As an Asian-American man, my hair is characterized as thin but with many strands, grows straight out in all directions, and is just a general pain to style right. I mean, I gotta hand it to the Caucasians, their hair is easier to work with and they get the bonus ability to grow a magnificent beard; all I can do is grow a pedo-stache. But that doesn’t mean that us Asian’s can’t use products to get our hair where we want. Just because you’re Asian doesn’t mean your hair has to be difficult. That’s where LayRite Super Hold Pomade comes in. Read on for my review of LayRite Super Hold for Asian Hair.
Long Lasting Hold
Our first characteristic that we are going to review on is how long does the product hold in your hair? From my experience, this pomade, after drying, lasts all day plus more. It will stay in your hair for as long as you want it to. I’ve had nights when I slept with it on and it’s still in my hair the next day keeping it intact. I’ve had nights when I’m at a musical event, thrashing around, doing lightshows and cuddling with some random stranger and my hair stayed exactly how I styled it. I’ve had days where I go frolicking in Disneyland where I ride Space Mountain and California Screamin’ 52 times, and my hair still stayed exactly how I styled it. Now, these might be a slight exaggeration, but you get the point.
Needless-to-say, this product holds REALLY well. I mean, they wouldn’t call it LayRite Super Hold for any reason. This product is true to its name and I firmly stand by how long this product will last in your hair.
How Strong is the Hold?
Much like how I discussed before, this product not only stands the test of time, but also excels in the strength category as well. Although it isn’t something like Got2B Glued, where that product is basically Elmer’s Glue for your hair, it definitely has good grip on your hair.
What Hair Styles Will This Work With?
Here is a list of styles that LayRite Super Hold works really well for:
- Textured crew cuts
This is a perfect entry level type of pomade with good hold and high shine. Just make sure that when you are using this product, that it is the desired effect that you want. Not all situations call for high shine hair products. If it were me, I would be using this product when I want that clean part with a slight pomp in order to give that classic look. Otherwise, if I wanted that matte look, I would go with the Mister Pompadour Natural Beeswax Paste for Men. You can also check out my review of the Mister Pompadour Natural Beeswax Paste here.

Pros & Cons
Now that you have a good understanding of how the product works, it’s time to talk about the pros and cons of this product.
This product is the first pomade that I have ever used. Since then, I have tried other products, but I always find myself keeping a jar just in case the situation calls for it. These situations being classier events that require that clean, classic look. It’s very inexpensive for the amount you get, the smell is great, the hold is great, and it lasts an incredibly long time. All-in-all a good product with many benefits and high value.
There’s only 1 real con that I have about this product and that is if you don’t work it into your hair, then you can end up with a glob of product that is pretty visible and embarrassing. Best to just work it into your hair and make sure it’s evenly spread throughout your roots and crown.
The verdict is…. YES. This product is very good and brings a lot of value. 4oz for a decent price point lasts around 2 months for me when I’m using around the size of a quarter for styling.
I would only use this product if I was going to a formal event, or an event that requires me to have a more “put-together” look. The main reason is because of how much shine this product has. Remember, your hair doesn’t have to be confined to 1 style your whole life. You should style your hair based on the occasion and the setting. It’s like the person that wears the same heavy sweater during the heat of the summer. Why are they wearing a sweater in the blazing heat? The attire doesn’t match the occasion. Don’t be that person.

BONUS: Styling Tips
Here are some styling tips with the LayRite Super Hold Pomade that you can adopt:
- Towel dry your hair after you wash it.
- Depending on how dry your hair is, the stronger the hold will be. (QUICK TIP: If you want your hair to have the freedom to move more, apply when your hair is more damp. If you want your hair to be stiff as a rock, apply to completely dry hair).
- Identify your part and then form it with a comb.
- Comb your hair to your desired style.
- Let your hair dry.
