REVIEW: The Pomade Shop's LinoMoist Conditioning Pomade

This product review is sponsored by The Pomade Shop.

Company info:
"LinoMoist Conditioning Pomade combines the nourishment of a moisturizer with the styling action of a pomade.

The name "LinoMoist" is partially derived from linoleic and linolenic acids. The ingredients in "LinoMoist", namely castor, sunflower, and sesame oils are rich in linoleic and linolenic acids, a.k.a. omega fatty acids. These acids are said to restore luster to dry and brittle hair, and add elasticity to the hair.

Directions for enjoyment: Apply a nickel- to quarter-sized amount to wet or dry hair for added moisture and/or to prep your hair for styling."

"The LinoMoist Conditioning Pomade combines the nourishment of a moisturizer with the styling action of a pomade.  It can be used on wet and dry hair, and is especially recommended for dry and coarse hair.  It smells like mango papaya.  It can be used to moisturize and style the hair.  It has a light, lotion-like texture and does not build up on the hair.  It can be used to nourish parched ends.  It is equally suitable for natural, relaxed, and transitioning hair.  It can be used  on children's hair. 

"Ingredients: water, orange fruit extract, behentrimonium methosulfate, almond oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, sesame oil, optiphen"

Size: 4oz
Price: $14

My hair regimen(cliffnotes)
  • Co wash 1 to 2 times a month
  • Shampoo once every two months
  • Moisturize consistently for about 3 weeks straight, 3 to 4 times a week. There are times when I am so busy that I totally neglect moisturizing. 
  • Seal with coconut oil
  • Deep condition with Nunaat Karite every two months

A few weeks ago I received The Pomade Shop's Linomoist Conditioning Pomade. This is part of their new line of leave in moisturizers along with the Ceramoist Conditioning Pomade. It is water based, silicone free, and smells like juices n' berries. I mean the smell was so intense that it hit me before I opened the container. It came in a brown jar but they have since repackaged and are now sporting clear jars. I tested this product late Spring to now. I did this because I had to know how it would work with my sporadic hair care schedule, how to it would work in different seasons, and because my hair changes it's mind about products often.

Now on to the consistency. In my opinion it's not too thick and its not to thin. It has that perfect in between texture that doesn't weigh my hair down but isn't too light either. On my medium density strands it works great in terms of moisturizing and conditioning. A little goes a long way for me. I use about a dime to little less than a nickle sized amount on a 2 to 2.5 inch square section of hair. There's so need for me to be heavy handed because when ever I moisturize I always seal with coconut oil plus this product spreads throughout my strands easily.

I normally don't like to moisturize often because I have to deal with the clammy product buildup of silicone based products which means I have to wash and deep condition more often. I've noticed a big difference in how LinoMoist penetrates my strands compared to silicone based products. They always leave a coating and never feel like they've penetrated all the way. Whereas, LinoMoist truly penetrates my strands leaving no build up. There's no barrier between the product and my hair. My twist outs feel soft and there's no need to remoisturize every night(I moisturize about every other night about 3 times a week whenever I manage to be consistent).  My hair looks and feels better with consistent use. People have even made comments.

In conclusion I think that the size and price match because a little does go a long way. I definitely would purchase and keep this in rotation. I actually have gotten so used to this that I'll be using it way more than silicone based moisturizers. I say buy it and try it.
