Since my last post ended shortly, I’m going to follow up on it now.
As shown in the videos I’ve linked, that’s is a clear example of using TOO MUCH POMADE! For the most part, the pomades we use are petroleum based. But we still need our hair be able to breathe, so when you cake that much pomade on your head, well… You can only imagine!
I highly doubt people use pomade on rainy days, or else it’ll just wash right out into your eyes. So of course, people mainly use it on nice days/sunny days. One thing you need to understand is, that too much pomade, will actually cook your scalp. Think about it, this stuff is like grease. Shit, it is grease! And when you’re under the hot sun, your scalp is taking the full force of the suns rays. Virtually cooking your scalp. So you don’t want to use too much.
I’m not saying that I wear a hat everytime I’m out in the sun. I usually only wear hats during the evening, when I’m too lazy to do my hair. Kind of pointless huh? Oh well. But, I also don’t cake on pomade!
Here is a little photo set, showing the amount of pomade I use, on average. Also how it should look, before applying.
As captioned, that’s actually a bit much! But my hair was completely “cleansed” of all pomades, so I was re-applying a generous amount for the week to come!
All you really need is that much, at most. I will usually take a little bit extra, just for around the ears and what not. But for the top of your head alone, that is a lot of pomade.
My hands look creepy as hell…
That’s how my hands look when I “slathered” that pomade across both hands. Evenly coat both hands. Or else you will get clumps of pomade in your hair. Notice how you can still see the thick consistency of the pomade? NOT FOR LONG!
After thoroughly coating your palms, you’re gonna wanna rub your palms together. This softens up the pomade. Making coating your hair, a lot easier. Notice how “translucent” the pomade is now. Now it’s ”ready” to be put into your hair.
A lot of people don’t do this step and complain about X pomade being too difficult or “harsh” to apply. The only “pomade” I had problems doing this with, was High Life (Heavy,) because it was a damn wax. But anything else, Murray’s, Dax, anything thicker, will easily apply doing this. It’s not hard either!
Step 1: Clap hands together.
Step 2: Rub hands together for 10 seconds or less.
Step 3: Fin_
It’s that simple people!
You don’t need to cake anything on your head. If ever, you have to use that much excessive amount of any product, you’re just doing it wrong! Plain and simple. Do you ever cake on lotion on your face, so it looks like your getting a facial? (A or B kind of facial, take your pick.) No, and if you do, WTF.
