How to Use Pomade: 13 Steps
Pomade is a versatile hair styling product that can help you achieve various looks, from classic slicked-back styles to modern textured ones. Here are 13 steps to help you use pomade effectively:
1. Choose the right pomade: Pomades come in various holds (light, medium, and strong) and finishes (matte or shiny). Select one according to your hair type and the style you want to achieve.
2. Wash and towel-dry your hair: Clean hair ensures better application of the product. Towel-dry your hair until it’s slightly damp, as pomade works best on slightly damp hair.
3. Comb your hair: Run a comb through your hair to detangle any knots and create an even canvas for the pomade.
4. Scoop out a small amount of pomade: Start with a pea-sized amount using your fingers or a small spatula.
5. Warm up the pomade: Rub the pomade between your palms until it becomes warm and soft.
6. Spread it evenly on your hands: Make sure that the pomade is evenly distributed across both hands, including palms and fingers.
7. Apply to your roots first: Work the pomade into your hair by starting at the roots and moving slowly towards the tips.
8. Distribute throughout your hair: Use your fingers or a comb to distribute the product evenly from root to tip.
9. Style as desired: Using either a comb or your fingers (depending on the desired style), shape your hairstyle to your liking.
10. Adjust amount if needed: If more hold is required, apply additional small amounts of pomade until you reach the desired level of hold.
11. Finish with a comb or brush: Once you’ve achieved your desired style, smooth it out with a comb or brush for a polished look.
12. Allow time for drying and setting: Allow your hair to air-dry and set before performing any touch-ups.
13. Clean up: If required, use a damp cloth or paper towel to wipe away any excess pomade from your hands, tools, or surfaces.
By following these 13 steps, you’ll be well on your way to mastering the art of using pomade for various hairstyles. Remember always to start with a small amount of product and adjust as needed to prevent over-applying and achieving the best results.
