waxes are not water based.

if you want strong wax, the strongest i ever used was gold digger by vilain but it dries up fast. however that's the reason why it is strong.

if you're looking to spend a little more money on better quality product, morris motley treatment balm is the way to go.

if you wanna try something that is pretty hyped up, blumaan original, its either a hit or miss for this product.

if you want "water based" stuff, blind barber 90 works like a wax-cream, its call a pomade for marketing purposes.

generally all the waxes above are pretty easy to wash off.

i would recommend the blind barber shampoo and conditioner combo or try vogne shampoo and conditioner.

blind barber shampoo cleans better but vogne shampoo is more moisturising.
Some wax are (technically) water based.

Nah i dont think they name it pomade for marketing purposes. Pomades are just the (original) general term for (traditional/oldshool/contemporary) hairstyling product.

I mean, pomade is the Grandfather of hairstyling product...

Yes, touching on that, correct me if I'm wrong but if "Aqua" is listed as the first ingredient on the list (which means its the main/base ingredient) means that the product is water based, haha.

As for the pomade part I think it's cos the trend right now is yknw, bringing back old school barbershops, pomades and slickback hairstyles/quiffs. So "pomade" - an even more generally used term than ever, is used to describe or rather market out many of the hair products nowadays - to go with this new trend.

But after awhile one will more or less be able to differentiate which of these "pomades" are actually technically waxes (beeswax content) or clays (bentonite content) for example. The use for the term "pomade" has kind of evolved to fit the current trend and marketing methods for hair products.

Hahaha agreed, tbh marketing is still damn bloody important no matter how good your product is. Heck, even if its a sheet product, customers are still gonna buy if you manage to convince them that its some kind of magic cream for your hair.


No lah. Pomade because the current trend is #pomade everything mah.

V strict definitions of the product would disqualify a lot of the "pomades" from being named as such. Just that there aren't any regulatory bodies controlling it.

Pomade= Slick+shiny
Wax= Matte

It's simply about jumping on the bandwagon and making money based on current trends at the expense of confusing the consumer.

To add on, actually water based or not is another confusing terms. Most styling products will be water based because it is the most widely available neutral solvent.

When you level up a bit washability and learning how to read the ingredients list will be more important.

WE MUST EDUCATE THE PUBLIC TO AVOID USING GATSBY MOVING RUBBER






And use more pricey, contemporary stuff instead

Knn all the hype sia abt this MM. Makes my hand itchy only.
Although I have not used a lot of hair products (only Hanz De Fuko's Claymation and By Vilain's Gold Digger), MM wins hands down. Easy application, easy to wash off. Strong hold that last throughout the day, under blazing sun or slight rain. On the pricey side but a quality product well worth the money.

I would go for it.
