"One of the best hair styling products out there. Must try." - S.P. (Basic Maintenance Client)

Redefine Your Style With The Ultimate Control & Care Hybrid

Goodbye styling products that leave your hair dry and unhealthy. This breakthrough pomade blends the nourishing power of a hair mask with a hold of a traditional clay.

  • Multitasking Excellence: Take complete control over your hair's look and well-being with a product that styles, repairs and hydrates all at once.
  • Medium Hold. Maximum Health: Enriched with fatty-acids, proteins and antioxidants, this pomade acts as your daily shield against hair damage.
  • Custom Creations: Add more hold and a brighter shine by adding more product. Our water-soluble formula washes out with ease no matter how much you use.

You deserve the best. Your hair deserves the best. Treat yourself today.

This multi-tasking, triple threat hair styler moisturizes and hydrates, repairs and prevents damage, and provides a strong hold and subtle lustre throughout the day. Then it washes out with ease.

Active-packed with proteins, fatty acids, polyphenols and antioxidants, it's a topical-storm of hair-friendly activity that:

  • Moisturizes and hydrates.
  • Combats oxidative stress.
  • Adds volume and thickens hair shafts.
  • Controls frizz.
  • Restores lost proteins. 
  • Repairs damage and prevents breakage.

Medium hold. Medium shine. Maximum health.

Antioxidant. Anti-inflammatory. Antimicrobial. Antifungal.

No guys wants to wear a hair mask. But what's a leave-in product most do use? A styling one. 

We took all the nutritional benefits of our conditioner and jam-packed them into a water-based styling balm that coats your hair in a direct dose of strength-building nutrients throughout the course of the day.

  • Suitable for all hair types and conditions - this multi-restorative styling balm was formulated for anyone looking to make the most of their time - and their hair - with as little effort as possible.

This product was designed to be as versatile as you are.

  • Pick your shine. For a "dry" look, apply to dry hair. For a shinier look, apply to wet hair.
  • Pick your hold. More product = more hold.
  • Pick your look. For "messier" looks, use your hands. For "slicked" looks, use a comb.
  • Warm this product up in your fingertips by rubbing both sets of fingers together in counter-circular motions. It should be evenly distributed across the fingertips, and is now ready to apply. (You will repeat this process if you need more product).
  • Target the roots first. The base of the hair shaft is where you take control over your hairstyle, since that’s where you influence its direction.
  • Apply to whatever part of your head you want your hair styled.
  • Comb it through or massage it in.
  • Air dry or blow dry. A dryer increases the longevity of the hold and gives hair a lift, which can be useful if you want to perk it up a bit.
  • Wash it out with with ease. Completely water soluble.

Excellent pomade

One of the best hair styling products out there. Must try.

Jared Kwart
My new go-to pomade

I've used a lot of different hair gels and pomades over the years. American Crew has been the one I use day-in, day-out until now. This one is easily my favourite. Works great, leaves no residue, and love that it has some added benefits, too.

Great idea!
