The barber industry has definitely seen a resurgence in the last few years. Lady Jane's have popped up at every corner. straight shaves are sought after. With these changes comes the pomade industry changes too. Working behind the chair for over ten years, I've seen a great influx of water based products overtake the oil based market. We've come a long way from the Dapper Dan Pomade! These days a wide array of products are available. They can be categorized by many adjectives like cream, clay, gel, and paste, all listed under the "pomade" label. In light of so many options its surprising there aren't many that will actually benefit your hair.
Level Headed Pomade has created a product that combines both the moisturizing, repairing aspects of oil and the wash out ease of water based. Our healthy hair pomade does wonders for you as well as the environment. It is oil based, which refers to its majority makeup, however, it washes out quicker than most water soluble hair pomades. This allows for heavy nourishment of hair strands and scalp without the endless use of shampoo to wash out! It's really is the best of both worlds. We accomplish this by using a combination of orange peel extract (OPE) and ceteareth-25 (a good fatty alcohol) in our recipe. The OPE has active attributes including its great scent, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities. On the flip side, when OPE and ceteareth-25 are exposed to water, their inactive attributes kick in and help water mix with oil to wash away unwanted dirt on contact with water.
Our environmental initiative is to plant a tree for every product sold every month. This is made possible through contributions made to a non profit organization based in Vermont called One Tree Planted . Still not convinced? Try it for yourself and see! Thanks for reading!
