American Gardens Clay Pomade
Using a combination of two past oil-based formulas, we created the American Gardens Clay Pomade. However, this time we’ve worked out a user-friendly experience by creating an aloe-based formula that washes out easily. To top it off, it features a wild orange & oak moss fragrance created with therapeutic grade essential oils.
Aloe Leaf Juice: Dandruff preventative for the scalp
Shea Butter: Deep conditions hair & skin
Kaolin, Bentonite, & Sea Clays: Helps strengthen roots & prevent hair loss while creating texture
Styler: Scoop a small amount, rub between palms, apply to towel dried hair. Style as desired.
Pre-Styler: Apply a small scoop in damp hair & blowdry to set a foundation for your style.

Crafted For One
American Gardens was crafted to be the more intense version of Northern Lights Matte Paste. Its namesake comes from a favorite movie of ours, American Psycho. The label is inspired by artwork found around Patrick Bateman's apartment in the movie.
All hair types & textures. Loom Deep Conditioning Mask is color safe, free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, dyes, mineral oils, GMOs, as well as all natural and plant derived.
Not sure why others claim this is hard to apply. It was really easy. Maybe it was reformulated? Reminded me a lot of Firsthand clay pomade which is a good thing. Gave me a more natural shine than matte which is also a good thing. If this has been reformulated, PLEASE keep the current rendition!
This is now my go to clay
I have searched endlessly for a matte finish/strong hold product with good ingredients that can make my fine hair look thick and stay in place all day without the thick heavy product feeling on my scalp. I thought maybe I was just asking for too much...until I tried American Garden's. It's perfect and as another plus it has a great scent to it. Don't be unervved if it seems hard as a rock when you first put your finger to it. Once you dig out the amount you need, and rub it into your hands and hair it becomes smooth and light. No complaints here and will definitely be buying again.
This product works amazing! I recommend applying into damp hair followed by blow drying, it makes the application a lot easier. The hold is a good medium hold for me and is easily re- workable throughout the day. I have medium length, thick hair and this product works great. The texture is also very nice, you get a matte to natural shine finish depending on how much you use. I highly recommend this product. Thank you Shear Revival for making quality products that are also healthy for the hair!
I'd seen reviews knocking this product for being difficult to apply. Whether the formula has changed significantly or what, I've found it incredibly easy to apply into dry hair which is my preference. There's a little tug and pull but it's nothing compared to some other home brews that I've tried. It has an excellent natural-to-dry finish and holds great throughout the day. This has replaced some other products as one of my favorites. I would give American Gardens 4.5 stars if I could, but only because I don't find the scent - which is to me, kind of like a citrus mixed with play-doh - overly enticing. However, that's extremely subjective, so YMMV.
