Suavecito Pomade Review – UPDATED 2019

Many stylists and hair enthusiasts consider Sauvecito to be one of the top pomade producers worldwide. The products are considered as an all-in-one solution for men’s hair. Two of the Sauvecito products are the Matte Pomade, which doesn’t make you hair look too glossy, and the Firme Hold, which keeps your hair in place with extra strength.

The pomade from Sauvecito is available in a round container and the actual gel is a deep honey color. The pomade feels smooth on the hand, does not have any lumps or grains, and does not become sticky. The smell is reminiscent of masculine tones with a sweet after note.

Before application, a small amount of pomade is rubbed between your hands to heat the product and you can then apply it to your hair with ease, ensuring sufficient coverage over your hair. You can easily add more product throughout the day and it will wash out of hair without any difficulty.

Suavecito Matte Pomade Vs Firme Hold

Both products from Sauvecito are an excellent choice for hairstyling. The one you choose really depends on your personal preferences and style. If you are still uncertain about which one to choose then this comparison should help you make a pick.


The Matte Pomade and Firme Hold Pomade both come in a round white jar with distinctive labels featuring a skeleton busy styling his hair. The Matte Pomade has a dark brown/ black label with green accents, and the Firme Hold has the same dark colors but with a yellow-gold tinged label.

The actual pomade inside the jar does look slightly different from each other due to the difference in ingredients. The Matte Pomade has a lighter colour reminiscent of golden syrup. The Firme Hold Pomade has a darker color, which looks like thickened cola or dark coffee.  Neither products will change the color of your hair nor will they be visible to the eye.


The smell of both products is very similar. The fragrance from Sauvecito is made to be uniform across the range, with only slightly deviances. The smell is reminiscent of old-school masculinity and traditional cologne. The fragrance feels clean and musky vanilla tones bring a slight sweetness to the overall aroma.


The Matte Pomade has some hold but not nearly as much as the Firme Hold. The Matte Pomade will get you through the day but you may want to reapply some pomade if you are up for long hours or before going out for the night. The Firme Hold is rock solid and will ensure that no hair escapes from the style. The hold difference can actually be felt in the texture of the pomades: the Matte Pomade feels less thick than the Firme Hold pomade.  


Shine is where another big difference lies between the two pomades. The Matte Pomade has been created specifically for a more natural look and will not appear shiny at all. The Firm Hold Pomade will give a medium-shine to your hair.

Application and Styling

All hair products start to dry on your hair after some time. The pomades from Sauvecito dry relatively quickly but still give you enough time to style your hair. It is probably best to decide what style you want ahead of time and get straight into the styling part. The Matte Pomade is better for natural-looking styles that do not require harsh products, while the Firme Hold is preferable if you want a very styled, specific look.  

No matter what hairstyle you choose the products from Sauvecito is perfect for you. Grab your pomade and get ready to style your hair into a side part, quaff, pompadour or slick back. The universal styling capabilities of Sauvecito Pomenade ensure a fuss-free hairstyle with hours of good looks.
