Mentega Classic Hair Pomade
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.
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.
Mentega Lagoon combines some of the best characteristics of traditional oil-based pomade but with water-based attributes such as water-solubility, minus the greasiness. It is designed to be a grippy strong hold pomade with a low shine finish—not overly matte but 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, although slightly grippier. There will be minimal build-up when a heavy amount is applied.
This is the short version of the Swim Salt Spray. It’s palm-size and flight onboard carry friendly.
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
Product Quantity: 1.7 fl oz
Scent: Zesty breeze

Muddy is a thick and dense styling clay that has the highest hold in our range of hair styling products. With a strong matte finish, it can style natural looks or lock in aggressive styles with coarse textures and hold. It can also serve as a styling product to detail specific areas of your hairstyle to create accents.
We recommend taking small multiple scoops during styling to allow the product to distribute evenly in the hair.
