Kühn hair cream acts like a wax based pomade in that it doesn't get crunchy. You can easily restyle with your hands or with a comb. But, unlike a wax based pomade it won't leave your hands or head feeling greasy and it washes out easily. You'll notice how soft your hair will feel from the shea butter and conditioning waxes. It does have a slight shine to it, but it won't look greasy or waxy. It doesn't have a really strong hold, so if you want a spiked look, go with kühn hair clay. This is also great for guys with long hair. It will give your hair a nice conditioned feel and will leave it healthy and shiny.
