I’m glad I ended up reviewing this baby right here. I’ve always been unsure what products to offer you nuckas that keep asking me what should you use if you got thick and/or curly hair. But now, I’m sure.
This is Lockhart’s Heavy Hold Hair Pomade. To be perfectly honest, I hate reviewing heavy pomades…because as you guys already know, I don’t like heavy pomades. Yet, this goop…was…good as fuhhh.
As you can see, it comes in a slick black tin can. Weighing in at the standard 4 ounces and with the heaviness of the product, I expect this jar to last me forever.
Opening up the jar, the aroma will smack you in the face. The brewer advertises the smell as ‘coco vanilla’, but I’d personally describe it as a chocolate minty-vanilla. Now, I usually get really annoyed by strong smelling pomades…but this one…I like. The smell of it in the morning is kinda like the refreshing smell of coffee in the morning. It’s nice.
Forreal. This is my favorite characteristic of Lockhart’s line. No matter how heavy the product is, it effing scoops like out smooth creamy goodness. Yes, the medium has a hard layer on top…but all of their products scoop out smoothly.
This shit was heavy as hell, yet it scooped out smoother than Grandad’s Light Weight — as smooth as The Classics Pomade. When you start smearing it around in your hand, that’s when you’ll start noticing/realizing how heavy it actually is. You will feel the waxiness of Lockhart’s Heavy Hold.
Time. Thanks to the hold, this product provides a lot of control. All that control lends to easy styling and quick styling.
Slickness. This was something I forgot to mention in the video. A lot of heavy pomade lack slickness. All that wax doesn’t do well to keep my hair together as a whole. Lil strands will start pulling apart away from the pomp. I’ll get lil hairs sticking out and what not. However, I did not have this problem with Lockhart’s Heavy Hold. It wasn’t as slick as Goon Grease obviously, yet it was still slicker than all the other heavy products I’ve used.
Strength. Simply put. This is the heaviest and strongest oil-based pomade I’ve ever used. I explained this in the video, but I was able to style my hair with the buildup/residual pomade leftover after showering and shampooing. It’s not Murray’s stupid heavy where you just can’t get the shit out. A good amount of the Lockhart’s came out in the shower, AND I was still able to style my hair without adding any more product. That’s just to prove a point — I obviously added more pomade for the pictures below.
This was impressive stuff. If I hadn’t been introduced to Goon Grease, then this would be my heavy weight product of choice.
It definitely receives my seal of approval. To all you dirty vatos that got thick and curly and/or unruly hair, this may be your best bet at taming that nasty shit.
