Smells great and works like a dream. As an oil-based clay, the Apothecary 87. Clay glides into the hair and styles with ease. Build the hair up for volume or slick back for a more traditional look. It’s a product that I trust and love to use!

One word of warning, this product really does need shampoo to wash out!

How To Use

Warm a small amount of the clay between your hands. Apply product to the roots and work evenly, using your hands, throughout the hair. Style as desired.

    When I first started getting into hair styling products, Robin was the first content creator that I’ve watched and actually enjoyed. This is one of the products i’ve picked up due to his recommendations in his videos. I’ve had different results than what was shown in Robin’s video even though I believe our hair types are fairly similar. I have fine asian hair that is limp and hard to control. Anything to heavy would weigh it down and anything too light wouldn’t hold. The apothecary87 clay pomade has a really nice scent out of the products I’ve tried so far. The consistency is hella tough. Especially in the winter (good luck getting it out without warming it). Because it’s oiled based it does style really well. Instead of the product giving my hair volume and fullness, it left it in this really natural looking stranded look. I couldn’t layer it since the shine scale would just increase and the product was putting my hair in individual strands instead of making my hair look full. The product wouldn’t hold throughout the day but one good thing I guess was that it felt like nothing was in my hair. Lastly, hard as f*ck to wash out. Multiple shampoo rinses.
