pomade for Asian hair

The 5 Best Pomades for Asian Hair (2021 Guide)

The struggles with having Asian type hair is real.  It’s thicker and fuller because it has twice the diameter then Caucasian hair.   If you want to style it, you need a good hair product to do so.

I discovered pomade, and I can’t tell you how awesome this stuff is and how it has changed my hair life.  All pomades are great but it depends on your hair type and what style you are going for.  

I explain further in the article about that if you would like more in-depth information.  There are dozens of hair products to use, I’ve been lucky enough to have been able to try so many of them.

To pinpoint the product that works best for Asian hair is difficult because everyone’s hair is unique.  

But what I can do is let you see some of the pomades that worked for my thick wavy hair.

If you’re in a hurry, check out what I have been using daily because of how it holds my style for long hours during the day.

How to pick a pomade to use

I like to leave this up to you because it depends on what you want your hair to look like and do.  But here are a few tips to help you decide.

  1. If your hair is naturally oily, choose a matte finish.  This is because some pomades have more shine to it and that makes look almost wet, but if it’s slicked back, it looks really good.
  2. Is your hair dehydrated and dry?  I would recommend trying a heavy pomade like reuzel.
  3. Want your hair to have volume, use pomade on damp hair and then blow-dry while using a comb to get the height.

#1.Suavecito Firme Hold Pomade

Suavecito Pomade Original Hold - 4 oz

Suavecito is a fantastic smelling water-based pomade.

One of the more sought after pomades because it’s made by people who use it.  With their formula, you get long lasting hold, great smell and a product that you can use to style any hair.

  • Water soluble, washes it out easily.  No greasy mess.
  • Holds great, strong enough to last all day.
  • Applies in your hair very easy.
  • Smell is like a hint of cologne and cedar.
My Rating:
5 out of 5

Easily the most talked about pomade out there because of their heavy branding.  You might have seen these guys at concert festivals, tattoo conventions, biker bars, where ever cool dudes are gonna be, they will be there.

Their story goes way back in to the 90’s where the rockabilly scene was kicking off.  As it turns out, pomade was only available if you ordered it from overseas. 

So they eventually realized they could make their own, so they did and they made it to work for them!  My barber introduced me to them, and I have been a big fan as so many others are as well.

Suavecito Pomade

I like to say this is the perfect pomade for thicker hair.  As I mentioned it was recommended by my barber, I liked it so much I went back a bought a jar for myself.

It is a water-based that has the strength of gel and hairspray.

The nice thing with it being water subtle is you can easily restyle with just a little more water

The color is a transparent-brownish tint, not my personal favorite.  I like clear or reddish tints. Either way, it makes no difference.

The smell is a nice lite cologne sent.  Just enough to give a good smell to a passing stranger.
