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.
The smell is ok 👌.
The hold is more of a medium than high hold.
The texture is great.
The ease of application is fine after emulsifying.
I think this could use more wax to make scooping it out easier? I’m no chemist, so don’t crucify me if I got that wrong.
Overall 8/10 - great score for me
FHS Clay is a 9/10
Victory crown Matte Clay 10/10
I’m usually a Northern Lights guy when it comes to Shear Revival, but I did love my first jar of American Gardens last year. Great product all around and loved the smell. I decided to get another jar this time around and it just wasn’t the same. The clay was extremely hard and it’s difficult to emulsify. The part I was most excited about was the smell, and even that was way off from what I experienced previously. Fairly disappointed but will chalk it up to bad luck.
Have been using the clay for a week now and don’t like how it really makes my hair seem very dry, with a lot of flyaway hairs. I understand that it is a Matt finish, but it just is not working for my short hair.
Incredible hold, fantastic scent & overall one of the top 3 post-stylers I’ve ever used. Highly recommend, shear revival has always blown me away.
I waited a month before reviewing so that I could get a full scope of the product and how it performs. I’m torn on how to review. Looking at it from a pure product lens, it’s amazing at everything it says. Great matte look with superior, strong hold. The scent is wonderful as well. It washes out easily but can also last for 2, sometimes even 3 days without using new product.
However, for me personally (with short/medium, straight hair) the hold is almost too good. The clay is…tough(?) to get out and mold into my hair, when I’m trying to go for a more natural look. If there was something with the same great matte look, and slightly more easier to form in hair, I’d be all for it. I hate mentioning a competitors product, but if the application was just a hair easier like hanz de fuko claymation, it would easily win everyday. If I’m using the wrong product let me know. Shear revival has my thumbs up as a brand for sure.
