Singapore Pomade Enthusiasts Pre-launch Reviews (not influencers):
From: Justus Ong
Consistency: resembles a matte paste. requires the tiniest bit of pressure to scoop out.
Application: i was very pleased with this aspect, as there was almost no tug and pull. of course there was some resistance that usually comes with a strong hold product, but it's totally acceptable and nothing to worry about.
Styling: very easy. with the resistance that came with the application, styling was pretty quick and my hair was done in no time.
Texture: more on the finer side.
Endurance: stellar. no need for restyling and even if your hair moved out of place, you could push it back into place easily.
Washability: one good shampoo wash did the trick.
Final verdict: no reason not to give it a perfect 5/5. get it asap.
From: Kester Tay
Good endurance. Behaves like a matte paste. Strong and pliable on initial style, then relaxes into a natural plump feeling that doesn't stiffen up at all. Very nice!
Would recommend to market this as a matte paste or clay at best, as it ticks all boxes for a super perfect matte paste. Just does not feel like a clay pomade (slicker) and may be confusing to call this a clay pomade.
Perfect consistency in a clay for me - it's got good thickness in the scoop yet creamy
It's a true dry clay that applies into the hair so smoothly, with a little bit of good and promising grip, and yet still has a true matte finish
But breaking it down feels creamy, almost pasty, and pleasant
I'd describe this as closer to a creamy scooping, matte paste product that is lighter in weight than the heavier clays like Stickmore and Cavalier.
Reminded me a lot of Anarclay as well as Arcadian Matte Paste in performance, but this has higher hold than Anarclay, and lighter weight and less dry/grippy than Arcadian Matte Paste.
I would not say it's a clay pomade (though it can certainly do a clean style) but clay pomades tend to be slightly on the slicker and conditioning side, more like a pomade.
It's a fantastic clay/matte paste product!! And deserves to be sold internationally like the other Homebrew products.
From: Nicholas Song
Superb, it remains present throughout, always allowing for a quick brush up / restyle even towards the end of the day where hair is naturally oilier.
This is honestly one of the best performing homebrew products I've tried: period. It's everything id expect out of a matte product to perform in our climate. Looking forward to its release. Well done Gerson & Co.
From: Tan Chor Theng
Pretty great. 3-4h easily under the heat. Indoors maybe 6-8h. Get this out on the market!

I have thick course wavy unruly hair. This actually works and is rework able throughout the day. Works best if hair is dry. Which doesn't work best for me bc I frizz out dry. The hold just isn't as strong if hair is damp- it tends to take awhile to dry on me. But overall if this was sold in the US I'd buy it again. Shipping is quite spendy. It's a pretty solid product that's easy to warm up and apply. I personally couldn't smell that it had a scent. Others say it's great. Overall it's an excellent product for me all things considered (my difficult hair).
PS I'm a woman and my go to product is Crafted matte paste. Which is far more drying than G&CO but that's fine when applying to wet hair. Just for a comparison.
Solid product, probably the best hair styling product coming out of Singapore! Great pliable hold without weighing the hair down. Came with a free sample of their OWB pomade too.

Somehow this product gets better through the day. More texture and volume with no loss of endurance.
Strong hold with smooth application.
