Is Volcanic Clay Pomade right for you?

Our Volcanic Clay is a water-based, matte finish hair clay that adds volume and all day hold, yet is easy to wash out and good for your scalp. Ideal for those who want texture while maintaining a natural finish, the bentonite clay binds hair follicles together to add more volume while also providing hold for styling purposes.

If you have very thick hair, and/or you are looking for a very strong hold in order to achieve a locked-in look, you’ll want to check out our Sun Wax Pomade, which is our strongest hold hair styling product. If you’re looking for a lighter hold for an even more natural look, you’ll want to consider our Coastal Creme Pomade, which has our lightest hold.

26 Active Ingredients

Church Volcanic Clay Pomade rebuilds, nourishes and styles hair - unlike most petroleum-based pomades that dry and destroy hair and scalp, our water-based, activated hair clay 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 prior to launch. In lieu of lab-made preservatives, our raw hair clays are bottled in biophotonic glass jars to preserve ingredient integrity + potency. Church Pomades are always made only of 100% Organic + Wildcrafted Ingredients.

How To Use Volcanic Clay Pomade

Circulate a dime-sized amount of our matte hair clay between your palms to warm and emulsify the product, use your fingertips to apply evenly through damp or dry hair.

For a natural and less-defined look, apply our matte hair clay directly to dry hair and use hands and fingertips to style.

For a sleeker and more refined finish, apply your hair clay to damp or towel dried hair, and use a comb to style as desired.

Barber Tested

The Volcanic Clay Pomade was tested by barbers and trialed by customers for over a year at Church Barber prior to launch. We made over 50 iterations before settling on the final product, each one an improvement over the previous, until we knew it was perfect.

Best Clay Ever

Fantastic product with quick shipping. Firm hold that lasts me all day. Perfect consistency for clay. Washes out cleanly and easily. Nice mellow, somewhat minty sent, but not overpowering like so many other products. Speaking of other products, many will leave me flakey with scalp irritation with regular use but not this guy. This was my first purchase but I’ll be buying for life - it’s no wonder that California Church clay pops up in most “Top 10” mens hair product searches on the web. 10/10.

Excellent hair product with quality, organic ingredients

This stuff really gets the job done. Good hold, moldable, lasts a decent long time. Texture is not too slick, really great matte look. The smell is nice, kind of reminds me of a beach. If you are conscious of the chemicals and very unhealthy ingredients of the vast majority of similar products, as I am, this product is definitely for you! As a side note, the container it comes in has a very cool design and a nice weighty feel to it. In my opinion, with this stuff you can look your best, smell nice, and feel good about what's being absorbed by your body!

Best Hair Product , Ever.

Honestly THE BEST hair product I’ve ever used. I never write reviews bc I’m always busy … but I had to take the time for this one. A lot of products clog my scalp and make it prone to dryness and occasional breakouts underneath my hair . This will NOT do that. It’s really only the product I want to use for styling my hair . Not only that, it smells great and love the natural ingredients👍🏻
