It depends on what you have for hair, so the hair type, and whether it has special styling desires.
Ever More unruly and krauser hair the harder the pomade might.

The already mentioned “Dope girl” by Rumble59 is E.g. a medium pomade and in this respect an ALLROUNDER for all types of hair. The scent is great anyway, and the design is very cute.
For the styling of curls with curling iron or otherwise with heat or naturally curly z. B is especially the “Marcel curling wax” pomade by Dax. This is a real vintage hairstyling product that smells of tulips.

Pomade can not really be for fine, long hair volume at the base. To do this, mousse and blow drying is more appropriate. For the top, against Frizz, gloss and styling certain parts it is highly recommended but with fine hair.
