Suavecito needs no introduction. It is one of the world greatest pomade brand. However, instead of just producing well-crafted grooming products that work, they committed in creating a cultural phenomenon by expanding to custom car, motorcycle, tattoo and barbering.
Suavecito has been producing limited edition pomades later based on the different seasons. This is one of their two Spring Limited Editions, but we have selected the Firme (strong) Hold product. While this product provides a fresh scent, let’s see how it performs in a humid climate. Let’s jump into it!
United States of America
Water Based Pomade
Orange. That’s the main colour theme for their packaging, not missing out their trademark Suavecito Skeleton design. Housed in a plastic container, it is light and weights at 113g.
Cedarwood and honey are the dynamic duo in this sweet, earthy scent. Green apple and Jasmine add a crisp aroma to musky base notes. In short, refreshing and clean scent.
Texture & Application
The texture is very similar to its original pomade, a little less sticky as compared to Barbers Pomade. Nothing else is extraordinary, just like what we expect of how a pomade should be. It has a orange translucent colour and when rub on the palm, it’s smooth and slightly sticky.
For best hold result, apply on a damp hair. Rub a small amount on the palm, and slowly spread throughout from front to back. Use a comb for a more tidy look or pompadour styling.
It does harden the hair after awhile to keep the style in place.
Medium Shine. For better shine, apply on wet hair.
Strength & Endurance
Strong Medium Hold (for a humid climate)
Towards the end of the day, the hold might wear off but it can be restyled easily with water.
Works both for indoor and outdoor activities.
Front View: 8 A.M. (Before) Even with my thick and stubborn hair on the side, it manage to keep it tight. It does harden the hair after 1 -2 hours of styling.
Front View: 8 P.M. (After) After 12 hours, with some restyling (water), the hold is still strong.
Side View: 8 A.M. (Before) Side parting – clearly defined.
Side View: 8 P.M. (After) Loosen a little on the side but still manageable
Easily washed off with water. No sweat.

If you have used their previous firme hold products, this is the same in terms of its performance. Have a good hold overall though I wouldn’t advice for intensive workout or related activities. An oil based like Lockhart Authentic Pomade would be better. Having said that, this is a very refreshing pomade especially with this new scent. Very easy to use for styling and washing off.
