The Hold Dat Classic Pomade Difference

So manscaping is a thing. It really is...and more men are into it today than ever before.  

But here's the deal. Taking care of your skin is important. Your hair is equally as important and often overlooked. And you don't want to be going bald at the age of 40, right?! It may not matter to you when you are younger, but as you age, your hair thins and it can take its toll on your pride. So I guess that we now have some mansplaining to do. 

We've already established that your hair matters. That means that you need to feed your hair with good quality products that will nourish and protect it daily. It's literally the only head of hair that you will have, and the good news is that you can promote luxurious, thick hair growth. And we have the perfect solution for you!

The damage…but it is reversible!

We understand that men don't really look into what's best for their hair, and at most, a glaze over a product is sufficient. That's where we fall short because we settle for anything without realizing that it can speed up the hair thinning and hair loss process. 

There are numerous cosmetic and hair products on the market that contain ingredients like formaldehyde, alcohol, and parabens that do far more harm than good to your hair in stripping it of its natural oils, making it brittle, and causing dry scalp which will result in unsightly dandruff. You might think that the effects are minimal, but just imagine running your fingers through your hair and it produces a snowstorm. Not what you want to see, not on a date. In fact, not anywhere, ever... 


What is Pomade?

The answer is simple. You've used gels and creams that sometimes do what they say, but mostly leave your hair worse off for the wear. Pomades are among the best hair styling products that can be used to slick back, add volume, and control your hair. 

Pomades are either oil, wax, or water-based, and you can find the perfect formula to suit your need, whether it be added shine, better control in warmer weather, or improved flexibility in your hairstyle.

Why Hold Dat Classic Pomade?

Each different type of Pomade has its pros and cons, and it's best to understand what each has to offer.

Oil-based pomades are usually made with petroleum, paraffin, or mineral oil, and are good for shine, but can be a bit difficult to wash out. 

Water-based pomade offers good hold for single-day use, is great for humid weather that creates frizz but washes out easily, and carries a higher price tag.

Wax-based pomades are made with natural oils and ingredients like beeswax. They're versatile and can be used for everything from simple natural looks and texturizing to perfect slick back styles. Because wax-based pomades are made from natural ingredients, you are already giving your hair excellent treatment from the get-go. And these pomades won't wash out immediately so you're getting value for money too. 

 Hold Dat Pomade Model

Since you are ready to invest in the future of your hair, we do suggest investing in the best. Hold Dat Classic Pomade is a wax-based pomade that delivers more than it promises. It harnesses the nourishing qualities of rice bran wax, coconut, castor, safflower, and other essential oil blends to feed and nourish your hair while adding texture and extra control over unruly frizziness. 


These natural ingredients are brought together with a combination of natural preservatives and solvents like water, stearic acid, phenoxyethanol, sorbic acid, and caprylyl glycol that are common in natural products in the cosmetics industry. This means your hair is strengthened and protected in just one product, with no compromise. This is what makes our Hold Dat Classic Pomade stand apart from the rest.

A deeper look at the ingredients

Now we know that you probably find information on the ingredients a little too much, but it's for your benefit, so please read on. With all the information at your fingertips, you're equipped to prevent premature hair loss and turn heads even in your 50's.

Hold Dat takes pride in our use of natural, sustainable ingredients, and some of the most important ingredients in our pomade are highlighted below:

Rice Bran Wax

After the husks have been separated from grains of rice, they're pressed down to produce rice bran oil. This in turn is used to make rice bran wax. This wax is rich in antioxidants and vitamins. It has excellent qualities for both the hair and skin, and offers nourishment, conditioning, and softening.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a miracle worker when it comes to replenishing lost oils in your hair and moisturizing and protecting dry hair and scalps. Coconut oil encourages hair growth that is naturally thicker and healthier.

Safflower Oil

Safflower oil is incredibly rich in vitamin E. Rubbing it into your roots enhances circulation and also stimulates growth while strengthening your hair. This oil is essential in protecting your hair against the harsh effects of the elements like the sun.


Castor Oil

Castor oil has been a natural hair growth remedy for decades. It is rich in ricinoleic acid that fights inflammation, and as it's massaged into your scalp, it stimulates hair follicles to encourage growth at a faster than normal rate. And it adds great lustre to give your hair a healthy look.

Soy Lecithin 

The main ingredients in lecithins are choline and inositol, and these are extremely rich in vitamin B, which is another essential component in healthy hair growth. Soy Lecithin nourishes the hair by forming a protective barrier that seals in moisture and improves the condition and structure of dry damaged hair.

Sodium Borate (Borax)

Borax is not just effective in cleaning your hair, but it's excellent for avoiding dandruff and the dry scalp that goes with it too. It also works as a hair thickening enhancer over a period of time, and there have been anecdotal reports of people growing back hair on bald spots with regular use. 


Hold Dat Classic Hair Pomade uses only the best ingredients that promote and stimulate healthy hair growth, moisture, and sheen, all while giving you the chance to style your hair as you desire. 

Now we do agree that many men are more of the get-up and go type, but that doesn't mean that a hair care regiment should take hours. What could be easier than stepping out of the shower, taking a few seconds to apply pomade to your hair, and styling it? 

While you get on with your daily activity, the pomade gets to do what it should - nourish and protect your hair. No mess, no fuss. This is manscaping made easy. A little investment in your hair now will go a long way to ensuring a healthy head of hair later. And we guarantee that you will love it so much that it will become a part of your regular buying. 

There is one condition though. When your buddies ask about your hair care regimen, (and they will!), don't be shy to drone on about this amazing product. And no. It won't make you any less manly...
