Right, first things first; My hairline isn't what it used to be and my once lusciously thick hair has started to thin out as I get older. I still have relatively thick hair and my hairline isn't at the point of shaving or crew cutting just yet, which is why I was chasing a cream matte pomade that adds a bit of weight and volume. This Canadian pomade is awesome and really volumizes my short parted/messy hair like no other product I have used before. Easy to apply and isn't sticky or oily which is great. Plus it's a massive tin so this will last a long time even with daily application. Also, I'm a fan of the scent - smooth and subtle.
