A must have styling tool for those intentionally disheveled looks seen
in today's world of fashion
Pomade is a sort of solid consistency hair styling product
generally applied to dry hair, that DOES NOT HARDEN. Pomades used to include only those products with greasy or waxy bases
and were used to "shine up and slick down" the hair. Today pomade
labels include the words; wax, clay, as well as some gel, glue &
creams. Inmost cases if you "blow dry it - dry," or if it
hardens it is not a pomade.
Pomade are used to add shine, lift, root-lift
or to add texture to the ends of your hair, as well as to control
fly-away and create spikes or the popular "pieces parts"
intentionally disheveled looks seen in today's world of fashion.
Some pomades or pomade substitutes like
Vaseline petroleum jelly (popular on Halloween eve to get the vampire look &
hated then next morning because it won't come out *) can be difficult to
remove from you hair with standard shampoo.
Pomades work best on thick, coarse or wavy hair.
Use sparingly, emulsifying the hair pomade by placing a small amount
onto the palm of your hand and rubbing with the palm side of your finger
tips until it's (well distributed) or barely there. Apply
lightly over the top surface of the hair,
pinching and coaxing stray hairs into the desired look. Now here is the reason
for keeping the hair pomade on the palm side of your finger.
To gain additional separation, lift & direction, you
can work your fingers into your hair next to the scalp, and rub
the pomade on the root area of your hair. Once the pomade is on the root
area, simply squeeze your fingers together lifting back,
away from the scalp and out of the hair to gain unseen root lift and
direction. Pinch the ends between
you fingers where needed to for added finishing details and to add
polish to your style.
*Vaseline petroleum jelly
is not easily removed. Remember "oil dissolves oil," so try adding some
olive-oil to the Vaseline to thin it down. Using a special shampoo lime E C
Un Do Goo or other de-greasers such as dish
washing liquid or most successfully liquid tide laundry detergent directly
on the hair. After the
Vaseline is "gone" rewash with a standard
shampoo and condition to "put back" the good things your hair needs to look
its best. If you are now ,or have in the past, successfully removed Vaseline
from you hair please Email us with your tricks and results.
