What Does Medium to Strong Hold Really Mean?
In the case of this Imperial Barber Pomade, the amount of hold you get when using it will depend both on the amount of product you put in your hair and just how damp your hair is when you use the pomade.
The drier your hair is, the stronger the hold will be once you style it. The wetter your hair, the less hold the pomade will give you.
However, it should be noted that this product is quite thick and gel like, making it a little harder to work through completely dry hair.
The nice thing about it is that once it is applied in your hair and your hair has dried, you can still restyle simply by dampening your comb and running it through your hair to loosen the grip of pomade enough to accomplish restyling. It will then once again dry and hold your hair very well.

Reviews for Imperial Barber Products Classic Pomade are extremely positive with many users stating that this is the best holding pomade they have found. However, not everyone agrees that it holds their hair the way they would like.
