Mentega Lagoon Water-based 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.
Scent: Orange Meringue Bloom
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.
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.
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 Creamy is as its name suggests—it smears smoothly in your hands, which makes styling easy. This hair styling clay has a matte finish for texture and its cream-like consistency providing definition.
