I really like pomades and I never heard of this particular one until I found it at Target. Since it's from Curls and I like the rest of their products that I've tried, I decided I'd give it a try.
As far as smoothing down C's edges, this product did pretty good. I expect products to do what they say they are supposed to, but I also think I expect a little too much at times.
This pomade made C's hair look sleek and neat, it didn't leave it crunchy or flaky. I really liked it for C's crown area because all the tiny baby hairs stayed down longer than they do with most other products. This is very light but a little goes a long way. It dissolves quickly and doesn't feel sticky.
When it comes to sculpted curls, well, C's hair needs a little more to give her the definition I like. It didn't do bad, it's just not my favorite for defining curls. It did give the sheen it promised, so that's a plus.
This product gives a light but strong hold that lasts all day. C's hair did soak it up though, so I'm not sure I like it for cornrows. After a day, all her baby hairs and hairs inside each braid were sticking up.
Overall, I'm pleased with this and I will definitely buy it again.
