[Pre-order] Mentega Lagoon Water-based Pomade
The Mentega Lagoon Water-based Pomade is our take on a hairstyling product that contains some of the best characteristics of traditional oil-based pomade but with water-based attributes such as water-solubility and without greasiness.
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.

For the longest time, we desired to create a water-based (mostly for its water-solubility) pomade that has a phenomenal hold but sits well in between a product that is slick and something that has texturising abilities. The goal was to create a strong holding product without too much hardening (like with a gel-type product) to retain the ability to restyle; hopefully there won’t even be a need to restyle due to the sufficient hold.
With the hot and sunny weather in Malaysia (summer all year long), strong hold products easily break down. We needed something that really worked in our climate. To achieve this, we knew we need two anchoring elements – hold and endurance. We did this by introducing new blends of ingredients to reinforce the product hold.
Emphasising on the water-based value of the product, we decided on the name Lagoon, as well as blue to be the product colour to symbolise the water element and an antipodal to the heat of the weather.
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.

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.
