Layrite Superhold Pomade Review

We swear, its the best pomade ever. You’ve most likely never heard of it.

Layrite is a brand from the USA, and their philosophy aims to stay true to the barber tradition of sleek, stylish, back-combed hair. Their products aim to do the same.  Thus, the Layrite Superhold Pomade was made!

Layrite Superhold Pomade claims (on their product packaging) that they have a ‘High Hold’, ‘Medium Shine’ and is ‘Water Soluble’ as well. Let’s break it down one by one

I very much liked this hair product! It has definitely made the list of my go-to hair products for daily use (until I can find something better).  This product gets a
