WHICH POMADE IS BEST FOR MY STYLE?

Whats 'up gentlemen? So, having trouble deciding what type of product to use in your hair? Or asking yourself, “what do I want from a hair product and which one is for me?"or "which hair pomade is best?". Believe me, I've been there as well, that was the main reason why I created Knucklehead Pomade in the first place. Back then I used to use this slick back undercut mostly because it had the Beckham hairstyle fever and also I really thought it looked cool and stood out from the crowd. So in-spite of this, we made this guide to help you out with your best style.


The thing is, I have really thick and curly hair, what should I do? At this time it was really hard to find a product that would be easy to use and could hold my hair into shape the whole day. Even bigger salon brands that I would spend a lot on product, couldn't get the job done. Only thick and bad smelling gel would do the trick but I didn't like the way that it shaped my hair, and especially the smell. So as a former salon owner, I decided to search for my own brand, something with high quality and high hold that would keep the promise.


After 2 years of research and testing with chemists and barbers that I really trust, we got to our first pomade. We called it the Classic Hold! We gave it this name to remember some old school products that had really high hold! Especially the homemade ones.


And here's the thing, we did an awesome job with this pomade! But it was focused on thick and curly hair like I said in the beginning. And what I've learned with this is that the best pomade for your hair is, well, depends on your hair and style! I know it seems simple but back then I was so focused on my hair that I didn't even think about other products. That's when it got to me, I have to do something to help other men have their own style with their own hair!


And to help you out with this, here is a guide that we made so you can choose the right product for your style and your hair!
