This was the very first product that founder of Mentega, Kevin formulated in his home kitchen. Pomade-making was only a hobby to begin with, and there were no plans to commercialise the products or to create a brand. It was a simple formula made for simple needs. This formula was also his first encounter with oil-based pomade. Having no prior experience with using traditional oil-based pomade, you could say that this was truly an original formula.
The formula was tweaked to Kevin’s personal preferences, and for the next few years, this was the only product he used. Living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, it’s summer all year with a lot of humidity. The oil-based product had to be strong enough and without feeling too greasy to be used in such weather and climate.
Soon, he began making batches for friends who asked about the product, and later, for even more friends. Eventually, it was only natural that it led to the birth of the Mentega brand. So, here it is, the first-born of Mentega. The Classic Hair Pomade.
Great things seem to come in a band of three. Here are our travel size Mentegas from our hair grooming line – the Classic Hair Pomade, Creamy Hair Clay and Lagoon Water-based Pomade. The jr. bundle allows you to have the whole collection and meet your different styling needs at the palm of your hands.

Mentega Lagoon jr. is the little one of our Mentega Lagoon Water-based Pomade.
Mentega Lagoon is designed to be a strong hold pomade with a low shine finish — not overly matte but also not too shiny. It has the versatility to style a slick and tight or a more natural look. It is also re-stylable throughout the day like traditional pomade. If heavy amount is applied, there will be a minimal amount of build-up.

We are proud to announce to you our latest hair product, the Analogue Hair Paste. This project is a three way collaboration between Mentega, The Oven Cuttery and our good friends The Apothecary Malaysia.
We formulated this product to be a strong (yes, we mean strong) hold and slick product, but the cherry on top is in its element of scent — the expertise of The Apothecary Malaysia.
Being a hair product brewery that also runs a barbershop, we’ve had the opportunity to make various types of products while being able to learn about people’s hair grooming needs. With this partnership, we took it another notch.
You now have a product with excellent hold and slickness with a scent to die for.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Beeswax, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Propylene Glycol, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Sodium Borate, Potassium Sorbate, Polysorbate 20, Essential Oils
Product Quantity: 4oz

Looks like butter; feels like butter. The Mentega Classic Firm Hold is an oil and wax-based pomade, designed to be your hair’s daily dairy.
It has a firm hold with medium shine. It is made with nourishing ingredients such as cocoa butter and essential oils. Being an oil-based product, it is normal that it requires several washes before it comes off completely. The product residue after washing is commonly known as “build up”, which helps with keeping the hair in shape (not to mention, its moisturising benefits!) and require less product during the next application.
Packaged in a solid glass jar is 6oz of goodness, so you can butter it up as much as you’d like.
