To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've used Uppercut products in the past, notably their Monster Hold pomade, and a few of their combs. Looking for a more premium matte product I thought I'd try this out. It's got good hold, and washes out fine, but applying it to dry mid-long hair is horrible, it goes SO matte that it's difficult to get your hands through it and style properly. You'd be better off spending a third of the money and getting a VO5 product, as smells better, is easier to style, lasts just as long though doesn't wash out as well.
For my hairstyle, this is perfect for me. I have short hair round the back and sides and on top I like to have my hair a bit messy and wavy. For more formal situations, it’s works perfectly to have a smart natural look too.
Throughout the years I’ve tried a lot of different products (especially ones you can find in Boots or supermarkets), lots being good, but not quite right.
It seems very cliche but this pomade has the perfect amount of hold to keep the style I want without having to keep messing around with it. It also makes your hair look natural and as if there’s no product in at all, which is what I love about this. I have actually had compliments where people think it is my natural hair (and that never happens)!! And did I mention that it smells really good?
A small amount goes a very long way and it is definitely worth paying the extra money.
I have seen a lot of negative reviews on this product, hopefully this will put your mind at ease when considering it.
