Do any 3c's use pomades?

I was just pondering trying it to lock in even more moisture but am wary of the feel of pomades on hair.
3c/4a. Very Fine and Thin.
Moisturizers: QB Burdock Root butter creme, Curl Junkie, Abba Pure Gentle leave-in
Styling Products: Curls Souffle, Curl Junkie Coffee Creme
Curl Cremes: Jessicurl Confident Coils
Conditioners: Deva Curl One, Mixed Chics DC, Nature's Gate Biotin
DT:AO Honeysuckle Rose, Coconut oil.
I use shea butter as a pomade/sealer. I also liked FX Molding Wax but I don't really use that as much as shea butter. Most pomades (I'm thinking you mean "hair grease"?) have petrochemicals in them so I don't use them.

My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)
Thank you BekkaPoo.

Are pomades for more kinkier hair types? I don't understand their use but I see it all the time displayed for the use of kinky hair.

As for your question my answer is I don't know, but I don't think that matters.. It depends on how you use it. When I apply my shea I use it on the ends for sealing. How are you thinking of using pomade?

My mother who has stick straight hair that doesn't hold a curl uses "hair grease" to keep her flyaways down. I'm trying to get her to use shea butter instead.

I never new anyone outside myself at the time that used it that was a person of color! My brother and mom still use it. She is 2a/2b and he is mostly 3a w/ a little 3b.

I use the John Masters Hair Pomade in combination with plain old jojoba butter as a sealer. I've been using it for about two months. The last week or so has been the first real test, as the dew points have been quite high, and so far, so good.

I went natural and it stopped working for me, even now i cant use it when my hair is straight because it wets my hair too much causing it to curl. Never met anyone with natural or curly hair that used it.

Hi!
I been using Kinky Curly Gloss Pomade for a couple of weeks now and I love it. It seems to work well for my transitioning hair and gives my hair a light shine without being greas
