Black and White Pluko Hair Dressing Pomade - Review

Hi Everyone!

As you know, my hair is curly. Recently though, as my hair has gotten longer & longer, I have been feeling like the weight is turning my curl into more of a wave. Today’s product, the Black and White Pluko Hair Dressing Pomade* has done a lot to change this! 

At first I was nervous abut using a pomade on my hair - it’s different to anything I’ve ever used before!My husband got excited when it arrived so I asked him to try it too so we could have a man’s point of view amongst all the oestrogen!

For those of you who don’t know (& I didn’t until Dan explained it!), a pomades can either be water or wax based. This particular pomade is a wax based. What defines a pomade from a wax is that most waxes dry to a solid, where as a pomade remains flexible, something I really like!

Let’s start with my husband:
On the first day Dan used the pomade we went to his parents house. His Mum hadn’t even said hello when she came out with “Your hair looks lovely Dan! Very defined!” A compliment from Dan’s Mum is high praise. Not because she rarely gives praise, but because she has exceptional taste!

Dan said: “It’s good”
Me: “Can you give me any more than that?”
Dan: “No, I like it.”
Me: “Ok…”
Dan: “I do find it stickier that wax”
Me: “Oh, that’s funny, I don’t at all!”
Dan: “Yeah, I have to wash my hands after using it”
Me: “See, I don’t at all”

My thoughts:
I was unsure about this product, expecting it to be waxy in texture & consistence. I was pleasantly surprised when I didn’t have to dig my hand into the tub forcefully to get any product into my hands. I found the scent a little odd when I initially used it. It went after a few minutes & is now something I barely notice. If you’ve read my post on the Umberto Giannini Curl Friends Jelly, you’ll know that I have felt my hair lacking in definition as it has gotten longer. The Black and White Pomade took the definition of my hair one step further than the jelly - I had my first ringlet since my days of short hair! I REALLY loved this! It holds my curls so well that it has allowed me to style my hair one day & wake up the next morning & be able to tie it up without crazy frizz for the first time! Saying this, the pomade doesn’t de-frizz my hair as well as some other products have done. I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as defined curls & no frizz. I think this product may just be the happy medium for my hair. So far, despite my heavy handedness, I have’t put too much product on my hair.

Winner of  Hair Magazine Awards Best High Street Wax on a number of occasions, the Black and White Pluko Hair Dressing Pomade is available in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Superdrug and Boots for £4.95.

Have you tried a pomade before?

Thanks for this review. I think I should give this a go. My hair has always been so curly and dry so i'd love to see what pomade will do to it.

Hi Tanya, how are you? I always thought pomade is a powdered beauty product from the baroque times to whiten hair wigs so (little beauty ignorant sorry) so thank you so much for closing my beauty knowledge gap ;) Your hair looks lovely and is this your natural curl or a perm? Your make up is flawless beautiful lady. Hope you're well and will have an awesome weekend. xxx

Great review. I hadn't actually ever heard of a pomade but know I know about it I may recommend it to a curly haired friend. Your hair looks stunning and super shiny.

Ah the struggle is real! I adore my curly hair (it's not as long or has as many ringlets as yours!) and the first day it's a dream, but second and third day frizz is the biggest pain! I've not tried a pomade before, mainly because if it's not curly, it's straight so I wouldn't need a product. I'm beginning to embrace the curls a little more now so maybe it's time I picked this up!

Thanks Sarah! I've really enjoyed using & will definitely buy another when it runs out! Xx

Hi Caz, I'm struggling but am not letting it stop me! How are you? A pomade may well be that too - names always have an origin so you never know... Thank you, that's very kind of you to say. My curls actually came about when I started taking one of my migraine medications! Aww!!! Your so sweet, thank you. Have a lovely bank holiday weekend! Xx

Thanks Hayley! I hadn't either - Dan had to explain it to me! Thank you, that's very kind of you to say. Xx

It really is! Yes - I know exactly what you mean! I condition my hair every day, the water helps create the curls & the conditioner stops it drying out & minimises frizz. How do you get your hair straight? The only time mine is ever straight is when it's been cut & the hairdresser does it! Embrace the curls!!!!!!!! Xx

Thanks Helen! I haven't found anything that defines my curls quite as well as this! Xx

Very interesting post. I always had it in my mind that a pomade was "oily". This definitely has been an educational post to me too. I like to wear my hair curly a lot of the time but struggle with frizz a lot.

Thanks, I'm glad it was informative. I think all of us curly girlies struggle with frizz, some more so than others. I did think this product helped with that though. Xx
