Introduction

Daimon Barber, a premium brand created by home brewers Leo Neelands and Steve Crosby. Known for its range of hair products, skincare and fragrance, this company at heart believes in using natural product, free from harmful chemicals and innovating the next generation of grooming products.

After hearing many good things about their hair styling products especially on its strong hold, we can’t wait to get our hands (hair) on their latest formula, the Fixing Pomade (formerly known as No. 5). Let’s check it out how did it fair in a hot and humid climate.

The design is pretty consistent throughout their hair product range, clean and simple. The gel pomade is stored a dark red maroon glass jar with a matte black cap. It is 100g and guarantee flight friendly as hand carry item.

Scent

Smoky, Woody Oud and Egyptian Mallow.

Texture & Application

The texture is totally similar to a hair gel product. It is translucent, easy to be scooped out and spreading them on your palm is effortless.  Similar to applying to your hair, it was done at ease with a comb. Unlike gel, it doesn’t harden after the application. In fact, it feels light and natural. Suitable for those with thin to medium hair thickness and volume. However with a thick hair like mine, it requires more gel to get a better hold. Restyling wasn’t a problem with some water and comb.

Shine

Medium Shine. For better shine, apply on wet hair. Towards the end of the day, it looks neutral.

This was not restyled with any water throughout the day.  The hold has toned down. But overall, I though it was a good messy look.

Water will get the job done easily. After washing, the hair actually feels softer and moisturized.

Verdict

If you are looking for a light product with medium hold and shine with great scent, I would recommend to have this. Especially if you are a fan of gel pomade, this is one of the best out there as it doesn’t hardens, restyling was easy throughout the day, and it feel so light and natural. On top of everything, the moisturizing feature differentiates itself from the rest.
