In the late ’90s, the creators of Layrite opened their very hairdressing salon in California. The theme popular during those times were mainly inspired by the feel of the ’50s and ’60s. The vintage, rockabilly style set up of the barbershop immediately called for attention and charmed all the customers with it’s laid back ambience and excellent customer service.
One of the main struggles for the hairdressers at this salon was the oily nature of their customers’ hair. The hairstyles that the customers desired were close to impossible to achieve with the amount of grease they had in their hair. Only after rigorous washing, would most of it clean off. This frustration led to the creation of their successful range of water-soluble pomades. The first of all their pomades were the Layrite Deluxe Pomade. It was introduced to the world in 2001 and has been on the top 10 list of pomades ever since.
Types of Layrite Pomades
After the first Layrite Deluxe Pomade (also known as Layrite Original) was out, the brand came up with different variations of it, offering unique holds and shine. They are called, Layrite Superhold Pomade & The Layrite Super Shine Pomade.
Layrite Deluxe Pomade (Layrite Original)
This pomade is closest to its original formula. It provides a stronghold and high shine.
Vanilla Scent: This pomade retains it the original vanilla scent. It’s a mild fragrance but does not feel feminine or overwhelming.
Wet & Dry Application: Some pomades work only on damp hair while others are created to be applied just to dry hair. This pomade, however, is adaptable to both and gives a unique effect as per the dryness of the hair.
Long-Lasting: Just a tiny scoop of the product will hold your hair in its place all day, without making your hair feel rough or crusty to touch. The product will last you for long even with daily use.
Weighs hair down: Men that want to recreate hairstyles such as the pompadour will find it difficult to make the hairstyle maintain it’s height using just this pomade. Using it with a hair spray should fix this.
Layrite Superhold Pomade
If you’re one of the guy’s that needs a pomade to last him for long hours without any fuss of restyling, then you need to add this orangey, jello-like substance to your daily grooming needs.
Holds like wax: Most of the pomades make this claim, however very few actually live up to it. The Layrite Super Shine Pomade does stand by what it says on the pack and does so without giving you the complications of using hair wax.
Shine: It gives the hair a medium shine without giving it a greasy look.
Easy Application: Apply it evenly to your hair while it’s damp. It does not dry up very quickly, thus giving you, ample amount of time to style your hair before it completely sets.

Loses effect on long hair: If your hair is longer than six inches, this pomade will not tame the stray hair, as strongly as you’d want it to.
