Beach in a Bottle

Church Coastal Creme Pomade is a water-based, natural, nourishing hair cream made to rejuvenate dry and/or damaged hair, while adding volume for a more textured look. Part hair lotion, part leave-in hair conditioner, our 100% organic and botanical hair cream will "beachify" any hairstyle with hydration that comes from natural cream conditioning.

Church cream pomade has a natural and light finish, perfect for adding volume without too much hold. Our hair cream is ideal for people with long hair who want to nourish and treat their hair with all day conditioning, or for those with "normal" or medium length hair who prefer a natural, no-hold look.

Plant Protein 

An organic leave-in conditioner packed with super-nutrient plant oils like aloe, sandalwood, and golden jojoba oil to refresh and renew hair from the roots. 

Aroma Notes 

Cedar Atlas, Red Mandarin, Blue Tansy.

How much hold does hair cream have? 

Very light hold, with the perfect boost of volume. Ideal for those who want a natural look. To add more hold, "cocktail" (or mix) the Coastal Creme with a bit of the Volcanic Clay, to achieve a stronger hold version of the Coastal Creme pomade.

How to use styling cream: 

Emulsify a dime-size amount of of styling cream between palms and massage into hair. Apply to dry hair with fingertips for a natural vibe or comb into damp hair for a more stylized look. Uplifts hair + energy.

Wild Harvested and Organic 

Our products are only as good as the raw ingredients inside. To maximize the healing potential and minimize environmental harm, we use an ecological lens; from soil quality to regenerative farming practices to hand-harvesting, to minimizing waste - informing the ingredients we use and partnerships we form. We begin formulation by allowing the innate healing profile of every plant to guide our recipes. The final product is an homage to the elegant synthesis of medicinal abilities of plants working in beneficial ecology with the human body.
 

Barber Tested

Every product is reworked and client tested to perfection at our San Francisco barbershop, Church Barber. This important step in our formulation process means each product we bring to market has been worked with and fine tuned by both barbers and thousands of real people. Our initial goal was to build a versatile hair clay that yielded amazing results while also healing and protecting your head and hair. We were deeply disturbed by the amount of toxins and chemicals that bombard us through personal care and grooming products - poisoning our bodies and the earth. The Coastal Creme is a furthering of this mission; a synthesis of barber-approved and client-tested potent ingredients to nourish and transform your head and hairstyle. 
 

Biophotonic Glass 

We bottle our products in biophotonic glass - a thick, dark violet glass imported from the Netherlands. Biophotonic glass uniquely allows violet, ultraviolet + infrared rays to pass through the glass, each proven to preserve plant ingredients, while blocking the remaining harmful spectral light rays which lead to degradation as ingredients oxidize. Most products are bottled in low quality glass bottles with clear to amber hues which allow all forms of damaging light in, spoiling natural ingredients and requiring the use of chemical preservatives. Utilizing biophotonic glass replaces the need for preservatives, allowing Church California products to be 100% preservative free while protecting product potency and integrity to naturally enhance shelf life. 

Ingredients

24 Active Ingredients

Coastal Creme Pomade rebuilds, nourishes and styles hair - unlike most petroleum-based pomades that dry and destroy hair and scalp, our water-based, activated hair creme utilizes a potent emulsion of cleansing floral water, protectant fatty plant oils, and protein-rich botanical extracts. We hand select each plant ingredient and test each formulation for thousands of hours at our San Francisco barbershop. In lieu of lab-made preservatives, our raw hair clays are bottled in biophotonic glass jars to preserve ingredient integrity + potency. 100% Organic + Wildcrafted.

Great stuff!

I’m not normally a user of lighter hair creams, I have fairly thick hair and creams never worked for me. I was ordering the Church clay so decided to give this a try as a leave in conditioner to give some nutrition to my hair. And now…I’m sold! For days I want something a little more casual, a small dab of this gives me a just enough control with nice texture. This is the first cream I’ve met I will surely keep in stock. I use it with the clay when I want just a bit more hold. And it smells great!

Great product!

I love this stuff! It provides a good amount of hold while still keeping a light feeling to it, and I like that it's all natural.

The best hair cream!

This stuff is perfect - the smell, the texture it gives, it's exactly what I was looking for in a hair cream. It's not too shiny, but does give a little bit of a shine, and also gives my hair the weight that I like.
