Ponsonby Pomade is a water based, nutrient rich product that treats the hair and scalp while you use it.
Sangre de cargo or 'Dragon’s Blood' is a natural tree resin that combines with Harakeke (NZ Flax oil) to treat and balance the scalp while Argan oil attacks split ends and promotes healthy hair growth - in one wave of the metaphorical comb, Ponsonby Pomade is redefining the category, proving that a pomade can both style your hair while also protecting it from damage, calming the scalp with natural, active ingredients that leave both hair & scalp feeling clean and healthy.
Hold factor - medium with a high shine suitable for a wide range of looks and styles. We have used a bespoke slightly medicinal fragrance to evoke sweat, spice mystery and in an effort to avoid having you smell like a toffee.
Water based which means that it’s water-soluble and that it can easily be washed out, but is still weather resistant. Non greasy, no unwanted build-up.
No petroleum means it’s easy on the earth and easy on your head whilst delivering and maintaining perfect shape and hold.
With a nod to Auckland’s artery of style Ponsonby Pomade aims to turn heads with the same ethos that the patrons of Auckland’s Ponsonby Road have displayed for generations, that is, work hard, play harder and look great at both.
