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.

Picture yourself taking a dip in the sea or the pool (without the chlorine) and slowly feel the water create a lift in your hair and the grittiness in between the strands as the air brings your hair back to its natural form. The Salt Spray takes you for a swim to get all the volume and texture in your hair without even dipping your feet.
The Swim can double as a pre-styler for volume, texture, control and flow, as well as a standalone product for an un-styled look, which helps you direct your hair intentionally. This is what creates the effortlessly styled profile.
Instructions: Shake bottle well. Spritz evenly on dry or slightly damp hair and blow-dry for best results. Air-dry to achieve a more effortless look. Spray more pumps for extra texture and volume. If used as a pre-styler, use a primary product such as pomade, clay, paste etc. after Swim has completely dried in hair. Blow-dry for best results.
Ingredients: Aqua, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Magnesium Sulfate, Aloe Vera Gel, Polysorbate 20, Glycerin, Essential Oils

Scent: Zesty breeze
The invention of the hair cream in the late 1920s set in motion a path that would change the market in the hair grooming industry. The hair cream did not only serve as an alternative for hair oil, which was created for shiny and slick hairdo’s and to soften hair, but also to be less greasy, cleaner and water-soluble.
Since then, the hair cream became a staple and man’s true best friend. There’s no better time than now to pick it back up from the shelf where you (or your grandparents) left it.
The characteristics of the Mentega Whippy Hair Styling Cream are simple but significant – high shine, light hold coupled with heavy slickness, which gives you all the control you want and has effortless flexibility by softening and moisturising hair. It sure will keep you a well-groomed fellow!
Instructions: Scoop product from jar and rub it in palms. Apply through dry hair. Style as desired. Store with lid tightly closed and away from heat.
