Pomade

Pomade (/pɒˈmd/; French pommade) is a greasy or waxy substance that is used to style hair. Pomade makes hair look slick and shiny, and does not dry it out. It lasts longer than most hair care products, taking up to several washes to remove. The original pomade of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries consisted mainly of bear fat or lardLanolinbeeswax, and petroleum jelly have been used extensively in the manufacture of modern pomades.
Stiffening properties of pomades make sculptured hairstyles such as the pompadouror quiff possible; while long lasting moisturizing properties make it popular with individuals with Afro-textured hair .
