Got pomade in your product arsenal but don't quite know how to use it? Well, it's not just for pumping up pompadours or spiking mohawks. Check out 5 summer friendly ways to use this often misunderstood hair product.
Tame split ends: Tame split ends between trim appointments with pomade. Rub some between your palms then work them through the ends. You only need a small amount to get maximum results.
Define your layers: Pomade is great for giving layered looks added definition. Take a bit between your fingertips and gently glide them through your layers. Use a formula with soft to medium hold for touchable hair that won't be weighed down.
Get piece-y curls and waves: Use pomade to give your spiral curls and waves a modern tousled makeover. To get the look, finish off a freshly curled 'do with a small amount of wax or pomade for a natural finish, then separate strands.
Pre-swim treatment: Before you take a dip in the pool seal your hair with pomade. It will act as a protective barrier between your hair and oil stripping chlorine. Follow up with a post swim hair oil treatment.
Edge control: In between relaxers or want a natural updo with sleek edges? Get your hands on some pomade to smooth out the hair line or manage new growth. A water based product that washes out easily is ideal for the job.
Bonus tip: Naturals looking to flip to a straightened style this summer can count on pomade to help block humidity. Apply the pomade prior to heat styling to impart maximum shine and moisture.
Which way will you put pomade to good styling use this summer?
