, even if you have curly and thick hair like I do. I would say the finish is more of a neutral than a medium for my hair, which is a positive for me since I generally tend to stick to neutral finishes. The scent is outstanding and is by far my favorite scent on any pomade, ever. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with harder to work with hair, it also washes out incredibly easy too. on Jan 15th 2018

    5. The only pomade in my cabinet

      So far I've tried a slew of different pomade trying to find what best suits my hair, and this one is by far my favorite. Relative to the other heavy hold water based pomades this one breaks down easily, goes into the hair without a struggle and washes out in one shampoo. In the heat is get a little soft but does not fall apart and restyling is a breeze. I have thick wavy hair and with an extra scoop or two it's tamed and stays in place all day and night. I highly recommend this product, it's the only one I use. on Oct 12th 2017

    6. Best pomade I used so far

      First, this product smell delicious like milk gelatin with cinnamon and has a strong hold. The scent of the private reserve is strong and anyone within arm-distance can probably smell it and the scent will last the whole day or until you wash it off. on Mar 10th 2017

    7. Solid Product, Great Value

      I have fairly thick hair, and I have to say that this product tames it quite well. Typically I will blow dry with a pre-styler, then add in a pomade to finish my look. The PR Firm Hold was able to give me a solid hold without weighing my hair down, so I still maintained nice volume throughout the day. Using it without blowdrying is equally as satisfying. My hold is good, the shine is not excessively greasy, and it feels lightweight in my hair. I will say it is a little grippy taking it out of the jar, but once the product gets worked into the hands its fairly easy to apply. Also the one other (sort of) drawback is that it does not wash out as easily as other water-based pomades do, it took a couple washes and some solid shampoo to fully get the product out of my hair. But beyond that, I highly recommend it. It's also a pretty great value considering other firm hold pomades on the market. The hold is amazing, working it into the hair is painless, and it's versatile with both blowdrying and just straight application. on Feb 3rd 2017

    8. Great pomade

      This is a great pomade. It has a firm hold that lasts the entire day, washes out incredibly easy, and smells great. Absolutely would recommend to anyone, and have been recommending to friends! on Jan 25th 2017

    9. Love it!

      This pomade is my first official purchase from Red House, and I absolutely love it.

      The smell is so unique to me, (I'm used to grim grease fruity smells). In the jar it's much stronger than once it's in your hair, but the lasting scent it leaves is amazing.

      The hold isn't as heavy as I usually like my pomades, but I appreciate the firmness and restylability in which this one has. It leaves my hair in place, yet still soft.

      And this pomade is pretty damn durable, I went 10+ hours and even slept with it in and was still able to restyle the following morning with just a touch of water added.

      The packaging is by far my favorite among the many pomades in my cabinet.

      This is at the top of my pomade game along with Grim Grease, definitely a new customer! And that sample pomade you guys sent... please start selling that ASAP, killer shit!

      5/5 dude, you guys rocked this one!

    10. Good control

      This product gives me the kind of control I need for thick stubborn hair! It still takes me about three applications to get the consistency I want but that is much less than other products I've used. The scent is enjoyable with some seeet notes is there. Overall, I'm very pleased with the product. on Dec 14th 2016
