In this post I will bring you my thoughts on the original hold pomade by Suavecito!
Note that there are two different types of Pomade by Suavecito. You have the strong/firm hold and the original which is what this review will be for.
To kick off this review I have to give props to the packaging design of this pomade. The design is perfect in my opinion and the design team knocked it out of the park with that.
I see just the same old packing all the time that it really is refreshing to see something stand out and have some life to it.
I will break down the review into pros and cons of the product.
- Great Smell
- Washes out easy
- Good length of time for the hold, mostly all day.
- Decently Priced
- Not an overbearing strong hold that I have gotten from some.
The smell may be hit or miss just as I guess certain colognes are so this is just a personal preference but for me I did like it.
It has a solid hold for me but my hair doesn’t fight me to much except for a few cowlicks so it might not be enough for some of you. Which is where you would go with the strong hold version if you needed it.
- Loses a good bit of hold if I start sweating.
- The smell (read below)
- May not have enough hold for those with strong personalty hair.
First off yes I know I have the smell in both categories and let me explain why. I personally like the smell but some of my co-workers did not so like I said this is definitely a hit or miss smell.
If you are outside a lot or just sweat easy then this could cause you to lose your hold very easily. I noticed it comes out pretty easy once it gets any kind of wet, sweat included. I’m not sure if the firm/strong hold version has the same ‘issue’, haven’t tried that version as of yet.
Like I mentioned my hair isn’t to hard to tame but for those with super curly hair I could see you needing the stronger version but I don’t know that for sure since everyone’s hair is different. So I would suggest starting with this one and seeing how it works for you.
Overall for the Suavecito Pomade Original Hold I would give it a
