Pomade is a popular hair product that men and women use. It lost its shine in the hairstyling product market when buzzcuts, ultra-short hairstyles, and long hair were the dominant hairstyles among men. Another reason was that it was made of heavy, synthetic materials that clogged hair follicles and caused dermatitis.
Today pomade is back thanks to the renaissance of gentlemanly fashion. This lead pomades to redeem itself in the eyes of men and women. Pomades today are lighter, less greasy and contain natural ingredients. Some of the natural oils that they use are rosemary, nettle, jojoba, and amla. There are even manufacturers who can customize them for you.
You need not be a fan of the dapper Rat Pack fashion that’s all the rage right now to wear this fantastic hair product. Here are the reasons why you should wear pomade:
Pomade moisturizes your hair.
Pomades today are healthier because of the lighter and more organic ingredients they contain. Emollients have a deep moisturizing effect on the hair. Not only do they soften its outer layer, but also the innermost cortex which keeps your hair strong.
Pomade keeps your hair from breaking out.
Keeping your hair looking neat in Singapore’s weather takes a bit of work especially when it’s hot and humid outside. This is because hot weather tends to cause hair to dry, look frizzy, and break out. Wearing pomade protects your hair from drying because of the hot weather. It also keeps your hair looking sleek and neat even as you rush between meetings under the hot sun. It also helps keep your hair in position even after wearing hats, caps or helmets.
Pomade keeps your hair under control.
Keeping your hair in control is important for two reasons. Style-wise, putting your hair under control maintains that certain look you want to sport within the day. Practically, you need to keep it under control to save you time from combing it back to neatness. These are the two things that pomade can definitely do.
Pomade helps you experiment with hairstyles.
Men today are more experimental with hairstyles, thanks to the rise of men’s fashion and beauty. Using this product allows you to recreate the various hairstyles and textures available to men.
Another good thing about this product is that it makes your hair look good, regardless of its sparseness or thickness. Men of all hair types today can use it without worrying about receding hair and other problems because of the natural ingredients found in the newer brands.
