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.
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.
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!
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.
