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.
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.
The Analogue Paste is the brainchild of Mentega. The Oven Cuttery barbershop and solid cologne company, Analogue Apotik. This product is our most versatile one yet. It controls hair by having the flexibility and slickness of an oil-based pomade and applies effortlessly like a soft paste.
Strong hold, medium shine with the scent of a classic cologne. Imagine having a heavy and slick product that feels lightweight but also washes out easy. No frills.
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.
