Coldlabel’s first products, Premium Wave & Scalp Butter & Wolfin’ Pomade are all natural balms that contain certified organic ingredients. They contain natural oils that penetrate the scalp, and feed the hair with nutrients, proteins, and essential fatty acids while it holds for style.
Premium pomades do not contain petroleum. (petrolatum, soft paraffin, white paraffin, or mineral oil). Petroleum products coat the hair and lock out necessary moisture. These make the hair look artificially slick and greasy. Hair then begins to dull after it attracts dust and dirt. It accumulates on the scalp and does not allow it to breath or the sebaceous glands to work properly. Common petroleum-supported ailments include seborrheic dermatitis (infected sebum), candidiasis (yeast overgrowth), dandruff (dry, itchy scalp), and acne vulgaris, (pomade acne). Demand better.
Premium Pomades improve the health and overall condition of the hair and scalp & leave the hair with a noticeable natural luster.
Coldlabel is proud to create these natural balms for those who know they deserve better than many of the products on the market today. We offer our Premium Pomades to everyone who appreciates the quality and effectiveness of natural products.
