Disappointing. The product is very hard in the jar. So hard, that at first I thought it might be past its self life. After getting a small amount between my palms and warming it up, it left a very sticky and difficult to spread film on my hands. Working it into my hair was difficult and it almost feels like you are pulling your hair out. It holds OK but the difficulty in application is enough that I will not purcbase more. It smells mostly like cocoa butter to me, not like old school barber shop. Shine is neutral at best. On a good note It does wash out easy. 3 outta 5 as it is functional at best, and nowhere as good as other waterbased products I have tried recently. Bob on Sep 6th 2016
I received my jar with much anticipation. However I received a bad jar, dried up by the looks of it. The team at red house were happy to replace it for me! Sweet customer care there. The pomade itself smells AMAZING! Smells like a fresh haircut. Once I get my new jar I'll be happy to review the product itself, I'm sure they need no hype. Video reviews alone will prove how good this pomade works! Victor on Sep 6th 2016
Tried a buddy's private reserve and was so impressed, I immediately purchased 4 off the website. One with the original scent and 3 various scented small batches. I chose to start with the original and the scent was exactly as I remembered it. Unfortunately I must say, I think this one's from a bad batch. Since I had experience with it beforehand, I kind of knew what to expect, so I was rather surprised when upon the first scoop it already felt different. It wasn't the resistant smooth pastey feeling but it came off a bit clumpy and dry. Smearing it was rather difficult where it didn't breakdown evenly and the pomade kept staying on one hand. Transference to the hair left streaks. Unlike the one I tried before, washing it out left an overly waxy residue.
This review is in no way bashing Red House or it's products, as I have stated in my title, it is based solely on the jar I acquired. I understand bad batches sometimes happen. Please read my review on the blackberry boogie for the Private Reserve that we all know and love.

This is a great product from the scent to the hold. Dobt expect the consistency of a medium hold for this product. It is firm and needs to be worked in your palms in saml amounts. The performance is great. You won't be let down with this or any of Tre's products. Steve D on Aug 8th 2016
Everything 10 smells amazing holds all day perfect finish all around best pomade Bryce on Aug 2nd 2016
This pomade is everything you could ask for in a water based format. It goes in smoothly with little resistance and combs through clean. Your hair will remain soft and pliable, but will stay right where you put it. This water based acts like an oil based. It doesn't harden up at all like gel type water based pomades. The scent is clean and subtle. It isn't overpowering at all, but hangs around pleasantly in the background. This is seriously an outstanding product. I am 100% satisfied with it and am glad to see it produced here in the Bluegrass State. Kirk on Jul 22nd 2016
Can't say enough about this pomade. If you want the best hold, smell, and easy application get this pomade. trust me! Adrian Alcantar on Jul 21st 2016
I live in Florida, so it is naturally hot and humid here. Products usually turn too greasy, fall apart, and/or sag. Red House Firm is the epitome of a firm, with strength and no weight to it, allowing little movement and effortless restyling. The scent is perfect as well (barbershop). Great job Tre.

I like pomades....a lot. I LOVE this pomade. It's hold and texture and feel are remarkably amazing. The smell......greatness pure greatness! Five Star! Michael O'Brien on Jul 19th 2016
I purchased the Small Batch Sunday Private Reserve in Blackberry Boogie and it has exceeded all my expectations. It is hot here in Texas and the hold remains strong throughout the day. It is easy to apply to the hair without any tugging. I have several pomades in my collection, but since this came in the mail I have been exclusively using the Red House Private Reserve. I cannot say enough good things about this product. Keep up the good work Tre.
